    Alright, it's time for some real talk. We need to define and understand the difference between shit-talking and trolling. Trolling is the act of starting an argument for the hell of it or being just plain disruptive or annoying. Shit-talking, on the other hand, is what occurs when there are facts or jabs being thrown in a competitive manner. Not a personal attack, but purely competitive. If you want to see shit talking, you should see what @summoning and I went through circa 2011 when our rivalry got heated. It was never personal or ad hominem, purely based on what we planned to do throughout the course of the game. The funny thing is that despite all the garbage we flung at each other, we came out of it with mutual respect for each other.

    That said, @jesse89202 did not make his original or subsequent posts with the intent of starting a flame war, nor did he do it to troll or harass @Sub0's-Icy-Balls. Jesse called Sub0 out and posted a screenshot of a message that was sent by Sub0 on PSN. Jesse didn't break any rules by doing this. People post PSN and XBL messages that others send all the time and it's not a big deal, so long as they aren't being obnoxious about it. Nor did Sub0 break rules by sending that message as PSN and TYM are separate things and our rules do not apply on there. @dubson initially started down the same path as jesse but eventually went past the line and was warned for it. In case you are wondering, no warnings will be issued to EITHER party in this case.

    Lastly, if I may just say this, and I am speaking to everyone who plays on MKAK ranked and takes those ranking scores seriously... THEY DON'T MEAN SHIT.
    Seriously, I sit back and read all these posts about rank from everyone and can't help but laugh sometimes "1300 player" and "1800 player" and "2000+ player." With all the hacking, cheating, and rank quitting that occurs with lack of penalty, what does it matter?? Anybody who plays MK2 seriously knows who the top players are, and they sure as hell aren't Mike Girard and his dozen accounts ten times over. We don't need a flawed ranking system to determine that. Anyone with common sense can figure that out and formulate their own objective rankings. I've said this many times before and I'll say it one final time. If you really want to know who the best players are and find out where you truly stand, the only way to know is to play offline. Come to a tournament and prove your skill.

    As far as Jesse and Sub0 are concerned, play a 20 set with your best characters, random or free select (I could care less) and then find out for yourself who crushes who. Just keep it out of the good games thread, unless you intend to give legit praise without the snide remarks. Squash your beef with each other in the game where it matters, not in here.

    If all else fails and you can't stand a particular user on this forum, use the ignore feature.
