HC vio33

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?

You're not allowed to say any of those things

They vio you when it's extremely obvious that you're attempting to use a slur

My point is, where do you draw the line. You can't just give out vios because people say imaginary words. For example, you want to vio me if I call you drater? It's an offensive word if you read it from the back but makes literally no sense. I am just wondering where do you want to draw the line, you can't ban just every word because it is offensive if you flip it.

This topic is not about if I deserve to get a vio or not, it's about to find out the red line of getting a violation because HC has "Zero tolerance"

Any variation of a slur is a slur

The line is whether you're trying to find a way around using a slur or not

Change your vocabulary to match more acceptable words, such as "stupid" or "idiot," then you won't get vioed

it becomes pretty obvious when you use the word Niger in any context other than it being a country

It's one of the dumbest rules on this site (and this site has a lot of dumb rules). I believe I once got viod for the word "nagger" (a synonym for instigator, provoker, annoyer, etc) used in an innocent context

Where do you draw the line? Imagine if vios were given for saying "you are a lime" when it's obvious they said something else that was captured by the filter.

I also have a HC vio for using the hard R. Unfortunately, if you actually do type the word, and you spell it correctly, it won't be a vio. Why? Becuase there is no proof that's what you were typing because it will be changed into a fruit.

But if you mistype the word, you will be viod for it. It's quite ironic that's how it is - i agree. but, none the less , If you use the word its a HC vio no matter what context its in.

i believe what you're missing here is context.

payamcf, why were you saying "imaginary words"? That's pretty weird. Unless you obviously meant to type it a certain way. You know, like you corrected yourself so the filter *would* catch it.

The only thing that is an issue here is that mods should be able to review games with the filter turned off. @ Lucid
Idiot is literally a slur, but thanks for playing.
Is the term "rere" acceptable?

I strongly disagree with this. Like the example I gave, flip the letters of a slur, that's a variation of the slur (obviously unless it is an Anagram), but it is not a slur. How would I know which words I can use, do we have a list of allowed words? Why is stupid or idiot allowed?

The rule says:
"Any form of severe or excessive hate speech or hateful language based sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, mental capabilities, and other personal circumstances"

So technically saying, being stupid is a personal circumstances.

You think so?

"You behave like a Niger" are you sure what the context is? Can you read that out?

Obviously saying "You behave like an American" wouldn't get me a vio.

I understand, my only issue is, how do you define "mistyping"? Is it up to 2 letters? 3 letters? Would different position of characters also be mistyping?

Tbh, you can't expect people to not use this "fruit" mechanism for fun. I really think it's a stupid thing and should be removed.

Ok I can correct myself, non-existing words. I say it, cause they do not exist in the English dictionary. From my point of view, "asldjalsdjalisd" has the same meaning compared to a word with is close to the R word but has 2 different letters for example.

I wouldn't get a vio if I say:

"You are a asldjalsdjalisd"

but it seems, you do get a vio if the non-existing word is close to an offensive word, which I find rather unreasonable.

My suggestion is, to create a new rule "bypassing filter", that should be moderated by itself with its own rules. Moderating these words under HC does not make sense.

bypassing the hateful comments filter to say the hateful comments word ends in a hateful comments vio

shocking

you’re going to get a racial slurs vio if you keep trying to push the “Niger” thing

you didn’t even use it correctly grammatically, “nigerien” would’ve been the word to use there, you’re clearly intentionally using in a way that’s similar to the n word to make a point

it’s VERY easy to tell if someone is trying to use these words legitimately vs using them to filter bypass

if you’re using a country name that is one letter off from the n word as an insult in context that does not make sense and is grammatically incorrect you are going to get a racial slurs vio because it’s clear what you mean

evading the hateful comments filter to use a slur, even if you misspell the word so the filter doesn’t catch it (which is literally filter bypassing), is against the rules and will result in a vio if it’s clear that you were trying to say a slur
