Quoted from Aurich:
What's wrong with the country is lack of empathy. He didn't ask to be catered to, he asked if there was a feature to avoid having his picture posted in public. Apparently the answer is no, maybe JJP could consider it, because it's a freaking game, for fun, not a passport security station, and if your customers are bothered by it maybe let them opt out. All you people going IT'S HOW THE GAME WORKS, no it's not, it's a gimmick. When it broke at Expo the selfie was replaced by a logo, and nothing of value was lost, nothing was changed in the game, big deal.
I don't want my selfie on the backglass either, I don't blame him at all, I find that feature annoying.
Expecting an operator to change settings specifically for your special needs is not realistic. In fact I would say it is unreasonable to expect everyone to cater to you. It's a me, me, me thing which is so freaking common in this world it's pathetic (not pointing a finger at you LAW as I don't think that is what you were trying to do). Empathy is certainly not needed in something this simple and a very good solution was found that will allow LAW to continue to play the game in tournys and not have to miss out of participating because it bothers him. It sucks that he feels anxiety in group settings but it's something he has to be able to work around. Fortunately in this case it looks like he easily can. It also seems like he plays with a good group of people that try to respect his wishes as much as possible.
I'm allergic to peanuts and numerous other things, it's my problem to deal with, not others and I'm not going to walk into a restaurant or someone's house and make a big deal out of it. If it's not safe for me to eat I just politely decline it. It's not their problem, it's mine.
