Dohoh you bugger!
A story of trolling: How Russians destroyed my steam acct.
Every time they tried to talk on global I'd respond by just going "shhhhhhh quiet time" over global.
Don't be a dick on the internet, problem solved.
No. What he was doing was an incredibly tame version of what anyone will do on the vast majority of Arma servers. You just don't talk in global. Keep it in group/direct/vehicle/ maaaybe side but most likely not. If you think that is being a dick, you must be new to the internet.
Spamming chat repeatedly after someone says something isn't being a dick? He got what he deserves. Maybe next time he will think twice before spamming.
Just because the internet is full of assholes doesn't make one person being a dick any less annoying.
lol Russians troll by giving you money. hahahaha that's so fucked up.
I think it's more like "Russians troll by bouncing a check in and out of your account" or something, but yeah, still funny that those guys cared enough to do this. Funny and sad.
To quote Crytonomicon: Ask a Russian engineer to design you a shoe, and he'll give you something that looks like the box the shoe came in. Ask him to design something that will slaughter Germans, and he turns into Thomas fucking Edison.
Russians have always been Godlike trolls.
So let me get this straight.
- Russian asshole uses a kiosk to deposit money into someones account.
- Makes their bank issue a chargeback on the transaction.
- Steam's policy is to restrict accounts that have chargebacks.
All well and good, however: Why the hell are Russians allowed to deposit funds into a steam wallet without logging into the account?? Seriously.
That's a shitty thing they did, but you gotta respect the creativity that went into it. After the initial "Oh fuck!", I'd have laughed my head off, found the guys what did it (if possible), and given them props. I mean, I'd still report them, but with a smile on my face.
10 rubles is about 30 cents, by the way.
And sorry dude, there are a lot of very capable people in Russia who feel like they do not get enough positive attention so they turn to trolling. It is quite a clever troll though, you have to be a good sport, especially now that you got unbanned.
I think they need to make an entirely separate server for Russians. I see this kind of crap all the time from russians and its stupid how valve lets it continue. The one thing I know is that if it takes 4days to get a response from Online support, I will just drive to Seattle and visit them directly as its only a 30min drive away and get that shit fixed same day.
