You know the AFK Reporting is really abusive now. I report people who talk offensive and violate the terms of service by using swear words and racial names (Like the N-word), and all the little kids do in return is Report me AFK in the Battleground when I am not. Now, I get kicked from Battleground and have to wait 15-minutes for doing the right thing. Is that fair Blizzard?
The AFK reporting should really be fixed so people aren't kicked when they are really at the computer...
How do the little kids know that you are reporting them for their bad language and behavior? You should not be saying anything back at all to taunt them, or this happens. Just report it and continue playing. Or leave the BG if it is that bad.
Sadly this is part of interacting with other players. My solution is to turn my instance chat off when I play pvp (the larger bgs) like AV and IoC... Simply avoid the annoying kids by ignoring them is my best advise. After all we pay to play, not to babysit offensive and spoiled brats.
A couple of points:
1. If you weren't afk, and you actually got into combat, the debuff would be removed. You have around 3 minutes to remove the debuff, so it's not an unreasonable amount of time to get into combat.
2. UNLESS you ARE using vulgar language, their reports don't matter because Blizzard checks logs. If you are using vulgar language, the reports are justified and you should stop.
Being at the computer means nothing... the afk debuff is a misnomer and should actually read "non-participation". You don't participate while the debuff is on, you get kicked.
If they removed this option, bots would be an even bigger problem. So stop using vulgar language, and start participating.
