Several days ago DoE published an article about Ajay Bruno. Naturally, I though that was a misuse of the newspaper that should be supposed to be used for educating newbs about the game, and not political or sociological rants, even if well founded. I mean, these are the interwebs, right, and there are many douchebags, sociopats, idiots, trolls and other people around, just like IRL, but on the Interwebs, you've got a nice feature of just ignoring the shit out of that person and not caring what (s)he has to say. Don't get me wrong, I do completely support public humiliation of scammers, thieves and such, as that is a good warning for the masses not to do business with those. I'm even racist when it comes to doing business with certain populations because of my previous not-so-good experiences (of course, unless I know the person in question). If what is said about Ajay Bruno is the full and unabridged truth, then go for it, publish an article, but not in DoE, as DoHS or something similar would be much more appropriate. Also, given the things I saw written about him (for example: "Ajay: What a waste of semen. 9 months and you're still under developed."), I wouldn't really blame him if he got pissed at some people.
Also, as somebody said:
18 U.S.C. 875(c), it is a federal crime, punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, to transmit any communication in interstate or foreign commerce containing a threat to injure the person of another.
so, if threatened, feel free to submit a civil lawsuit. It's free in every country in the world known to me.
Well, I don't want to waste too much of your time on reading about my opinion. I'm about to present you a dare by Bia Pandora. She dared me to remove RGR from my friends and tell him all about that, and see what happens. Well, nothing much did, but see for yourselves (all images are clickable):
1) The dare:
after that I
2) Removed him from my friends list
3) told him about that (off topic, why the fuck doesn't erep notify you when somebody removes you from friends???)
after that I continued to talk with him, trying to make him send me to hell, stalk me, write an article with my RL info (he has me as friends on Facebook which I don't really use all that often, but still, at least he could have published my name, birthday, e-mail and telephone number). Well, here's the rest of the communication:
and some more
and this is his final response:
4) Summa summarum
I used curse words, he could have reported me.
I insulted his RL political party in a way, using a curse word, he didn't lash out.
He could have published my RL data, or prankcall me in the middle of the night, but he didn't.
oh, not that, we all know what he would do... When attacked by hypocrites, he'd rather die than succumb. Not that I believe in God and all that, but I do believe in the story of J.C. being a philosopher trying to make the world a better place.
Ask yourselves what would you do if somebody called you a waste of semen, and if that was not somebody, but somebodies consistently calling you similar stuff for ages while being manipulated by the Elite few into doing so.
I know what I'd do. At first I'd ask you wtf was your problem, then I'd start ignoring you, and at last I'd kindly ask the admins to shove a banhammer up your arse. But that's me. Somebody else might tell you he'll kill you. I know people that did threaten other eRep people, and when RL confronted, they drank beer together and laughed it all out. These are the Interwebs and what happens on the Interwebs usually stays on the Interwebs.
Have a nice day, night, week and New Year.
