Political Bullying in Lobby

Post by kirkwoodcruiser »

Aidan--I have raised this issue before without success. Do we have to continue to be exposed to HowCools nasty, constant political comments and bullying. Every time he comes in the lobby when I am there he makes some nasty, baiting comment. When people pay a subscription fee for an app don't they have the right to expect to just play the game without being harassed about politics? The irony is that he assumes what my political views are when he doesn't have a clue (see his nasty, snide comment above). His bullying drove Iceman from the game and probably others as well. Maybe I'm the only one who is bothered about this, but you seem to care about developing a quality product and not some hearts-related arm of twitter or Facebook.

I will probably have to implement a block feature in the lobby sometime.

So to all who abuse, please don't force me to.

Pot, meet Kettle. Quitwood sure does have a short memory it appears. HE WAS THE LOUDEST voice amongst the Trump haters, hurling insults ad nauseum. And claiming I chased-off Icee is anything but true. Surely he can post a link to prove such ridiculous assertions. Quitwood insults players routinely during games, calling them "idiots", "morons", "S**tty players"...usually just before he quits, hence his richly earned nickname by the preponderance of players on the platform. My playful banter during games adds to the social interaction and isn't done with malice as he so claims. What Quitwood hates is being reminded of how he earned his nickname and why I and others refuse to play with him. He's the people who condone "cancel culture" simply because we think differently. Pray for him folks.

You can now restrict players chats and invites in the lobby - see the menu in the game.

I'm sure this is going to cause problems also but let's see how things go.

Sounds great, but where in the menu options? I don't see anything that allows that.

Where is the button to ensure serial quitters get banned for quitting games? Asking for a friend.
