Sessler's Soapbox: Stop Being a Dick!

"Bullying is something we've all had to deal with in one way or another. Most of us have memories of being picked on, stuffed in lockers, or beat up during our younger years. But sometimes things go too far, and the results can be catastrophic. There have been a lot of stories in the news recently about incidents at schools that have ended in violence and sometimes suicide, and that's what was on Adam's mind when he decided to shoot this week's Soapbox."

Good video. Good to see Adam talking about this. With online gaming becoming more and more popular, Facebook becoming a part of our daily lives and internet anonymity, people are saying to themselves: "Why am I a dick to people over the internet? Because I can." I, for one, don't see the appeal to bullying in an online game, it just makes you come off as an a-hole. You're ruining the game for others, good job.

this is why i only play online (if i ever) with friends & family. i don't have the time or patience to deal with idiots when i just want to play for the enjoyment of it.

being face to face or even writing on theres a reason why people act like a-holes

because they can. they are "free" and hidden behind a screen. most people will just do so even if in real life they are great and nice and all

I think a lot of people on XBL don't realize how their words actually effect people.

Yeah I have asked people why they feel the need to use slurs and swears when they play and they say its all in good fun. Maybe its fun for their immature mind but for me, its just annoying. Every time I go into COD, I have to mute every single person who I dont know. It used to be that this problem was only on XBL but now that may 360 users got RROD and switched to PS3, PSN is now just as rampant with swearing as Live is. Its enough to make me want to quit online gaming sometimes. Gamers used to be pretty separated back in the 90s. I remember having a hard time finding people to trade pokemon with on my gameboy because gaming wasnt that mainstream. But now that we have good internet and gamers can get in contact with other gamers, we really dont treat each other well at all.
