Unless you hang around 13 year old kids, remarks like that are rare. We mostly go for enjoyment nothing really that competitive - the whole point is to chillout after all. Sometimes we're playing completely different games, from SC2 to MMO's. We just chat while we play, have drinks.
Of course at home we play each other online, but its the difference between chatting over the phone with a mate compared to going out for lunch with mates. Its more enjoyable in person.
Also if you go to a Gaming Internet cafe chances are they'll have good connection. The one i go to has 50 meg line so no lag whatsoever.
Not sure where the farts come into this. Either you go to an internet cafe in some run down part of the city with Obese men pretending to be a 10 year old kids online or your friends (or you?) have severe bowel issues.
Once again dont confuse internet cafe with a gaming internet cafe. Theres a huge price difference and as a result different kinds of people go there - at least thats the case in London.
