Reality Check - **UPDATED** with Mike Ontry's New Message Blocker!!!!!

Tag 1,868, 20:33 von Bia Pandora

Hi there.

I'm going to avoid all the fluff because I know 97% of you can care less about having a link to a tune to set the mood, nor would you click it. I know that 50% of you are viewing this hoping you have find a good pic to fap to for 1.7 minutes.

Well, you aren't getting either.



Why Bia, why you hurt me so? Why you so meanz to mehhhhhh?

Because I have absolutely no interest in trying to sell you anything. I don't want to be PotUS. I don't want to be in the cabinet servicing the PotUS. I don't care if Team KneePad thinks I'm "cool". What I do care about is being blunt.

So...there will be no frilly knickers, or lack thereof...there will be no fancy fluff to distract you...there will be no crap...there will be no big words and foreign concepts intending to make me look smarter than any of you. What there will be is some eye-opening reality checks. I apologize in advance if it twists anyone's panties, but hey...truth hurts sometimes and I'm pissed.



I'm going to start out with what pissed me off today. Let me preface by saying that this is not a personal attack on one person, but rather an example of the type of crap a normal, unassuming gamer who will not do "anything" for a position of power, has to deal with when logging on.

Sadly, if he was our only problem it wouldn't be a problem, but our entire game culture has degraded and people that just don't care and act like this, or similar, are everywhere now, in every group and country and we are allowing it.



It's no secret at this point that I've been stalked in game by Ajay Bruno/Pizza the Hut/General Cartman Lee/Ronald Gipper Reagan for ohhh...over a year now. I wrote about it after getting so sick of it that I couldn't take it anymore here:

http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/will-the-etruth-set-me-free-edited-article-a-warning-for-all-players--2046416/1/20

Well shortly after that time a friend spoke to him about leaving me alone. And for the most part the messages, etc. finally stopped. Until yesterday. I log on to this:

http://tinyurl.com/a7znexr

So..I go and ask my friend WTF is this nutbag talking about? It turns out said friend made the mistake of telling Ajay/RGR that he was going to vote for a different candidate. So, just like Ajay/RGR he immediately freaks out...and threatens to resume his harassment of me since this guy is obviously "not his friend" because he is voting for someone else.

Of note: I don't even support the candidate this friend is voting for. But this is how twisited Ajay/RGR is, his solution to not getting a vote is to threaten someone else.

Here are the tinyurl's to the convo, names of this "friend" and his friends have been whited out for their own safety:

This is a game that only works successfully with teamwork. In order to have teamwork there needs to be a basic foundation of respect. In order to have respect there needs to be a foundation of trust. In order to have trust...there needs to be a foundation of honesty. In order to have honesty...there needs to be some semblance of integrity. All of these things combine to create a strong team. Without one...the team weakens.

We can't function as a team because we have let our foundations rot. We are all to blame.

In what realm of ANY reality is it alright for people to want so desperately to have a title in a browser game that it becomes OK to treat people like cattle and dogs?????

MY safe and happy personal gaming time is something to be bargained about for a damn CP vote in a browser game?

That isn't all. How many people try to stand up for honesty and truth and get beat down, called names and tormented until they quit, just so the people "running" for this imaginary title can win for 30 days, only be wind up being massive blips on the calendar that do absolutely nothing but perpetuate the same crap that we have allowed ourselves to become?

What kind of people have real lives so small that they find treating other people so badly just for a browser game title justified?

What kind of people are we allowing to form the foundations of our eSociety?



I'm tired of being called crazy and paranoid by people whose only goal is browser game power.

I'm tired of being stalked and harassed by real life sociopaths.

I'm tired of the lies, the deceit and shady back room dealings.

I'm tired of obvious people who don't give a damn about this country past taking it over stating that they are more "American" than I am, while they lay down damage daily for our enemies.

I'm tired of being a victim for "gamers" who have no problem allowing real life danger into the lives of other players because they cannot comprehend that there are real people on the other side of the monitor.

I'm tired of older accounts suddenly becoming alive, and those players being so hell bent on finally obtaining the PotUS title that they didn't achieve before they QUIT the first time, that they will lie, cheat and steal their way into this imaginary power.

