I find it hard to take the word rape in game, although I hear it on a daily basis. Mainly the reason for this is because I have been and it was not a nice or pleasant thing and I would not associate that word with a violent act against anyone. I think there is a much better choice of words that can be used. Often, I will privately whisper someone in game to ask if they have ever been raped and did they know what the word can mean to some people. Most are apologetic and try not to use it again in my presence or when they do, they will say "sorry".

I meant that I would not associate that word with any event in a entertainment venue. I misworded my post.

For the sake of a good PuG, I will often ignore the use of the word rape, or another hot button of mine "retarded." I am a Special Education teacher and have a niece with autism. But as long as the words are directed towards the mobs and not just spammed in my chat, I will ignore them. If however, they become directed toward another player (even one of the opposite faction) I will explain I do not appreciate the use.If worse comes to worse, I can allow the perp to die (I am a healer right now). If it continues, I have no problem leaving group.
