Give gamers more freedom over how, when and whom they play with and problems like this fade away.
Don't ask me - ask the 250+ friends of mine that all make up Playstuff.net
It's endemic on the Xbox360 gaming sites and forums - and it's coming soon to PC.

As game companies try to shut down our past freedoms to run our own, independent dedicated servers - to enjoy games we have all paid good money for, people will come to feel more and more lost - small fish in a big sea - on the gaming net. Ad hoc forums, set up by enthusiastic gamers - and populated by their friends new and old, will always be the finest examples of real 'old school' community on the web.

As an relatively old fella in the PC Gaming world, I've a clear idea of what constitutes social gaming nirvana. Pretty simple; Freedom, Friendly Respect and a presumption of goodness. The rest is dealt with by the fact we're humans and have social skills - when forced to use them.
