- I did this once and the game was already a miserable ruin by then.
- 4 others pounding insults in large amounts is akin to spamming and actually was so bad I noticed it started to slow the game, that is where I got the idea.
- I don't mind if others want to go 4v1 or 5v1 - I'll take it but let's just play!
- They made the game miserable for the player who left and at first for myself. They spoofed names (don't think I mentioned that) and it eventually became clear that the only goal was to get me to quit. So having invested that much time so far I figured I'd turn tables. I could not induce the timer so I chose other means and eventually they all RQ'd.
Not my idea of a good game but nor do I find ruining a game on purpose, taunting, insulting folks, spoofing names and having fun doing so. All I did was make it not so fun for those who had already made it no fun at all. Of course if I pulled that kinda spam buffer move in a normal game with the best of friends I would not have many left. I am not encouraging anyone to use such tactics, I just wanted to play a game that night and decided I was not going to quit for a bunch of assholes. It was very playground stuff all in all - but maybe they will think twice next time; or better yet maybe they will just come on in and play!
I was using this antic-dote in response to Drs. list of proposed rules. Every rule conceivable has an exception and the more you have the less they are valued.
An Admin kicking someone for a commonly understood no no is the current standard and I support that. Banning someone is nearly impossible sans one method I can think of but that probably belongs in a tech forum.

Pretty much your own fault if you take an insult personally, best to either ignore the insults or avoid egging the insulter on.
Not related to insults, but I think enough instances of intentional spamming should be a bannable offense (looking at you mr XB-70, though many others do it as well). Doing it once or twice (whether intentional or by accident) is not a big deal, but if your going to get butt hurt and try to ruin the game by spamming, then you should not be able to play on the server anymore. (typing a period over and over again in chat can get incredibly annoying, same goes for saying fuck repeatedly, etc)
