    Default errror / rorrre, Mynydd, Fyodr - splitpaw server

    let's get this bit out of the way.. say hello to the LA team in the Lingerie football league



    Now then, down to business.

    So, this Rorrre links a L80 unique item in auction channel, which to be fair is still pretty useful as it has an immunity proc on heal cast (ring of emptiness). Then a second link pops from Mynydd for a treasured L80 item and some trolling pops off between the two of them. This is fairly typical of Errror really, trolling and put downs are his forte, and is seen regularly on the server channels, so no real need to notice at this point. A few minutes into it, more get involved with linking pointless items into auction channel. Anyhow, screenshots below. (also, I can't get the screenshots to be at the right size for all to see, if someone could edit the post to make that happen, it would be appreciated)

    so yeah, i got caught out by the trolling. but it's the next section that really offends me as you see by my comments
    errror1.jpg

    So, to clarify - comments about the special Olympics and disabled people, when asked to stop, more joined in and defended the original comment. All is here to see, make up your own minds as to whether these three deserve to be on Rate-a-Retard (and yeah, I see the irony of that statement).

    Oh this thread will not end well for you.


    I find it funny that in the first picture, you are giving someone else a hard time about something that they find offensive, yet in the second picture you are complaining about what YOU find offensive.

    Monkrat is so rude, and Errrorr is a special enabled detard for not giving me that item before I moved.

    On a slightly more serious note, I can sympathize with people taking offense at certain jokes. What I have, however, never found effective is just saying "I find that very offensive and you should stop it", in public and right after an "incorrect" joke. I mean, how could you even imagine that would end well?

    It just makes you appear overly sensitive to most people. They will see you as taking a harmless joke way too seriously (note that I'm not debating here whether the joke is entirely harmless or not, just how it will appear), and this will actually undermine your cause. This is partly because a lot of people — even people who might in a different situation strongly support the rights of the said group — will have laughed, or at least not have taken it very seriously. By saying that the joke was improper, those people will feel like you're attacking them and not just the joker. They will immediately turn their defenses on, and the typical reaction is to say it was just a joke.

    Another thing is that if you're focusing a lot on what is arguably one of the least harmful forms of discrimination, it is easy for people to start thinking that maybe any of the other problems those people face in their everyday lives are not all that serious after all. And really, the chances are, just coldly looking at inputs and outputs, trying to remove incorrect jokes from this world is not a very effective use of anyone's time.

    Just ignore such jokes — or troll them back if you like. If you really really think educating people about why even harmless-seeming jokes might hurt other people is worthwhile, you need a different context. One where people are more receptive and where they're not on the defensive, and you also need to appeal to their empathy in a fashion that does not appear overly sensitive.

    Amazed that someone with such a moronic UI setup actually dares to post a screenie
