I don't know many people that enjoy being screamed at. Being politely
told what they did wrong is one thing, but having players scream "YOU
F***ING MORON!" at a new player will likely just cause them to quit
and never play again. There are so many other games they can choose
where players are not allowed to do so they'll vote with their feet.
