Those ones really get me. On the other hand, when some insecure teenager insults out of the blue ... that's just hilarious.
Use the ? menu option (Customer service/ help) then the "request help tab.
Click the create ticket button and then select the appropriate category whether "report harassment" or "Inappropriate player behavior". Enter text about the incident including player name, etc.
Then click the create ticket button.
The game will then search the help documentation to see if a possible solution can be found and display some help text.
You must now click the submit ticket button at the bottom in order to actually submit the ticket.

Yes - it's a long onerous process

If you see anything offensive or ugly happening don't be 'to sensitive" - just put some distance between yourself and the incident.
In the online world this is known as "minimizing or switching tabs".
In the real world, this translates to if you see abuse - say a woman being told to stay in the kitchen - just walk into the next room and put your headphones on.

This is of course possible only if it isn't happening to you. If it's happening to you, then you can be sure everyone else is busy not being "to sensitive" and putting distance between themselves and what is happening to you so you should just put up and shut up and hope someone else is targeted next.

This way our society can improve tremendously - we get to turn a blind eye to what's going on and bullies and the truly offensive can flourish with impunity.

See no evil, hear no evil - isn't it a truly beautiful thing?

You make a point I have been trying to articulate for a while now. We should improve our society. Do people really think a hostile, pro-bully environment is an improvement over having compassion for people? I don't understand the resistance some people have to making the attempt to make the world a better place.

I can appreciate your tongue in cheek comment here....and I agree completely.

This is my opinion about the "grow a thicker skin, welcome to the internet" crowd:

A) They resent the reminder that they have been completely desensitized by their prolonged existence in the safe anonymous bubble of online gaming, never so much as having a blip of conscience when others act like racist, misogynistic thugs, so they lash out at those of us who insist EVERYONE be accountable for their actions, or

B) they are the actual offenders that darken an online community with their presence and don't LIKE to be called out on their behavior, or

C) they are lazy and don't care...until THEY are on the receiving end of abuse.

I think the majority fall under the first and last categories.

D) We have a thick skin in RL too and are quick to brush off any and all idiots that crave attention.

This proves my point. This attitude assumes that "Since I think this way, everyone must think this way."

Just because it doesn't affect you, doesn't mean the problem isn't real.

internet bullying in a nutshell: http://i.imgur.com/5pFah.jpg

On the internet, you can turn the computer off, or ignore the offender, or any number of alternatives. In real life, you can't necessarily escape a bully's torment. It's not really fair to make a comparison.
