I've been playing GTA:O today for about 2 hours and changed lobbies multiple times.
The thing I probably hate the most Online, apart from tanks, glitchers, griefers and contacts calling me to do their missions for them, is probably random mafia messages. First off, I'm probably gonna get bashed for this as GtaForums has a big mafia background, having multiple families and all.

Who cares about mafias. I'll give it to some of them where they have fancy black cars and suits but the concept of a Mafia in game is dumb. The whole idea of having ranks is dumb. Anyone who manages a crew like North Korea is dumb. Crews in GTA:O should be run like this:

Guy that creates Crew, manages everyone.
Staff, those that keep things and members in order.
Rest of people.

But people seem to think it works like this:
Guy that creates Crew, manages everyone.
Staff, thinks they're better than the newbs.
Newbs, wanting to get higher level in the Crew by kissing ass or being tough guy.

Mafias seem to work like this:
Guy that creates mafia family who later leaves and lets some guy in charger that everyone hates.
Bodyguards for the guy that created the mafia.
Bunch of capos or whatever they're called have some sort of status.
Goons, they do the boring work for those capos or whatever they're called.

Granted, I wouldn't mind the mafia concept at all, it's roleplay and I actually enjoy roleplaying and I don't even interact with family/mafia members on here so I'm totally cool with them but it's those DAMN FREEROAM IDIOTS THAT KEEP SENDING ME RANDOM MESSAGES I HATE.

Message from stupid mafia gamertag:
Just want to let you know the Balony family just beat the butterbread family in a 1vs1, bringing our score 4 for us and zappo for them, the losers.

Or the stupid:
The Gaylord family has sent a hitman after you, Tony Montana sends his regards.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that responds to each of these messages with "no gives a f*ck".

As I'm f*cking typing this some -name here that I removed for safety- H Capone sent me this:
Capone Crime Family is recruiting If you want to join must be 13 and older to join and have to change your gamer tag so if you want to join message -name here- A Capone or -name here- R Capone or me

13 or older? Change gamertag? So mafias have Toys 'R Us clients now?!
That whole gamertag thing is crap, too. Spend 800 microsoft points or whatever the amount in money is so you can be part of a dumb stupid mafia family (the whole gamertag clan thing is also dumb) and kiss ass to some pretentious asshole that's full of himself because he's got guys licking his balls on a damn console.

Yes, OP is raging/mad.
I don't give a crap. I'm honestly tired of this sh*t. I'm going to block all these f*ckers that message me and I'll have no messages coming in when I play on the Xbox 360 in 2036.

tl;dr
Mafia/Clan gamertags, messages and recruiting via freeroam lobbies is retarded. Stop it.

*edit*
Some of you have not encountered these.
Just keep joining a public game that has people killing each other over and over.
If they have Don or some italian name in their gamertag, chances are they're not real italians and are in a family.

Having a mafia member from GtaF to comment on the 1vs1/scoring messaging-randoms thing would be great.
Why do families want to let random players know their status when most players don't care about that stuff?

I like to play as a cop but I don't send my traffic stop victims a message saying, "send me $100 in the next 2 minutes or I'll chase you".

I don't want to pay anyone sh*t. Is this mafia messaging really a thing? I'm seriously tired of knowing each families score.

Hell, I don't even know in the lobby who the hell is in a mafia which means I had NO interaction with them. I'm just in the Recent Players list. What gives?

I haven't got much if this but it is lame. People role playing with each other is one thing but attempting to make everyone be involved and telling strangers your strangers about your awesome exploits is too far. I was getting someone I didn't know send me a message with their crew name everytime they won a race or anything. I still don't know why they thought id possibly care or who they were.

I don't quite understand the point of the msgs, but it would be pretty cool if you and your friends dressed up in suits, and someone drives you around in a limo, don't you think?

That's what the point of my thread is. I honestly would not care if I wouldn't receive a message from a family every time I played in public lobbies. I think the idea of families, crews and clans is good and I wanted to be in one of those 3 with real members for a long time but anyone doing so much publicity is just annoying.

So PS3 got no one messaging them.
How about Xbox 360, anyone here get these messages?

@Insert: I'm just currently pissed. I'll forget about this tomorrow, no worries. I also wouldn't be surprised if this got a lock. Spur of the moment thing. :p

i've never experienced, nor even heard of such a thing. is it an xbox phenomenon?

bragging of exploits would be both strange and annoying, but i must admit that i would laugh if the gaylord family sent a hitman after me...

I've never received any message like that on xbox. It would make me laugh at first. Then I would just hunt them down to show them who the real Don is.

Roleplay? So in real life, mobsters go around bragging about their recent killings?

 

Every time I get this message, I just reply and tell them to go outside or something.

I get them on 360 quite alot, quite annoying really.  If it's not "The Spaghetti Crime Family is recruiting" messages it's "Soandso was assassinated by dumbass." 

 

It's a problem that's been going on since the early days of IV.   They have their heads so far up their own asses that they develop a false sense of mafia superiority and unfortunately a lot of young folks who otherwise wouldn't have been down with it take up the same mentality, much to the dismay of mentally stable gamers.   The same can also be said of many  MCs too the members of which have clearly jerked off over one too many episodes of Sons of Anarchy and seem to think it's cool to kill randoms then spam the lobby with assassination messages, sometimes not even taking the effort of killing anyone at all, just claiming that they did.

 

So just so everyone else knows who to look out for (for the 360 anyway) here are some of the main crews who started and continue the trend of assassinations.

I already bitched about this a little bit in the bitch and moan topic. I completely agree with you, its lame.

edit: maybe I'd have a little more respect for it if there was a picture to go along with this killing. At least that takes a little bit more skill.

Yup, those message make me laugh. MC crews too. I understand roleplaying and that's fine, but losers that actually want people to pay $10 just to suck their dick, and likely get killed by crew members anyway is sad.

 

All these fake names they come up with are hilarious as well.. "Don Panini" or "Don Tonelli" 

 

Just joking, we have acknowledged your threat, and Don Cappuccino and Mama Croissant are sending me and the rest of the Colazione Family after ya.

I usually get texts along the lines of "fck u", "ur a cheater", "why u kill me?" and, "leave my tank alone". Okay so I embellished the last one but I've never got a recruiting text or ever seen a make believe mafia crew. Crews are just not interesting to me for some reason, probably because there's so many.
