So I was wondering, what are your ethics and what are your presumptions in Runescape, also what do you make of other people's ethics?
I avoid unethical behavior for instance, I don't shamelessly self-promote myself (too much : d), I don't scam, I never flame (on purpose) and I rarely get heated.
Some examples of unethical behavior could be I buy an item in the G.E and fail to sell it for a profit so I make a forum topic on how good it is, I don't judge those who gamble or spend their scape time in different ways. I found it hard to bring myself to banning people from my PKing teams (but when I did I made an example of them), and I presume that everything's fair game as long as your not hurting somebody else and you enjoy doing it (note: this is hard to apply to pking).
I have read through some topics today with people flaming and judging but for instance when I happen to see something like an
E-dater, I disapprove but I keep quiet and sometimes turn my public chat to friends.
Also, I don't bot, never have, never will even if it's allowed by Jagex (in some strange alternate universe). I take pride in my accomplishments and am disheartened by those who bot their 99's then act proud of it while knowing they did little to no work.
So my discussion question / topic is:
~What do you do if you see an activity you deem as unacceptable (and what are those activities?), also what do activities do you engage in that your not too proud of (be honest but not incriminating!)? What could you do you think could improve the overall morale of scapers and encourage fair and reasonably honest play.
Or is Runescape (in your opinion) an all out free-for-all?
I hope to see some interesting responses!
