Sexual HarassmentOkay. I get it.
Some girls don't like getting "attention" from guys in game. I mean, nobody would want that kind of harassment from random, anonymous internet guys.
But honestly, can you really say you're surprised?
Yeah, it sucks, but some online guys being perverts isn't exactly stop the presses kind of news.
So, when you choose to enter an environment that you know is populated with such guys at all times, you're opening yourself to that kind of behavior.
Is it fair? Not really.
Is life fair? Not really.
Is [GM]Dave fair? If you don't know the answer to this, welcome to the blog.
It just gets on my damned nerves everytime I have to answer a GM call from yet another girl who's upset over attention she didn't want and acting like this never ever happens.
THIS IS NOT NEWS!
Every single player, both male and female, knows that girls sometimes get the wrong kind of attention in game. Everybody.
Hell, I know guys with female mules that have gotten hit on.
One time, I even started sending tells to the other guy who was harassing a male LS member.
[GM]Dave>> Why are you messaging my friend?
Pervert>> I was just looking for sum butt secks.
[GM]Dave>> Do you want to hear the definition of irony?
This stuff just happens. It's just there. It's life.
So, when you send me GM calls about this crap, you really shouldn't expect sympathy.
Not that you should ever expect sympathy from me.
Just this afternoon, I got another one of these stupid calls.
GM Call Description: Female player being sexually harassed.
Maybe I'll get lucky and the servers will explode.
[GM]Dave>> Hello, Adventurer, yada yada yada.
[GM]Dave>> What's up?
Player>> Some guy just started sending me dirty messages.
[GM]Dave>> Were they any good?
Player>> What do you mean?
[GM]Dave>> Were they hot?
Player>> Not really.
Player>> Don't you want to know his name?
[GM]Dave>> Not really.
[GM]Dave>> I don't swing that way.
Player>> I mean so you can punish him.
[GM]Dave>> That's disgusting.
Player>> Dammit, I want you to punish him.
[GM]Dave>> Are you coming on to me?
[GM]Dave>> I put on my robe and wizard hat...
Player>> Aren't you going to do something?
[GM]Dave>> What do you want me to do?
[GM]Dave>> Bow chikka wow wow
Player>> Oh god...
[GM]Dave>> I'm in your area, but I can't seem to locate you.
Player>> I'm near the AH.
[GM]Dave>> Too many people.
[GM]Dave>> What are you wearing?
Player>> Uh... my White Mage AF gear...
[GM]Dave>> Oh yeah, baby.
[GM]Dave>> Damn, that's hot.
Player>> This is sick.
Player>> I'm leaving.
[GM]Dave>> Oh. It's like that, is it?
[GM]Dave>> Seduce the innocent GM and then leave him.
Player>> What the hell are you talking about?
[GM]Dave>> It's too late.
[GM]Dave>> Just go.
Player>> You need help.
[GM]Dave>> Is that an offer?
[GM]Dave>> Bow chikka wow wow
Your tell could not be received. The player has logged out, cancelled her content IDs, uninstalled the game, and is right now smashing her modem with a ball-peen hammer.
Seriously. You can't go out in the rain and then complain about getting wet.
Use your blacklist, tell him you're really a guy, do something.
Just don't call me.
