Quote fromI think the whole argument against kids is blown way out of proportion. There are just as many older folks (well, mature ... 20+) that talk and spam like that.
Whenever all of my friends and I were heavy into Diablo, we were about 13/14 I believe. Nobody I knew ever spammed like that. (Of course, anyone below 13 shouldn't be playing Diablo).
You're always going to have idiots, acting like idiots. It's the consequence of having the internet, where you don't have to answer for your actions. People love being jackasses, sometimes.
A reputation system would work wonders. It would be hard for this genre though.
