I could put it even more succinctly in a motto from a previous guild.

Don't be a dick.

Even with the supposed anon status that people like to hide behind, folks are starting to realize that they can't always be dicks and get away with it.

Just recently, an "acquaintance" in FFXI had his account hacked - presumably by someone who really disliked him with a key logger. He had all his "hard work" (possible gil buyer!) tossed away not only once, but twice in the form of the katana relic, Kikoku.

In Second Life, another friend is about to have her business snatched from her because she ran afoul of someone who was less-than-stellar in that he ripped a lot of her textures and is threatening to pass them out. Even worse, he claims to have her real life info. Whether or not that is true doesn't matter.. we shouldn't live in fear, but there are two sides to every argument, minimum. Just because someone is acting like a douche doesn't mean we should automatically turn the other cheek and offer them a sunny smile.

Dunno about all the items on that list. Generally its good, but I think what he really wants is Mature Hardcore players.

"Has a high sense of self esteem and confidence."

So you can be the nicest, most patient, most even-tempered person in the world but if you're new to the game and still unsure of yourself, he doesn't want you.

"Gives 110% effort in everything they do."

So casual players, again, no matter how well-behaved, are not welcome.

"Has an open mind and is willing to try anything."

That's not mature, that's a sheep. A mature person is willing to accept the responsibility that comes with not going along with every hare-brained scheme that comes along.

I think Ghen's list is actually a better one.
