I disagree. Total lack of rules on the net would likely have you calling me a stupid mother*****ng ********er ****er for disagreeing with you.
And why shouldn't I be able to do that? Would the emotional trauma prove too much for you? Is it the webmaster's job to protect your emotional integrity? We're talking about words here. Sticks and stones, the age old axiom. All I ask is that our fearless webmasters give us the tools to police the boards ourselves, which we have in the form of the ignore function. And that's what it all comes down to, ourselves. If we don't like one internet community or another we can always pack up and go somewhere else, somewhere with people more in line with our own views. I mean I don't go to 4chan but if that's what people want, let them have it.
In the end, it doesn't matter what I want because this isn't my website. Blue is free to do whatever he wants and I'd never argue he do otherwise. But the case of Blizzard is different because Blizzard sells products
. Persons purchasing products are entitled to certain things, things which include technical support. Putting one's name out there for all to see is not an acceptable preface to receiving technical support. Why they don't simply adopt BioWare's method of tying a forum account to a game's cdkey, and then ban people who grossly disregard forum rules?
