    Hello everyone! We all use the internet, and by we I mean the millions of people who connect to it daily.

    With millions of people weird things happen.

    Tell everyone what are some of the weirdest things you have experience as well as some of the worst, scariest things.

    Lets be creative!

    Sigh, it would have to be eBay.

    I bought something from a big power seller on eBay once but the item was no good, so I left him negative feedback after he ignored my messages for help. In addition to being a buyer, I'm a seller too. To get back at me, this guy bought out all the items I was selling at the moment and then after I shipped them out, he left me negative feedback for everything even though I gave him perfect service and made sure the items were delivered safely. He was obviously doing it to spite me.

    I contacted eBay and worked with them for months, spending hours at a time on the phone. I was guaranteed I'd be protected from any malicious bidding activity. We proceeded to force a return from him with the idea that he would return my items, and I would refund him, and the transactions would be canceled like they never happened. Yeah, well, so much for that.

    This grown man actually went out into the woods, or his garden, or wherever and ripped some leaves + branches off trees, put them into zip-lock bags, and shipped that back to me for the return. WTF? Needless to say, I was livid. I felt like this guy was doing whatever the hell he wanted because he was a power seller with tons of sales, money, and experience and I was the small guy.

    I ended up contacting eBay again but they couldn't do much for me. They decided to refund me the price of the items, but they could not do anything about the negative feedback - even though it was clearly done out of spite. So basically he got away with it. He got what he wanted, he ruined my account (I could technically be considered a future potential competitor since we sold similar items) so I had to start a new one, start over from scratch.

    All in all, it wasn't the money I was upset about, but rather the injustice of the whole situation.

    There are some seriously arrogant backwards-thinking hillbillys out there with an internet connection, so be safe out there guys.

    I would have to say all of my years playing WoW had to be the worst. Too much drama in that game. The community was always horrible and the only reason I continued to play was due to my RL friends playing with me. Needless to say I have stopped playing wow a few years back.

    My worst experience online would probally be running into those youtube videos posted by 12 year olds titled like "Tr1ksh0T5 g1T rk7" where all they do is swear.
    Makes me loose faith in humanity.
  6. When I was playing ESO, I was doing satire, some guy reported me, and then I got a warning. It's stupid.

    Most encounters with people in the League Community are terrible.

    I've had people ask to see my armpits on stream before as well which was pretty weird. Apart from just sexist and rude comments thankfully most of my online experiences are good haha.

    My weirdest experience online actually forged me into a better person.

    When I first joined the PVP scene in SWTOR. I wanted to become really good at the game and when you first start out in a competitive scene where there is actually a small enough player base that you start to know everyone in it.

    However, me becoming a regular PVPer was not going to happen on their watch because I was so bad compared to them.

    I was bullied and harassed. I would have random people telling me I was trash. Once someone offered me 1,000 USD if I would delete my account, I of course declined. It started getting really bad and I almost changed servers to get away from all of it. However, some light shone at the end of the tunnel as I actually started to get better at the game.

    However, around this time I had someone tell me I should kill my self and they meant it. The fact that someone wanted me to never have been born or for me to just end my life over a game shocked me.

    It is really sad that people are that serious about a game that they would bully me for playing it regularly and trying to be competitive.

    However, as I stated at the beginning this made me a better person. Whenever someone calls me a f*g on CS:GO I just tell them to have a nice day. I really don't care about the scum bags online who have no decent social life.

    I am now a competent player in SWTOR and have earned respect for my self however, I still get people telling me that I'm bad =3

    I guess I learned that what other people think of you doesn't matter and that if I follow my passion, try hard and shake off the haters that I can be successful.

    If you or someone you know is being bullied I wish the best of you and volunteer anything I can do to help you.

    Good luck out there my friends and stay safe!

    When I was like 10 someone convinced me to give them my password on Runescape.
    They ended up stealing my account. And my Rune skirt. I flipped out. Especially since I had just beat that one desert cat quest. Luckily for me I also had access to my best friend's account. I convinced the theif to give me my account back by letting them onto my best friend's account.

    After I had my account back, I watched as the person locked my friend's account...

    And she never knew why she couldn't log back in.

    I was a shitty friend.

    I still live with the guilt... This was the moment that damned me to hell.

    As for the weirdest. It's hard to come up with just one. I grew up on the Internet and lived in complete isolation in the middle of nowhere so I don't get phased by much. And I am actually the cause of a lot of the weird.

    But probably the weirdest nights was when I was trolling people on Omegle one night in high school.
    When I went onto Omegle I would do one of two things. I'd either dress as a guy and weird people out that way.

    Or I'd lower my camera, so all you could see was my chest. And whenever people would get aroused. I'd lift the camera to reveal me wearing the mask of the kid from Mad Magazine.
    Once it lead to some guy getting naked in front of his friends and doing the dances I told him to do.

    Even now, just admitting to my high school life makes me cringe.

    I really ought to get a life...

    I've been gaming online for at least 20 years now, and I've seen a lot of weird, though none of them stand out as being even more exceptionally weird than the others.

    As for negative experiences, the worst for me have been when I try to run MMO dungeons with complete strangers and they know every fight but I don't because it's my first time there. I almost never get a group that is understanding and is willing to offer advice. The sad part about that is that I need very little in the way of instruction, all I need is "stay out of X, make sure you move to Y when Z happens and expect W stage to require intense group healing." Give me that, just my own portion of the job, and I'm golden. I did enough high-end, server first, competitive raiding in the past that I'm only looking for basics, no matter the game I'm in.

    According to my son I am a "squishy care-bear type" because I try so hard to be nice to everyone, and can easily get my feelings hurt when others are rude/mean with me. There is absolutely *Nothing* in the gaming world that terrifies me more than failing in front of strangers and not living up to their expectations. Which is why I end up so lonely in MMO's, because unless someone in my family plays with me I can't muster up the "oomph" to join groups on my own.

  18. Worst I've ever had is just deadbeats on eBay.

    I used to be not so nice back in the very late 90s early 00s with AOL chatrooms and a little program called Sub7. I feel bad about doing it now, but back then and at that age is was exciting.

    Thats the worst! When I used to do raiding in SWTOR some people were really nice while others were just toxic.

    I have two stories.

    1: Trying to book a train using Spain's national rail service's website is the worst thing imaginable. The website is so outdated, I think Bill Gates used it on his first computer. It's slow, lags, and has too many broken links. To add to the pain, to register a ticket on the Renfe (the name of the rail service) mobile app, one must have an account. Not too bad, understandable. But one needs an account, with an active and working credit card, and a purchase made with that card, on that account. ... Listen, I get that you want to be secure. But that's just clunky and bad.

    2: I found a skiing forum (skiing is my life outside of gaming) a while back. I was looking for tips on freestyle-focused ski gear. I found a post asking about poles. The forum's community ripped apart this guy. "Nobody here uses poles, go back to the bunny hill" "Ask your mom about poles" "Just kys". Stuff like that. I have never seen such a negative reaction to a question.

    Well, those are my worst experiences! I enjoyed reading everyone's stories.
