Zwooper is a Family - Stop Bullying


Because we play such competitive games, all about excluding others, a big part of zwooper is fighting. Sometimes we thrive in it, and it can be really fun.

But what is not fun is that I see a number of players who have been blacklisted for mistakes they made, and they are relentlessly bullied and picked on by the community at large, no matter which game they join. Bullying is defined as repeated harassment, and that's what I'm seeing lately.

This is really bothering me. Zwooper is a community. A family. And there are some people here who have made mistakes, but they shouldn't have others hating on them years after. I think if there is any place to make a social mistake and learn from it, it's online. Cut them some slack. Don't hold grudges from things in the past if that thing has ended. People grow, evolve and can be redeemed. I believe in forgiveness.

Let's get real - From what I've seen, a big portion of zwooper are individuals who feel shy in real life, but find they can find a place to be themselves here on Zwooper. More real - Individuals who have been picked on themselves, or who are lacking something in their life, are more likely to pick on others, especially online. Realest yet - Nothing brings people together like a common enemy

Please don't find your own place in this community by picking on someone who is already down. It is not right and not what Zwooper is about. Sometimes it can be a lot more fun to work with an underdog than just sheep the masses. Reach out your hand. Offer forgiveness. You might make a big difference in someone's day, or even life.

Should people be held accountable for inappropriate actions on Zwooper? Yes. Should they be permanently blacklisted by everyone on this site after they apologize? No.

@JaMarcus_Russell , like I said before I have played games with him and in fact we have been rivals in past games. We legit would always target each other in 247's and any other game we were in, but then we started actually talking and the more I talked with him, the more I came to find out that he is just a loveable sweetheart. I honestly don't have anything bad to say about @TheGuy EVER! In fact, I consider him one of my closest friends on Zwooper. I have backstabbed him before too and he was in no way, shape or form rude/fake/hateful or anything to me except nice. Like I said though, we're not always going to agree and I'm not trying to argue by any means, but I just don't want people getting a pre conceived notion about someone who I truly care for and like esepcially when I don't see him the way that some others do. I mean, I care for everyone's well being on this site (even if we do argue a lot @Majestic), so i just don't want to see people get hurt or anything. I mean Stevie isn't a little butthurt baby when it comes to those kinds of comments like me, but you never know what could hurt someone's feelings. Anyways, before I go off track here lol, I just think Stevie is a much better person than how some people may see him.

This is not a family. It never will be. Sure, some people find friends on here and genuinely relationships are formed. That's all it needs to be and all it ever will be. There's far too much stupid drama between far too many people for this to be a family. People make posts like this every so often and there will never be enough cohesion for people to actually treat this entire user base like one big family. Lol. I appreciate the optimism though.

LMAO @km1997 hit the nail on the head with that answer. @iiAmySunshine I used to feel the same tbh, but seriously wait until you backstab him once in a game and you'll see what I mean, He''s VERY fake nice, ik I may sound like a dick saying that but tbh I had his back a while ago when people were saying that same shit about him but i've seen his bad side, that's why I'm not taking this post seriously at all rn. I've been in 3 games with him, each time he was a juror and he vored bitterly all 3 time. Great message, not the best person to be spreading the message tho.

@km1997 , I honestly think @TheGuy is a really sweet person. Everytime I talk to him, he just seems to have a positive aura surrounding him (I totally sound like I've been smoking weed.... probably have. LOL JK!). I don't know if that's just me or if you've just seen a side that I guess I haven't seen or have ignored? But, he is a really sweet person inside and outside of games everytime we speak. I think inside games, everyone can be a little bitter or hateful, but it's what people are like outside the games that matters to me. I don't find him being nice an "act" at all and I find it really.... heart-warming, that when I talk to him as a person, he tries and gets to know me and vice versa. He definitely doesn't seem like a fake nice person to me and I enjoy his prescence anytime. Anytime I need to talk to someone, he's always there for me and I really appreciate him and respect him for that. I love him along with everyone else on this site, with ll my heart and no this isn't an argument against you because obviously not everyone will have the same opinion, but I am merely stating how I see Stevie and how wonderful I think he is <3

@PocketRocket16 knows all about bullying
@TheGuy yes these are games, but it’s a little hypocritical when you are or were bitter towards Jamarcus and held it against him even after the game was over. The fake nice thing is a good presence to have on zwooper, I guess. But follow what you preach and maybe some people will actually take this to heart. Also, a lot of what people have against others have really nothing to do with games, just them as people. Which you can’t really “forget” about. Take @ZackT for example.

This has been said time and time again but as much as I agree with what has been said, nothing will change. People don’t take Zwooper as seriously as how they act or do things irl. People don’t just stop because you tell them to, although that’s be nice... unfortunately some are not as open-minded and optimistic as you are with how they treat people, as we are obviously all different and have different approaches to life I guess. The best thing to do it is just ignore. If things get out of hand here, moderation will deal with their sad dumb asses The more they continue the useless bs of trying to bring someone down, it’s kind of making them look even more pathetic that they have the time to do that shit so, it’s up to them with how they want to continue to embarrass ourselves. No one should take what online strangers say to heart as what importance do their messages have? Idgaf because I will never meet them nor will I try. As long as you aren’t the one continuing to provoke them, they’ll look like the idiot soooo yeah
