Writing the story …

img11_big (1)The test run of my avatar in this virtual community is a ”nasty” one due the big dose of  nonconformity. The Western publisher of 9Dragons is Acclaim. I will refer at the entity as the ”official”. The official power is divide by Acclaim group form by Acclaim community manager ”TheHistorian”, 9Dragons community manager ”BluFlash”, game masters and players from community group in moderators team and VGM’s team ( a helping team for GM’s). On the other hand, my avatar belongs to the community of players, which is not yet mixt up in a legal form. The gamers community has leaders, gamers and stereotypes of alternative avatars of the ~officials~. The stereotypes enters in action when the approach-avoidance conflict can’t be slacked with the locked or delete of topics on forum or a chat bann in game. 

The legal  frame is form by TOS and the Rules of Conduct. The rules are very simple and not elaborate at all.The TOS is the common one with no personalization ( except the ads system ). This is my favourite reply from the rule section, post by TheHistorian :

“What about my Freedom of Speech?” 
We are not stopping you from starting your own boards out there on the Internet (in fact we encourage it), to say whatever you want, but here the above just won’t be tolerated.

Joshua Fairfield  would reply : “courts can draw on existing and familiar areas of common law to provide the private-property, dignitary, and personal protections these communities need according to the specific behavioural norms their creators and users have fostered. The common law method, being iterative, incremental, and experimental, is well suited to modifying these areas where needed. It allows for the more immediate resolution of problems while also being sufficiently flexible to permit rules to be expanded or contained as required.”

What about “officials Acclaim abuses” ?…that part is missing…

  1. I belive the above is the copy/paste flame, off-topic and ding ding dong notions not define in the law group of elements.

    Actually, Fairfield said what any lawyer or non-lawyer with relevant experience would have expected to be mentioned.

    Freedom of speech is like WoW conflict: races can indeed be read as a real-world racist (Horde vs Alliance). Internet is a public place so if they choose to have a board on the net space, they should at least not mention about freedom of speech.

  2. ”above” notion from…”We are not stopping you from starting your own boards out there on the Internet (in fact we encourage it), to say whatever you want, but here the above just won’t be tolerated.”

  3. Agree with Wizard. The Internet not only provides universal access to free speech, it also promotes the basic concept of freedom of speech. If you believe that there is an inherent value in truth, that human beings on average and over time recognize and value truth, and that truth is best decided in a free marketplace of ideas, then the ability of the Internet to promote freedom of speech is very important indeed.

    The Internet is a common area, a public space like any village square, except that it is the largest common area that has ever existed.If Acclaim choose to have a forum on the internet space, that sentence has no place in the rule zone.

    As I understand they censor players right of speech, but protect the official one. Like BLizz in the beginning : amateur.

    • In the U.S., even hate speech is protected, unless it is deemed to be an incitement to violence in which the threat of violence is imminent.

      How was that sentence ? …. ‘Yeah,we’re civilized alright.’

  4. “What about my Freedom of Speech?”
    We are not stopping you from starting your own boards out there on the Internet (in fact we encourage it), to say whatever you want, but here the above just won’t be tolerated.

    Any free man – one of the people (a real human being) – can make a declaration and claim on anything he/she wishes.

    Could a common man, not make a common declaration?
    Could a declaration be challenged?

    Even if you think you are claiming something, any body else is still free to put a claim on the same thing, or some overlapping claim, at which time contention / controversy arises, so we need the freedom of speech.
