I understand why, from a buisness perspective, GDNA can't have it that way though.

gDNA isn't about taking people who deserve it down a notch or six. Besides, I prefer to do that without resorting to schoolyard name-calling. Much better to calmly point out the flaws in their arguments and make them seem like the raving lunatics.

That article wasn't about being an asshole to people because they deserve it, it was about how to keep trolls from destroying the internet as it currently exists.

Hey Sensational,
don't take my sermon too personally. Open criticism and entertaining mockery is fine but I can't help but chuckle that when the lines get pushed and someone says a comment too far on here (racial slurs, attacking someone's nationality or other things) that the trolls get all QQ when their posts are deleted and do crybaby rage quits because they weren't allowed to keep exploding like a kid who had their lollypop stolen by the teacher.

I mean, hell, I've had quite a few posts deleted on here and I've nodded and said "Okay, yeah, probably saying that was a little too harsh for a GAMING community which appeals to youths aged 13 and up, including the 30 going on 12 demographic".

Yeah, that's sort of what I was saying aswell.

Well yeah, that's sort of the point. The forums never had a "demographic" before, it was open, unmoderated and used by people of the same mindset. Now it's a community for that very demographic you mention (And all the XxXShadowyDeathXxX guys don't exactly help the situation), and they have to change the rules to keep up with that. That sucks for those of us who liked it for what it was.

Two very entertaining bits of nostalgia. And Armaya makes a very good point. So.......
