When I first started the game, it all seems like a happy world, no such thing as drama. I’m not good at writing so bear with me. I have too many thoughts on this topic.
Once a while I would come across players who think they’re the only person in the game. But such players quit soon after because they made a bad name for themselves, so not a problem here.
Now that I’m in 75 and involved in a Sky LS, I begin to see the real evil side of the game. Since my Lineage 2, Japan open beta days, I always thought of Japanese players as honest players. But in FFXI, slowly I come across JP players who would insult and make fun of you. These players are in their level 70s so they will probably be around for the next few months/years.
I am fucking glad no member in my Sky Linkshell behaves that way.
I don’t agree with people when they say this is just a game. However, I do not think we should get overly pissed with other people because of what happened in-game. HNMs will always respawn to be fought. EXP lost can be regained through a few fun exp pts (unless you hate your job, but if you hate your job, why play?). It’s not like getting MPKed in-game will cause your real-life lifespan to shorten a few years.
Anyways, a little JP tarutaru /cheered me when I was soloing Olavia’s escort quest. My chat log was moving fast so I missed it >_<. But I appreciate that little emote. Small simple things like this makes the game so much more enjoyable.
It seems to me that some players become selfish and hateful because of other players’ actions. Which is why I will offer help to anyone that needs it, hoping they would understand that not everyone are bad people and learn to be forgiving.

I want to take this chance to present to you something Mahatma Ghandi said: "An eye for an eye only makes the world go blind."
