How about you just respect the fact that not everyone wants to be 'joked with' in that way and respect that decision.

It becomes bullying when people make it known they don't want that kind of attention and you continue to do it to them.

Just saying.

You're half right.


It's not really awful thinking though, lots of people can joke with one another anywhere.

What you're right about is someone making it very clear they don't want to be around a certain person for good reasons. 

In this specific scenario from these players involved I see nothing but banter and the other side is doing it right back. If they sit there and mess around at first but start calling it harassment and bullying when the heat turns up I just don't agree.

That's your own opinion and you should just learn to respect theirs when they say stop it means stop. Not everyone is you nor has to conform to your way of thinking.

Also, people can provide evidence of prolonged, heavy bullying and harassment with a ton of proof and nothing ever gets done about it. Sad.

If you can't handle a little bit of banter then you just need to LOG OFF

The internet is not a Safe Space, it is the wild west filled with all types of people. GMOD is no exception.

this ^

not everyone can cater to everyone

if someone is doing something you don't like, its simple, go somewhere else, or go play something else for a little while.

The internet is full of people with different opinions and people will always be offended and be snowflakes. Instead of being upset, just take the banter and play along with it, or ignore it and do something else. (Hell, I'm Thea the Thot for a reason, I decided not to be offended when people call me a thot because I literally couldn't give a shit) just roll with the jokes and ignore it

@Mira Delaire hit my PMs and show me proof of this then, otherwise it's more hearsay.

Also Dan 100% agree, the internet has never been a safe space, don't get me wrong I believe there's an extent of what's okay and what isn't okay, but people need to realise that there's options just to get off and do something else.

Timmy hit the dog so the dog bit him and now he's crying and cries harassment against that dog? 

Some logic, just log off at that point. Not a conforming of my opinion, it's common fucking sense. If Hogwarts isn't safe enough for you or others then just go do something else.

Thats literally what your getting so triggered about.

To be even more possibly clear in hopes you get it, is that if you get "bullied" and report it right away without retaliation, then 99% of the time it stops, by staff or just itself. If you retaliate, that's completely on you then. In this specific scenario from everyones told stories, both parties are bantering back.


EDIT: If you want to talk about conforming, you can't expect the internet to conform to not ever joke with you or around you every time you log on.

This thread should be locked to be honest, it's doing nothing but fueling fires

Kappa  and from what I understand, nothing about this situation was harassment. Yall are playing GMOD . It's a community filled with banter and people being shitheads. If you cant accept that oh well.


I mean if I can tell someone they have a stick up their ass and they can joke about it and take it in fun then somebody can deal with being told their mic sounds like they live in a yellow submarine *dum dum*

The arguement of just 'log off' due to people harassing is that, while it works for that moment, future instances that keep arising that cause that player to log off, just means a situation wasn't handled probably in the best way.

I know the situation, there was better ways of handling it in my opinion. I think it's funny as fuck, but still better ways of dealing with it.

Sick of being in my head and thinking about my fate
And worried about my health
Wanna waste away my days with a pretty young thing
And blow through all my wealth
I made some mistakes, not so good with planning
But I got some skills in easy living
Cut my ties with desperation
and learned to live with a little sensation

Hey
Just for the day we’ll pretend I’m made of money
I’ll be your sugar daddy
Hey
Let’s make a fool of ourselves and crash a party
Act like we own the place
