well, sure... but someone's got to feed the trolls- poor buggers; it's lonely and dank under those bridges.

""Furthermore, few people online understand how to disagree without being disagreeable. Online interaction is so impersonal, so fraught with assurances of anonymity, and so littered with the maladjusted and juvenile, that there are no social repercussions for acting like a *******.""

There aren't? Try again, bud... See how RBJ got smacked down in the infamous "this is not true wide-screen"-thread hijack.
I got my balls busted once in the Pilot's Lounge, for spouting crap when I should have just STFU'ed, which in retrospect is fine by me; I actually learned from the experience...

I'd say there are indeed "social repercussions" in these forums.

edit:
and I quote:
"If someone from the developer or publisher is on a game forum, mixing it up with you, it's not because you'll decide the success of future titles. They aren't sucking up to you to ensure their game does well. They're there because they have the decency to honor your eagerness for attention and interaction. The least you can do is drop your self-important sense of entitlement and conduct yourself with a modicum of courtesy."

Hmmm I belive your perspective on "social reprecussions" may be a bit skewed. This in itself is a disturbing aspect.

As an example when is the last time a forum slapped a pair of handcuffs on you and dragged you off to jail.

If you get your feelings hurt or someone upsets you or disagrees with you ... oh well... turn the damn thing off.

Good god its just a game !

The author chose this way of making this public, so he couldn't be flamed, locked or deleted.

Infact he's got a great success with this article, cause he'll get a LOT of hits. Pitty, that flaming people and blaming being superficial in saying all fans are superficial whiners, get so much attention /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

(Besides that, as it was allready stated in the LOMAC-forums: The few facts he named were not true. FooT, for example never appeared in the forum as a fan, but insulted AndyHollis from his first post on, etc)
