It's odd how you were inspired to make a link for your Hood effect, but it's not to a website or article explaining what the Hood effect is. Neither does Google seem to find any good quick explanation of it. That was very helpful, thank you.

Are you saying that the industry and gaming culture consider that acceptable behavior, or that a vocal minority of shitheads do? Extrapolating the behavior of the few and deciding the many think it's cool is of course, quite silly. Don't you think that suggesting the entire industry and all gamers have a problem is rather ad hom-y of you?

Do you think that because the average gamer is in the mid 30s that there are no vocal minority of immature, blubbering 12 year olds or those who act like them? Extremists and idiots always make more noise. And they either don't know or don't care (quite often both) if the majority doesn't share their opinions - if they did, we wouldn't be talking about them, would we? That's exactly WHY they do what they do.

If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
