Wow, flashbacks. Spent many hours of dev time on MUDs, hosted many MUDs on Pentium 90's. Hosted the official sites for GreedMUD, NeonMUCK, and so on.

He's right about the roots, the paths of logical progression and lessons past. The only thing new is the interface to the world.

Ironic that the NWN post just prior to this one was celebrating griefers. That's the cultural problem. A sizable segment of the virtual community are fine with griefers they find amusing no matter how they disrupt others.

Watch the Polygon videos, they're not griefer in the abusive, assholic sense the term is usually associated with. That's why I compared them to Conan O'Brien, who does similar smart ass shit with a roving camera and it's all in good-hearted fun.

So basically the lessons of applying tech fixes to 'social problems' (for want of a better word that would be printable) will as ever be ignored. Faster ban hammers then please. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

( PS.. I missed the Conan O'Brien ref as didn't realise he was supposed to be funny =^^= )