I'm tired of people whose real lives are so terrible that they will actually revive dead accounts and spend time pretending to be those players...just to gain some browser game power and title.

I'm tired of having to question old friends that suddenly return to make sure it's really them because some punk lame kids have to ruin even that in a stupid browser game.

I'm tired of us all laying around like cows stupidly chewing our rotting grass until some kids decide we will be useful to get them some votes.

I'm tired of people being told that their voice doesn't matter, because no matter how much time you dedicate to this GAME, or what your position is, YOU MATTER.

I'm tired of being told how we should "unify" by candidates that tell us how much we all suck when they aren't running for PotUS.

I'm tired of people using our pain as bargaining chips to get them votes, then going right back to the bullcrap they did before right after the election.

I'm tired of hearing about "unity" from people that think only THEY and theirs have the solutions.

I'm tired of being forced to back "unity" candidates that got there through loopholes and cheating the system, that no one really wants there.

I'm tired of being harassed.



Here are some truths that I hope you all consider, ESPECIALLY new players:

1. Don't trust what I say, she says, he says or what they say. People have agendas and sometimes the nicest seeming people are the biggest sharks. LOOK FOR YOURSELF. Everything that you need to know is out there. Use your OWN judgement.

2. The people cast as wearing the tinfoil hats, or as "crazy" or "paranoid" are usually the people asking you to find out for yourself. Who are they? Use your OWN judgement.

3. Read everything, including past articles by people. The smart dirty players typically go back and delete articles when they campaign. If they haven't...read them thoroughly. Do their views when they weren't running match what this current campaign article is saying?

4. Watch how people treat others, outside of election time and during election times. Watch how they talk to people in game, in comments and on IRC. Does the way they treat people compare to their campaign articles?

5. What kind of people support this person? Investigate them.

6. Take NO ONE at face value.Think, and research for yourself.

7. The key to winning this game is "retention", which means making sure as many players as possible keep playing. Is the candidate willing to see the value in all loyal groups, or do they think all other groups are wrong and only theirs is right?

8. Is the person trying to sway your opinion up for any positions? I've seen players sell out longstanding "friends" for a stupid title in this game. What do they get out of it if they get what they want?

9. And most important for me....what kind of a game do you want to log into? Do you want it to be a place that causes you to log off in disgust, constantly teetering on the edge of quitting, or do you want to log in and have some fun again and not feel dirty? Our leaders set the example. What kind of an example would each set?

10. Quantity does NOT always equal quality. Having the most members in a party or MU doesn't make them best, it means there could be many dead bodies or multies in the group. How much damage is being done per person in your MU? Having alot of votes on an article means nothing, except someone paid alot of currency to buy votes. Look for activity, look for comments, look at how that group is perceived by the general populace. Propaganda is easy, don't fall for it. Do your research. Beware of tricks like this, meant to confuse people "just running through" into thinking the biggest is the best choice.

You know during CP elections when it says "supported by" and it lists a bunch of parties? Don't be confused because someone seems to have alot of support. CLICK on the parties and see if they are even real, and WHO is in them. PTO groups take over small parties so they can put a large number of "supporters" up, make sure these "supporters" are real and AMERICAN citizens who don't fight for enemies.



It's either time we do something, no matter how insignificant we might be to some, and start reversing our current culture of "he/she who is the biggest dirtbag wins", or we are done. People will keep leaving.

It's as simple as that. Don't support dirtbags or people that treat others like crap. If you see they lie, know they've cheated, hurt others, are so crazed about getting that CP seat that they'll sell out their friends, groups, country and mother...they are not right for what we need right now. There are a ton of players that would love the opportunity to lead us that care about what is right and good. We DON'T need to be cheaters to win.

We don't have to get along, but we should be able to respect each other enough to work as a team and we should have leaders that actually try to lead us with grace and integrity, and if they can't even carry themselves with any while not campaigning...they won't do it if they win.



IT IS NOT OK TO BE A DIRTBAG AND I AM TIRED OF BEING PRESSURED INTO BEING ONE. Or being asked to cover for players that are because ZOMG they just HAVE TO HAVE POWAH!!!!!

