Jokes on them for hitting on your female character! I report people, and annoy them on purpose, if they are the mean-spirited type. Some of the harassment is pretty serious, though, and shouldn't be taken lightly or as a form of 'having fun'.
True, and there does need to be a line drawn. Being "crude" isn't the issue, it's more of being degrading and making comments that would be considered racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., if it were said in a different setting; I.E. in person. Bullying.
This is true. I actually never reveal my gender in the games I play. The jabs are already bad enough without them knowing I'm a woman ;)
I also agree about group mentality--there needs to be more acceptance of differing views.
