There is something called ratings abuse, and what this guy has been doing for years fits completely in this cathegory unless you prove me wrong.


I'm not so sure.. i believe some would be amused, even like getting a 1 rating from a cheeky, rebellious, devil-may-care friend; some would not care at all and some would range from irritation to fury.
I realise you fall into my girlfriend's category of fury. i tell her to try to see it it from my perspective too but to her, as with you, the mirror seems only to make it even larger.


maybe because you know this guy and I don't. Anyway if everyone does this the rating system makes even less sense, so no need to encourage this behaviour.

I haven't spoken to DaGip for a few years now but again, i'm not so sure we should not encourage such behaviours. I think latitude for a sense of fun is more important than the seriousness of whether or not we are rated high in what is, as you intimate, mainly an arbitrary and unhelpful rating system. I think he may even be trying to help you rid yourselves of the shackles of the need for social approval.

Perhaps the accused, far from seeing his actions as an abuse, perceives this to in fact be the best use of the rating system.

In a gaming site, i would venture that it is sometimes important to have a little laugh and enjoy a moments verbal philandering. I imagine that, in this false world of relative anonymity, we could choose to exist in an alternate reality of escape rather than one which mirrors the guilt, fear and conservatism of our genuine struggle outside.

Just imagine, if my girlfriend could enjoy my verve for all things fruity, she could eat even more chocolates and see them as a banker for even greater attractiveness. Guilt-free, fun-packed avoidance of the narrow, ever-moving glare of cultural scrutiny.
Power to the people!

Again, you don't have a point. If a CC friend gives me 1s to poke the bear I could find it funny and start some banter and all.
If a random person in the street looks at your girlfriend and tells he she has a "phat arse" I think there's even less chances that she could take it the right way. I don't have the relationship with dagip you have with your gf. If that person keeps on calling names to all random people in the street you might ask him what is wrong with him.

I didn't see a single comment of someone finding this funny on his wall; he's been annoying many people with his behaviour. I guess he's been doing the same thing in forums for getting permabanned from them. There is just no excuse, it's just a sore player behaviour to give 1s to everyone. Some other players have been permabanned from the site for doing so, why would the rule be any different for this guy?

Betiko, I know what you are saying, and I get your points. I don't think jiminski disagrees with what you are saying, however b/c DaGip cannot post, he is making an effort so that it isn't a one-sided broadside. Quite noble of him actually 8-) . On the other hand you two have been quite civil so I'm just pointing out what I think. =D>

Did you even try clicking the link? Clearly, you didn't...


And of course I didn't click on the link...if I think porn is offensive I am not going to click on it to see if it works!


That's the video btw.

If it was really porn, someone would have figured it out already, and it wouldn't be in his sig.

He's guested because he's been forum-banned for years. But he can still play games, obviously.

Being that this is actually his first time to be reported for ratings abuse, he has been given a ratings warning. Serbia is correct with regards to him being guested.
