Bad parenting for generations. From like the 1940s onwards.

Each generation doubles down and raises a bunch of even bigger crybaby douchebags.

I am saying we get fewer mulligans.

They generally get between 40 and 105. We get 1 or 2.
It's also extremely political. It reminds me of the famous Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde & Tim Pool debate on Joe Rogan's podcast. People will label me as a bigot but the reality is, I don't think a Muslim should have to conform to woke ideology, and conversely, I don't think a woke person should have to conform to Muslim ideology. I would be as equally offended if my trans friend got banned from this game because their world view offended someone's religion as I would be if my Muslim friend got banned from this game because their religion forbids them from going against their faith to appease said woke people.

Also a lot of this stuff isn't really even enforceable either. Some of the best drama we've ever had on EverQuest, and even on P99, are instances where someone lied about their gender IRL.

https://www.reddit.com/r/project1999..._dying_and_it/

This is just one example. I remember the Asian dude who lied about being a hot chick when P99 first launched to scam dudes out of items and free PL services.

Like is P99 going to start requiring a form of ID so we can verify gender identities? Perhaps they should require you to state your gender identity when you create your account that way your character name can appear a certain color.

But I also wonder how this simulator was able to survive for 10 years without these policies? I wonder even more so, how EQ TLPs, which people pay to play on, consist of some of the most heated political debates that take place all hours of the day, and yet people don't get banned?

It blows my mind that it's easier to get banned from P99 than it is WoW in 2024. If the rules had always been this over-the-top and care bear, it would be different, but bait and switching after people spent years of their life building characters is whack. The only people who disagree are the people whose ideals are aligned with the current clearly partisan rule sets.

It comes off more as a desire to control people than it does a push for actual social justice. And quite frankly, it's weird to see these changes happening now, rather than 5 years ago, given the current atmosphere and the fact that censorship of conservatives is becoming increasingly unpopular and less common.

So let me get this right...someone pretended to be three people and your upset someone was dumb enough to go along with it.


Lots of dumb guilds and guild leaders and fake friends on green.

Boring.

The "I'm new I swear" guy goes on a rant bashing the staff, including referencing how things were on the server years ago. What a surprise.

Based on the tenor of this comment I bet he totally wasn't banned for being racist and/or spewing insults/ignorant shit at people
