The mods deleted my "R Word" thread23

YHWH14mon 27d

Someone among the PC lobby of EpicMafia deleted my thread petitioning for the right for users to use the R word. So, here I am, recreating it. The original thread was maybe 2000 or 3000 words long -- I'm not wasting your time or mine by reformulating the initial appeal.

Please vote in this poll if you think we should be allowed to use the R word on this site / on the Discord.

Commentary about PC culture, censorship, tone policing, etc etc should follow in this thread. I will leave you all with this note: early EpicMafia community (myself included) all came from 4chan. The 4chan /v/ board is what took this site off the ground and contributed the most to early EpicMafia culture. You can even see a headnod to 4chan by Lucid where >greentext is included in game chat. Old school EM allowed all kinds of freedom; we already won back our right to type $hit in game and I say it is time for us old school EMers to keep demanding more freedom.

Relevant EM policies:

Hateful Comments

Hateful but non-racial slurs fall under this rule and are moderated with a zero tolerance policy regardless of context. Racial Slurs and Hateful Comments vios are combined for suspension/ban purposes.
