GameSpy and Flight Simulator X

Posted on Tue, 06 Apr 2010 16:32:19 GMT

GameSpyOn any give day go to game spy and look in the free flight lobby and what do you see? Kids badgering each other. I have gone there only to ask a question from someone. I ask my question and I am bombarded with threats and insults with out knowing who these kids are? One would think that Game spy would have some sort of moderator in there? They do not, apparently? This is only giving a frustrating experience to new comers to on line flight.

Another common problem is the disconnection issues that plague this on line portal. Game spy should know that this is a problem but seem to be ignoring this issue! Here again another frustrating experience to the new comer. I have written numerous emails to game spy, but they have fallen on deaf ears. I would think they would be interested in the threats and intimidation to children that is going on, One parent that I know of is taking this to the next level but did not elaborate in detail what she plans on doing about this situation. In my humble opinion, there is not much that can be done as long as game spy keeps ignoring the public on these issues.

Contrasting views are welcome!
