@Splityourballsonafence It wasn't trashed, it was moved to the other quotes thread. One is for inspirational quotes the other is for server and fake quotes. If that quote inspires you in some way, go ahead and repost it along with an explanation of how it inspires you. Otherwise it is off topic.
I voted yes as I feel what you're referring to as racism isn't actually racism. Context matters. I wouldn't consider use of the n word racist by itself. Now if someone is getting targeted then that's just harassment, in that case it wouldn't matter if "racist words" were used or not, it's still harassment and should be treated that way.
In a perfect world, someone would snap their fingers and immediately, nobody would get offended by anything. I think using racist words is fucking dumb if you're doing it for no reason, so I don't really care. If people are getting offended though, I think it deserves some attention. I don't think full on censorship is the way to go. I partly believe that if we continue to censor words like this for these kinds of reasons, we just give those words more power and never move in the right direction. That being said, I've never been on the receiving end of blatant racism, so I can't truly relate.
I don't care one way or the other, but I do think that if it gets out of hand and someone is getting truly offended that it should be stopped.
I don't think people are actually condoning racism and hate speech against people of a certain color or whatever, i think that most of us just live in a day and age where words can't really do any damage or harm, but if its being spammed constantly i can see where u might feel offended
its kind of like me saying "haha 9/11 was hilarious guys allahu akbar" and then people asking "should terrorism be allowed?" most people will vote no obviously,but also nobody saying it would never say it outside of the game or do anything racist in society haha
Words are just words and some of them offend some people and they're not necessarily racial slurs. If we're actually debating to censor some words then I say censor all of them. Anyone who swears or says something someone else doesn't like should be banned cause it's only fair that either they're all okay or none of them okay. Doesn't sound too good does it? I haven't encountered anyone who says nigger and other racial slurs in a hateful manner and obviously not as a joke, AND be a sensible player on our server. Its always the trolls and assholes that occassionally hit that T/F button or 123 button on CT and pretend it was an accident just to piss off others. So I don't see a reason to put these few words on a pedestal since they can be used many ways that don't even offend or harass anyone so it'll just be a source of more drama. Just take care of the individual cases of people being dicks and the problem's solved. I'm personally perfectly fine with using any word in a comedic or any other way as long as nobody is being targeted and feels harassed. Offended is fine lel.
@ws informed me of your resignation. I'm also told the Discord itself was deleted (rude). I tried removing your forum rank, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The puppy eyes, siwanator bow, palm on cheeks, and the shoulder shrug...
