I am a representative of KarterGames
Players are currently matched up against one another in groups of five. We are well aware that one player's trolling will ruin the game for others, so if you see someone intentionally dying to the enemy team over and over in hopes of giving them free kills, please report them.
But since people want their reports to catch our attention sooner, players have made the habit of "asking for reports". This is telling other players of your team, or the other team, to report "Player X" because they've done something that you think has entirely ruined the fun of the game for others.
We're here to assure you that we don't ban people for "asking for reports" in itself. However, since flaming is another bannable offense, we will ban you if we see that it's more so verbal abuse rather than a geniue request.
"Just don't be a dick about it" should be every player's baseline approach to the matter.
Subjective at best...... more miscommunication at it's finest.
You do realize that stating 'don't be a dick about it' is extremely subjective, don't you?
Not trying to be rude but, have you taken any civics courses, psychology, behavioral studies etc....? Anyone who understands the fundamentals of logic and critical thinking realize that what you're stating is relative to the perception of the individual; i.e. therefore it is subjective.
Dude, take your relativism with you somewhere else. You have common sense, right? Use it.
'Common sense' can be quite relative; what is 'common' to you may not be 'common' to me, depending on social, economic and cultural factors. Anyway, your post doesn't change the facts of what I said.
I don't think you got my point: It does not matter what you deem subjective. This is Karter's game; they set the rules. When Karter says don't be like this and that, that's exactly what it means in their terms. If you cannot, for whatever reason, fattom what they mean by "don't be like this" then that is solely your own problem. Listing every single type of behavior that falls under such a category (assuming you have no thought of your own) is extremely impractical, unless you're willing to read, I don't know, 10000000 pages of behavioral descriptions.
Scientific discourse has moved away from relativism a long time ago. Read Kant and his likes if you're interested. Relativism today is what you use when you've ran out of decent arguements. I'm pretty sure no one would have any issues understanding what is, and what is not acceptable behavior. In case that is not clear to a person for whatever reason, then said person should research, in this case, american or western behavior.
I do not need a babysit guide to understand a sign that says "do not sit here". Using your logic I could simply say "hey, sitting is subjective, my parents taught me that sitting is a term that only accounts for grown-ups, we children have another term, so that must mean I can sit here". This type of fallacy is exactly what relativism brings with itself, and this is literally the point of view that you're arguing for. Obviously this does not strike you as completely absurd, so go figure why you're still using such a train of thought. This is known as subjectivist fallacy. Feel free to google it. I'm surprised to see a person that claims to have knowledge of certain things to apply fallacy to angle an arguement towards the unreasonable.
I AM NOT SAYING THAT REPORT-CALLING ISN'T HARASSMENT, WHICH I THINK IT IS. I AM SIMPLY BAFFLED BY THE APPARENT NEED TO BRING RELATIVISM INTO THE EQUATION.
