I can't believe I left before there was talk about Corson Hardware. I used to live round the corner from it when I first moved here, had to go there in the first couple of days of Scottish life, and...

Hello! Bit of a necro post, but what with the recent Steam sale and the (frankly, stunning) videos of Horizons starting to appear I figured we might see some RPSers who missed the boat first time...

I hadn't noticed this before! Best place in Edinburgh for gaming is the Games Hub on Lauriston Place. Check out the groupless gamers guild over on BGG here:...

Hello, stumbled on this completely out of the blue... I'm an RPSer in Scotland and would love to come along, but I'm unfortunately running a massive Netrunner tournament in Edinburgh on Sunday 13th...
No direct connection (no shared Dev or Publisher) from what I can see, but the game is a direct clone of Commandos with slightly nicer graphics :P. You get up to 6 heroes all with their own skills; a...
Jeez... just checked, you can get the game for ~£1 over there! Man, impossible not to recommend it at that price.
Yeah, it's... Less than ideal. There was some dev support over there a little while ago but it seems they have pretty much given up. I'm not even sure who is 'responsible' any more, whether it's the...
Yeah, using the magic of Paint! Had to copy a few bits multiple times when I chopped guards in half. Just goes to show even today a pre-drawn 2D background can still look fantastic. And if only IF...
I've been replaying Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive for the first time in quite a few years. I remembered enjoying it at the time, but it really is great fun! While 'Commandos in the Wild West'...

I'm not removing sex from the equation at all. I think sex is the tool that is used by some few as a way of exerting dominance over others.

Those are all options already available and, as we can see, it doesn't stop people shouting abuse into their mics or typing abusive PMs to people. Your solutions have all been to maintain the status...

I think throwing rape onto the spectrum of sexual behaviour is in fact a little insulting. I don't think it's like at the extreme end of sexual attraction there is 'I must have sex with this person...

Your 'solution' has been to put up with it. That isn't solving the problem.you've said your piece on thinking people should ignore this, and we've completely derailed the conversation on ways to stop...
Seriously, go check out Space Engine. It's basically a universe simulator (seriously, I am NOT exaggerating there!).
I've taken some brilliant shots of Earth...

It's a public order offence to abuse or threaten someone in such a way as they feel 'harassed, alarmed or distressed.'
05-06-2012, 09:37 PM
Actually, the fan would get arrested:
I certainly don't recall anyone ever being arrested for shouting...

People have argued the same applies at Football matches, they caught up in the heat of the game and they're just trying to psyche out the opposing players. And are you saying people who aren't White...

I laughed, then I remembered this:
This quote is the absolute highlight:
"Nothing ruins a...

What is the difference between 'real world' racism and people saying racist things online? If I say something racist to someone's face, I'll have to face the consequences, if I record it and send it...

What you're saying is, everyone else should shrug off abuse just as you do. It doesn't upset you, you don't see why it should harm anyone else. But that argument could be applied to any manner of...
Not sure if anyone has posted anything about this before, but I discovered Space Engine recently! Basically a combined mind-blowing and eye-candy-creating bit of software. Here are a few shots I...

As has been stated, this thread is about how to deal with abusers and harassment online. There are several different differences between schoolyard bullying and being abused online. For instance,...

I don't think that would happen at all; you could only mark each person down once, for instance, so even if you have a grudge against someone they're going to get one black mark and that's it. Marks...

Hello! You may remember me from such threads as the one b0rsuk linked to.
One suggestion I have seen is a 'black mark' system. If someone is abusive is some genuinely unpleasant way, you can log a...

This sums up the entire argument, honestly nothing else needs to be added (ironic I'm responding to a post about not adding things to the discussion...). Harassment happens online, and women are...
