Actually, even though this is probably just a summer thing I worry that these "new bad boys" will take what they see as what gangs do and apply them in Home.  Hate crimes, bullying, harassment-- not to say that doesn't go on already but think about the intensity it could be raised to "as a gang."  Also not saying that all gangs or groups on home are aiming to be a negative group.


Virtual never ventures too far from reality.

                                                   Honestly guys.. There are actual 'families' and 'groups' on Home that try to make a difference.. They host fun parties, fun events, help with the community (kinda like HCVs), and report offenders.. It sadly only takes a couple bad apples to make everyone doubt the whole box.. It all breaks down to simple logic: A large majority of people now-a-days, especially the 'young' generation, lack personal responsibility for their actions. Also, people think that there is this security blanket of being anonymous because its the internet. So that allows them to do whatever, whenever because 'noone truly knows its me'.. So, to them, its acceptable to be complete morons and abuse people on Home. Also, no offense to Sony, because I know the situation, but there seems to be a 'ball drop' effect going on. These people do this stuff in large masses because, well, its harder to ban the entire group. They can just turn around and make another name.. Bam! Back at it in 10 minutes. As a person who used to frequent The Godfather 2 Lounge, its a complete circus there now. Yet, if Sony were to remove it, it would just spread to Club Fight Night, Singstar, Playground, etc..

                                                    I also promise, once the summer is over, it wont stop. These are grown adults leading these people, some groups include minors, to do these activities.. I cant believe that that is not some form of abuse.. With the rise in teenagers killing themselves over being bullied on the internet, we as a community need to step up. I've reported many offenders multiple times, to no avail. I've been attacked repeatidly by certain groups of people. With extreme threats of violence like slamming my head into a sidewalk. Thank goodness I happen to be thick skinned. I think once we all band together and report these people, it will make Home a little quieter.. Make it known that every time they come back, they'll get it.. Maybe it will stop

Most appreciated, polo... and Max - Homelings are not a gang. We do not engage in gang-like activities nor do we harass or abuse others. We do not express who impresses us and who does not, and we definitely do not bash other groups or individuals in the forums.

This is really nothing new. Its been going on for a while now but it has only really started to become noticable since school ended.
