    Bioware/EA Going Too Far With The Forum Moderation (Read: Hilarious LOL)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-w2tOW0Xrk

    So, apparently, this guy was banned permanently from the SW:TOR forums and the SW:TOR game itself for using the common internet memetic neologism "I'm 12 what is this."

    I don't care what you think about BW or SW:TOR, but reading that made me laugh for a good 5 minutes. I'm still chuckling LOL

    Same, but really, who are they hiring for moderators? I think they're outsourcing their moderator positions to North Korea or something because "I AM GRORIUS MODERATOR, U UNDERAGE? I BANNU!"


    In all seriousness, I can't imagine anyone agreeing with BW over this.

    They mod their forums as they see fit. You agree to be a part of this more or less when you sign their terms of service. Good lesson to all to read what you agree to before you sign it.

    Didn't happen to me - couldn't care less. Stop trolling forums and nothing bad will happen.
    Why am I back here, I don't even play these games anymore

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    We don't know what context he was doing it in, so don't accuse the guy of trolling.

    Am I mistaken or is the game rated T for teen? All the guy would have to do is prove his age and boom, account back. He said in the video wasn't going to try to get unbanned. Nothing to really get heated over

    Hahahahahah the GM that dealt with that must be either stupid or following the rulebook so closely that they have lost connection with reality.

    Thank fuck i didn't buy into the hype and get this game, as i would have been kicked out too as i LOVE having fun in trade chat and on the forums like that.
    Seriously, WTF are 'the powers that be' smoking during their lunch breaks ?

    Dude, you don't understand. Thousands of people have used that memetic on Blizzard's forums and on other game forums, and NO ONE has been banned. Bioware is interpreting their ToS in a fundamentalist way and that will only harm them going forward.

    There is no defense for their actions. Period. Just stop.

    Its more problematic when they hide posts about major bugs that are preventing hundreds of people from logging on. They need to either fix their client patching software or put up a mirror site to manually download the game files, instead of covering it up so its actually very difficult to research solutions.

But in the camps one learns: if you belong to a successful nation you are protected and you survive. If you are part of universal humanity - too bad for you -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    Are you planning on actually contributing something on MMO-C or are you just here to whine?
    Stating an opinion as fact does not make it fact. Opinions are not fact. So don't be stupid and make a fool of yourself by trying to pass off your opinion as fact.

    Fairly certain that I've already contributed something to 5 members by giving them a nice laugh.

    Please name ONE context where that meme isn't trolling or made in a pathetic attempt to be funny.

    Completely agree, it's their place and you sign an agreement to use it. And secondly, perhaps someone just mass-spammed your post with report? Sadly seen before. Or the last bit, your post can be taken serious by the moderator. And I don't think they can look up your account to see if you really are said age, if it was that, then it's a bit of self blame. Heh, but tough luck.

    ... or the whole answer could just be, don't troll the forum? Since your comment didn't contain anything usefull to anyone.
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..
