Judging by your post, one could think that Replay has a very strict table etiquette. Even such impatient, but actually harmless expressions like “zzzzzz” or “fu” seem to be against the rules, and could be reported.
About two months ago, I had a very disagreeable encounter with a Dutch player at a ring table. As soon as I joined the table, out of the blue he started insulting me in German and Dutch, screamed several times “Nazi Pig”, called me wh.re (how original!) and many names of the same kind, and said at least ten times in a row: go away, go away.
I had never seen him before.
Since I take everything with sense of humour, at first I laughed because he reminded me of Steve Martin in “Dead Don’t Wear Plaid” who goes berserk every time he hears the word “cleaning woman”, and I thought it was the same for him with “miri123”.
I only wanted to play a couple of games in peace, though, so in the end I left the table.
Some days later, I met him a second time, and I had the “pleasure” of enjoying the same abuses for a quarter of an hour. This time I reported him, specifying it was not the first time it happened, and I included a small but very representative copy of the chat.
Evidently nothing happened to him, because I met him a third time, and he was totally free to insult me again.
This morning the same with another player.
At a ring table a spectator started harassing a French player with insults in French and English, and went on for several minutes. It was very bothering for the game, so I asked him why he kept on talking from the outside with somebody who clearly didn’t wish to talk with him.
I acted like a lightning rod, and he directed his fury towards me, calling me the usual names and encouraging me to take care of his private parts. LOL Sorry, but so it was, more or less. When a British player intervened, he started ranting about foreigners (i.e. all non-Americans).
I reported him, saying exactly at which table and when it happened.
Do you think there is any probability I won’t have the same experience with that man again?
Somehow I’d prefer to concentrate on the game rather than on my virtue.
