Can't wait till they remove voice chat so no one can offend my mom anymore...
I didn't mean to answer your question I was questing if your question was relevant. "Why dose it need to be stopped?" Is completely different form "Why dose it need to exist?" And if we approach it form a pragmatic standpoint it dose exist. Making "Why dose it need to be stopped?" A much more pertinent question.Shadow-Phoenix said:Not really I'm asking why does tea bagging need to actually exist, telling me "nah it;s a thing now" doesn't answer the question at all.Eddie the head said:I fail to see the relevance in asking that. It is a thing now. Asking why it needs to be stopped is different form asking why it's a thing.Shadow-Phoenix said:
what your forgetting is that toxic players will become even more toxic in their attempt to find something that would be considered offensive, hell if i played the game the fact that they don't trust me to be modest to other players would make me want to do some toxic stuff (like taunting, dancing on their corpse, etc)Starbird said:Yes and no.
Removing 'teabagging' because someone might be offended is silly.
Taking steps to curb toxicity and obnoxiousness between people in your game is fantastic.
What about my 'right' to enjoy the game (alongside the majority of non-toxic people) without someone flaming, spouting hatespeech etc?
Not sexual assault. Sexual harrassment. Theres a big difference between the two. The former being an actual attack on a person. However the latter is usually far more sublte. Usually in cases of sexual harrassment the victim sues the company assuming they were complacent in allowing it to happen (usually after the purpetrator has been reported a few times). It could be argued that allowing and even encouraging teabagging could be allowing and encouraging sexual harrassment opening the company up to legal action.johnnybleu said:I can't conceive of any reality where my virtual character touching your virtual character in any way could be considered sexual abuse. Even if there was a "grope" animation. If teabagging was enough to get someone convicted of sexual assault in real life, then we'd all serve multiple life sentences for the countless murders committed online. I mean, the act was clearly unwanted and there was a violent tone to the act.
