How to turn a fun game into a competitive battle

I was on BZFlag for a few minutes today, and one guy genoed his teammate on accident.

He then said "lol".

That simple phrase set off an argument about whether laughing at your own mistake is ok or not. I was for it, Evil Bob, an administrator at the server, was against it on the grounds that it means your a cheater or an intentional tk'er.

Here's a screenshot of part of the argument. I'll get some more up shortly.

Update: I accidentally deleted the rest of the screenshots, so they won't be forthcoming. Oh well. See if you can get in touch with Winny and ask him for the server logs if you want the rest of the conversation.
