Phat Phreddy reacted to Hellsfog in opinions on sirfoch being censored?
You have a rather narrow concept of censorship. The ability to censor is not limited to a government as we all learned when the tobacco companies were caught censoring scientific studies. Even on your narrow definition, use of the government or threat of government action to silence opinions you do not like is censorship, e.g. when a private entity threatens a media outlet with violations of the a statute in order to prevent disclosure of whatever it may be. To make it more plain, if a corporation threatens to ruin you financially if you say or write thus or so, it's censorship. When progressives make it so whichever fox news shit can't speak at Berkeley, it's censorship.
tl;dr: the power to censor does not rest only with a government.
I do agree with you that as world events go, this is a trifle. Still, WG's conduct has shown it in a bad light and was certainly poorly handled.

No I'm just here to farm upvotes, its more satisfying than WN8, you should try it sometime.

So I assume that you will have your ' fun ' then Indeed and possibly ' remove me ' again?
Even when I did not do anything incorrect half a year ago, I think that it was.
Your moderator friend did call me in your ' chat ' wanting me to ' prove ' something.
And as I came there as the moderator did wish, then I got removed from here,
which is rather interesting don't you think?

Just...just stop. I keep thinking you people are about to abruptly:
tell Delta flight 2734 out of Chicago they're cleared to land on runway 27, or try to sell me a Slap Chop or Shamwow. Those things look absurd.

Phat Phreddy reacted to Private_Miros in 'Nother shit night - so many baddie teams
Moderation tends to agree with those interesting opinions though. We give you the benefit of believing that you are weak troll that is barely worthy of attention. But, good, you're annoying, so we'll deal with it.
This is a warning. You can stop shitpoasting and start posting normally, or you can leave the forums on your own accord. If that does not work, we'd be glad to help you.

