Are you fucking kidding me?
No, seriously is this some kind of a joke?
1) Where do you get the right to tell people how they can or cannot have fun playing the game
This policy is designed to target those that aim to ruin other players' experiences, in other words, to restrict those that aim to prevent others from having fun. The policy will not curtail anyone's fun. Besides, we're considering hosting an "anything goes" area. Players that wish to team kill can have their fun there.
As for where we "get the right" to implement rules
as we see fit, that right would derive from creating, owning, and operating a server.
Let me reiterate by saying this whole thing is absurd, this is not a problem the admins should be dealing with at all, this should be dealt with by the player getting fucked with, honestly if you were so butthurt about getting killed that is fine and dandy just remember the name of the guy you got owned by and don't play with him or at the least avoid him.
And in addition to avoiding other players, there is now another option- lodging a complaint in the "complaints" forum.
This will be abused, and it will even be abused by people who do not even know that they are abusing it, what do I mean by this? Well picture this situation, I am playing on Very Hard and some guy gets downed and he is surrounded by 3 zombies, what if I don't save him? What if he reports me and tells his own version of the story where in "reality" there was only 1 zombie and I just left while he was on the floor at 20% virus gauge, hell what if he died due to a huge misunderstanding? The point is it will get to the point where people will start getting banned for really minor things.
Bans don't occur in a vacuum. Banning is a volitional action that can only take place at the behest of an administrator- either the_fog or I. Obviously, one complaint, or even a few, is not going to lead to a ban. But several persistent complaints from several different users over a sustained period of time would lead to banning.
3) What if I get sick and tired of some guy trying to teamkill me or using items? Am I not allowed to have him taste his own medicine? Do I have to sit down and take the "abuse" while thanking him?
Here is the beauty of the term "reasonable basis." If another player is team killing, wasting items, or acting in a hostile manner, you are under no obligation to help, because I'd say that's a "reasonable basis" for declining to act, wouldn't you?
In closing, there will be a place for players that wish to team kill or work against the other players, but the administrators will not tolerate that behavior in the "normal" area. If you wish to team kill, waste items, or choose to never help anyone else, you can do so in the designated area.
Finally, show some restraint. There's no reason for you to throw a tantrum here.
