Oops! When I saw the topic of this thread (Hearts Freezing) I thought it was about jilted lovers or something like that!!! Anyway, there are as many reasons for a computer to freeze as there are programs that you can install on that computer, and options that can be selected for installing or runnin...

...And the BEAUTY of it is that no one else would be affected by any other player's sensibilities! If I have no problem with ANY words, then I could choose NOT to activate a filter. If I have a problem with the letter "e", then I could choose to have EVERY word with the letter "e" in it blocked! Wha...

Re: Suggestion

Now, THERE'S a suggestion that should work for EVERYONE!!! 8)

Well, Luna, it goes BOTH ways!!! When playing, I try to "beat the crap outta" my opps, BUT I also expect THEM to to their DARNEDEST to "beat the crap outta" ME as well!

After all, how ELSE can we have good, fun, competitive games! 8)

I have seen a number of people over the years complaining about the language used, and the fact that there seems to be no way that they can avoid it. Putting someone on "iggy" is sorta locking the barn door after.... What I would like to see in some of these posts is, rather than just complaints abo...

...Etiquette??? "Oh, excuse me! I'll just take that nasty QoS for you!" "Would you like the JoD?" Hey! When I'm playing a game, I try to be COURTEOUS and POLITE in any chat with other players, but when it comes to the actual PLAYING I am in the game to WIN!!! Otherwise, I would NOT be PLAYING!!! And...

It's hard to even IMAGINE how difficult it would be to construct the "perfect" language filter!!! You talk about the filter not being STRONG enough? ...Well, in some instances it is TOO strong! ...Just try talking about the department store chain Kmart in chat!!! It will NOT ALLOW you to say the nam...

...Guys, when is everyone gonna GET the simple fact that NOT EVERYONE IS AT THE SAME SKILL LEVEL??? When I started playing Hearts - and for quite a while afterwards - I played the game purely from a single-minded point of view to avoid taking any points that I did not have to, and getting RID of poi...

Is "set em P" table talk?? DEFINITELY!!! Since it is a basic goal of the hand, WHY would a player feel the need to make this comment if it were not intended to be some sort of indicator to his partner as to how he wants the hand played??? Think about it. You are sitting there with a hand that MIGHT...

...The BIG problem that I had with the OLD way of kicking was NOT so much that a vote could be called at any time for any reason, but that if a person were AFK for any reason the server would automatically vote "Yes" for him. A LOT of people got kicked this way. I recall more than once having left t...

when a player is kicked/banned from table, program could automaticly report the problem player so SCE could deal with them... And what of the players who arent actually a problem player? They are "flagged automatically" because of an honor system that is used by dishonorable people. Unfortunately u...

Yup! Banning a player from a game is a pretty individual thing! SOME peeps think that it should not be allowed under ANY circumstances, while others take a much more liberal view. MY take on kicking or banning a player from a game? DURING a game, I will try everything else before resorting to kickin...

Like Vidurr said, a Guide cannot be expected to act on information that is not available to him. Just because ONE person says that something went down a certain way does not make it so. After all, presumably THREE people had to have agreed for that person to have been kicked or banned from the game....
