Jul 3rd 2010 2:49AM This is absolutely insane. I'm Jewish, my girlfriend's part black, we get to make racist comments at each other, in private.
When someone I don't know all that well (a raid member, in this case) makes some remark, however, I get a little irked. I don't remember what he said, but it was some Jew comment. Turns out another member of the raid was Jewish as well, and neither of us took it that well. To his credit, he spent the next three hours or so apologizing, and my fellow Jew and I went on to become friends.
But I can't even imagine someone I just happen to group with for a random spouting off such remarks. Someone calls me a yid, I'd vote-to-kick or drop group too. I think someone who feels that it's alright to make comments behind a veil of anonymity probably shelters some intolerant views in his own head, regardless of whether or not he's willing to be associated with them.
Anonymity is not free rein to say offensive things. Personally, for me it's the exact opposite. Very few people I play WoW with know me in real life. Thus, the persona I cultivate is one that's even more respectful and polite than I am behind the monitor. If you can't even be civil with almost non-existent personae, then whom CAN you be civil with?
I guess people just dissociate themselves from their internet faces. They realize that, at least to everyone else's perception, nothing they say reflects on THEM. They can get away with yelling "nigger kike noob," and no one will attribute that bile with Johnny Thomson who lives in Kansas City. And, honestly, are they wrong? Not really. They CAN hide behind the internet and get away with it. But, to quote a favorite, "No, you're not wrong. You're just an asshole."
