FML - The follow-up

Today, I got banned from my favourite online video game for calling a person on my team a "Baked Potato". FML

You'd be right! I'll try and condense the story for you. So basically, I was playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (the game mentioned in my post) and my team was messing about and killing each other. In my frustration, I called the one who was the most annoying on my team a baked potato. It seems that he too must have been frustrated, because the next thing I know, he's called a vote to kick me from my team. Since I'm at the top of the leaderboard and I'm carrying my team (despite losing by

Well, I've been on reddit recently and I found this thing where I believe people with Down syndrome are called potatoes. It's disgusting and I don't see any humor in that at all. Maybe the servers/whoever was monitoring thought that's what OP meant.

I thought you were full of shit, but Google says you're right. Apparently it refers to "I can count to potato." It's also used against Australian Aboriginals.

But to be honest, any parent with a child with mental disabilities needs to monitor their children's online activities more. People curse and insult online because that is where they take their frustrations out on. It's better to call a stranger a touch hole than beat the shit out of your neighbors car... Just saying

A person with an actual learning and mental disability, not somebody pulling a state check because they are awesome at deception, should not play online games with aggressive and violent language. That being said, I have a severely autistic nephew, whom I have devoted much love and lifestyle changes for (learning sign language, spending time with him with sensory therapy etc) mental disability pretty much means part of their brains do not function properly... So ya, they shouldn't be online with

You say you have an autistic nephew. Surely you've dealt with a few assholes who thought he was a) just a bratty kid, or b) too stupid to be in public. Did you not think that by accusing me of lying, you might be one of those assholes? Don't get me wrong, I get where you're coming from; I'm pretty eloquent in my writing and you have a hard time reconciling that with the idea that I could be autistic too, but let me tell you some things you can't know just by reading my comments. I was diagnose

Runescape where no one talks to eachother? In the years that I played it from 2001 to 2009, not very many people spoke. Even when I would play it briefly in 2010-2012. The most you'd see is "selling lobby pots" or something equally as exciting.

I believe games like ArcheAge are far better than Runescape, or cs. I've met many awesome people playing MMOs such as Deicide, twelve sky, 2moons, perfect world, cabal, neverwinter, rohan, tera, aion, and many others. ArcheAge is my most favorite though. Because i haven't met as many annoying ones on that and the admins are great. I'm curious what game OP has been banned from.

@44 I used to play it between 2006-2010. In those 4 years I met a lot of people, one of them with whom I'm very good friends with to this date and who I even met IRL, others who i still talk to. I have no idea how good/poor the community is now in 2015 since I dont play anymore, but if the most you've seen was "selling lobby pots" back in the old days then maybe you never cared enough to involve yourself in the community

Just gonna drop in and say Aion has a pretty decent community. ;) Not a biased judgment at all. Or attempting to persuade other gamers to give it a try. -nudge nudge wink wink- Oh and Siel server Elyos is the best server/faction. Again, I'm not being biased whatsoever. Hue.

Let's be real, half of the active Aion accounts are gold farmers because the game itself is a massive bland grind. Maybe I just hate all MMOs. I haven't enjoyed one since Spiral Knights, and I beat all the content too quickly. Anybody wanna make an MMO that doesn't suck with me?

I was just saying runescape and cs because they were mentioned. I wasn't really comparing the communities of each one. I was stating that in my opinion i like mmorpg's more. Also if you're going to play Aion, go for Asmos! I played on EU server Telemachus and the Ely are over populated.

I have played several MMOs over the years. I can't exactly say when I started, I don't keep track, but Neverwinter has a semidecent community, along with FF14, RIFT(if you found the right people), and Spiral Knights, just to name a few. This is my opinion, feel free to agree or dissent.

I've just gotten into ArcheAge myself, #48, and I've gotta say, the community is fun and the games clever, I'd probably suggest it to others. But oddly enough, I'm a carebear, which is usually looked down on, and still managing to have a blast.

After reading what could be the colloqial, slang definition of a "baked potato", and possibly understanding why you were banned, I have just one question; who calls another person a baked potato, for any reason?

Reply

Depends on what meaning they used? If it is a stoned couch potato, I can see it. If it is the first urban dictionary definition, I cannot see why you would call someone that.
