All form for bullying and harassment online need to be dealt with. There is to much crap online and it's just growing.

I do not like sensor and I am for free speech but there has to be a line you don't cross.

A simple but true fact. It's beyond out of control and something needs to be done.

Agreed. I hate whenever I see any kind of abuse in the gaming medium; i just don't understand what drives people who act like such.

It sucks that it has taken them being harassed to truly understand what gamers that play their games experience. It should be no surprise to them with the reputation their games carry.

I think the upcoming Xbox Live's reputation system will help the cause and I believe Playstation and Nintendo should do the same thing. What do you think will help?
