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?
They vio you when it's extremely obvious that you're attempting to use 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
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.
The only thing that is an issue here is that mods should be able to review games with the filter turned off. @ Lucid
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 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.
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.
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.
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
