    If you can't flame on your own without dragging wholly unrelated RL into it, how good of a flamer are you? Really?
    She made her RL relevant. No one gave a shit but she insisted on using them so, they got used.

    LFG's first law of the Internet:

    It is the natural course of human conduct for people to use the deadliest weapon available to effect the greatest harm on an opponent.

    Before arguing with anyone on the Interent or ever using a site like this, you should first understand where you are vulnerable with respect to unflattering real life information posted about you, or that you yourself have posted, elsewhere on the Internet. Because if there is ANY, someone will eventually find it and use it against you.

    Before ever arguing on the Internet, everyone needs to first accept that there are no rules on the Internet and that many people will have no problem picking up a bigger stick and extending the dispute from the Internet to real life.

    Unless you can accept your personal life being brought into an Internet dispute, and do like Gaige does and say "so what" whenever he is attacked about his personal life, you've lost the war before you've started the battle, because you've supplied your opponents with all the ammunition they need to harm you in the worst ways possible.

    Understood but still, what was the argument about?Was the person just being petty or was it really just that hot?

    I think admins should be allowed to delete RL pics of peoples kids and family... And it shoudl be on a case by case basis.

    If some person is posting saying that their kid is the most amazing kid ever... or says that their kid wins beauty pagents, or is blatantly bragging about their kid in a way that invites ridicule.. then I'd say it's fair game.
    But I am not a fan of attacking other people's family. Yes I am a parent also, and perhaps this is why. I just feel it's lame.

    There is a huge and massive distinction.

    I could be exposed to civil or even criminal liability if one user of this site went out and shot or beat up another after posting an express or implied threat on this site that they planned to do that. I could be accused of enabling or conspiring to allow that to happen as the curator of this site.

    I cannot be held liable under any theory of civil or criminal law if someone posts their family pics and other personal information elsewhere on the Internet and someone else reposts those pictures and information here.

    The site rules were set up to allow the maximum possible free speech while creating the minimum possible risk of me personally being exposed to civil or criminal responsibility for what goes on here.

    Now you know.

    Never said it was. I just want to know what it was about. Is it like Mysidia or countless other RL shit talking or was it discussing crit mechanics and the guy just used a RL fuck you.

    It started like this:

    We were all assembling to kill the Dain in Thurgadin. Our rival guild showed up and we started racing to the encounter. Someone called a GM to settle the dispute. The GM forced a coin toss. My guild lost the coin toss.

    In retaliation, we started the 10th Ring war outside, which caused all the mobs, including the Dain, to despawn inside when we (ooops) lost the Ring War.

    This started the largest and most extensive flameboard war that I've ever seen, and it extended into real life for a lot of people, including me.

    Despite all the shit that went down, I still laugh and think "owned" everytime I remember how mad those guys were when their encounter despawned after an hour worth of clearing and a half hour fight when their named mob was at 10%.

    photo was lulzy. i don´t see the big deal. it´s a cheap attempt to make someone mad ( posting rl photos )
    but in the end - no one really cares about other peoples rl. i don´t think anyone will ever go
    up to that kid ( in ap posted picture ) saying : well you did that bitch good bro! so there is no reason to change anything.
