In real life, these people would get their ass kicked for whining like they do online. Here, there is some degree of anonymity which makes it easier to be a sore loser and not face the typical consequences (e.g., aforementioned ass kicking, revocation of man card, unsolicited gift of tampons from friends).
Same type of reaction outside of the interwebs, deep down, but fewer dare to let it show in the real world.
shit..used to play mech warrior online and get death threats for kickin' dudes asses........GLB butthurt AND nuthuggin' are mild ........was better in early seasons when you could respect another team for figuring out how to stomp you...course frogs only show respect win or loose!
Originally posted by Mat McBriar I'd agree with that. Probably due to a slightly higher average user age. There's a good older population here and while some still act their shoe size, I like to think we have a good community.
