Aug 4th 2010 5:45PM I hope they don't crack down on griefing... unless they also crack down on adherence canon.
I've been known to disturb RPers on my server who ERPing, RP dragons, nobility, sparklevamps, and rape victims crying and mourning the deaths of their rape-babies that have been aborted by demon possessed characters (I have screenshots of this) and other such terribadness. I do so because they're bad, they're everywhere, walking around like everyone else, they don't even know that they're bad.

Aug 4th 2010 5:25PM Actually erotic roleplay IS cybersex.
ERP is a term coined by cyberserxers to try to make themselves feel more dignified and less dirty about having text sex. It doesn't matter if you're being yourself, pretending to be yourself as an elf, or pretending to be someone else entirely. It's still text sex.
The moment both your hands come off the keyboard is the moment you've crossed the line between IC and OOC. That's not good roleplay, that's just plain Bad™.
It is completely possible to RP a character and never play out sex on screen. Cybersex is not necessary for character development. You can always fade to black, if something important happened you can say so OOCly. Cybersex is purely there for people to get their jollies and really shouldn't be mislabeled as "RP" of any sort, it makes the non-ERPers look bad.
ERP is not dignified or something to be proud of, it's downright pathetic, in poor taste, and being done in an inappropriate place. I'm sure there's a place on Second Life where people can pretend to be their favorite wow characters and have all sorts of sex.
Often times I have an old, laggy computer, so I sit on a bench in Silvermoon where it's pretty. Perverts prowling for pornographic partners frequently proposition me and get offended and harass and insult me when I say no.
They proposition people they know nothing about. They don't know that I report perverts, they won't know if someone else they're propositioning is a minor. What happens if little Madison's mom sees? Are you going to have a partyvan outside your place of living and Chris Hansen at your door?
Why don't you have a seat right over there?
May 3rd 2010 2:52PM My raid team has never seen a pally/priest/warlock token drop in ICC, nor have we seen one drop in Ulduar until after it was no longer relevant content.
Approximately 50% of our 10 man raid team is on that token.
Mar 29th 2010 1:57PM Back in the day we used abolish disease, a downranked renew, and killed the skellies with oil of immolation.
A normal renew from a level 80 should, in theory, do the trick, as a level 80's renew is probably huge compared to a 60 (I don't remember my priest's numbers in classic, honestly).
Mar 2nd 2010 2:04PM My 10 man raid is 50% female.
Feb 16th 2010 6:06PM I hate seeing sensationalistic articles like this being posted here. There's a whole lot we don't know about this situation and a few things that raise eyebrows for me just from skimming the article.
We know very little about James Swan's life. We know very little about his living conditions. We don't know the whole story, the fact that it paints him as a villain (what he did was pretty screwy, but what drove him to that point?) without exploring the full situation is somewhat irritating.
I doubt this is a sudden freakout, it's probably been a long time building, this was just the straw that broke the camel's back.
For all we know there's abuse going on in the household. It could have been a lot worse--no one died.
For all we know this guy is working evenings and paying rent, maybe 10pm isn't such an ungodly hour for someone that works late? I mean, he can afford booze and WOW.
I must ask why is there a computer WITH INTERNET ACCESS in the bedroom shared by several small children?
Is it his computer? Is he paying for internet access?
What we can assume is that WOW and alcohol are his escape. (What's he escaping?) Maybe the five yowling kids the articles mention? That'd be enough to drive me to the bottle.
One article mentions that there are five young children in the house, that's a lot of kids. In one room?
Another article implies that the child thrown was not his sibling, but his son. If he's age 27 with a kid old enough to get involved in such a spat is a good reason to seek an escape. Maybe he got oopsied and wound up single with a kid as a result.
Further: Why is his last name different from his mom's and where's his dad?
Too many questions.
Too sensational and to incomplete a story. WTB full story plx.
Feb 16th 2010 4:34PM Asric and Jadaar are by far my favorites.
Feb 15th 2010 6:11PM In raids, my main holy shock targets seem to be myself, the other healers, and the tanks, with the occasional thrown on a random member of the DPS.
If I shock myself or another healer, it buys a raid healer time to top us off. When I'm two-healing, a well placed holyshock can mean the difference between success and a wipe.
