It might be the fertilizer getting to johndoes head. They put nasty stuff in it. Altered carbon at least you wore your gas mask! Lol
People don't respond because they wish not to encourage it.
Some just don't waste their time with nonsense. Some crude humor is funny and can be appropriate but there is a line.
I guess that line was crossed, from what I read.

Drys, I have a great sense of humor. BUT......if someone takes offense and expresses a complaint or concern, these players should respect that. Instead they further push buttons, probably even more so than before. They think they are funny and it makes them stand out.
I'm all for fun, but sometimes it becomes NOT FUNNY and NOT FUN. People should take into account other peoples' feelings. You can have fun in this game, smack talk and what not without constantly harrassing, embarrassing and humiliating others. It is disgusting those who do this. Perhaps the "man" thing to do is for JohnDoe and Eb (Alterd) to man up, say sorry, and just stop, eh?
Anyways, enough said. It is in Tbone's (JohnDoe) and Eb's court. We will see how much they respect or don't respect what other players are saying.

drys i agree, thats why their where nearly 40 posts before i said anything. let the dude blow off a little steam, save face and move on, but enough is enough already. the GM where in the right to change names, and remove his images.
their was once i made a crude comment to jan, i instantly regretted it, i apologized, and we moved on. people make mistakes, being male, we often make many. its pseudo-expected, one of the differences between being a man and boy, is owning up to your own mistakes, excepting responsibility, and not laying blame on others
when your a man, you don't need to show every one your penis, for them to know your a man. they'll know from your behavior. thats why public displays of male genitalia are unnecessary, lude, and childish

its not really the crude humor thats troublesome to me. its the insinuation that those that disapprove are "Prunes" where they expect others to be like them, or at least not say anything, while they are being offensive, its like a bunch on high school jackals

This is more fun than ever. I was never laughing at Marco I even said as much. I was enjoying Johndoe's post's. This is not an apology at all in fact Orbiter you said you once made a crude comment to jan you were right to apologize. She will do her best to form a group of people to attack anyone that says even the slightest thing agenst her. You people think you can suppress a bit of humor not a chance I will go on tipping over Port "A" Potties every chance I get and love every second of it. So good Old jan I just say I don't respect what your saying.

You all sound like a bunch of old Ladies I pity your repressed lives.

Everyone has an opinion. If only the world could see that they would be better off just listening to me.

This isn't about me,an old lady, or my so called "repressed" life. ha ha ha ha
Your responses here just further demonstrate that you have no regard for others if they are telling you they don't like something you say or that you have hurt their feelings. All I've said is that some people don't appreciate the crude humor. This is all Orbiter/Josias has said. If someone complains or speaks against it, the responsible, adult thing to do is to tone it down.
There was a time when me and Crafty were goofing off, and Crafty had a picture of the male genitalia as his avatar and I had NONONLUO girl in a tight tshirt showing cleavage. A player very nicely asked Crafty and I to change our avatars, because he was a minister/pastor and it made him uncomfortable. Because we respected him, we did as this player asked, apologized for any offense. We didn't try to offend him, make fun of him because his sense of humor wasn't the same as ours. Want to know why? Because we were decent enough to respect someone else and their views.
If you boys wanna draw pictures of penises and call each other bad names.......get Skype or something and flash and type away.....but not on a public venue where people can be offended and not want to read the filth.
Of course, we could opt to just not post or read the forum any more or even play the game any more. From what I'm seeing there is a massive decline in the forum posts and general chat. I wonder why.....because of players like you, JohnDoe, Wendy and a few others who are just downright rude, disrespectful and offensive and like to run people out of the game and don't care about others. I pity all of you and wonder what happened to make you behave like such vile individuals, even if in an online game. May be a game, but real people play it.
The little old repressed lady ha ha ha h aha

What is this? Russia? Euromaidan? Freedom of Expression is for everyone to enjoy... There is no need for people to speak up against this nonsense because the solution can be gained by ignoring the problem outright. Just observe and watch, what is the need of replying and feeding the perpetrators? Yes its inappropriate, yes that is how they regularly act and yes it may be funny but will you change them? No... Will it run people out of the game? I don't think so... This is a game, the REAL problem is the fact that certain loud folks take words said by a random stranger that may be living across the Atlantic Ocean TOO SERIOUSLY.
