Should they be held responsible for the guy-bolloks they spout? Should WE be held responsible for all the drivel we spout while playing games? Are they to be held for everything they say and do, whilst it's public?
I don't watch those vids now, simply because I don't like that level of inane banter. It's one of the reasons I steer clear of any Talk-Radio too, as they all seem to suffer from the same mundane levels of speaker-ignorance and ill-considered comments.
They should (the ones in the article), yes, because they're not only doing this in a very public setting, they're doing it on this "show" that Capcom was producing to promote their game.... that's something that's gonna be seen by WAY more people than most events.
I mean, it's one thing to have some banter among friends at a casual get-together. But even then.... MOST people wont even think of saying some of the crap that that guy did, even in THAT setting. Even in public settings, it nearly never gets nasty like that. You'll get some randomized swearwords, and various forms of light banter (of the "Hah, I'm gonna kick your ass!" type), but.... the stuff that guy spouted? It surprised even me, and I've heard *alot* of crap from that community. He went way, way too far.
But it's not just him, it's that community. There are those within it that, like him, will believe all the same stuff he clearly does. It really is a pretty nasty place (if you can call it a place).
Even the shmups.com forums, or the Minecraft forums, are happy, rainbow filled wonderlands compared with the blazing hellhole that is the fighting community.
