Concerning afk-ing and flaming

This is how i see it: _**AFK**_-ing because someone else did something bad to me never made any sense to me... Regardless if the problem is in the chat or in the game, you have to remember one thing: while the jerk will likely lose you the game, in the process he's in danger of losing his account too. It's a great trade if you ask me... With that in mind, i see no issue with not afk-ing. And no! i don't keep tabs on thir opgg history. I don't check progress every few days. I move on and forget they ever existed. The boards posts of other people doing the same things, coming to complain about their punishment are enough for me! And since i don't keep the names memorised, some of them may well be the ones i encountered. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} As for **_ FLAMING_**... I hate to break it to you but **there's no such thing as self defense in chat**. You're not in danger from people's chat and typing back doesn't protect you from anything. The only thing in danger is **your ego**. Muting is the actual self-defense. and for those of you who like to compare the chat based shoving matches with real life violence... > [{quoted}](name=The Djinn,realm=NA,application-id=ZGEFLEUQ,discussion-id=EmiM7pZW,comment-id=0000000000000000000000000000,timestamp=2018-07-06T15:04:31.119+0000) > While I *absolutely* encourage you to fight back if someone throws a punch at you and it's the best way to deescalate the situation in the safest way for you, **League isn't a fist-fight**. You're not in any danger. All being a jerk back does is mean there are now two jerks, one of which started it and the other of which feels the way to "win" is to be the bigger jerk. You're not in any danger, there's no prize for the biggest jerk, and it just creates a worse environment for everyone in the game. {{sticker:fiora-cool}}
