How to get abusive people kicked off
« on: 11 December 2018, 04:02:53 AM »
Yet again, for the sin of playing a better game I had someone be abusive and disgusting to me. Of course the incel had to use harrasing sexual imagery to their insult b/c I have a very feminine username. WTF? How do we get rid of this garbage? I pay quite a bit for the ability to play this game. THese people needs to go.

The generally suggested approach is to blacklist those players (the lightning symbol on the end-of-game screen), so you are not matched with them again. If lots of blacklists apply to a player, it will be further investiagted, so at some time they will feel the consequences.

In your case, as the chat was insultuing and harassing, you can contact me here via personal message or on discord (@Ingix) and give details, like opponent's name, game number and, if you have them, screenshots. I'll relay those to a person who deals with those complaints.

I can imagine that the abuse directed at you was orders of magnitude worse than 'incel' -- but I think that is also an unfortunate pejorative that would send someone here to complain...

Good point, Cave.
If one is going to complain (justly!!!) about written abuse, it's probably best not to commit the same offense.  (I had to Google 'incel' to find out what it means.) 

The use of the term is doubly offensive as it is clearly ad hominem...assuming that the player's sexual activity did not come up in the chat, of course.  :-)

actually incel made sense since his comments were about c words and what he thought of women...Next time I'll send a screen shot. Thanks!
