I've been arguing for some time now that the community needs to decide on its social "identity" and take actions to make offenders aware when they go extremely out of the lines of that identity. People not only know an MMORPG for the quality of the content, but also the quality of the players. There are people who are outright rude in this game, and when I have said something about it, I have on several occasions been told to "play 'Hello Kitty Online'".
The questions I pose are:
What is our "indentity"?
What do we want our "identity" to be?
What can we do to make the two become one?
These are the questions that all communities have been thrust upon themselves since the begining of civilization. It's time that we (in STO) answer them for ourselves.
