People were bringing up good points. If you're going to disallow 'coon' because it's sometimes used as a racial slur, then you have to ban ALL words that are also racial slurs. And why stop there? Why not ban any derogatory homosexual words? And all words offensive to women?

It's ridiculous

Good luck being politically correct with an international server hosted on a planet of around 200 countries with almost 7,000 known languages.

Saying the word "coon" is bad now? Who even uses that word anymore? Might as well censor the word "Jap" too.

Holy crud. Why don't they just ban chat in general. Trying to be politically correct is just stupid and dumb. Of course, IF it IS meant to be used as a racial term then the person using it is stupid and should be able to show the world how messed they are....But if it's not being used badly like "hey, I leveled my coon to level 99999999," then it should be ok lol. Oops, I just said the word huh lol......More evidence why official forms suck and MyMMOGAMES rules!

EDIT: Lol end small/randomish rant.

Oh, the irony.

Here's an good example of using language context to determine what is offensive and not, and ironically proving your point. Using "gay" in that manner where the state of homosexuality is used as an insult, synonymous to having a "bad attitude", is discriminatory. However, using "gay" as a term for the mere state of homosexuality, as a fact, is inoffensive.

tl;dr version:
Your earlier post here was offensive to homosexuals because you used it as an insult.

Even more notable was the fact that you tripped on a sexual orientation discrimination faux pax while commenting about racism.

Okay, from now on, let's use each GM name to represent a different curse word.

GM_Loki = F
GM_Chaos = B
GM_Raven = A
GM_Nero = C
GM_Grimm = S

Mobius is too cool to put there *_* that and I didn't feel like thinking of more curse words

Not just homosexuals. I f'in HATE when people use 'gay' as an insult. I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle.

Honestly, you just sound ignorant when you say it like that
