What I hate the most is the younger crowd assuming just because they don't know someone on the other end they can mouth off, especially if their parents aren't around. When I was younger I'd mouth back and maybe even get into some type of verbal war; now that I'm older I'll mute and/or report if the harassment continues. When I played FF11 the hardcores would go to a couple of websites to post their business (or vent/brag about picking on someone) however over time people ignored them and eventually the behavior died off.

I agree with the author though, and I'd welcome more articles like this to remind people to be courteous, respectful, and play to have fun.

I'm glad you agree with what I wrote in the article. People just need to sit back and remember that it's a game, no need for name calling and all that other jazz. And yes, the younger players are the worst, though I have come by some "adults" that are just as bad. It's really pathetic how some people act while playing online.
