Cyber-Bullying /trash-talking
Hi there this is my first time posting on these forums? but I have become sick of the quality of players I have been getting matched with. The last game I played, a player who was Void fed, then began to trash talk and talked a lot of ♥♥♥♥ to myself, when I was playing reasonable, I had the best score on the team. The rest had zero kills with 3+ deaths except me. Pillmatico said some really nasty things, I would classify this as cyber-bullying which has become a real big deal lately in modern society. I think a person like this one should be banned for a few months or so, reporting just doesn't cut it. These kinds of people make the game not very enjoyable and if said to the wrong person could lead to perhaps someone taking their life.
Now my wish is to have this person's IP banned for 3 months, I can provide the match ID and his user etc. This can be the start of something great of positive teams without the noobs who spend half the game talking ♥♥♥♥ rather than playing.
Also the fact that he couldn't even speak very good English frustrated me even more, GET OFF ENGLISH SPEAKING SERVER MATE!
rant over!
Sincerely yours,
alexandrite

P.S. This is a legitimate request, not pranking, I am just sick and tired, and tempted to go back to single player

I agree, I feel that I am being Stalked some times. There are two players who have seem to have it out for me, all because I drvie a Prius and shop at Traders Joes. One of them is a man pretending to be a girl, he does this so players will have empathy for him because he is a terrible player, pretty sad. Anways I feel so victimized and scared by those two people that i just want to stop playing one of my favorite games ever, ive done it once before D: can someone please help me? T_T

this game has been reduced to low-life degenerates thinking they're decent bcuz they get a skeet or two every ten full games. that is why this game has died a long time ago. it sucks to be in your situation, but that's just how it is.

First time? I distinctly recall you trash-talking Left 4 Dead 1 here.

the real problem would be if it were that simpe to ban a player for so many months just by somene calls "grefing" ya run the bigger rish of also giving grefers the same power of having people band that had done nothing wrong. i guess a better way would be to flag a player "greafer" so that any game you are in, they do not have access too, therefor, the more people a person upsets, the more restricted access they have to join random games,

Demorec button with full audio available as a keybind overlay option for any game steam sells. Hit "demorec", give detailed description of issue along with the time on the video the incidences accured.

Elicit "notoriety points" for all that can be used by private server admins to set a "recommended level" for server interaction. steam can also setup "Holiday Times or Etc" to use said points to keep the trolls, greifers and cheaters off of official dedicated servers during times when strife is least needed.

That would also mean steam would have to come up with a high-quality server listing GUI so anyone can see who's playing along with other player/server vitals (any mods, noteriety point standing, tickrate, etc).

Will they do it?

Been told by others that's how the "Block all communication" works on your profile page. You simply block them and you should never run into them again in your gaming. Also means if you have a very long list going, expect to see an ever shrinking list of servers to play on. It doesn't always work, but it does help.

That's why gamers should always have a high-quality server browser that can show player names (among other server details) to see who's playing on what servers and when. That gives grieved players the chance to see if they might actually be in the mood to deal with any given griefer or the chance to enjoy the other gamers on a given server even if trouble is there. With a browser, you can give players the chance to simply turn off chat so they don't have to listen to those they despise when said player/s are around.

You are a little girl pretending to be a man.
Counter-productive to your issue when you act the same as you're treated

Find a way to avoid these people, ignore, block them, muting is the best choice. just make sure you know what kind of internet ♥♥♥ your against.
