Hi all.

I think the Summoner's Code initiative is really in the right spirit.

Unfortunately, it does not fix some underlying problems.

If the law declares that killing another person is illegal, punishable by death, your motivation for not killing someone should not be "because it's the law" or "because I want to live" but "because killing is wrong."

That is, if someone agrees not to harass another player but really does not understand why it's wrong to be mean to another person, I think the law-abiding forum-poster badge will have the potential to just be a meaningless facade.

I have other thoughts about how labeling the community according to this code could go wrong, but the above is the main point I wanted to make.

Overall it's good to know Riot wishes these moral standards for our community, but something akin to tragic that it has to be spelled out with the reason for acting kindly to another human-being being "because your forum posts are clearer and you get a gold star."
