Request Denied.

FightingNote wasn’t happy about his friend request being ignored. At all.

    Real mature. Problem is, thirteen year old boys are fucking pussies who don’t know how to lose. Most of these posts are from sexually frustrated male teenagers who can’t get laid. They can’t get laid and a girl just beat them on TF2, so they rage.

    “Oh your name looks feminine. Let me send you a friend request. What?! Friend request denied? Why you! Let me at em, let me at em! I will now send you hateful messages!” >.>

    I can relate to this. I get friend requests all the time from guys on xbox live. I think it’s crazy that having boobs makes you friend material.

    Eh. Some people just seem to friend everyone they see. I rarely play with strangers online, and when I do, I don’t like using the headset. Still, I’ve had people I’ve played a match or two on an opposing team send a friend request to me. I don’t get it– maybe they like my rivalry. Or perhaps they just like inflating their friend number… I don’t know. Either way, my XBL handle is clearly non-feminine.

    So what I’m trying to say is that we don’t *know* the original intentions and inspirations of the friend request. There could have been another reason for the friend request.. We don’t know the whole story.

    Still, regardless of his (and we’re assuming FightingNote is a dude, aren’t we?) original intentions, his misogyny is unacceptable.

    I actually checked – It’s would’ve been easier to put ‘c’ in and spell “cunt” correctly, he went out of his way to hit the ‘k’. I think he’s dyslexic.

    More likely he deliberately spelled it incorrectly.

    It’s funny how this site’s focus is supposed to keep away from preconceptions but even within the posts people are still being prejudice against other stereotypes. In this case of course it’s dyslexic’s.

    Just an interesting fact.

    This dude is an asshole. Hard to say if he’s doing it all because she’s female, but regardless it’s safe to say he is an asshole.

    I think you’ve misjudged what this site is for. It seems that for most people who come here it is to get a laugh. People like you however….you seem to just want to point out people’s grammar errors or point the finger if someone pulls a little sarcasm…. It’s just a comment board….you don’t have to be a troll….it’s ok. Just laugh at the posts and some of the comments and move on. No need being a flamer or joy-kill.

    I’ve also have gotten these friend requests you speak of but I’ve also been playing with female gamers long enough to know that they get two to three times as many friend requests as male gamers. He supposedly knew that she was female judging by his reactions. Plus you never fully know unless you were there. Don’t think I’m saying that this was indeed how this certain circumstance played out. I am guessing it is based on my experiences however and there is nothing saying that it isn’t so take your comments somewhere else.

    i am wondering where the rest of these comments are. We are only getting one side of snapshots of the convo being had. How about you show the entire thing instead of the other persons comments. I would and i am sure i am not alone, like to see what the escalation point was of conversation.

    I’m sorry. I should have known that your guesswork takes precedent over other people’s opinions or reality itself.

    Really? You take apart my comment and play the martyr when I try to defend myself? Oh wow, must be nice trying to get a rise out of people on comment boards. I’m so jealous! :P

  • Anonymous

    If it’s really just to get a laugh then is it true that all girl gamers are fat, ugly, or slutty?

    Besides, I only pointed out your grammar mistake in a separate post because you were being sexist. It’s not as if you were completely undeserving of critique. If you’re going to be sexist, at least have the decency of doing it grammatically correct.

    I don’t think that someone ‘getting laid’ or not has anything to do with violent verbal behavior over the internet against women.

    /sarcasm I’m so upset that I don’t live up to your standards oh great grammar god. I am unworthy.

    I was responding to your last sentence– I don’t see how everything before it changes the meaning of it.

    You feel you have ample first-hand observation of women getting more friend requests than men. And based on that general experience, you made a judgment on a specific person in a specific instance.

    The fact that you say, “there is nothing saying that it isn’t” means that you’re willing to condemn someone unless someone proves they’re innocent, which is the wrong way around.

    And then you finish the sentence telling me to silence my own opinions here. Why do you think you have the right to say that?

    My snarky response was designed to provoke you into looking at yourself as to why I said that. I’m not here to attack anyone, but I really don’t appreciate being told to shut up for being the voice of reason.

    And if my snarky response failed to get you to look inward, then, yeah, I’d hope it’d at least get a rise out of you.

    I don’t think that’s necessary or even possible unless people are always recording all their gaming sessions.

