The Shame in Filipino Online Gamers?

I have always been proud of being a gamer - specifically an online gamer - but have always been hesitant of admitting that I am a Filipino gamer.

Before my fellow Filipinos start bashing me with their usual Pinoy pride, please allow me to explain why.

In my long years of online gaming, both locally and internationally, Filipinos have always been generalized to be rude and obnoxious players and are the number one suspects whenever there are incidents of scamming and cheating in-game. It's not something that bothers me when I'm playing a locally distributed online game but if I'm in the SEA server, it's like an arrow to the jugular.
