    I was present. Racism whether in a joking manner or not will not be tolerated.

    It was only a temp ban if I recall correctly. The admin was using the name "Based" so I am not familiar with who it is.

    It's not like he used it in any derogatory way. Ban him if he starts cracking jokes where the punchline is a race and it is offensive.

    I always hated this rule because it's been bastardized into some random meaningless bullshit. Nobody even considers why they are kicking or banning them.... just robots. I'm sure if the point of the rule was to remove people who type certain words on a list it would be much more effective to just write a script that does that for you.

    Or we could just stop using racially charged terms in conversation.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    disambiguate the rules to reflect that, then.

    "Players are expected to be mature and respectful at all times. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, etc."

    Is this rule ambiguous?

    you cant seriously expect admins to know every quote or meme or study the background of why inappropriate things were said

    Where's our meme curator when you need him.

    In all seriousness though, the tempban was fair in my opinion. I know everyone might not believe what he said was offensive, but our rules are clear in that we don't allow it. Plus it's one of those things that will fall to admin interpretation, and everyone might not handle it the same. Still though our rules are the rules, please refrain from using that kind of language on our server. Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure this rule is deliberately ambiguous if you look at how it is worded. It's why I don't really like the rule. It gives too much rope to the admin who goes around looking for trouble. On the other hand, I can also think of a lot of arguments to keep it that way.

    official verdict: yolo tbh

    I hate political corrections as much as anyone but allowing words that are commonly perceived to be racist and offensive just generates a bad atmosphere. Now there is a difference between simply saying something racist and actually targeting somebody with it but at the end of the day, people are coming to our server in their spare time, hoping to have some fun and are most likely trying to get away from the shittyness of the real world for a few hours. The last thing I'm sure they want to see is some random guy saying racist crap in allchat.

    Yes it was me who issued the temp ban. Not sure about any where else or anyone else, but here in the UK the 'N' word is still a very offensive word, and I personally despise it, there's no need in any situation you find yourself in a game to use that word.. so don't.. its vulgar.

    Theres no need for this, racism is a sign of immaturity, don't be immature. Just follow the rules, and play the game.

    @ReapersPr0digy as you liked the above quoted post I want to mention that such 'script' actually is a part of PR. In case you want to bring something in to a discussion:
    Code:
    # PROJECT REALITY BAD WORDS KICK
    # Edit this setting to enable the PR bad words kick system
    # The bad words are defined one per line in the mods/pr/badwords.cfg file
    # Default is disabled
    PRBADWORDS = 0
