Because that makes you a bully, you bully

Because retaliation contributes to the toxic atmosphere and makes it worse.

Believe me, I would love to just mute and move on, but when the hate isn't targeted at me and it's unwarranted, I get so annoyed.

shout at your monitor, then reply to them by typing in positive and uplifting comments about either their gameplay or how you guys can come out on top. Then vote for a surrender.

I know it can be hard not to retaliate when someone starts verbally attacking you in game. There have been quite a few times when I’ve had to force myself to take a deep breath in order to stop myself from sending an angry retort. And in plenty of those cases, I wasn’t successful in holding myself back. But over time I’ve realized that just ignoring that person and moving on with your game is always a much better experience. Sure it might hurt your pride a little to let their comment go without retaliation, but you know what hurts more? Raging at your team, letting your emotions impact your gameplay, hurting your reputation as a player, and despite all that, losing anyway. Also, just as a side note, remember that a Behavioral Alert is not a “Go to Tribunal Card.” It’s just a little nudge to let you know that hey, maybe you want to take a second to collect yourself and relax before jumping into another game. Hope this helps and good luck!

I feel a lot of people are missing the Chicago reference.

The problem for me is, I consider it a DUTY to spout sh*t back at the guy insulting me. In fact, I'm particular to telling people who are giving me sh*t to go and off themselves.

Invariably, that makes you just as bad as them. You /should/ consider it a duty to be a better person and just shrug it off. Yeah it sucks to get down-talked, but there's literally no reason to fight fire with fire. Instead, be smart and fight fire with water.

I get warnings fairly often without retaliating with angry or offensive comments. If someone yells at me for not initiating a fight as miss fortune, and I tell them that I cant, I aught not to be bothered by a warning about how my behavior is bad.
