Corporate censorship ABSOLUTELY makes no sense. It'd make more sense to actually make a ship and call it 'censor'.
In any case, I understand your plight, even though there are bigger worries in the world - I am going to rant about something equally, or maybe even
more petty, but the source is the same; corporate greed and confusion about what's right and wrong, because corporations don't have souls or hearts,
so they can't make proper decisions for the good of the people, only try to follow the leftist confusion about what should and what shouldn't be part
of free speech.
I can think of many similar incidents that have happened to people...
- In a game where the F-bombs, talking about 'surprise bedroom fun', drugs and such are commonplace, everyday thing that's everywhre, all over the
place, someone got muted for weeks for, after playing for hours, in the heat of the moment, saying something like 'How can you (referring to the whole
group) play so stupidly?". F-bombs all over the place, no one gets muted even for a second. Insults rampant, 'you are a failed abortion', etc.
Constant 'autist' and 'troll' accusations everywhere.. not to mention, really bad grammar.
- In another game, someone wants to say 'get the flag', but accidentally makes a typo in the hectic situation (who among us can be expected to type
100% accurately in hectic situations?), and leaves out the L. Gets banned from the game.
- In another game, where it used to be possible to /spit on someone and such, those possibilities have been removed
This censorship agenda is such madness; the ACTUALLY evil people are let do whatever they want, even if it means wrongfully groupstalking and getting
someone automatically banned by the system, because 'a big group is never wrong about an indivcidual' seems to be their policy, and 'once someone gets
a ban/mute/whatever automatically, their policy is now to never remove it'..
..and the innocent people, who never curse or insult, but might be a bit enraged about the inbuilt unfairness of the game(s) and rant about it a
little bit, will get banned, muted, etc. for weeks and such although most of the time, their chat is pure, clean, encouraging, helpful, and even
grammatically correct, while the other entities in the game just spew evil, toxic hatred towards everyone, especially the more civilized players - and
they do this without any filter or limitations. It's like a group of tiny demons attacking you with their full might, and being given cookies for
doing so, while you will be locked in prison for daring to react to their vile, toxic verbal vomit.
I really understand your pain and experience, I've been through similar crap so much, and I can't understand why the corporations can't get it right.
Just mute and ban the VILE people that shoot that poison into the chat and other people, especially consistently - and don't ban or mute some innocent
player just because they justifiably once in their life or after 8-hour session, used a word like 'stupid' (they could've said so many worse things).
This seems to be impossible for corporations to grasp; that there should be ACTUAL JUSTICE about what they're doing when they're wielding power over
people and players, who just want a good gameplay experience and who have no agenda or wish against other players, except to kill them in the game,
but not to hurt them or insult them verbally.
Such is this world, expect this from every single game corporation from now on, and worse.. there's no justice in games, and if you try your best to
be good and then lapse in momentary frustration after a long losing-streak, you're going to be punished for it, even if you behave better than an
examplary human being for 99% of the time, while others are toxic a-holes 100% of the time, AND curse AND insult..
