Pamela Horton: "I Got Treated Like Crap Playing FPSs Online"

Playboy's Miss October has been playing games for a long time, and her entertainment used to involved playing FPSs online. But the idiots made her stop. (Culture)

Sadly there is really no way to stop this bad behavior online. Online gaming networks will continue to be a terrible source of sexism, racism, and people acting their downright worse.

But of course pushing people away from the gaming industry isn't a bad thing right guys? Coz it's just SO difficult to share our favorite hobby with others and not be complete *** holes to them?

I agree there is no realy way to report these people. The banning people doesn't do much i they can just make another account. This is something I hope the next generation of consoles sort. I usually mute everyone online because who wants to here racial/sexist/general bad talk (as well as people balring out music which tends not to sound great through the mic which is more inconsiderate but not a huge deal)

I'll never understand how someone giving you crap would make you stop playing. There's always the option to mute and block someone. People give each other crap online all the time, male and female, just play the game and get over it.

Then she is obviously to stupid to use the

1. Mute
2. Block
3 report

functions.

While true at the same time when such becomes a standard requirement to your game sessions does the game itself continue to be fun? Does it not just take away from the reason to play a game.
AO1JMM  +   923d ago
It isn't that bad at least not in my experience. You will never (unless you only play with friends at home) play a game with 100% mature gamers. All she has to do is at least block the people that annoy her and if they are truly offensive then report them and block them as well.

Idiots didn't make her stop. She punked out.

As if men don't face trolling, harasment and other nonsense when they game online....

It's like she's implying she deserves special treatment just because she's a woman.
