This may seem like a weird topic and poll but I'm curious to see the variety of jerks in this community. I know not everyone in this community is an "a******", but then, not everyone is a nice guy either. There are various types, with varying amounts of severity. Sometimes, the littlest gestures, even in real life, can rub people the wrong way. For example, someone ahead of you doesn't hold the door open for you, thus letting it shut on your face. The person didn't have to hold the door open, but it would of been a nice gesture and polite. The same goes for saying "GG" or "Good Game" at the end of the battle. It isn't required of anyone, but is a nice thing to do. Some of you may not care or see any importance in that or anything of this, but I just feel that sometimes we all get so distracted by winning and being the best that we forget to show good sportsmanship and have fun. You'd be surprised at how many people don't say "GG" or give any positive feedback at the end of a battle. It's kind of sad. Even I admit that I was sometimes not a good sport or even ended up rage quitting.

I was just inspired to kind of "discuss" this after watching a few videos on youtube. I won't specify any of the videos or give any links because I know I will get my head blown off by the people who don't like the youtuber or don't want me "advertising" the youtuber. Feel free to share any stories you may have from personal experience. I got none.

Most people on Gfaqs are not competitive battlers

After a battle I always send a "Nice!"

Even if I was destroyed or I beat them, no reason to be pissy about it. I've lost plenty of times to luck, but hey, a battles a battle. :p

I'm polite if the other person is. Its true that so many a******* get mad because I get a crit, or that I am using a "cheap" strategy (some guy said am a s*** battler for using and sweeping his crappy team with a breloom lol).

I don't actually battle myself, but I have seen my fair share of jerks and sportsmanship on other online sites.

Here? I wouldn't really know.