Phat Phreddy reacted to Maledictus in Epic "trolling" is epic
So, I made some random comment in chat when a guy was raging during a battle. He proceeded to message me after the battle and below is how this went.
* The first few lines cut off. He barged in asking me what he did to me. I said that I was stirring the pot, and asked if he wanted juice. He did not reply and kept calling me asshole and douche. Now the below happened.
Maledictus (8:21:27 PM) Tea perhaps?
GojiraTX (8:21:43 PM) why are you an asshole. that's all i want to know
Maledictus (8:21:47 PM) I may have some coffee around here somewhere I am certain.
Maledictus (8:22:11 PM) I am just trying to help you. Help me help you Gojira.
GojiraTX (8:22:23 PM) i don't even know you and you're being a douche
Maledictus (8:23:01 PM) Gojira, WOT is not about killing tanks, it is about a safe space to grow! Please stop being hateful!
GojiraTX (8:23:34 PM) tryiing to see if i can get any kind reasonable from you other than just insults
GojiraTX (8:23:39 PM) trying*
GojiraTX (8:23:47 PM) reasonable response*
Maledictus (8:24:24 PM) I would never insult anyone! I was being cordial by offering you juice, coffee or tea. You seemed upset so I thought those would help.
GojiraTX (8:25:08 PM) "mad becuase bad" implying you're perfect.
GojiraTX (8:25:19 PM) i asked if i did something to you
GojiraTX (8:25:22 PM) and i get this
GojiraTX (8:25:32 PM) somantics
Maledictus (8:25:33 PM) So no coffee or tea?
GojiraTX (8:25:35 PM) thats all this is
Maledictus (8:25:43 PM) semantics*
GojiraTX (8:25:50 PM) i know sorry
GojiraTX (8:25:55 PM) but really
GojiraTX (8:26:04 PM) what did i do to you
Maledictus (8:26:35 PM) It's ok Gojira. This is a safe space. You can be yourself here.
GojiraTX (8:26:56 PM) give me an answer
GojiraTX (8:27:26 PM) i know it's a difficult task but you can atleast try
Maledictus (8:27:49 PM) I can't tell you if you want tea or coffee or nothing. If I pour the tea/coffee down your throat that would be rape. And rape is bad.
GojiraTX (8:28:22 PM) answer please
Maledictus (8:28:50 PM) I can assume you would like some soothing chamomile tea? maybe a nice lavender?
GojiraTX (8:28:58 PM) answer
GojiraTX (8:29:11 PM) that's what i'd like
GojiraTX (8:29:20 PM) that's why i started this pm
Maledictus (8:29:23 PM) I will go with lavender, you seem cranky, probably from a lack of sleep.
GojiraTX (8:29:36 PM) you seem to have something against me and i want to know what it is
Maledictus (8:30:12 PM) I have nothing against you, I just want to help you. Please, if lavender tea is not what you want let me know!
Maledictus (8:31:34 PM) Gojira? Tea? No?
GojiraTX (8:31:44 PM) then why did you assume that becuase i didn't like someone telling me my tank was shit because he likes another tank
GojiraTX (8:31:57 PM) that it means that im bad
GojiraTX (8:32:03 PM) at the game
Maledictus (8:32:32 PM) The same reason you refuse to answer me with what beverage I can get you!
Maledictus (8:32:59 PM) Help me, help you Gojira!
Maledictus (8:33:10 PM) I just want you to feel better!
GojiraTX (8:33:14 PM) i was ass raped by teir 10's in a sherman. of course im going to be irritated
GojiraTX (8:33:37 PM) don't see how that shows my skill level
Maledictus (8:34:01 PM) I recommend then that you try chamomile. It will help you relax a bit.
GojiraTX (8:34:23 PM) im ignoring you retarded tea questions same as you're ignoring my question
GojiraTX (8:34:53 PM) your
GojiraTX (8:35:03 PM) *
GojiraTX (8:36:22 PM) just answer my first question and i'll go
Maledictus (8:37:17 PM) Sorry was brewing your tea. Would you like a few biscuits as well? Shortbread perhaps?
Maledictus (8:37:56 PM) And do you take your tea with milk or sugar?
GojiraTX (8:43:10 PM) please answer my question
GojiraTX (8:44:55 PM) you're joke has worn itself thin
Maledictus (8:46:25 PM) Gojira, I just brewed the best tea ever! You should have a cup!
GojiraTX (8:46:31 PM) as well as my patience, which I'm very sure was your goal
GojiraTX (8:46:42 PM) so you win
Maledictus (8:46:50 PM) This tea will absolutely make you feel better!
GojiraTX (8:47:28 PM) you msde this not only take longer but you've made me think of you less than human
GojiraTX (8:47:34 PM) no on's this dull
GojiraTX (8:47:38 PM) one's*
GojiraTX (8:47:43 PM) made*
GojiraTX (8:48:09 PM) no one living this long could be this fucking stupid
Maledictus (8:48:12 PM) I am sorry you feel this way Gojira. I am just trying to help. I want you to feel better. That is all!
GojiraTX (8:48:53 PM) you're doing the exact opposite
GojiraTX (8:48:57 PM) and you know this
Maledictus (8:49:01 PM) I know why you are upset! You are from Texas where they drink sweet ICED tea! How inconsiderate of me!
GojiraTX (8:49:08 PM) that's why you continue
GojiraTX (8:49:46 PM) look
Maledictus (8:50:03 PM) Can you wait here for say, 30 minutes? I can brew up some Liptons tea and make you some refreshing iced tea!
GojiraTX (8:50:08 PM) i kno it's hard for someone like you not to be a dick but you can atleast try
GojiraTX (8:50:11 PM) know*
GojiraTX (8:50:47 PM) i wanted to know what it is that you have against me. it must be something quite big if you decided to do this for this long
Maledictus (8:51:01 PM) Ohhh, just thought about this, it's close to the holidays and you might like some eggnog!
GojiraTX (8:51:17 PM) why do you hate me
Maledictus (8:52:01 PM) Gojira, I don't hate you, I am trying to be friendly and offer you a beverage. It is you who are being rude and not answering.
GojiraTX (8:52:43 PM) dude. the only reason i even started this pm was for one fucking question
GojiraTX (8:53:00 PM) once you aswered i'd be on my way
GojiraTX (8:53:15 PM) but you won't even do that
Maledictus (8:53:15 PM) I am just being a good host. You literally just barged in here and now you won't take my beverages. How rude!
GojiraTX (8:54:31 PM) i know what you're trying to do. it's not working. I'm not going to give up until you give me an answer
Maledictus (8:56:33 PM) Well, I am not going to sacrifice my being a good host, just because you want to be rude!
GojiraTX (8:57:16 PM) how am i rude. i wanted a simple answer and you decided to do
GojiraTX (8:57:20 PM) this..
GojiraTX (8:57:42 PM) you're treating me like an idiot
Maledictus (8:59:51 PM) I am sorry you feel like that. But I have been nothing but nice and you are all upset and being rude. You sir, are not a good guest.
GojiraTX (9:00:32 PM) wth are you even talking about
GojiraTX (9:01:33 PM) I'm sure you're sitting there laughing your ass off right now. but for me this far from funny
Maledictus (9:02:20 PM) You came over here and barged in my place, therefore you are a guest. As a guest it is rude to insult your host! Don't you know etiquette?
TL:DR: Such trollz. Much mad. Very wow!
GojiraTX (9:03:08 PM) it's pm chat on world of tanks
GojiraTX (9:03:26 PM) what ettiquite is required for that
GojiraTX (9:03:30 PM) nome
GojiraTX (9:03:32 PM) none*
GojiraTX (9:03:49 PM) you sound like someone who enjoys rp
GojiraTX (9:03:58 PM) the way you type
Maledictus (9:04:37 PM) This is my safe space. WOT is about safe spaces not killing tanks.
GojiraTX (9:04:59 PM) a tank is not alive
GojiraTX (9:05:04 PM) you cannot kill it
Maledictus (9:05:50 PM) You came to me, not the other way around. I offered you a beverage. You have not answered. I cannot help you feel better unless you want to feel better.
GojiraTX (9:06:24 PM) i came to you becuase i wanted to know something
GojiraTX (9:06:34 PM) what you had against me
Maledictus (9:06:35 PM) Do you want to feel better Gojira?
Maledictus (9:06:46 PM) I want you to feel better.
Maledictus (9:07:00 PM) Your unhappiness is making me unhappy.
Maledictus (9:07:08 PM) Help me.
Maledictus (9:07:15 PM) Help you Gojira.
GojiraTX (9:07:19 PM) it's not wrong to ask a question like that is it? what do you have a against me
GojiraTX (9:07:36 PM) ..
Maledictus (9:07:59 PM) Gojira, if you have hate in your heart let it out!
GojiraTX (9:08:08 PM) kys
Maledictus (9:08:55 PM) Hate leads to the dark side of the force Gojira. You don't want to be on that side!

