Year 14 Day 133 11:06
Players with the handles 'Thirteen' and 'Arete' have chatted much verbal abuse of the homeless on the regular Combine Chat today.

This falls under 'offensive behavior'. I think that they should be immediately and permanently banned from the Combine.

1) thirteen is not his handle
2) arete is probably the one who would have to do the banning
3) this is a demand not a question

Trust me, that's the least "offensive" thing I've seen from #swc-members in years.

Arete is just plain offensive

Perhaps sharing some logs would help?

In either case, I'm sure its an overreaction.

I'll provide them for you! Spoiler: It's an overreaction.

That .. is a genuinely funny log. A+ would read again.

It does sound like an overreaction to a throwaway joke, and wishing homelessness on them in turn actually seems like the meanest line in there. Certainly no vulgarity or harassment, in any case.

I can ban myself. True story.

Year 14 Day 132, 15:43 Arete banned your ('your' being me) account providing the following reason: For being a big jerkface.

Year 14 Day 132, 15:50 Syn has unbanned you.


Russ> This is an ok game with terrible people.

the OP is a new player within 48 hours (unless a recreate) so he might not understand the 'humour' that exists within the combine...

In any event... some people don't even go to the members channel due to the nature of most of the conversations that take place there. You can always elect to not join that channel.

It was sarcastic joking around Auseris. Lighten up. Not everyone around here is as morally straight as you, its part of the game/culture. And they cant be banned for generic comments like that. It only really comes to warnings or bans when directed at other players.

As a person who is periodically categorised as a 'hipster', I feel offended by this conversation and think you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Apart from Syn, Arete, Ten, Jevon, Heek, Cael and Kendall.
