Do you make it a point to report people using hate speech in GTA:O Lobbies?

Today I was in a lobby and a bunch of people were attacking (Verbally) this person that had a obvious accent from the Middle East. They were using every slur you could think of. So I made good use of the report button yes the person could have just left the lobby but there is no excuse for anyone using hate speech.
What do you do when you hear thing like this in lobbies?

If it's particularly annoying, I mute and report anyone I want to shut up as long as it's deserved.

No.

 

If I reported every racial slur then i'd spend 75% of the time reporting people. Plus how much does reporting actual do to begin with?

I find that people who resort to hate speech usually can't think of something to say on their own, they resort to racism thinking it will really buzz the person they're getting owned by.

 

Also no, reporting people is for tools.

Shame how most people who use these slurs are underage brats who know little to nothing about how much of an impact it has towards the society when they just spew racial slurs without knowing any meaning behind them. Most just do it in order to be edgy and fit in but I just mute/report them and continue with what I'm doing, I mean what else can you do in these type of situation. No matter where you go, racism still exists, sad but true

It's the Internet. It happens all the time.

If you mention you're a Jew they'll talk about how the holocaust is a good thing, for example.

I'd love some examples of this "hate speech" More than likely it was harmless. Political correctness ftl.


Also, reporting people.... :lol: .

I hear way more instances of Black people (my own friends included) using the word 'ni**er' than any other ethnic group. Also, those Brits are a right feisty bunch of c*nts. I'm pretty hateful myself, but in a way that no one should ever take seriously.

I was more referring to people who are in the midst of a sh*t talking...um...well a sh*t talking session I guess you could say, and they can't think of a comeback so they resort to racism.

It is harmless. You can mute.

Examples:

Black people: Go back to being slaves, you cotton-picking African n*****s.

Jewish: You should have died in the holocaust. Hitler is a hero because you're scum.

Christian/Catholic: How does it feel to be on Jesus' **** all day? Too gay for your homo arse?

Asians: Herro, I no speek engrosh. Haha, Chinese moron.

And on and on the warped cycle of internet anonymity spins. I still can't figure out to this day why anyone would take another person seriously on the internet. Especially if you're taking to that person for the first time ever in a game you two happen to be playing. The person knows nothing about you and is just lobbing hail mary's to get you going. Why feed into it? I see it happen all the time. Psychology ftl.

I take my fair share of insults as well, being Filipino and all.

Pretty sure the only people who don't get hate speech are white male Americans.

Also, anonymity turns people into pricks. Peeps need to know that.

If you know who they are and where they live, they'd shut the hell up.

Nope. You're being oversensitive. If the victim has a problem, they'll report it themself.

Yeah, he's just giving examples of what someone, with the intent of pissing someone else off, would say in any giving situation when presented with an obvious thing like an accent or speech pattern (I know, I know, 'r u sayin Black people have a certain accent') It's too easy. Makes me sad how easy it is to get someone to scream at you with some silly baseless accusations, but at least I'm not the weak-minded one.

I think White males know more about it than anyone. It's open season on white, heterosexual males with European ancestry. You literally aren't allowed to say anything, even if it's an honest criticism, or in good fun, about another race. I say f*ck that. I'm equal opportunity for everyone, even my own Italian greaseball ass.

As a white guy with no religion or real loyalty towards any specific political party, I rarely get offended. Outnumber me with your crew and use some pussy tactics, and you'll hear me rage. They don't know you, so laugh at them. Whenever someone tries to say something about my personal life, I'm like "hahahahahahahahahahaha!" because they are always wrong.

 

Becoming offended is exactly what they want.

Not WW2, but we strung that faccia brutta Mussolini up by his feet with the rest of his worthless family afterward. Business as usual.

No, because I'm not 12. I couldn't care less if someone is being racist on the internet as it has no impact on me.

I don't. People can say what they want I believe in freedom of speech plus you can always mute them. It's an 18+ game not pre school. I will on the other hand report people for modding the game with external software only if they are being a dick in a public lobby.

 

Why isn't that an option? The closest you can get is exploits. Not an exploit when it is straight up hacking.

Wow. I was kidding, dude, since you said equal opportunity.

What would I know anyway? We got invaded by Spain, US, and Japan and we didn't do jack about Spain colonizing us and calling as "indios" for 300 years or so.
