Not an assumption at all.chrisd wrote:There is a lot of assumptions in these words. The thing with assumptions is that they may not be true.

nara wrote:Agreed, chrisd. Thanks for the necessary reminder. It felt like I was cyberbullied last night, and it was very, very unpleasant. I am sharing this to highlight how relevant chrisd's message is. I was having an already unpleasant conversation with Durf, who accused me among other things of bringing Pressure's behavior upon myself, when Pressure entered the server just to attack me, again. Another troll entered and spectated, and contributed insults occasionally. It was altogether very damaging.

Not exactly sure why you question that. I've never stated that.
If you feel anyone you identify as a "troll/idiot/asshole" on this specific thread is panicking, you may be out of touch with the tron community.Monkey wrote:Upset probably isn't the right word, however, it seems to me that most of the trolls/idiots/assholes are panicking now that measures are being discussed and implemented to reduce their potency on the grid.TaZ wrote:I don't think anyone is upset that you have a problem with sexism and trolling on the grid.