GojiraTX (9:11:31 PM) why did you not answer my question
Maledictus (9:11:50 PM) We could have helped you!
Phat Phreddy reacted to TwixOps in IT'S OVER 9000!!!!!!1!!!!11!!!eleven!!!
Yes, that's right... I just got my average damage per game in rampage over 9k. I am actually wondering if there is anyone who has a higher aDPG, as I have not even seen a single person with even close to mine (including unicums)
If you or someone you know has me beat, please... tell me. I need a new number to top.
Phat Phreddy reacted to dalailama121 in I am being sued by QuickyBaby because of one of your streamers. What constitutes fair use?
I am being sued by QuickyBaby because of one of your streamers. I am wondering what action I should take.
I am often on twitch, as I find World of Tanks streams useful noise when vacuuming and working out, and they are also a great sleeping aid (Jingles smoothy silk voice is excellent in this regard, pop on Jingles epic 1 hour is-7 review while in bed and I'll be out like a light).
Now one day, one of your streamers wanted an example of a time when QuickyBaby raged at his wife. I of course understand why you people might want something like that. Quickybaby of course steals the limelight, suffocating your views in the process, so you call his wife a "russian mail order bride" and anytime QB is mentioned in chat many of your people will fly into a rage such as Orzanel as being "rude." As someone who is in streams a lot, I of course remembered a funny incident that I had recorded in one of QB's streams.
I uploaded the video to youtube and shared it to the streamer and his audience, who was disappointed and complained that it was not ragey enough. Now THAT'S rude after all the effort I put in.
Going to bed, after a few days I found that my youtube account had been flagged by QuickyBaby. Not wanting a copyright flag (which restricts access and can lead to a ban), I disputed the claim. My counter claim succeeded, my video and account were restored, but now I'm being sued by QuickyBaby! And all because of one of your streamers.
I wonder what I should do. Do you think I can win a case against QuickyBaby or should I submit to his worship? QuickyBaby wants to sue my video because he claims he owns me, but under copyright law, I say that it falls under fair use. Do you think my video, linked below, is fair use? I need your advice, since a lot of you are also streamers and have a perspective in this matter. Note my video is and has NEVER been monetized.
As you can see by the video description I added my own parody/satirical spin to it:
Now according to youtube: https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/fair-use.html#yt-copyright-four-factors
QuickyBaby first tried to take down my video with a copyright claim:
I counter-notified (which QB would also have received copy of. The reply had to be very to the point, because google gives you a tiny word limit):
And sent him this PM:
Do you feel my justifications for fair use are sound? Youtube must have thought so because my video was then restored:
But today I received this ominous message:
What am I going to do? QuickBaby, oh god, is going to sue me. And it's all your fault wotlabs. You and your streamer.
What do I do?

Things wrong with thread:
1. Location. Casual purple? You aren't anywhere close, esp since its in an ELC.
2. Rarity. As if I don't see this every single day (on my team or enemies), I don't need to see it more.
3. Thread quality. Literally just a picture. Too fucking lazy to even make any text. This is a 2/10 status update turned into a 0/10 thread.
Phat Phreddy reacted to rabidmonkey679 in why are such a high proportion of purps such assholes?
So I play about 60 odd games a day at the moment and a couple of weeks ago I started keeping tabs on 1. games with unicums where they said nothing or helped someone and 2. games where they shouted at someone specifically (unconstructively)/ raged in local or global chat/ or was just a general nuisance.
total games with purps: 14
total helpful or no word games: 3
unhelpful games: 11!!!
11 out of 14!!!
now I know the sample size is small but seeing how unicums are somewhat of a rarity this is to be expected.
what drives them to be unconstructive <notgonnawritethatcositllbemoderated> this is totally opposite to what I've seen from the guys on here who have, bar a very few been helpful and want to raise the standard of play.
one other thing, the uni's are not raging at me so this isn't a case of sour grapes just a genuine question, is it just that extreme competitiveness brings out the worst in some people?
