Durwathi,Quoting George Orwell is all well and good I guess - after all, Hitler/Goebbels-style mass-hate demonstrations are all well and good in the name of free speech and right of expression if you happen to be a member of the majority. I'm not so sure jews, slavs, blacks and so on in 30s Germany were too keen on cheering on the nazis' right to hatemonger and beat people up, trashing their property and even killing them.However, WoW is NOT an arena for debate, OR free expression. It's a commercial venture, and freedom of whatever don't apply there so just forget about pointing at the US constitution/bill of rights etc. Rather, Blizzard themselves sets the rules, and rightfully so. The game is meant to be safe and enjoyable for everybody, including minorities that are often targetted by slurs - or worse - in society at large.If you disagree with this basic standpoint you're always at liberty to quit giving Actizzard your monthly tithe... :P
