It seems that people have gone back a step with the anonymity that the internet provides. I would like to think that the people in this article would never say these things directly to someone's face, but that doesn't excuse the shite that they have already come out with.
What century do we live in?

Psyco, you're just begging for daft tags, aren't you ? I don't think being a squirrel that can't spell his/her own name will let you off the hook.
You'd never see abuse on this site !
It's good that the article finishes with a picture of a real woman, in case the male gamers aren't sure what one is.
I played an online game once, but most of the people on there were stoned, sweary scousers. I haven't bothered since. And not just because they were better than me.
Look Sinnick, it's hard enough to look after my nuts as it is never mind spell corektly... I do like the Louis Vuitton trampolines tag though, very creative.
Wayland, I have never played online games before but I can imagine there would be a lot of stoned sweary scousers involved. What gets me about it all is that people think that by hiding behind an avatar or screen name they can forgo the basic decency that is common to most people.
I shall be very interested to see the tags by the end of the day...
Back in my day all the women in online games were men, and it was all the better for it.
'Grace, of Fat Ugly or Slutty, says many women gamers feel reporting abuse achieves nothing'
The byline to the photo of the pleasant looking lady at the bottom of the article.
I wonder if she has a business card? And if she does, I wonder if it sub-clarifies according to category? She certainly doesn't look fat or ugly...
