KICK AND BAN BE REMOVED

Post by BlueidLady » Wed Nov 14, 2007 11:23 pm

MISUSE of the kick / ban Button------to use for a STALKING /STALLING OR STUCK PLAYER would be ok.
But to use it for a FEEDING FRENZY is TOTALLY WRONG. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS.----

LETS LOOK AT THIS ANOTHER WAY---------------

THE KICK / BAN---BUTTON-WITH OPTIONS------------
STALKING
OR
STALLING
OR
STUCK

NOT BECAUSE OF THE THE PLAYER MAY BE COMPETITION

THEN LET THIS BUTTON NOTIFY A GUIDE OR SEND A MESSAGE TO SOMEONE-DO LIKE THE TELEPHONE COMPANY --KEEP A LIST OF THE TIME AND DATE OF STALKERS----

THIS SHOULD BE THE ONLY REASON THEY ARE ALLOWED TO KICK AND BAN A PLAYER----THERE IS A FAIRER WAY TO TAKE CARE OF THIS.


AND HONESTLY--I'M HERE TO PLAY---------I SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO JOIN ANY GAME --AS LONG AS MY RATING PERMITS-------

OH I GOT IT---- IT'S A CLUB FOR THOSE WHO USE ((( IM'S))) RIGHT OR IS THIS SUPPOSE TO BE AS FAIR AS POSSIBLE FOR ALL????


ALL I'M SAYING IS THIS NEEDS TO BE ----REVISED TO WHERE IS FAIR FOR ALL--------THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY-------

we all have the right to play with those we wish to play with.

before kick/ban host option, there was a huge problem with stalkers,
those that would insist on causing one problem, and refuse to leave
tables when asked.. if host would leave table to set anothe, stalker
would follow until host would leave to get another nic.. then sometime
this same stalker would do the same thing. alot of players, including
myself complained abpout this for a long time before sce finally acted.

I reserve the right to choose my partner, so do my opponnents,
and the only opponents I kick/ban are players, whom regardless
of rank, have caused problems in other games i've been in.

as for the "FEEDING FRENZY", yea, I've seen it too,
and it pisses me off as well that it allowed..

But the next time those 'Sharks' join a table I set, and they usually
do, they get exactly the same treatment, they've given me.

Sorry I had to vote no too, it was put in place to help players who didn't want to play with someone that wouldn't leave them alone. And as such is an important player tool.

Everything can, and probably will be misused in some way by someone, however the benifits this has brought to those who felt they were being harrassed by someone to me out weights its misuse by some.

It also helps those who don't want to play with someone who they feel cheats or has a too high percentage of quits.

I understand that it is frustrating that some use it otherwise but since they can they will.

As most people know there isn't always a guide available. Better way would be if you see someone abusing the button, make a list of the nicks and don't join thier games and don't let them join yours. When they run out of people to play with maybe they will stop.

Whilst I mean no disrespect, here we go again. Another minority asking for a tool to be removed. Rather than have it removed, why can't it be an option?

Those that don't want kick/ban don't have to use it and those that want it can then everyone's happy. It's a no brainer from where I'm sitting. :)

Host your own game.If you remove the kick option then you will have people hosting and then leaving when someone they don't want to play sits. I know I would.

YOU GUYS ARE NOT LISTENING---IT'S NOT THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO PLAY WITH YOU--ITS BECAUSE YOUR A THREAT TO THEM---THEY HAVE HIGH RATINGS AND FEED ON THE LOWER RATES---IF YOU SIT WITH A RATE NEAR OR EQUAL TO THEM THEY KICK YOU-----DO YOU ALL PLAY IN HARDWOOD SPADES---I FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO A BRICK WALL HERE----

THEY NEED TO SET THEIR TABLE TO MATCH THEIR RATES-----AND IF THEY SET NO RULES ---LIKE 1500 AND ABOVE THEN ANYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO JOIN---

Then if it's an option rather than actually removed, a player can choose whether they sit at that table or not ... threat or no threat. It's all about choices.

And I was listening so there's no need to shout ... I'm not deaf ;) lol

I voted no tooo. I actually use that button. In fact i used it last night when a player came to my table to annoy me. I dont use the ban button, but i would if they kept at me.

I have not seen the feeding frenzy, but I know I wil kick low rated players if im in a provie game. As far as you being higher rated that would not bother me a bit, more competiton.

YOUR NOT GETTING THIS----AND EVIDENTIALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND THEY'RE SETTING THERE WITH THEIR PARTNER--------THE OPPONNENTS
ARE THE ONES GETTING KICKED AND BANNED-----------YOU DON'T GET A CHANCE TO PLAY WITH THESE PEOPLE--THEY KICK YOU---AND ITS NOT THAT I WANT TO KICK THEM IN MY GAME---I PLAY WITH ALL--OR CHOOSE THE GAME I WANT TO PLAY IN BEFORE I SIT-----
