As I stated on Bluesnews, I hope this APOC kid gets reprimanded harshly.
You like your job? Do it right! Don't go scaring the fucking daylights out of your COMPANY's loyal fans, and pissing off the general community by stating shit you "Aren't Clear About."
My god. Shit like this needs to be ironed out waaaaay before any fucktard runs out to make needless posts regarding company policy they don't understand.
These moderators need to understand this:
The people who come on those forums are mostly kids with nothing better to do.
Sure I play online, but being a damn near thirty year old gamer (old school, muthafucka), I work steady and frankly, couldn't give any less of a rats sauteed asshole (Carlin, muthafucka) about what forum posters and moderators do at Egalitarian Asshats. What's more is I keep a USB mic jack plugged into the console so I don't have to talk or listen to everybody else.
Now on the other hand, I do care about the freedoms that we gamers enjoy and want to ensure that things don't change too drastically.
Make your microtransactions, market your bullshit, whatever. Don't fuck with my freedoms. If I pay for it, I will not accept being banned from it, lest it was just and my words will never justify taking away what I've paid for.
My words don't come with a legal requirement. Once I've purchased the title. That's that.
Hell, if I stormed the Egomaniacal Alumni Sluts offices and pissed in the face of Peter Moore, I'd expect: An Asskicking. The Cops. Harsh Language. I would not expect to be banned.
I'd want to play my games in jail. Free and clear from the village people they hire to moderate.
