    People who do that must be really immature and/or mentally handicapped or something. Seriously, those people should go to a doctor, ASAP.

    It's just a matter of time, if it makes profit, it will appear in the store. Like people prophesized, BMAH was just the beginning. Rich casuals need to be taught a lesson.

    Agreed, it removes you or detaches you from the ingame immersion when you see an item and automatically assosciate it with real currency and the item shop.
    Even if it's for a second it ruins continuity.

    Of course... I'm one of the few who appreciates that sort of thing.

    The majority then clicks 'Yes' to get rid of the votekick-window in the middle of their screen.

    That's a huge difference.

    Sorry buddy thats democracy.

    A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.

    The majority voted does not matter why they voted and no one can know for sure why they voted.

    Herp derp , keep telling yourself that buddy.

    Curious though, what magical means of deciphering a yes / no prompt does blizz have that will lead them to the reason people are kicked.

    Or join reality here with us and realize that blizz doesn't give a shit who's kicked for what group or why. You think they got people investigating this type of thing? lol.

    I'm sure that gives you comfort when you're confronted with a democracy of thugs versus you in an alleyway at night. Hey, they voted.

    Holy shit this thread will be better off when you stop with the terrible, unrelated analogies.

    Whose blocking my car again? Wtf lol.

    If either of us puts the other on ignore however, then we'll never see each other in any LFR ever. Win for both sides. You don't want to see people with hats - you have the very real power to do something about it - out yourself so you can be ignored.
    You didn't actually read what you replied to. I said I want you in my dungeon or lfr, so I can teach you. And you are the perfect example of someone who has difficulty learning, so I'm hoping I can have more opportunities to help you learn your lesson. Your instant queue won't help you when you get a 30 min debuff after being kicked. That's plenty of time to think about it. It's not going to stop with dungeons and lfr, I've already decided to not take any helmers in my pugs. I watched our recruiter ask one of our new prospects if he had one of the new helmets. She laughed right after so it may have been a joke, but based off the rumblings in gchat I doubt it.

    It's actually pretty hard to find the helmers, I am always on the lookout in shrine for them. Once you do find them it doesn't take long for the chatbox to fill up with /spit. This is just the beginning, blizz isn't done. You'll be seeing more crap in that store in the weeks to come and the anger will continue, and it will become more and more of an inconvenience for you helmers. Having to hide the things you bought before entering a dungeon, lfr, bg, pug, new guild kind of makes it seem useless to even buy the thing in the first place. That's really the whole point here. Those helmets have a stigma attached to them. You bought them to get attention, and now you're crying because it's negative. You spend $15 on a scarlet letter.

    Well, I'm going to use the same logic as many others in this thread have used.

    Being kicked from a LFR is not as bad or even anywhere near the same as being forcefully trapped in a parking lot.

    Understanding is difficult for you, as has been very well established by your posts throughout this thread. Go learn to think, come back, and the thread will be a better place.

    Love your sig.

    It is something that some players just cant grasp which is odd given all the majority rules and should be catered to mentality. You cant have it both ways. If players want to kick players who are topping meters then so be it. To think that players like to say that raiders are the only toxic players in the community.

    It shows how disconnected to reality the community is and how little value we put on other people anymore. If that's what you love then I feel bad for you.

    Not to mention common decency dictates tolerance, which this by definition is not.
    The player encourages Blizz in their cash shop practices. That's the reason.

    My part in this story has been decided. And I will play it well.

    Of course it isn't, but it's the same mentality. The only difference is that at Walmart the cops will come give you a wood shampoo for your "principles", while here Blizzard doesn't have the staff.

    Your usage of your disposable income would be better suited as toilet paper than supporting the cash shop. At least you could deduct the cost of toilet paper from that dollar bill your wiping with so not every penny is wasted. Also you don't run the risk of affecting anyone else by using physical money as toilet paper. Here, your actions are showing Blizzard that they can throw all kinds of shit in the cash shop instead of the actual game as long as you people are willing to pay for it.

    Please, show some consideration with your disposable income and use it for physical toilet paper instead. "A message from your friendly responsible consumer and WoW subscriber."

    You're not teaching anything other than about yourself. Go you.

    There is no stigma to anyone here but you.

    Oh man, the same thing we've been hearing since Wrath. Doomsay away, real gear won't be sold on the store.
    Q: Where the fuck is Xia Xia, SIU?!?!
    A1: She needs to start making eggs for Easter...
    A2: Drunk and sleeping somewhere.

    My guess is that one would be legitimate harassment, while one may just be harassment in a game. There is a very distinct difference.

    If it becomes "a thing" they do. It's not the first time Blizzard stopped people from cyberbully others. I also hate the shop, but I don't think that you can change them. Only one way to make them think: Stop playing and paying and when asked why give this reason. That's the only thing companys understand.
