Someone should really tell those people living in the third-world countries to really suck it up and stop whining. The people in the comfortable, developed nations have bigger problems to deal with..like the "psychological consequental effects" of trolls over the internet.

 

We sure have it hard, guys ... Now if you'll excuse me. I have to put my feet up in on my ottoman in my warm house (thats electric powered) and eat some FDA-inspected (thank god, I'm not eating poison) cookies while using a computer that can access the internet whilst being able to read and safe from people trying to kill me and take my belongings due to the police force in my town. Y'know.. the  same things that apparently all people have around the world..

I'm sure these kids are worried about trolls making fun of their house being destroyed on the internet right now


It's called cyberbu//ying. Get it right.

Re: PS Home Creeps

i use female and male avatars, and i even use "I'm Really A Dude" over my female avatars head, (by way of my clubs name) and they still try to talk to me. even being honest with them that i'm really a guy doesn't matter...they ARE that hard up over pixels.

 

which brings me to...i think there is some disconnect with some people who can't tell the difference between online personas and real life. some guys, all they see is that female avatar and it gets them riled up. i remember asking a guy does he go to the mall and walk up to girls in real life, and ask for their names and phone numbers to perhaps go out on a date instead of chasing around avatars on an online social game...he replied no of course. i was like, well at least in real life you can actually make human contact. which it seems social media has made some people more comfortable to be idiots and socially inept. 

 

i usually block/ignore them or try going to another server. i don't engage in any conversation, and usually when they get no attention, period, they eventually move on. creeps and trolls crave attention. just don't give in to them. them taking pictures of your avatar is just that, it's your avatar. when i notice someone taking a pic of my avatar, i usually have fun with it and see how desperate they are for that picture. which is why i love LMO's. the booster ones where they are way faster than regular avatars, the "creepers" i've encountered are usually new users (assuming) and they rather not waste time trying to chase me. it's kinda fun seeing them that desperate for a picture.

 

not saying anyone should do what i do, it is truly best to ignore them, but i'm the type that doesn't take Home seriously so...

hope all works out for you and try to enjoy Home as much as you can. no matter what, there will always be trolls and creepers.

life is short, don't take too much of what goes on in Home too seriously.

 

good luck.

This is great funny topic, LoL!!! I guess maybe because I've been around this so long, it doesn't bother me. As long as their not using vulgar and degrading language towards me, I'm cool with it. I'll even pose for a pic if you ask, LoL! I do sometimes wonder what they are doing with those pics tho, LMBO!!!

Tranny would ponder a guess as to what some of those people do with such pics but that would result in a deleted post as well as a possible warning from a forum moderator.
