Latest Event Updates
As stated by Dev Chris, women are to blame for the change to housing which will allow multiple accounts to belong to a single household:
<+Chris_> We decided to lift the 1 per person limit for a few reason, mostly people wanting to buy a second house for their wives
Way to go girls. Just when I thought we were putting all that tradition and clinginess behind us. Now us guys can’t even have virtual man caves! What’s next, GPS units attached to the backs of our in-game characters with key-loggers for chat!?
So here is one that I logged via lurking a while back and just remembered as I typed up that Dick Moderators post. So, there was this one time, at SotA Camp… The_Hairy_Man was showing a great performance of his racism. Log paste here:
<+gingerale> I hope the interactive instruments will be done properly
<+The_Hairy_Man> how u think they should be done?
<+gingerale> Imagine having bollywoood style musicals in-game. :B
<+The_Hairy_Man> i would quit
<+The_Hairy_Man> i cant stand indians
<+gingerale> In a way that allows more than one kind of music
+gingerale> Aw come on. It’d be amazing. Just going down the street in a group.
<%cs2501x> The_Hairy_Man: That comment is wildly inappropriate. Perhaps I have misunderstood you?
<+The_Hairy_Man> if they put bollywood inthe game i will only ever play single player
<%cs2501x> The_Hairy_Man: That’s fine, but it’s completely unaccepted to make comments in that fashion in this chat about entire cultures.
<+Saraken> The_Hairy_Man: if we get user created content, then there’s every chance that could happen.
<+gingerale> The_Hairy_Man, I said that players able to play Bollywood style music and dance down the streets of a city
<+gingerale> In the fanciest and sparkliest costumes
<+The_Hairy_Man> would u be having a big cry if i said it would be sick if there was pop music in teh game
<%cs2501x> The_Hairy_Man: Who exactly are you addressing with that question, and why all the hostility?
<+The_Hairy_Man> im not hostile im always happy
I will note here however that the Moderator cs2501x is typically pretty fair and I don’t have an issue with him. Although he did give The_Hairy_Man a lot of movement for such a strong racist view in the main chat channel. Especially since Mystic kicked me for postulating a question about posting R rated video to chat about!
Here is some additional comments from The_Hairy_Man:
<+The_Hairy_Man> look at people like the mongolians, they never even grew their own food
<+The_Hairy_Man> they would just milk their horses and mix it with horse blood
<+The_Hairy_Man> hunt wild rodents and other game
<+The_Hairy_Man> eat wild plants
<+Ryo2810> just one of those things that really isnt sustainable in high populations
<+The_Hairy_Man> and all their clothing was made from the skins of the animals they would catch
<+Ryo2810> hunter gatherer is one of those things that only sustains a very small population
<+The_Hairy_Man> nuke china and india i say :)))
<+The_Hairy_Man> half the world gone in one go
<+The_Hairy_Man> maybe a virus would be better so people can still use the land there
Dear The_Hairy_Man, you are a fucking tosser.
It has always been a problem. But it never gets any less frustrating, especially since there is no game in which I can PK these nub foos in.
For example check this shit out from last week. It began when some fucking drop kick named imabreakemoffrealbad posted a youtube video in the chat. The video was in pretty bad taste all around, so I don’t need to re-post it. Basically in a nutshell it was a video of a reporter and camera confronting a woman about her daughter who was killed. The woman was obviously distraught, and handled it quite badly, she threw rocks at the reporter and camera man as well as told her dogs to attack them which they did do to a modest degree.
The “commentator” of the video was using quite bad language, often like moi, and one of the mods had the following to say:
%Mystic pokes imabreakemoffrealbad. Please don’t post things like that here. We try to keep this place G rated.
Ignoring the warning the poster immediately came back with a question about what the moderator thought it was rated, and he answered:
<+imabreakemoffrealbad> what would you rate the link mystic?
<%Mystic> Considering how many times he drops the F-Bomb… R 😛
So yeah, that should have probably been it for the topic. However the moderators(Mystic & Darkblade) start talking about the video and the content. Voicing their opinions on things like killing the dogs, being ok to throw the rocks at people and so forth.
I had to protest, I can’t imagine people in 2013 saying its fine to throw rocks at another human being so I said so. I also said that in the United States(I assume it was) a reporter shouldn’t have to consider their life to be in danger when interviewing another citizen, and that she lost a really good chance to plea her case for injustice to a big audience.
Of course right away I was trolled by the video poster about putting on a “political 101” class, of course I don’t let anyone get away with that shit so I responded with blow me and lick me twice of course 😛
In any case, it continued for a bit and I’m a bit put out that the moderators say, no don’t post this! Then start talking about it like it is perfectly fine rejecting my pleas for civility. I offered to post an R rated sex clip since posting and chatting about R rated videos seems fine.
Then I got kicked from the channel, I hate dick Moderators on power trips lawl. So tonight, I’m just lurking away and what comes up by the same two Moderators? Rape.
<%Darkblade> I can not draw the conclusion between rape and the comment he made while playing the game
Yeah, awesome. Rape, and joking about rape, how about you guys keep that shit in a private chat huh?
This concludes tonight’s edition of Dick Moderators In Chat & Abuse of Power.
12 June – @RichardGarriott will be in the office from 9AM CDT, tune into the #sota channel on IRC(irc.arg-irc.net:6667) for more.
Wow. I’m on the internets. Foos beware!
