Re: PS Home Creeps

I have always found the notion of someone taking a picture of pixelated avatars to be perceived as offensive, an absolutely rediculous idea.

People take pics of my avatar.
Okay, who cares.

It is legal to take, pictures of REAL PEOPLE, in public places, without their permission.

Have people lost a sense of reality?

You are NOT your avatar.
You do not own the design or content that constitutes your avatar. The respective developers do.

Sony has decided to incorporate this option in the Home UI. Sony has decided this option, and the free use of is acceptable.

If you don't want your avatar's pixels collected, hide in private spaces.

Beyond this, if someone in Home says something you find, offensive, block and mute them (poof, problem gone).

Report when warranted.
Rinse, repeat.

Done.

If only this were true. All you have to do to attract a creep's attention is be female -- or in some cases, male.

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.

No matter what else that may be said or not said in this thread, I am glad that troll who likes to Pm girls and call them bad names seems to be out of the bowling alley now.

Creeps definitely come in both genders. I have had a few female avatars come up behind mine and snap pictures and that's just the ones i know about (afk a lot).  I have also tried making an avatar of a young looking boy to avoid being bothered by girls when i am trying to get something done and had a male avatar come up behind me and snap a pic. I was grossed out by it, but totally busted up laughing because i didn't  really expect it. Should have expected it, this is the internets after all and it's where the creeps reside. 

 

Back to being my normal avatar now as the attention of females is much more preferable. I just ignore everyone anyways...

That's the reason I do it... but also because I don't enjoy staring at my own manass all the time. Smiley Tongue

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Creeps are not always attracted by skimpy clothing. I've had many creeps bother me and I don't dress that way.

I don't dress provactively (unless you count tame dresses, free t-shirts and jeans, as provocative. And I get actually, legitimately creepy guys hit on me all the time. I''ve had inappropriate comments made about my "sexy ice cream outfit" and in that outfit I'm literally a giant cup of chocolate ice cream. http://cdn.alphazone4.com/l/d3d5c2cf4257c719098ed31eaf704df2.png <--- How is that sexy? 

 

That being said, if you are getting a lot of pictures of your avatar it just means you've designed it well. I've shown people pics of  funny avatars like some chick that was a minecraft looking character, or this giant one eyed puff thingy that looked like it belonged in a ghostbuster's movie. I don't see how that's a problem. If I were to go to a park and take pictures of the scenery, nobody would call that creepy even if they winded up in the shot. If I took a pic of a cop, none would call that creepy. So why should that arbitrary rule apply to home.

 

Now if the guy is crouching down attempting to get an upskirt or something, that's different. But just going around randomly snapping screenshots isn't necessairly creepy.

 

As for cyber bullying, yes, that's a real issue. And people have died because of it. But I don't really see how it applies to this thread, since the case of it being any form of harassment whatsoever is dubious at best.
