    /spit is also being done to a character and not the player. It also does not kill the character. Doesn't even slow the character down.

    The "toxic" behavior in the game typically seems to revolve around elitism and the "have vs the have nots". Has nothing to do with emotes or /<whatevr>. People may also need to recognize when they are not able to separate themselves from their character in game and learn when to step away and take a breather.

    Seems to me if they want to reduce toxic behavior they would need to remove players ability (in game and on other sites) from viewing other players in any way. Can't look at gear. Remove gear score. Can't look at talents. Block any and all outside sites and sources from accessing game data. Etc. Gamers would also need to revert to a mindset where a 2 hour dungeon run (exaggerated example) is not such a big deal and not expect everyone who plays the game to spend weeks studying before playing.

    Devil is always in the details and I'm likely not hitting the nail right on the head here. I just think they have the wrong idea about how to mitigate the issue at hand.

    It's funny we can kill people, loot corpses, skin animals, burn houses and crops, not to mention straight up genocide in various quests and activities but spitting is across the line.
    And all those emotes are still in the game because noone made an addon to auto insult others for no reason. Thank the addon other and every idiot using it for the removal, if they insulted manually nothing would have happened.

    He himself has valid criticisms of the game but they're all wrapped up in exactly the kind of toxicity that eventually blossoms into what's been going on at Blizzard.
    How would it blossom out into sexual harrasment exactly? There are always these vague "it's a slippery slope" kinds of arguments that make no sense to me. Asmon is quite a character who's encouraging a "back to the school playground"-type mentality in a videogame, but never have I gotten any reason to believe that he'd disrespect women in such manners that have been going on at Blizzard.

    I never use the /spit, I rage when I get /spit on when I am killed in pvp but JESUS the "omg I'm soooo offended"-people need to get the fuck off our planet. What's next? Remove /lol as someone might cry in their shower after being lol'd at?

    NOOOOO YOU CANT JUST SPIT ON PLAYERS FOR BUYING A MOUNT AGAINST THE ENTIRE IDEA OF CLASSIC TBC

    while were add it, just remove /slap /frown and any of negative emote in the game because we cant have mean people in a world where your fee fees might get hurt by an emote

    It's a futile gesture and Muffinus has it all backwards. They truly do not understand the issues this game has. /spit in Classic is a consequence of bad decision making. Not inherent toxicity in the player base. In any case, people will use /fart, /pick and /slap emotes now. Are they going to sterilize the game from that as well? Might as well disable all chat functions then.
    You obviously didn't read how they fixed it. They didn't remove the emotes. Just the ability to use them against players. Tha tis all they have to do. And who are you to dictate what are bad decisions? The /spit incident is a consequence of a minority of childish bullies trying to dictate what can and cannot be in game. Those players need to grow up.

    Those anti-shop people are not "the vast majority of players" .they are a vocal minority. The actual vast majority do not care one way or the other. Stop trying to act li9ke the majority agree with you,

    Agagin, the /spit emote is not removed from the game. All that was removed is the ability to do it to other players. You are free to /spit om any npc you want to your heart's content.

    Depends how hard you kick. Honestly, if you don't do it with full force, the puppy should be totally fine. Besides, there are bigger problems in the world to worry about it too much.

    Oh shut up, the whole point is that you can't do it to players. It's about the principle, I don't need blizzard to be my parents and shield me from someone targeting me and typing in /spit on their key board, grow a fucking spine lol.

    Where this fails is it doesn't address intent. People are doing that because they are harrassing people who bought the shop mount. That should not be tolerated in any way.

    The "toxic" behavior in the game typically seems to revolve around elitism and the "have vs the have nots". Has nothing to do with emotes or /<whatevr>. People may also need to recognize when they are not able to separate themselves from their character in game and learn when to step away and take a breather.
    This is nothing more than making excuses for players harrassing other player and blaming the victim. This behavior is part of the problem.

    Seems to me if they want to reduce toxic behavior they would need to remove players ability (in game and on other sites) from viewing other players in any way. Can't look at gear.

    Sever strtawman irrelevant to the point at hand. IN this case, players are harrasing others for something they did outside the game, not within game play.

    Devil is always in the details and I'm likely not hitting the nail right on the head here. I just think they have the wrong idea about how to mitigate the issue at hand.
    To address people harrassing others because the bought a shop mount, this is the right idea. All they have to do is remove the ability to target other players when using ANY remote.

    I have a better idea. how about you grow up and not harrass other players? That is obvious why you are mad. The fact that you need to be a jerk to other players to have fun is very disturbing.

    They have a lot of thought of what players want. What you are really saying is that they don't have enough thought about what YOU want. But you are not the only one playing the game and not everyone agrees with you on how the game should be. Taht is what ther devs have to deal with. Millions of players with a million different opinions,. Yours is not the only one.

    Everyone here commenting the fact, "Why don't yah just remove chat all together" careful what you wish/insert sarcasm/joke for here. Bungie did it, as we can NOT use local/general chat at all in any space (PC Version) due to children unable to restrain themselves and I use the word 'children' loosely here. What the comments here suggest shows exactly why more than likely chat will be severely restricted along with emotes. You made your bed, now sleep in it...*shrugs* More you take a stand and fight the good fight, shows exactly why it has to be done unfortunately.

    This is ridiculous. In-game we can kill one another, t-bag one another after killing but we can't spit? So this will help "fix" Blizzards internal issues, how? This is nothing more than an impulsive move to try and calm people/groups down. Pandering! When is enough enough? What else gets removed? You can take out every fucking bit/byte in the game but that's not going to fix Blizzards internal problems. Don't try to distract from the real problem by ruining the player experience even more, it's bad enough as is. It's simple, terminate anyone who was involved in these perverse activities. YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE! Terminate anyone in a position of management who knew and did nothing to stop this. YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE! Hire people who actually care about people. Hire people who actually care about the game.
