Kuma’s Thought: Ignorance is Not Bliss, Just Makes You A Jacka**

Kuma Wrote: There is something to be said about people that get up in the morning, thinking about what game they want to play and decided to be the biggest a**hole in the face of all internet gaming. I mean some of us have egos and many of us know when to turn it off to just walk away and say “Good Game”. Honestly I am that type of gamer that will talk a bit of smack when given, but give props to the other team if I win or lose no matter I had fun and that is the whole point that many forget. The main question that some of us are left with is, “Why?” I mean are they picked on by someone in the real world and get online to pretend like they are the center of the universe? If so there are many single player games out there that can offer that feeling of getting everyone’s attention to come after you. I want to be clear on this post without the confusion to some thinking I am attacking those few that want to belittle or bully others online with racist or sexist comments. I am here to try and save those few from others that might take it a bit further. I mean people in this world are crazy and willing to track you down, read about it all the time and you might piss off the wrong person. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Culture, PS3)

The main culprit for online douchery is anonymity. You have the comfort of knowing you are separated by connection, and the freedom that offers to some people is just too intoxicating to resist. This I would have to call 'internet rage' because just like road rage, those people feel protected in their little metallic bubbles and convince themselves that 'if it hadn't been for the traffic, I'd have jumped out of my car and...' They live in this comforting fantasy because largely speaking they have no control over reality.

You can tell which are weaker than others by the speed they move from patronage to personal attacks. They don't realise that they have just lost when they do that, they feel empowered... they feel like that guy they secretly admired at school that could defend himself. They feel the pain of being bullied but can't resist the temptation to bully themselves. These are the dregs, the low lives, the people I have no respect for at all. If cowardice is the only thing that prevents you becoming a bully then you deserve to be bullied. It should be a matter of principle.

@Gribber and @Kuma

Thank you both because I have been trying to inform gamers for 2 years now but I think I've finally come to the conclusion that they would rather be ignorant sheep than actually know what they talk about.

This was why I created a site to help inform those who want to actually know the truth about games.

Gandhi changed himself, and through his actions caused others to want to change themselves.

I just want to show a more lighter side to gamers instead of these tools that keep giving us a bad name.

If you have to answer for your actions then most people wouldn't talk crap online.

Much less crap was talked, or it was at a more reserved level when somebody was in the room with you, because if you made them made enough they were right there to literally smash/punch you.

If every stupid kid/person who talked crap or purposely killed his own team, had to get punched in the face one time for every time they did it, NOBODY would talk crap.

But violence is never the way. So there must be another way to educate these ignorant problem causers.

I some what agree because one I used to be a bouncer so it was my profession to use intimidation, but I have grown older and I rather educate these kids to keep cool, because there is trash talk and than there is what happened in that video. Other people are not going to be as cool or relaxed with your ignorance so don't think anyone is safe just because they are tough behind the internet. I would rather none of that happen because it has happened many times.
