I for one am a crusader against censorship and political correctness, as ironically it doesn't do anything but promote racism. If we could laugh at our differences and not be offended, I'd say that would be the only tolerant world.Anywhoo, the point of that intro, is that I don't think my guild does really care, as everyone including my non white GM laughs at all the racist, sexists, dead baby, anti-Semitic, animal cruelty jokes I make in /general during our raids. I constantly poke my GM for being non white and Muslim, he always makes fun of me for being Slavic and usually imitates Borat when he speaks to me.Feels good... :D

Two things. First, there's a difference between expressing one's beliefs, concerns, and/or making a sociopolitcal statement, and being an ass. Second, WoW isn't the platform for expressing one's beliefs, concerns, and/or making a sociopolitcal statement. It ain't about political correctness or censorship. It's about shared experience, leisure time, and NOT BEING AN ASSHAT.

"Two things. First, there's a difference between expressing one's beliefs, concerns, and/or making a sociopolitcal statement, and being an ass. "In your mind maybe, not in the mind of many other people I know. I believe the best way is a sledgehammer against the face of whatever bothers you."Second, WoW isn't the platform for expressing one's beliefs, concerns, and/or making a sociopolitcal statement."Really? I'm more inclined to say everything is a platform when you don't respect social norms. "It ain't about political correctness or censorship. It's about shared experience, leisure time, and NOT BEING AN ASSHAT."What am I doing if not sharing my life experience with you people in general expressed trough humour? Not like it's a RP so I'm breaking the 4th wall.I know, thinking outside the box is very hard :[

If World of Warcraft weren't a privately-owned venture, your arguments against censorship would be more valid. Besides that, just like real life, you have the right to say whatever you feel, but people also have the right to react any way they want, including being offended and sticking you on their /ignore list.

I have not seen a wrath of an GM so far, and I am fully aware some people will put me on /ignore, I wouldn't have it any other way. Makes sure I don't have to deal with sandy vaginas :D

Unfortunately, what you're describing isn't some form of straight-talking freedom of speech kind of thing at all, CvijaFaQ. The whole point about being careful about what we say is respect: you clearly don't have the amount of respect for other people required to give a crap whether or not you say something totally offensive to them.Which makes me wonder: Maybe this is a defensive mechanism for you. Are you so bad at interacting with people that you've basically just said, "F*** it, I'll just be offensive and not care. It's their fault for being offended!"

So, CvijaFaQ, you get pleasure from insulting people? It gives you a sense of power over them? You're a bully. Bullies have NO RIGHT to feel proud of their actions. Ever.

CvijaFaQ isn't a "crusader" against anything. He/she is simply an attention whore and all of the things he/she is claiming to say/do in-game is nothing more than "Hey everybody! Look at me!" In my experience, this is a sign of somebody who has accomplished nothing in their life, and probably never will, so they are desperately trying to get the attention they so desperately crave using the method of "if I can't be respected, I'll simply be hated".

Ooh you're such a rebel! I for one admire your bravery in totally disregarding anybody else's feelings, sensibilities, or sensitivities. This world would be a much better place if we could all act like idiots and justify it as taking a stand against censorship.

It matters how you behave because you set standards for yourself and stick to them. If your standards happen to be below the threshold of tolerance for the server, and the server is an actual community, you'll be 'greyed out' in-game pretty quick, too.
