Then how can any company hold any public forum, if any person can get information and doxx someone?
Wouldnt that risk be so intense that its just not worth it? I mean, if they only put a players name in the thread showing who made a report (which actually, goes against our conversation since me typing your name doesnt give any information about you, but rather me), yeah, no information about that person is gotten.
Yup. I dont think that the 0.0000001% chance that someone digs through information to find RL information about a person and actually follows through on that illegal act by committing another illegal act on them is worth being scared of. Others dont want to see that chance being taken (oddly enough, by commenting on here we have all opened ourselves to the very thing you guys are arguing against. To me thats funny!)
Actually, I do lock my doors on my house, but thats due to the contents. I own firearms, and keep them locked up as secured as I can. My vehicles? Keys are in them in my driveway. Id rather a thief attempt to steal my trucks then break into my house when Im asleep. Dont forget, Im in a country where we are not allowed to defend ourselves and will be held criminally responsible for defending ourselves against home intruders.
In a way, yes. In a perfect society where people treated each other with respect, there would be no need to lock things down like Fort Knox. We now live in a drug infused, ■■■■ hole society where theives and criminals are given slaps on the wrist.
The real problem is, people dont have any respect for people, or their property. If I seen a bike on someones lawn, do I take it, or do I walk away? We shouldnt have to lock everything.
Not sure if youre from Canada, but that is exactly what is going on. And the reason it is, is because we dont have a second amendment like the US, and why guns wont be banned in the US. But, I agree, thats a tangent, lets not go much more into that.
Are you insinuating that putting someones name on the forums is illegal? Was that the point of your last two quotes of me?
If so, how are people allowed to tag others? Isnt that essentially and potentially doxxing them?
^^ This pretty much explains it. You assume that by putting a name on the forums, that its the path to committing and illegal act. Is this @DeaconElie doxxing you because I tagged you? I mentioned your name. Judging by your comments, it is right?
Youre missing 100% of what I said. Let me try breaking it down.
15 reports come in from the same player about building infractions on 15 different servers (Ill even include that they are indeed worthy of a report)
15 bans come in.
Do you think that person is going to go back and play on those 15 servers, or did that person just jump around looking to get people banned because it gives them either a power trip or they think they are doing the game a service?
Ill guarantee you, I could go onto that many servers and find thinks worthy of a report.
The question is, whats the point if you arent going to play there? Heck, for funzies I hopped onto a server I used to play on. First base I found had foundation spam around it. I laughed when I got a disconnect by their base, and just moved along. How much would you bet that I could hop into another server and find another ban worthy base?
Thats kinda my point…if it aint gonna bother the server you play on, why jump servers to look for things to ban people?
People have tossed that idea around on the forums, that people do that…and its merely a theory. IF Funcom implemented this idea of names, it would either prove or disprove that theory, much the same as showing the evidence of the report that got a player banned proves their guilt.
