Okay I'm going to spell this out because this seems really, really hard for some people.

There are things that, if people told me in the context of a Survivor game in good faith, I wouldn't tell to other people. I wouldn't break their trust that way, because at a fundamental level I've understood what it's felt like to have something that was mine to tell get told by other people and have that taken away from me. That shit hurts, and I wouldn't risk inflicting that on someone else, even within the confines of the game.

If you're capable of doing that, even in the context of the game of Survivor, it still reflects on who you are as a person

Like this isn't every little thing, but there's a line and discretion that should be exercised that I'd hope everyone is capable of having.

This shouldn't be that hard.

Call me an asshole in game, sure. Call me one out of game? That's pretty shitty of you.


Again, how much do you believe in death of the artist?

The game does not work without at least the fiction of it in this case. Whether I buy it for literature is a different and irrelevant consideration.

Yea it did. People attacked juno the character but no one attacked Sens. You can tell because me and Sens chat on Skype a ton.

Juno was unremarkable. Sensfan agrees and is a real cool dude. Completely separate

Don't tell people in your game personal stuff you don't want others to know. I will gladly trade it for in game advantages. And you don't know if it's me. And if you think you've figured out its me, then you're violating the anonymity of the game in a way that is destructive.

Hey now, about 4 of these pages were people fantasizing over how they'd be edited
"CC is very [whatever the equivalent of photogenic as it applies to videos]" - racefan12
"CC is an objectively attractive person." - Crazy
"You look like a happy version of Trent Reznor." - LicketyQuickety
"Do you practice sounding like you're high all the time?" - xofelf

Generally speaking, telling people about other people's personal shit for personal gain makes you look shitty.

You can't pretend the social game doesn't exist. People will think you're an asshole, and assholes don't win (speaking in the context of the character you're playing, not you as a person)
