Why are some maple kids such snobs?

I go to star world in winter, see 1 person there, ask to join him. He ignores me completely.
If we make a party he will have all the advantages, we will get our mob count faster and the spawn will obviously be faster and better for both of us.
But some maple kids are just snobs. What makes them feel so entitled?
With that attitude in real life they'd probably get b-slapped.

Share your thoughts, do you think people should ignore other people?
And, in case they don't want to party with other people- which is of course their right- should they at least answer said person? Maybe I'm in the wrong here. =)

I would not respond to you because I'm a NEET and I can't have an active chat conversation with someone I don't know.
Every time I need to make a trade or do something involving others I have to work up the courage to talk to them.
I get anxious posting on anonymous imageboards. Maybe he was an anxious NEET too?

Get over it.

@MuffinsINC: Yes, the situations are different, but the rules apply the same. If someone were calling me out, I'd respond, however long or brief that response may be. If I'm busy, I'm busy, if I have free time, I'll choose to spend that time helping a person out or use it as I see fit. When it comes to video games, it's impossible to respond to everyone, but in the situations where you are able to respond freely, it's best to do so, as if you were in their position and needed help, you'd want someone to respond to you.

Anyways, that's pretty much my little rant on this topic. There isn't really a right or wrong way of going about things online, but if we're playing an MMORPG, it's good to have a sense of teamwork and cooperation with other players, as I would like to assume that that is what most people choose to play MMORPGs want out of it. It's all about give and take and finding that balance, but yes, everyone is busy and can choose whatever route, whether team-oriented or going solo.

I'd like to clear up though, you are well within your right to think it might have been rude or anything like that. No one here should influence you enough to change how you think. But lots of people will think different things, so technically everyone is right in their own way i guess lol.

[quote=strauss08]If that is your question ("it only raised a question in my head about whether or not RL rules should apply for the internet or not, in terms of what's socially appropriate or not." ) , then no. normal rules do not apply. Everyone is at liberty of responding to who they wish to respond to, or act as they like. A lot of people have their own version of what's "socially appropriate", so that is why i say the attitude you think is more acceptable does not apply, specially in the internet.[/quote]

I suppose I should have phrased the OP better since everyone seem to think I've been so offended by it; it only raised a question in my head about whether or not RL rules should apply for the internet or not, in terms of what's socially appropriate or not.

@MuffinsINC I don't know what I can really say more about it. They were done and then sat and spoke to each other.
They didn't make any remarks like "why is this noob talking to me" or anything rude like but they ignored me when I asked them a question.
That's pretty much it. =)[/quote]

Sooo... You meet one guy and make a generalization saying that "maple kids are snobs." He could've been 30 years old for all you know lol. It's life man, gotta get used to it. In real life someone may not directly ignore you, but they might not be listening to anything you're saying or out right disrespect you. Maple, again teaches a life lesson. GG.

Honestly he should have responded to you. No matter what people say, whether online or IRL, ignoring people is straight up just rude. People keep talking about how he doesnt have to respond to you and I know what they mean and they're completely right; however, it doesnt make it any less rude.

People are so antisocial these days. Even in real life, even if im having a really bad day I wouldnt just blow someone off who's trying to make an attempt to talk to me. Id fix my attitude and respond to them like a decent respectful human being. I dont owe them the time of day but I know that it's the right thing to do. Im not a snobby little brat who feels like I have the burden of the whole world on my shoulders who endures all the pain in the world thus I dont have to speak no one. Ive grown to be a lot more mature than that cus it doesn't how bad your day is, there are still people who would kill to spend a day living your life. I dont know.. I just see that ignoring stuff as extremely childish and immature.

[quote=jlt2624]I know it might seem rude, but for me, a lot of the times, I'm in a bad mood, so I don't feel like responding. Or sometimes I'm too busy or off in my own world to notice that someone is talking to me, which might have been happening for him.
Like, in a game, you're not really entitled to a response, as callous as that sounds. Whether you get one or not, it's not really that big of a thing to get into a whole fit about, or at least make a thread about.
I also just feel like the term snob shouldn't really apply here, not exactly in this context. Not trying to attack you, just saying! Trying to give my opinion [/quote]

Personally, I like to zone out while grinding. Stopping to talk to someone takes me out of it.

@Nekiridaani: Oh well then he is probably like me and just ignores everything around him unless it's someone he knows or something that is interesting. ^^ I wouldn't call that person a snob, yeah it may be a little mehhh but then you should also know that there are many other channels out there and if he ignored you the first time, it was obvious that he didn't want to party up. ^^ Next time, try not to take offense and just assume that the person wants to be alone and not talk to them anymore.

Oh, thats a bit more interesting. I think it'd help a lot more if you added more context to the OP. I've made a lot of my posts off of the assumption that we knew next to nothing about the situation.

[quote=Renkotesu]It's common sense and common courtesy to at least give a response to someone trying to communicate to you, whether you choose to accept or decline what they ask of you. If this were a real life situation and instead of some random person, it was an employer trying to get your attention and you are actively ignoring them, you're be fired on the spot. At least when it comes to in-game situations such as this, I have the common courtesy of saying yes or no or whatever kind of response is needed for the type of situation I'm in.[/quote]

Well ignoring some random person on an MMO in the middle of the night is a bit different from ignoring your employer. I'm not sure why you even made that comparison honestly. Lots of people play video games as a form of escapism and as such act differently, some people choosing to ignore others is to be expected, especially when we don't know the situation of the quiet person.. Sure it's common courtesy to reply but that's not the point. Not replying doesn't make you a snob nor does it make you entitled. I reply to most everyone in every situation as well, but again, that's totally irrelevant and adds nothing to this discussion. As for who was in the right? Uhm, I guess the OP? It's hard to say due to this being such a small and petty issue where there wasn't really any conflict whatsoever. I mean, if he didn't want to party replying as such would obviously make communication easier, but saying nothing gets the same point across... albeit in a really ineffective way.

I guess... what I'm trying to say is that this is a really petty topic and doesn't matter that much. Sure, people ignoring other people sucks... but pick your battles. Letting stuff like that get to you just doesn't seem like a fun way to live honestly. (not directing this at you obviously, that was more of a general statement)

[quote=MSLovelyIdiot]Ignore the rude comments, they're not worth your time.

I see a lot of people afk at Star Planet, so he might have been afk?
On the one hand I agree that he could have said at least something when you tried to talk with him,
but on the other hand I also agree with the first poster.
Don't let such things get to you though,, because there are many other nice people [/quote]

It's not that they're not worth my time, it's just that some people either not read all the way or just not understand the point of the thread.

[quote=Nekiridaani]He spoke English, but that's not the point.
My point is, should it be OK for people on the internet to just ignore other people for whatever reason, or would it be considered rude as it would be in real life?
You wouldn't just completely ignore someone's existence if he asked something IRL, but do the same rules apply?
Guess I should have phrased it better and put it on chat, since this question isn't really about maple specifically. =)[/quote]

Well, first of all, the internet does not really have rules. Secondly, in real life, perhaps it's considered rude, but you wouldn't have a clue of why he doesn't respond, just as it is to know why he didn't respond on the internet (such as sulking, having a bad day, or just because it's personality-based). Thirdly, this doesn't make him entitled to anything in either scenarios, and I don't think you're entitled to any responses from him anyways-- it's for him to choose.

Honestly, if people responded, that'd be great. If they don't, then it's best to not worry about it. We all encounter the ones who prefer to keep quiet for whatever reasons.
