The online gamer is a special breed. The whole point is interacting with, potentially, anyone else in the world. Instead of using this force for good, these annoying habits sometimes make online gaming unbearable for serious players. As Ben Parker said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Use it wisely friends…
Cheaters suck in all walks of life. How can you tell if you’re any good at something if Cheaters lower the bottom line? It’s especially annoying in gaming because we can’t reach through the Router, rip a Cheater’s heart out and throw it on the barby. Yet…

Griefers are there to, well, cause you nothing but grief. It’s evil “fun” for it’s own sake. But, perhaps the most incomprehensible type is the Suicide Griefer, especially those who have amassed impressive scores, kills and possessions through superior skill and extended game play.
