Has anyone come into contact with this guy? He seems to think rape is funny. I have no idea why he brought the subject of rape into the argument we were having. But then he continues to casually throw it about and saying my gf deserved it.
Im not quite sure I want to play on here anymore if people are going to be like this. I know its only a game but you have to draw the line somewhere. I didnt pay membership to this site to put up with this crap.
and again yet another case of petty people taking offence to petty things... what makes this worse is that if you cant muster enough self control to ignore something as silly as this their is a wonderful blacklist option just for people like you. So now you have 2 additional options other than quitting a game just because someone used rape to convey they're twisted sense of humor.
If you think rape is petty then you must be in the same boat as ramo5. I really cant work out if you are having at dig at me or what. This guy sat behind his computer and goaded me about rape once he knew he had hit a raw nerve.
You think how long someone would last long in a crowd of people joking about rape? Its not a funny subject at all. Why would I want to hang around people like that and even play a game with them? Hes no better than rapists. He may have deluded himself to higher levels laughing at his own twisted humor but he is in fact on the same level as them. As I said Im considering whether to play on here anymore if people are going to act like scum. Kids play on here and I don't think they need to be taught that rape is funny. I didn't pay money for kids to be taught rap is funny either.
The sad thing is he will just join with another account as he said with no remorse for his actions. On that note I think I will be ending my time on warlight unless fizzer can assure me people like this will be banned and remained banned. There are plenty of options. I paid membership to support the site, not comedy about rape. 30 dollars for 16 days. not bad.
You seem to miss the point. I am paying for this behavior to continue and kids play this site. So lets just ignore it as a community, thats the responsible thing to do. I am no saint myself but I said before I have to draw the line on certain things. Its easy for you to say that because you have not financed it. Im sorry for having some sort of morals and a conscience. Maybe this really isn't the place for me.
Facebook or google sign ins linked to accounts. More Moderators to deal more swiftly with these problems. If we leave this fester it will only get worse. You either up your game or someone else will take your place. Warlight isn't hard to copy and there are other board emulators out there already, open source and not flash based. What stands it out from the them is the community. If we dont pull the weeds its just grow into something out of our control. You are basically just deflecting the problem and saying its impossible to defeat. Nice attitude but thanks for your input.
That assumes all accounts link to facebook. They currently do not have to and nor should that be a requirement. Besides, FB is a free account so fake ones can easily be generated.
You say it will fester and grow worse and yet this site has existed for a number of years with minimal issue. Why would it now suddenly grow?
I am sorry if you see realism as deflection. I like to deal with the tangible and the possible, not the abstract and unrealistic demands. A good rule in life is that instead of simply demanding change, you sit down and think about how to make that change a reality. Any fool can make demands. Only the useful can develop the means to implement such a demand.
"If you think rape is petty then you must be in the same boat as ramo5. I really cant work out if you are having at dig at me or what. This guy sat behind his computer and goaded me about rape once he knew he had hit a raw nerve."
I never said rape was funny although their are a few comedians out their who have taken a crack at it and are successful. now about him sitting behind a computer that is exactly what happened he sat behind a computer and goaded you because you were to easy, its not as if you or anyone else was in real danger of losing their cherry. fact is trolls take advantage of people like you because its entertaining, very much the same concept as watching a cat chase a laser light. making this public is just feeding them and everyone says you shouldnt feed the trolls.

we'll first sentence, Its been done as i said by comedians and they made money from it so not so bad actually. as for why you would want to hang around people who would joke about rape that is entirely your choice as everyone has a choice and in america the freedom of speech. jokes put you nowhere near as the same level as to what they're joking about, in that train of thought everyone who has ever told a black joke is a slave owner or that everyone who has told a religious joke is an atheist. and that is just soo false i cant even began to scratch the surface of a description.
so far you have pointed out only 1 person who has so offended you with a joke about rape so its person not people but even so if that is enough to keep you from playing a game, that is also your choice i might as well point out the ever so useful blacklist option though instead of requesting a ban, just because something that offends you does not mean it will offend someone else. and as for the last sentence that is just censorship which i very much disapprove of so i will skip that subject (to save my fingers) and just say you should probably worry about your own kids its not your right or business to raise others peoples children if you believe your kids cannot handle a troll block them from using Warlight with parental block software while your at it you should probably and to your list of blocked websites, yahoo, facebook, just about any MMO game, MSN, Google and any place with a chat room really. Oh and Real life.

While i don't approve of trolls i don't think he has much of a reason to show remorse in america now a days you cannot shake a stick without offending someone, if one were to have remorse every-time he or she offended someone they'd be a very sad individual. probably contemplating suicide.
But on a happier note i would like to say good bye and i hope that you had a fun time on war light and thank you for buying a membership and supporting a site that i really like, I wish you the best of luck should you choose to leave.
That's when the moderators come in. You obviously missed the moderating bit. Moderating is a skill and over time will have a keen eye for the tell tale signs of new accounts that don't add up. FB fake accounts are easy to spot unless they want to go the whole hog and waste time that's their prerogative. I'm well aware you cant stamp these problems out but you sure can keep it under control and make it harder for these people. My point is there was nobody to stop this guy going on and on. He should have been booted straight away and banned. I made my stand to make a point.
And if you hadn't noticed the site has grown a lot now so much that the servers are strained. Lets conclude that they are many more people using the site now. You can refer the new clans post. So the minimal issues will start to happen a lot more and if the kids start copying it who knows. So continue with your "intellectual" rant trying to pull down my ideas. You sir are a negative person. Your stand is pathetic and counterproductive. I think they call it "trolling".
Plus pay for membership if you been playing for years.
Do you guys want to clean up the "community". Go look up community.
@aggressive I'm pretty convinced you should never bring up kids until you mature a little more. We should be alienating this sort of behavior not condoning under free speech. Comedians joke about it in non personal fantastical way, not in a personal attack. You really think comedians stand up and ask who got raped in here and then launch into rape jokes. I guess he has the right to verbally attack me in any way and I have no right to defend myself in your eyes. Free speech and all. I will not turn a blind eye to it. You like to twist things to keep existing in the name of free speech good on you and power to your higher standing morals. You just slipped down the ladder in my eyes.
You actually made out you have been here years and seen minimal problems. So that statement was in fact untrue. So you are now basing your argument on assumptions?
Well these small minded people hide behind email accounts that are highly anonymous. The guys email is obviously not his primary but one made up. It starts with qwer... so straight away hes knows he can get away with his behavior without it being linked to his real life. Its only invasive if you got something to hide. Man if you are that worried why are you even on the net? They can invade your life a hell a lot of other ways. Your ISP could tell you more about yourself than facebook could. They only indirectly make money out of you and your habits. Its free and wouldnt continue to be popular if it was corrupt as you make it out to be. Whatever you put on the net is no secret anymore. Just look at anonymous and lulz as examples.
Anyways I kinda figured this thread is falling upon deaf ears mostly. Thanks for the first few helpful posts.
Anyways I just got some good advice and Im going to stick to the members side from now on. Obviously minus one of them now. Its got more genuine warlight people there. As he said they actually care about the well being of the site. See you on the other side if any of you ever bother to pay your way.
