Anybody else tired of this racist bs?

Post by HUGHJASOLE »

I keep getting trade offers from Seattle's owner that read like this:

Comment from SEA: look yallz iz Winnin aint shore what y?all lookin fo az CoMpToN iz all bout tradez...... CoMpToN been here fo long time an CoMpToN noz who CoMpToN iz...... CoMpToN ain?t makin nuthin bout race ...,... CoMpToN

I get that the guy is probably a little light in the grey, but I'm not OK with this. I've told the guy I want no trade offers because of the racist use of language. They keep coming. Anybody else fed up? What are my options? This kinda racist bulls**t is just not OK. This might be fantasy, but real-world values still apply.

Comptonz has always posted in forums and messages in this format at least for the last 6 real years i have been playing this game....just to let you know from what i understand that comptonz was banned from all forums and Private messages serveral years ago and the only communication with him is through trades.

If needed you can Trade Block him if you do not want to read any of his messages however you will not be able to trade with him either

Thanks for the reply. I'll block him. I didn't know I had that option. Dude's racism hits me personally. Really, he should be 86'd entirely, but that's not up to me .Thanks for the advice. Good luck with your season.

I don't see anything racist in that message. There aren't any derogatory terms or anything like that. I personally have a good working relationship with him and he's never sent me anything derogatory. However like they said you can block somebody from sending you trades. Having grown up "in da hood" myself (Queens, NY) & also in the south (PC, FL) there are many different ways of speaking & depending on your perspective a southern accent or ebonics can be interpreted differently by different people. That's all I read it as. He is just having some fun as long as someone isn't personally attacking you or name calling, which I don't see (at least in that post), then IMHO no harm done.

You can make your own choices though. At the end of the day, he IS about the trades lol. I find Id rather use it to my advantage - IRL I'm sure many GMs don't get along, but they still do business for the betterment of the team. Just my thoughts.

I've been in, and still am, other leagues with him. I blocked him because his trade offers tend to be ridiculous, like 3 old guys in decline for your best prospect.

i understand and agree with much you have stated in your post...eventhough many owners in SimD do not care for Comptonz and some of his trading ethics plus other.....i personally have only made a few trades with comptonz over the years and i always look forward to rivalry battle with him whether in a WS conflict or divisional title ...i have never blocked Comptonz in trade and i accept his competitive nature......Anyways the biggest issues that owners honestly have with Comptonz is that owners pattern is normally to buy a team and only play for a few seasons then trade out youth prospects and picks for vets so the team can compete in a short period of time and then drop ownership of the team which is years away from rebuilding properly( game terminology is called "Locust" )

Awyays i feel that Comptonz is actually intelligent so with technology and auto-correct i have always felt that Comptonz spends more time typing
to make messages unless actually has an app program to voice assist in transferring his messages

I am relatively new here, since April. I don’t sense any racism. I think he is just assuming a character to play as his general manager. It is simfantasy after all
