Why can't I post hateful messages on your wall?
It might be worth thinking about encouraging direct confrontations between users while broad statements will be frowned upon. That will cause less ill will among the community in the long run because such expressions will be far less ambiguous and thus many users who were previously unsure will know that they were actually not targeted by someone else's statement. It also makes the job for the mod team easier because far less interpretation will be needed.
Like I said in the first paragraph, you will never be able to do away with it. But you'll have to find ways how to best deal with such situations. I don't think pushing in a direction that will make stealth attacks more prevalent does anyone any good.
If someone says "Rol is a hypocrite", then that will be far less troublesome than someone saying "I should have known that Nintendo fans are hypocrites". The former would give a user (in this case, me) an opportunity to defend himself against accusations while the latter potentially rallies up an entire fanbase which will predictably end in a much bigger confrontation.
And while I know that the mod team doesn't like it when users go at each other, such discussions can actually clear up misunderstandings between both parties and thus reduce the number of grudges that are held within the community.
Yes, that was long. But you locked my thread, so I had nothing else to do.
Why is it that when I post complete garbage, I get my thread locked, but others get to have their garbage go on for even hundreds of replies at times?
Seriously though, you're right in that "salty" is just another bullet in the chamber.
And group generalizations are definitely more toxic than someone calling out an individual, that much is for sure.
Aka, I agree with a lot that you said. Something to think about heading into the weekend for sure. Especially while I'm left to my own devices...
Hence our search for additional mods. :P
You have to be grateful that the community hasn't noticed yet.
Now the xbox community is practically non existent on this site and take it from someone who actually speaks to the xbox guys, they won't be coming back even for slades thread, I have to ask... Was it worth it? :/

There is way too much off topic discussion going on in this thread, from both sides of the aisle. This is about the PS4 hitting 50% marketshare, and your thoughts on it. People are allowed to share their views on the subject, whether they're congratulating the system or putting forth reasons why we've gotten to this point. That's the point of discussion, to discuss things. So the off topic...