Educate yourself, look around, listen and learn. The truth IS right out there for everyone. See for yourself.

Vote for a better game environment, the rest will follow. It's important, and it's something we ALL can do.



I am not sure it is not already too late. I wish I could say I have more faith than I have left, but I really don't. I just know I hate the way things have been this past year, and I know that many of you that I speak to do as well.

I don't know what else to do anymore but ask you all to stand on your own feet and look around. What I've always asked. IF there are enough good players left, and I am honestly doubting that now, it might be possible to turn this around.

I hope so. I really adore so many of you. But I cannot stand idle and continue to watch this all degrade to the point where people will do anything for a stupid vote, including putting people in danger in real life, or supporting people that would. Will you?

I just can't keep logging into a cesspool. I don't want to and I won't much longer. It keeps getting worse. This is insanity. This isn't gaming. Are there even enough decent gamers left to make a change? Are you out there????

Seriously, tell me that there is still some resistance to plain bad, idiotic behavior...no matter what group they are in. If we aren't going to take responsibility for the behavior of ourselves and the people in our own houses, who is? Being in the same group with someone doesn't mean we should ignore it if they are doing wrong.

Hugs, friends.

I wish you all the very best and happiest New Year < 3

Excellent read. I can say out of the thousands (and yes I read a lot of articles in between my two-clicking) I haven't felt as impressed as I have with this one.

Shame others can't grasp the concept of this being just a game. Games are meant to be enjoyed, sadly this like any other form of social interaction is ruined by a few idiots.

This is a very very good article so much truth in it

I am actually guilty of
"3. Read everything, including past articles by people. The smart dirty players typically go back and delete articles when they campaign. If they haven't...read them thoroughly. Do their views when they weren't running match what this current campaign article is saying?"
I did delete some of my articles when I went into the AFA to try and take over them.


After I get out I try to be honest and like you said "That isn't all. How many people try to stand up for honesty and truth and get beat down, called names and tormented until they quit, just so the people "running" for this imaginary title can win for 30 days, only be wind up being massive blips on the calendar that do absolutely nothing but perpetuate the same crap that we have allowed ourselves to become?"

And Bia, I agree with Gnilraps. You need a break from erep and its shit. Play some other game, if nothing else, instead of eRepublik. I don't know you very well but you appear a sensitive person from the article. And this shit is affecting you. Thats the best thing about internet isn't it? You can avoid shit in here unlike real life where its best to face it. That is only reason I spend time playing the game. But do come back after the break to kick a**

I hope you take this well, but I think you really do feel harassed, it's best to try to ignore that person and not to give the situation this attention. I don't suggest you just suffer in silence, but I don't know that this is going to be an effective recourse.

I have multiple times in the past petitioned the admin for a block feature in this game, and I'm sorry that they haven't responded to the community desire. Perhaps a renewed appeal there may be fruitful.

I don't care anymore, because tbh I think this behaviour actually IS the game. How sad is that?
it's been like this for everything but my first 6 months of playing. The first 6 were relatively peaceful because I hadn't realised who the dirtbags were, yet.

Interestingly, there are ppl above me in the comments who have behaved like dirtbags too. But hey, we all have our own version of goodies and baddies.

I wish you a Happy New Year too : *
IF you stay, stay because YOU want to. Likewise, if you decide to go.

The ability to harass someone in game is another example of a major failing by the admin. We really should be able to block users.

You could try reporting Ajay and citing the ToS:

6.8 The following is a partial list of the type of Content that is prohibited on the Website. Content must not:
6.8.1 defame, abuse, bully, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise offend others;

In my opinion, he clearly admitted his intent to harass you in the screenshots. Of course, even if he were banned, he would simply come back and do it all again. Even though the ToS states that eRepublik can permanently revoke access to the site, as far as I know, they have never done this.

Now, this is just a thought, and I'm not as familiar with the game as some of you, but what if we were to harrass RGR in return? Fight fire with fire. The difference would be that we are not just one person harassing one person, but many people on one person. We could anger him enough that he would be forced to eventually stop. Just a thought.
