    don't buy into that bullshit. troll hard, enjoy the rage you induce in others, and keep playing games how you want to.
    I mean, it's your choice if you want to be a person that enjoys inflicting distress on other people for your own amusement, go for it!
    But I think most normal and empathetic humans would like to have less of that in their games .

    Who gives a shit. Stop being bullied. Bullies go away. Teach kids thick skin.

    If they haven't figured out ignore/report features of the game they are playing then I have zero sympathy for them. If the game they play has none of those features, then they are just asking for it if they continue to play it.
    Plenty of other games out there.

    Become? It always has been.

    And this is definitely more like 100%, not 30%, by our current standards of what is bullying.

    I would argue its a good thing. People need to be competitive and get into people's faces now and again.

    You only get bullied if you are garbage at the game.

    Cyber bullying is the dumbest thing I've ever heard about. Just put the person on ignore or tell them to go fuck themselves. Dealing with bullying in the real world is much tougher than this online shit.

    "Nearly a third of teens bullied" was accurate.

    People get bullied. Offline. Online. Online bullying may prove the Greater Fuckwad Theory but it's not like lack of anonymity stopped bullying. It's the idea that kids are "just being kids" that allows this to go on and spread from IRL to online and into adulthood.

    Hell, by modern standards they were probably raped and hate crimed too.

    So not wanting to play with people who are bad and are likely to cost you the game is bullying? This right here is the problem with the world, people are allowed to want to win and compete.

    But in competitive games, bad is relative. And removing the person responsible for causing you to lose on your team, means *someone else* is responsible for the team losing (Either yours or theirs).

    I agree that there are extremes, where people lose on purpose or have basically no grasp of the game, but fundamentally SOMEONE MUST be the worst player. And if the worst player is up against the best, even if all the players are similar in skill, that will make the player look much worse than they are.

    How do you mean? Do they instantly implode or disintegrate when someone bullies them?

    If not and they keep on surviving through it they're handling it just fine and the same as everyone else.
    We are often struck down easily. However no matter how often beaten, we can't forget the joy we felt during the dispute. The pleasure of stretching our willpower. The pleasure of trying out our own strength. The pleasure of seeing a manifestation of real comradely emotions among friends. The pleasure of seeing the world clearly split into camps of foes and friends. The pleasure of seeing an improvement in our own personality. by Sakae Osugi

    I don’t get all the sadist saying bullying is good no study shows this yet people say this because they believe it?

    Being bullied is what allowed me to eventually become an alpha instead of living a beta life. Punch the bully in the mouth or accept your fate. It is ok, some people are needed to serve. It isn't even hard.. keyboard warrior away at me or play the "no look at you" game. Its forum life 101.
