  1. wow, thanks for the quick response, king!
  2. hey king, this is king, why're you so great?
  3. Oh yeah absolutely, go for it. I wasn't really sure where to make this thread, to be honest. I agree completely with what you have stated though. That's a very legitimate concern for public chat, there will always be people out there with negative intentions, and I think those people should definitely be a concern for moderation. I am very much in agreement with your statement on discussing anything in private messaging or clanchat and I'm glad you mentioned it.
  4. I absolutely agree that we have made a decent start, I remember briefly discussing this with you during my P mod training. My issue is that it shouldn't depend on who is on, rules shouldn't be subjective to a person's opinions. Further, concerning the song lyrics, I think I may have given off the wrong idea by using a song as an example. I'm not at all suggesting that we give a "free pass" to anyone who claims to be quoting a song or any other piece of entertainment, I was simply using that as a means of showing that we as a community should really do a better job at judging these things on a case-by-case basis, based on the context of the user saying whatever. If you quote a song and you're being outright offensive or hateful, it should absolutely be punished, but if you're just talking and happen to throw around a word that has, in the past, been considered offensive, but in a non-offensive manner, I don't believe it should be punished, as it honestly doesn't break any rules.
  5. Rule 3 is stated as follows[1]: Now, this seems like a great rule at first glance. A rule that goes as far as to put a halt to any racism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and religionism. And, in fact, it does that. It does all of those things very well. Unfortunately, though, the line that dictates any of these things appears to be very much so up to interpretation, which, while good to an extent, has caused toxicity and raw censorship due to the extremes that are constantly being imposed by Nerd's staff. Nerd has the most severe stigma towards the word "gay" that I have ever seen. So much so, that people who have been playing for years absolutely freak out over every single use of the word "gay," or any other potentially discriminatory phrase, even in the most non-threatening and peaceful way possible[2[. If someone on one of our servers were to simply express, "I'm gay," it wouldn't even be out of the realm of expectancy for that user to be banned. At all. In fact, I have anxiety about including that wording in this post, simply due to how I imagine people in this community will react. I have spoken to several staff members about this. Most recently, an anonymous staff member says that he or she would "rather not people be quoting such words or anything" in regards to my outrage towards multiple admins who freaked out at a mod for quoting a song lyric. The song lyric in question was absolutely not in a hateful context. The (mis)quoted lyrics[3] in question: Admin 1: "NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY AND[sic] WHAT YOU DO" [And of course there was a missing line here, "When I'm alone, I'd rather be with you"] Admin 2: "FUCK THESE OTHER" Admin 2: "UM" Admin 2: "**********" Mod: "niggas" Is this vulgar? Absolutely. Is it hate speech? Absolutely not. In no way is it hateful towards any ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or religion. To go back to the anonymous staff member's quote, "rather not people be quoting such words or anything." So, that member seems to be against the mod quoting what was quoted. I, personally, don't feel that what he or she would "rather" have matters at all. I think what is written in the rules is what matters, and what is written in the rules states that there is to be no hate speech. I don't believe that quoting this love song could possibly be misconstrued as bigotry or hate speech. I don't want to continue rambling to the point of losing focus and destroying potential for a healthy community discussion, so I will conclude with this point: I feel as though the current disciplinary actions and interpretations of rule 3 are quickly leading into a 1984-esque censorship that will continue to cloud over the Nerd servers until something is done. Anyways, I hope I didn't jump around too much. I would like to open up to discussion at this time. 1. http://www.redditpublic.com/wiki/Rules 2. http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/lapfoxtrax/images/c/ca/Gay_Deer_World_Takeover.png/revision/latest?cb=20150629163850 3. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/childishgambino/3005.html
