To admins: Please feel free to pull up all private message history between myself and van and post it here.

The reason I don't have a pretty collection of hate filled ss's is because I've dealt this way with the vulgar messages for many months:

Haven't really been following this, but it seems someone has hit BS's nuclear-rampage button, and she has responded by spraying automatic weapons fire at anyone within a 3 block radius, which was also not very wise.

Without knowing the full details, I still have no doubt that this did not happen without a fair amount of duress. The exact dimensions of the straw that broke the camel's back are not very relevant. I think I know BS well enough to know that her approach to this game is to have fun and be friendly and inclusive. I have never heard her get angry about a game or insult other players as a result.

Her political/social opinions can be strong, and not to everyone's taste, most of you will be aware I myself have been involved in a few spirited discussions about these with her on this forum, but I don't think she generally goes around jamming her opinions down everyone's throat unless they have engaged with her on a given topic.

Undoubtedly her default 'go-to' demeanor is to be friendly and good-humored.

---

Van, I don't know very well, but having engaged with him a bit in the last few months this is what I have observed: Van is frequently rude and abrasive, which personally I don't like, however after first encountering this and serving him a bit of crap in return, he appears to be able to take it as well as dish it out, so some points there. I personally don't mind interacting with him in games. At least Van tends not to smurf and owns his comments, he also posts on this forum using his in-game name which many people do not. IDK the exact content/frequency of any messaging between van and BS, but I would advise him to avoid this sort of thing or he might end up having to also own the combined fall-out from his own words and those of others lacking the stones to own them.

---

Lee is possibly one of the most noxious people I have ever encountered. He is rude, petty, small minded, nasty, hateful and sneaky. He has more AKAs than just about anyone else on the server and regularly changes them multiple time a day so he can keep being an asshole without having to be accountable for his actions. If I had to guess I'd say he is just just 24/7 angry at the world for being born with a tiny little penis. Lee, I don't think that you personally being the world's biggest dick will make it grow, try a different approach....

---

Regardless of any of this, I really don't approve of anyone inflicting hateful stuff on people who are not engaging on a similar level, however if you are spewing unsolicited sexually based bile at one of our only female community members simply because you are frustrated about your iddy biddy wenis then you should be embarrassed, and the community should not put up with it.

I 100% support punitive action being taken against people pulling un-called for nasty sexist crap like that in the Pirate's Lagoon 4v4 video below.

For anybody else who really thinks they need to say something to BS or any other female, ffs be a bit smart and don't make it sexually based rubbish. Even if you don't think it makes you look pathetic for going there (which it absolutely does), in today's cyber-PC climate there's a fair chance you could actually end up getting in real trouble if, heaven forbid, someone actually did make an issue of it with the authorities. If it did end up in court, you would all get lumped in with Lee and his tiny dick and some female judge would throw the book at you. I would hate to see that happen, so remember there are now actual specific laws which make this stuff definitely illegal in the US and elsewhere.

This just reminded me of TheJoker saying he had to block you for stalking his gf or something on facebook :D

For the record, she had it coming for wearing that dress on her profile.


For the record, even assuming this is supposed to be a joke, it still needs a big #CreepyMuch

...although I do understand how you might find this confusing as I'm sure no woman who doesn't charge by the hour has ever put on a nice dress to look good for you.

RE: Persistent squelching.

An instant if somewhat inelegant fix would be (as others have mentioned) to use some sort of macro to re-type the /squelch stuff. I'd suggest something like AHK for this. But a macro to squelch every one of Lee's AKAs every game is going to be a bit intrusive, and also forces anyone using it to look at all his names being squelched every game, and for me that would just make me want to log off or punch the screen.

The idea of an exe mod that would filter out chat from specific players is possible. I located the proc that displays in game messages a while back so this could be rewritten to accomplish this. I haven't really investigated further to determine if it is the same proc that displays /m or /w messages - possibly but if not that one would also have to be located and modded - the same again for channel message display.

I haven't had time to work on WC2 stuff lately - I'm half way through a hosting fix that I think should work but haven't even looked at it in weeks. Certainly I don't have an instant off-the-shelf squelch fix that I can just implement overnight but I can see this being worth including in the next major CE update, so maybe then.

There would be no more room in jail if every guy went for saying something sexual to a woman, like "I wold love to plow you". "Down to fuck?". "Can you Cleveland steamer you?". Not illegal to proposition a woman for a Cincinatti Surprise, unless its for money,

How about this for a solution, I wouldn't normally say it but this has become a big enough fiasco that it's getting out of hand, and this seems like an easy enough solution:

van and leeroy don't whisper Babyshark ever again.  There's no reason they need to do that to hang out on the server and they can still flame other people or talk shit in chat

Babyshark doesn't whisper them ever and doesn't contact them on facebook and definitely doesn't contact their family members.

Would that be too hard for anyone?

LOL blid... How are you old friend? If you send you a computer will you come back to war2?

It's impossible, they are just living out their childhood in adult life so that when someone tells them not to do something they will just do it anyway.

To be fair, I've seen enough creepy and weird behavior over the years that I wouldn't be surprised if female players are disproportionately harassed on the server at a greater level due entirely to their gender. That tends to happen in gaming and online communities generally, and War2 attracts people from both of those audiences.

Historically, I have been in the camp that it's best to just let vulgar/harassing/etc behavior go, because the alternative--to attempt to police that behavior--potentially sends us down a path where some admin might one day try to enforce their censorship views in ways that crosses lines way beyond just restriction of the most egregious behavior.

However lately, I've found myself wondering if maybe it's time to change a bit. War2 is now a game played primarily by adults, many of who are in their 30s and 40s and are (or at least should be) perfectly capable of managing their behavior responsibly. Society is also changing, with tolerance for this sort of behavior at an all time low, and while i personally think it's not right, there are certainly those that support not just holding people accountable for what they say, but also people who "could" or "should" have done something about it. All it takes is for someone to come along who cares more about taking a stand than the community and the game, and there's a potential for a lot of collateral damage even for those that have never uttered a single aggressive/negative thing.

We've taken strong positions on overt racism, at least on the forum, before. Perhaps it's time to take a closer look at that boundary, along with some other commonly excepted societal boundaries, like sexism, and establish some bare minimum expectations of decorum, with defined penalties, similar to our policies on hacking. It's understood that enforcement will be difficult since people can just create another account through a VPN, but that could all be spelled out in whatever artifact describes the expectations.

Ultimately it's basically impossible to stop someone from logging in to an open server and harassing a particular player if they really want to, but we could, at the very least, establish that the vast majority of the community and the admins do not condone it and will at least create a little bit of a barrier to the most egregious of behaviors.