    This site should not be used to attack specific people (unless it’s really obvious that they’re a terrible person, but that’s hard to prove, but II3rdII is a real contender). This site should be used to help change the atmosphere of the gamer culture by discouraging people to say misogynistic things by making fun of them for it.

    If twits realize that they’ll lose face with their fellow gamers for making such comments, it will go down except for the most douchiest gamer.

    It seems you can’t be a female gamer without shagging a member of your family.

    Seriously the number of insults that revolve around that is not so much shocking as it is depressing…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4XPRK3OFX6EZIHO2NW73WLV2QE TarverM

    You can’t be a gamer at all and not get this kind of comment. If I listened to them, my genitals would’ve fallen off from the number of times I’d have had intercourse with my mother, sister….. And sometimes brother.

    I wonder if he acts this way when rejected in real life?

    I guess I’ll have to start explaining myself better to you because you seem to be taking what I am saying the wrong way. I judge(omg! Throw a fit!) instances, no matter how small, based on my knowledge just like most of the population in the world does. I’m not saying that I’m right, nor that you are wrong. You opinion is as valuable as everyone else’s. My last sentence, “there is nothing saying that it isn’t so take your comments somewhere else” was actually politely telling you to stop replying to my posts because I grow bored of arguing with you. I didn’t specifically tell you to take your comments off site. You just jumped to that conclusion because I didn’t specify. Seems like I’ve learned my lesson and will be more blunt with people from now on…..

    Oh I get it. Since you didn’t want to be his e-friend, you MUST be in to incest. Gotcha.

    You like to say some pretty galling things, but if you have no interest in being right (or at least avoiding being wrong), then I suppose this conversation is pointless.

    Sad but true!
    In a side note, lots of very passionate arguments in this thread :)

    Hmmm…So you’re now implying that I’m wrong? Did I read your comment right? If not, I apologize. If so, unless you can prove me wrong with something more than petty arguments, I stand by what I’ve said.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t mean to imply that you are wrong, though I can understand how you can think that. I think there’s a good chance you are right and Fighting Note sent the friend request because the recipient has a feminine XBL handle. However, you nor anyone else can be close to certain– there just isn’t enough information.

    I’m all for making fun of these featured XBL jag-offs for what they say, but I find it distasteful to make assumptions and stereotype them with just a superficial glance, no matter how ugly it is.

    Don’t you see that making assumptions based on cursory contact, then saying unpleasant things based on the assumption is, in part, exactly the kind of thing that this website aims to end?

    Clearly what you’ve said is no where near as vile as the dicks featured on this site. Still, some of the things you’ve said are on the same path (though it’s miles away) and it can be a slippery slope. We need to be careful not to objectify these people. They aren’t a random, name-less goblin in a ravening horde, they are people who deserve to be treated based on what they’ve done, not what we imagine they have done.

    You seem like a level-headed person, Ogre. I might make a shady comment every now and then but I like to think of myself a bit more tasteful than most of the culprits on this site. I never said myself certain, nor would I ever with such a limited amount of information. I was being sarcastic and hence the ” ” I didn’t mean for it to be taken literally. I usually watch what I say anywhere I go and try to not judge people based on what little information that I might have on them. Don’t think I don’t value your opinion or that your words won’t change my actions in the future. Right now, however, I don’t see myself wronging anyone.

    Thanks. And you struck me as a rational person when I read your comments in older posts.

    I understand the use of quotes is a way to mock Fighting Note and that the intent is to be humorous. I’m sure that you can agree with me many people who mock others this way use it as a thin veil to their true feelings.

    I mentioned the slippery slope earlier, and by that I don’t mean that I think it’s very likely that you’d degenerate into a hate-spewing troll, but I’m concerned that it would help enable others to do the same and try to up the ante. I think if we want the community to evolve in a good way, we should be vigilant about making sure we don’t accidentally encourage the development an opposite but equally obnoxious vocal group.

    Okay, I think I’ve said everything I can say about this. I don’t really feel like I’m trying to convince you of something specific, but I’d encourage everyone to be thoughtful of how their comments will be interpreted by readers and how it contributes to the gamer culture.

    Would be a lot of “not so funny” pic´s then ;) Many of times the girls have told aftwerwards what whas said. If a guy is mean to me, i save his “tag”, i dont start a map and put the whole conversation in it :) I promise- u dont need to say anything, just win a game, or loose or just get them aware of your sex- and u get some hate on the mail :) I bet many guys get some shit to, undeserved ;)
