So I got an HC vio for saying a word which doesn't even exist https://epicmafia.com/report/281003
As I understand, if I say now a word which is close to an offensive word (it rhymes or it has one letter flipped) then I get a HC vio?
I was wondering where do we draw the line here exactly? Am I allowed to say niger? Or is it also banned because it is really close to the n word? How about if istead of saying the r word, I flip 2 letter instead of 1? Is that also not allowed? Why aren't they filltered then, if they are not allowed?
It really amazes me how people actively compromise their integrity just to try and evade on a technicality when you know well enough that the person in front of you can see through it.
it is mindblowingly easy to just not try and say slurs
I do agree that the grammar is not correct, but that's cause English is not my first language, so once more, you are threatening to give me a vio because
1- The word is close to a Slur
2- The grammar is not correct
Like seriously, don't you see what I am trying to say? The word Niger is different with the N word in ANY context!! You can't just give out vios because a word is close to another word and you feel offended by it.
If you really wanna do that, then change the HC rule to something like
"Any form of severe or excessive hate speech or hateful language, or words which are close to slurs and being used in an offensive context"
Additionally, adding the fact that how the mod team feels about the context.
the spelling of the word does not matter when we look at moderating it. there are filters in place for those slurs for a reason. it is not possible for us to create a list of every possible way that someone could bypass the filter. if someone is using something that's one letter off from the n word in a context that's clearly being used as a way to bypass the n word (e.g. calling someone a country, which doesn't make sense and you would have absolutely no contextual reason to do so) then you're going to get a violation, because you're clearly trying to evade the filter
we've made several announcements that we show 0 tolerance for slurs regardless of context. this policy was put in place at the instruction of the site owner.
stupid is not a slur. the r word is a slur, and the word that universalstudios asked about is slang for a slur. hateful comments doesn't mean "mean word". not every filtered word in a mafia game will net you a vio if you bypass the filter. b*tch, c*nt, a/sshole, piece of sh*t, all of these insults will have 0 repercussions. slurs will have repercussions.
like i mentioned in the last post, it's a policy that the site owner himself has put in place
