    We need to draw a line



    This guy was on a roll, flooding pub chat with trashtalk. Really bad trashtalk. Trashtalk that deserves to get him temp banned imo. However, actively encouraging people to commit suicide is where he crossed a line.

    Pub is very inactive at certain times a day, I understand. But the lack of moderators and enforcement of even a bare minimum of rules, not only hurts this game (most people don't like having linguistic buckets of shit poured over them), it also fails to provide a safe environment. What if a kid fires up this game and that Bukakke guy tells him to google it, when the kid asks him what his nick means? (Which I believe I've seen him do btw). Should that account even be allowed?

    I'm not a fan overly censoring which tends to happen on commercial, mainstream platforms (be it gaming, media, whatever), but we need to draw a line somewhere, no? Pub is where most people start and hang out. I'd rather not have it turn into a shit hole filled with racism, hatred, holocaust denial, team killing and more of that 'good' stuff.

    Ps. I set these images to expire in a month, 'cause I'm actually violating the image hosting service's terms by uploading them.

    Agree.

    I'd add that there's a handful of players who MUST be ignored to have any sort of sanity in pub spec chat. Putting them in the default Steam ignore.txt would improve the game. But really, these players should be banned. Everything they say is pure aids.

    I've given this fella a 24 hour silence - that is - 24 hours of active time in game. While I do feel that this idiot is obviously a complete cancer, I must tell you that he has absolutely zero prior warnings or BanCs. I am going to try to speak with him when I see him online and hopefully avoid this in the future. Certainly, the good of the game outweighs this fellas right to puke his insecurities out into pub and alienate players. That being said, as much as based on the above pictures, I'd like to ban him for a year, we have to weigh the punishment for the crime and a player's history.

    In terms of moderation, we have a shortage of manpower for sure. Staff members are not robots and have lives themselves. We don't just give out moderator powers to anyone, or it would be chaos. We typically can't keep up with attrition due to inactivity at this point. More volunteers and staff applications are always welcome.

    I will also add - I don't want to go into tremendous detail - but we have recently (within the last couple months) added a section to the ban manual that specifically deals with disruptive players.

    Because moderators are mandated to follow the ban manual, but in full realization that I can't be online 24/7 to deal with cancerous players who are actively disrupting gameplay or staff operations, moderators may now take more severe action without Ban Op authority if a player is designated as having recurring disruptive issues.

    Nothing is perfect, and lord knows nothing will stop the mentally ill that we attract from making problems, but just know that we are trying, and we do realize that this has become more of an obvious issue as general population has declined (but troll population increases).

    I'm glad to hear voth did something. Why is staff being so selective about abuse and when to enforce this type behavior though?? I've dealt with these type insults on a regular basis for months making staff help calls only to be flat out ignored or told to ?ignore the abuser. I was even told to do an ?ignore on this ridiculousness below and staff refused to warn this player. Unacceptable!! This was one page of like 10 pages of spam done to me.. why was this player not warned??
