Since I'm probably getting banned for asking this in-game I thought I'll take it to the forums instead (I've already been threatened of mute / ban because of this question). How does the racism rule work? from what I've seen you can get punished for using racist slurs (like at all even without context) which I see as totally acceptable, although I'd like to be able to discuss the words ingame without any sort of racism involved but it's understandable why it works this way. What really boggles my mind though is if you acknowledge that this word exists you're being "racist" which I just see as ridicolous, is this really how it works? Or am I misunderstanding this? Why is homophobia and objectifying women allowed? From what I've seen words like fag faggot etc is allowed, I've also seen that talking about women as if they were objects is allowed. Why's that? Shouldn't this also fall under the "discrimination" category? Also, sub-question, is this even allowed? Today I was warned for using the "fag" word while an admin 5 minutes before said "fag" and a guy has "fag" in his name. Why was I warned for this if others can use it without any issues? If someone can just elaborate a bit on how the rules work, how strict they are etc that'd be really nice, since I don't want to accidentally get myself banned (already got banned once because of this) and I want to be able to follow the rules as good as I can. If you're going to redirect me to read the rules. Here's what the rules says, just to clarify that I have read them: Racism, Discrimination, and Hate Speech (top) This is not permitted on PlagueFest.com. Any posts that we consider to breach this are subject to removal by our staff should we deem it appropriate to do so. The result will be swift, no warnings, just an immediate ban.
