Oh, you can tell the little kids simply by how they talk and interact. It's those you have to keep an eye on, because the older kids are simply cruel, and it resembles a junior high playground when they find a "little brother" to pick on. -_-

 

And why parents should never let their kids play that young without supervision. The larger games have little creeps playing at times.

Yeah or they could be some of the people we find on MMO forums. Stuck in their ways and hell bent on declaring their opinion law, facts be damned.

Everyone isn't glorious behind the scenes but all of us can pitiful in some way to others.

The guy making 8.00 an hour is sad to the guy making 14.00 an hour while both are sad to the guy making 35.00 an hour. You get the idea.

I befriended a kid once in a game. Let's just say I had to draw barriers. He started sending me porn and asked me for good links. I almost thought I was in a sting operation and asked him to stop sending porn. It seemed sort of contrived. Then there was a 17 yr old I talked to who was better but still complained about being adopted and how his mother was a crack addict lost on the streets that he wanted to get to know but couldn't find. That's pretty deep stuff to get into with people so I stuck to giving him advice about women if he asked how to get dates easier.

Being nice is not being open to everyone at all times nor do you have to talk to everyone who wants to talk to you. Some people who whisper you over and over are just lonely and if you can handle their emotional vampirism and want to encourage it, then yes, respond to everyone at all times. It's not really your job in an MMO to find lost souls and help them. Most people need to deal with their own problems to actuate real change. You might listen but you don't want to carry their burdens and them be a reason you stop logging in because they won't stop talking to you about their problems. Then you are just a crutch so eventually you will expect them to act instead of react and they might not causing a rift in the friendship because you can't hold them to it. That's when it turns into emotional vampirism. They suck suck suck you dry but have no interest in improving anything because you are enabling them to vent about it constantly and keep reliving it while being in a state of paralysis.

I don't treat everyone with respect because it's something you earn. I do treat everyone like a person until they show me otherwise.

You can always treat someone with respect until they prove you wrong :D Maybe your definition of treating people like a person is "respectful" though so I dunno....

That is how I approach it. I know other people/players feel like other people have to earn the respect given to them, but I feel like everyone should be respected until there is a reason not to.

I respect everyone, even on here. :)

But I do not respect everyone's views, and I do not feel I should tip toe round others so as not to upset them. The problem is people mistake their views for themselves. You are not your opinions, criticism of some ideas you hold is not criticism of you, the person.

You find this particularly in teenagers who think their opinion on a game is as quintessential to them as their music and everything else they form an opinion on. It is just an opinion, an idea, it is not you, us, or them.

id take it a step further and say , respect anyone you come across there are a lot of idiots out there that think just cause their in the internet their actions have no consequences .

I think the O.P has it right ... And my 2 cents is doesn't matter who you are your actions defined your reality.

Gamers are people too.

I have been friends with a mmo player for a week or two now, talking to him every now and then in game. I then get a message from his mom saying thank you for being nice to my son, he is only 11 years old. 

One of the reasons I don't talk to anyone in MMOs in the fact that, at my age, I definitely DO NOT want to find out I am talking to kids.  In the social climate we have these days, any man talking to a kid online - even unknowingly - risks being tarred with the "internet predator" label.  I play safe and limit my ingame chat to polite inconsequentials and keep conversations as brief as possible.

It's not any better for women, either.

 

Remember going to the store one day and encountering a kid who was riding the bus for the lack of anything to do (a sign of an abandoned kid left to his devices). His hair was nappy, skin messed up and looked like he didn't eat in days. He was overly friendly at that (look at how life/experience changes you when seeing that is considered dangerous in this day and age), so I took him into the grocery store and got him a meal at the deli and tried to warn him about being safe. But that is as about far as I could go, as adults with kids these days are considered predators (he was a Black kid). If I called DFACS over it, I would be called in to be grilled over it, too. All because of real predators good people can't help those truly in need. And my dad was a career policeman. -_-

 

Growing up it was a whole different world. My neighbor was the town's mayor (dad was the police chief), and I would go over to her house to help her (dad had me working at 4 years-old sweeping and emptying baskets at the city jail -- yeah, every bit like you saw on Andy Griffith --  for a king's ransom of half dollar [loved those coins]), and she would host little luncheons I'd never forget. Today, unless you have a team of witnesses, don't even open the door for a kid even if you're the mayor and the kid's the daughter of the police chief. :(

Agreed! I live by this and it's my mantra whenever I'm playing with others.

Treat others as you want to be treated.

What are you talking about?  Yeah if you started asking to meetup and have some kind of adult activity involved maybe then you might be there.  If you are that paranoid that you may talk to a kid, I can not imagine what your social skills are around children if you think you have to tip toe around the internet.

It's not paranoia, it's fact. Online gamers aren't the most honest people, and they will lie in a heartbeat, too.

 

Don't take chances. Talk in public and have plenty of witnesses.
