Agreed, Pirate. So something proactive, don't be so namby-pamby. After all, freezers r hackers, n they won't stop their hacking.
So, if the Admins have proof that users have frozen a site(s); code block their PS3.
If Admins have Chat Log proof of a user admitting to freezing, hacking, selling accounts w/ merged outfits, or teaching others to freeze; code block their PS3.
The Hacker/Abuser War Cry : I have (insert # of accounts), I have (insert # of PS3's). Call their bluff; At least give them Serious Incentive to stay clean when they buy their new PS3.
The problem is there are mods in cahoots with known freezers and I have proof of it.
This isnt going to go away until people wind up boycotting Home, or start a massive letter writing campaign to Sony Corporate itself because censorship is the order of the day in these forums.
i always feel slightly flattered when some one freezes me, they took all that effort just to make me have to reset my playstation (most the freezes make them have to too lol)i personally think its pointless, when fams are "waring" a freeze dont prove anything, its just annoying, and lol as for ennlightenment, fam is short for family, or clans, normally ppl consider familys are more or less friends that feel they are really close, clans groups of ppl trying to do somthing or anorther, as for wars, no clue anyfights i have been in have been about personal things with ppl that we used to know that cant seem to just fade away, but then again theres a bunch of ppl that just do it for little reason at all, some ppl do it just to get the name of there family out there, guess its a rep thing, its more or less they have little power in real life so they try to get as much as they can on home
Spidey : Fams r for the most part, just Gangs on Home. What, maybe 70% to 80% ? They r abusive, racist, extremely vulgar users. They spam the Chat Logs w/their Fam Spam Banners. They War on each other, and have ranks like Warlords, Generals, etc.
The Gang/Fam Wars used to consist of Roasts (vulgar, racist, n very offensive juvenile repartee). Now they BUY merged outfit accounts, and Freeze each other (No Loss) and unfortunatley, they Freeze a lot of good users just trying to have fun. They have taken over Godfathers2 completely. Lots of times, they ruin the Hub, Playground, Siren Lounge, Motorstorm, SingStar, The Star Wars Cantina, n Hudson.
They "War". because they r juvenile, criminal, gangsta wannabees.
I agree with Lil they definitely need to code block because banning is a joke and they laugh about it because it has no effect on them whatsoever. And I am sure it will get around that Home is serious about getting rid of the bad apples! Then maybe just maybe Home will be ripe again meaning people will be able to enjoy it
Banning is totally innefective for one reason, its rarely if ever applied. I'm on home fairly regular and often see the same abusive people on every day continuing their antics knowing they won't face consequences. It's as much a failure of moderation as it is the people actively causing trouble for the rest of us. As we've all seen with the censorship applied to this thread it's far more likely those of us speaking out will face the wrath of the mods than those causing trouble.
I freeze all the time like I'll go to change outfits and I'll freeze then I'll turn off my system try to log bk into home then wait 30 min for my hdd to be repaired this is been going on for over a month IM SO OVER IT I PAY MY HARD EARNED MONEY TO PS3 Sony and home to get a freeze it needs to be stopped who do I need to speak with who's the big boss over home I want his number and name I've had geek squad to my house they have looked at everything and stated it was homes fault fix it even if u need to shut home down for a few days but I'm fed up
You mean this little guy actually came to your house and said..."Its Sony Fault" ?
I would have rewarded him with a cookie and a popcicle and called Sony and said little Timmy even knows who'se to blame !
