MMO Underbelly: Progress In Open Chat?

Today’s edition of the MMO Underbelly focuses on the real dirty side – the way people behave in open chat. Sanya Weathers wonders if it is getting cleaner? Could people really be better behaved on the Internet?

I told this story to a new friend working community for an Asian free to play, expecting shock and awe. She said with a gasp, “Someone actually said the n-word in open chat and thought he’d get away with it?”

No, I didn’t check her driver’s license to see if she was born yesterday, but I wanted to.

Finally, another friend sent me a paraphrased copy of a customer service ticket that had passed through his team. It said, basically, that the customer didn’t need a response or restitution for a bug, because he couldn’t care less about a make-believe item. He just wanted to report the bug.
