Y'know, what really pisses me off is Blizzard temp and perma bans people on the forums for foul language, myself included. Yet they use foul language and sexual references in game and at Blizzcon. What is that all about?Personally I don't have a problem with bad language, what I DO have a problem with is the blatant double standard.Blizzard un-ban your customers please and thanks. Nobody likes a hypocritical jerk.(Please don't downrank this guys, I feel like I have a valid point here. I'm not trying to stir the pot, I'm just really annoyed.)

Blizzard doesn't take any action for "bitch," or really any other word in its general category. The language policy is much, much more lenient nowadays than it was in vanilla. You have to go straight-up vulgar or f-word level stuff if you want to get suspended.

People find all sorts of different things offensive.If I went to church and starting using the word "Bitch" , I'd probably get asked to leave. Right?With that being said, is "Bitch" a foul word or perhaps do you think its subjective?

I don't feel it's particularly out of context in a video game in which you spend 95% of your time committing indiscriminate murder, no.

I totally agree. Also a game in which most of the player are young adults, the same set of rules should be applied to the forums.My point is that I've said much less or equal to the word in question, and been temp banned which ended up leading to a perma ban due to the infamous "penalty volcano". It's all perception really..My apologies for my little rant, just being vocal on something I find quite odd and a little bit unfair.
