Donald Trumps's new show
I hate bans. I hate it when cigarettes are banned from my bars. I hate it when certain tv shows are banned (like Family Guy). But I especially hate bans involving games. I always thought games were a place to unwind and goof off - and not yet another place to act all priss and proper and be a goodie two shoes.
So that's why I decided to go in Chemical X the other tonight and unwind with a bunch of the pubbers. Instead of using my usual handle (Flounder) I called myself "a quiet monkey's rectum." When the humor in that failed to last into it's fourth hour, I added an extra bonus: each time I killed someone I would say
"YOU'VE BEEN RECTUMIZED!"
I binded it to my mouse2 key. And I used it for about 3 maps. I even commed one map saying it a bunch of times. Yeah, people got annoyed, but no one said, "stop or I'll ban you last warning." Instead, the admin waited until I was the team's only Onos and when I was attacking an important phase gate he permanently banned me. Yeah, I was a jerk - but permanent ban without warning?
SDJASON got banned from the server too for some silly thing, plus he got banned from these forums without warning or explaination. Why go around banning everyone? Are we trying to not make friends? And while I'm ranting - I hate getting kicked and banned from Voogru and G4B2S for things like recycling the base of a spawn camped team, or complaining about the horrible custom maps. I even donated to Voogru but they still banned me for recycling a loss.
I think the power of ban gets to people's heads. We should be men about these situations and confront someone about their behavior rather than conveniently banning them. Bans are lame, pure and simple. And that's my rant. I'm sure I'll get banned for it.
