I disagree but very much appreciate your saying that. It's not the place for it and it's nice some (on both sides) recognize this.Jerks do sometimes need to be shamed though. I was dragged into WoW by an online friend who had never played anything multiplayer and was worried about getting harassed. As a long time gamer [that typing in of commands to cassette brought back memories evil & fond; the cassettes were awful, getting snuck in by a student to play Rogue on a VT101, biggest gaming thrill ever. The gal that did it was my first crush, thanks Lisa, wherever you are! There's an Oangband boss dedicated to you.] but hater of MMOs I reluctantly agreed.She was *very* nervous. Woman in her mid-60s. When, a week in, she was finally feeling more confident and the first harassment of her female toon happened she did a yell in SW: "[name] just hit on a black grandma of ten!". Boy did that jerk log quickly! It was non-stop laughter in the city for an hour. Female and male players both found her and started giving her gear and gold as thanks for kicking the twit in the nads. Never seen a better slap down real or virtual, and as a straight white 30-something guy, wish I could've done it. You don't mess with grandmothers!(I've told the story here before but I do so love it.)
