Adam Sessler is Smart!

So I was looking over a few "Sessler Soapbox" video posts on G4 (I'm new to these posts) and came across THIS one.

  


I have to say, I agree 100%....Adam Sessler is on the right path with this argument folks, maybe you should listen.

This is good to hear, but I want to expand this argument further about the internet itself.  The relative anonymity empowers some people, like the target of those slurs for example, to say smart or exploring things to help develop their personality in a safe way, but there are tons of people who toe the line of expectations by saying stuff like this, attacking specific people, harassing for the fun of it.

And there are people who act nice when they're offline, but do this as a hobby when online, stirring up trouble deliberately.  To me it speaks to how some folks like to switch that common, human decency stuff off when they think it's convenient to do so, as if that's the only way to let off steam or be accepted.

Back to games, I expect random assholes to do this sort of thing, but when becomes overwhelming it changes the nature of play.
