Moon has rep becuae he's witty and that's basically it, which to be fair is probably the same for 10% of the community.
I don't read anything Searz writes , but he thinks about it a lot and that's probablly the same as the other. 90% of the community.

Basically MOBAFire.

I respect witty remarks. In fact, I like witty remarks. But what's being said right now isn't witty. Calling things 'cancer', 'trash' or '******ed' doesn't require any intelligence or wit. It requires a lack of consideration, impulsiveness, lack of self-restraint and an ego that needs to be constantly fed. It's just another case of the toxicity that currently tarnishes the League community.

Clearly 200+ rep must mean he's doing something right, but this case really isn't selling this 'wit' for me.

Also, I should probably be the first to say that we should try to take this conversation back on topic, and simply ignore any attempts to try and feed a persona's urge for attention.

Thank you to MissMaw for the signatures!

Well I can't say I'm surprised that a somewhat controversial offtopic thread has devolved into personal attacks, but that still doesn't make it okay.

Moon, you can disagree with someone and you can think someone is stupid, but please refrain from voicing insults on the forums. I think you should know where the personal attack line is by now.

Everyone else, flaming the flamer is not helpful. In fact, it's just as destructive. If you really want to respond to a personal attack by defending someone, I understand, but attacking that person in turn is just as much against the rules as the initial post. If you have a problem with someone's post, report it and move on with the discussion. I really don't like seeing 3 pages of argument about who is more idiotic or offensive.

I'm confident that you guys are capable of discussing a topic like this without degenerating into name-calling. Now do it.
Thanks to Hoppermh for the sig!

@psi... the way you worded that was extremely condescending...

Firstly, lumping everyone else together with moon in this case is completely unjust. You cannot compare someone who brashly came in to the discussion only to leave unnecessary and baseless hate to people who stood up for their opinions in a more than polite way (in comparison to how they SHOULD'VE treated moon after the way he acted)

Secondly, nobody truly attacked Moon... "flaming the flamer" and standing up for your opinion, especially when the opposing party's actions were of destructive and cancerous nature, is not the same.

And finally, moon completely ****ed this one up and he more than surely deserved a stricter punishment than just a warning post. You should seriously consider prohibiting him from posting in this thread unless he comes in terms with his passions and actually posts something constructive without calling everyone in the thread a moron. Thank you.

Perhaps flaming was too harsh a word, but nevertheless there doesn't need to be like 10 posts responding to one "toxic" comment.

Also I would consider these personal attacks:

Take your **** comments elsewhere please. Or better yet, learn to stop posting ****.

If I sound condescending, it's because this seems to happen in just about every offtopic thread that should contain any serious discussion and it's become rather tiresome.

To be fair, only the first example you posted is a "personal" attack. The rest are more or less assumptions made based on the comments he posted in this thread by people who probably saw him posting for the first time. If you're gonna be rude and disrespectful you can't expect the first impressions people get of you to be very good, and sharing those first impressions isn't exactly prohibited.


And yeah, I can see how it can be tiring xD It's sort of hard not to have a discussion like this go out of hand though, especially with people having the freedom to vomit all of their inner, suppressed rage unto unsuspecting people :<


Anyways, can we still even go on topic? I think most of the participants have given their opinion on most of the points made... Perhaps it's time to draw a conclusion and get it over with? xD

Yeah, I gotta agree on that one.

I'm gonna have to agree. Moon came in here looking to insult someone and start a fight.
