OH NO!!! HOW WILL WE EVER STOP THIS WILD GANG OF RUFFIANS!? THERE MUST BE SOME WAY!!! Oh wait... you just posted a thread with a video of you griefing stuff, and included your names, lol, hope you enjoy your ban from every server that reads this thread :tongue.gif:
Disclaimer: I don't grief since I do not find enjoyment in causing other people stress when they are trying to have some fun. Nor do I normally type like I am about too, but you have to deal with these people on their level.
Having said that, I have seen some griefers and griefing in my time that have brought me near doodying in my pants from lulz. That video is 100% n00b and the OP that retarded it, i mean recorded, should bang his head against a 2x4 of rusty nails. That's not REAL greifing you loser. People watching should get some bloody kicks from it at least. All I saw was a unimaginative moron doing some small time dismantling. Heck, read the youtube comments. Even greifers were all like face/palm wtf is this crap. I'm guessing you just discovered the dark side of the internet and want to be one of the "cool-kids" in a rebellious sort of way. It'll probably be another week before you DL some crack or hack that ends up stealing your parents credit card info and causes them weeks of stress trying to reverse the damage to their credit rating. Why? Because you are stupid factorial.
Now for something half way intelligent. Greifers greif. Players play. You can't have one without the other. It's a existential dilemma. If there are only greifers, then they become players once some of them figure out how to annoy the others. If there are only players, then the greifers will find them eventually. So we can't get rid of griefers. What we can do is admit that the int0rwebz iz not serius bsness.
The griefers want to make you angry. So don't get angry if you get griefed. It is just a game after all. Think of them as a natural disaster of multi-player. Rate them on their talent. Admit it, some griefing is down right hilarious. Then recognize that there are at least two things a griefer does not want to be told before they have their IP banned. One is that he/she sucks at it like the OP, and the other is "Dude you got my building/town/whatever, but that was f'ing funny." Think about it. Think about their motivations and why they do what they do. Some are just short-bus kids that can be revenge-griefed just by insulting their abilities (like the OP), others won't get nearly the satisfaction they crave if they think you actually got some enjoyment out of their shenanigans.
i would just watch and laugh. then warp them to a glass holding cell to watch as i rebuild it with 1 command. i grief my own servers just for fun when im bored and load a backup or restore cuboid when i have it out of my system.
