Here are three different and acceptable solutions of how this should have been handled.

#1 - IGNORE: could have been ignored by neurionb.

#2 - COMMUNICATE: nerurionb could have sent him a message saying "Thanks for the game. I thought it was a good game and I enjoyed it. I feel bad that you felt the need to diminish my play with an offhand comment about me cheating. I don't cheat."

#3 - VENT: neurionb, if really offended, could have used the Report Abuse. we would have looked at it and thought "stupid comment by the other player" but doesn't warrant action. still, it makes the reporter feel better.

those would have been the correct options. here are WRONG actions:

#1 - CALL OUT: posting about it in the forums (granted, he did it in the least offensive way possible, but it is still frowned on)

#2 - FIGHT: starting a messaging fight

 

i hope that helps clarify :) we all just need to remember that the internet is a bunch of people. some make good decisions, some make bad. but we should still act our best. my opinion at least."
