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.'

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:

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...

Just because other abuse happens online doesn't mean we shouldn't do something about it! You could argue that females are the largest marginalised group online, so tackling that will inevitably makes...

I don't buy the argument that people being naked 'annoys' others; hopefully no-one is about to bring up breast feeding... Anyway, many types of animals partner for life and manage to spend most of...

Beat me to it here. Fact remains, people who are fully dressed in 'safe' environments are sexually assaulted; what was it they were doing 'wrong'?
I honestly can't believe we're still...

Suggesting women should expect to be r***d based on what they wear is an incredibly sexist thing to say, and is typical slut-shaming. Attitudes like that are part of the problem.

Okay, I can see your point. When I'm with friends, people I know very well, it is okay to toy with stereotypes (though you do have to be careful even then, people can be hurt by your comments but be...

Have a listen to the radio program linked in the same article:
Very interesting comment from one defender of the 'right to say whatever they want' on...
Okay, I know it's a fairly standard shooter at best, but I'm actually having some good fun playing through the co-op. It's something to fill my time with before Max Payne drops next week!

I guess that was my main complaint. I *personally* felt this was a trap Skyrim didn't fall into, but judging from some other comments, maybe that's not a universal feeling.
On the whole, I don't...

I must admit, the Elder Scrolls lore has always left me completely dry. I'm sure there's a wonderfully realised world in there, but I really have little interest in taking a fictional history lesson!...
