On Beggars and BeggingÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ãâæ

 

 

 

The Editor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We've all seen them, those dreaded words that send shivers down the spine of even the most hardened PKers: "phr33 5t0ph pl0x" or the all too familiar: "I got haxx0redÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ãâæ". There seem to be certain things that trigger these attacks on one'sÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ãâæ

Very good article as usual, keep up the good work editor =D> I don't see the end of begging too, but perhaps this article will make a few less perhaps.

Nice one, reminds me of another article a while back on cheating... Keep it up!

My friend you would not tell with such high zest / to children ardent for some desperate glory / the old lie: Dulce et decorum est / pro patria mori.

These 'noobs' are not people as such, they are soulless creations of corporate greed.

There is a big difference between Runescape and real life. Runescape IS fair. Everyone starts with the same opportunity; the same stats and same items. In real life people have inredibly different opportunites. Some people are born to a rich family, and are given averything they'll need for their whole life, and a lot more. Others are born to a homeless family. There is very little chance for anyone born poor to become rich, and very little chance that anyone born rich will be poor.

It's not just begging really. Though beggars are much more annoying then newbs asking for help(what level am I? where's lumby?), it comes from the same lack of understanding.

 

 

 

Beggars think they'll make money the fastest by being a parasite to others. They don't realise that this money making method is actually very slow and attracts thoughts of spite.

 

 

 

Newbs don't understand the game and don't know how to find out other than asking other ppl.

 

 

 

At thecore level, these ppl just don't know how to play.(I'm not trying to make excuses, but a lot of ppl wouldn't be beggars if they knew how to play)

an important and relevant article, would it ever be possible for begging to be made a reportable offense? as it forces me to have my public and private chat on friends alot of the time, and I now take off anything expensive before going into a crowded area.

my tactic for beggers is lie to them; tell them to turn on accept aid then teleother them where "they can get lots of money" i find lumby very fitting. THE place for noobs of all lvls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

however if u happen to have lunars on u then tele them to waterbirth island, boy does it annoy them.

I personally know a former beggar. He stopped because he gave up the game. He got a membership right off tutorial island and started beggin. I tried to explain how much he would be hated and that he's better off just playing the game. He wouldn't listen, apparently all he ever knew was begging. He never even finished his first month of membership.

I've been speaking to some beggars (also in real life) and they claim that asking for free stuff is when you say

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Free stuff please"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

what they do is say:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I need money"

 

 

 

"Give me your helmet"

 

 

 

"Give me money"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Its weird, they thing example 1 is begging, but examples 2, 3 and 4 are not. :?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, another great article from the editor. One day, we shall uncover his identity and kill h - Oops, been watching to much crime stoppers :-w

I personaly hate beggars... They make this game's community a lot worse... They're like annoying scammers....

Contrary to most people here, I sdon't think this was a partcularly good artcile. It seems to comprise mainly of a rant against bggars, the kind of thing that wold normally be locked even in the Rants forum...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This, coupled with a sloppy writing style makes me think that either the Editor has had a bad week this week and thrown it together in a fashion, or that someone other than the 'regular' editor has written it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, but below average compared to some of the other artciles I have seen here

Yes, there have been better articles in the past but I don't mind a few going astray sometimes when there's little else to discuss.

 

 

 

By the by, I think it's been stated that there's more than one editor..

It wasn't stated, it was proposed that it could be a possibility by Kiara Kat in the topic that is currently doing the rounds entitled 'The Mysterious Editor' at the moment. But yeh, its possible.

I personally don't see any problem in people complimenting me on my items, it's flattering, but to each their own I guess.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am bothered by beggars though, because my green party hat draws a lot of attention sometimes. But the thing is I'm not rich because I bought the party hat last year when it was cheaper, and I find people with more gp than me asking me for help. :shock:

my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.
