What makes a bad word bad? {WoW}

Feb 1st 2012 4:06PM @noyou

I have never seen such a clear textbook case of being over-dramatic as what you've just said.

"Sure, you can say it was garrosh being garrosh towards sylvanas. Or you can say it was blizzard choosing a word and saying, "hey man, it's no big deal to drop this in there." "

So let's say you're watching a movie set in 1930's Mississippi. One of the characters is a member of the KKK, and he uses a derogatory term when referring to a black man. Do you consider the writer of that movie to be a racist because he chose to let that character say that?

"If you truly think words don't make a difference, and people are too sensistive (I'm speaking in general now, not specifically to Maymer), drop the f-bomb continuously at work or school; go to an area where there's a high African American population and drop the N-word. go ahead and see what happens. "

I don't understand what you're saying here. If I think someone is too sensitive, and that words don't make a difference unless you let them, and I go and attempt to provoke someone that, to my belief, is being too sensitive how exactly does that prove me wrong?

Being loud during a movie is a terrible example for what we're talking about here because that's unavoidable disturbance. If I was able to simple stop hearing, and seeing any action a person was doing in a theater, then why should the action they are doing that I can no longer be affected by in anyway whatsoever be illegal?

These are words. If you don't like it put a person on ignore. If they go around the ignore to continue harassing you, then it should be against the rules. People feel they have some special right to stop anyone from doing things they deem "offensive", and frankly that's just unacceptable behavior. If someone is not causing you direct inconvenience, or direct harm, then you can ignore it, and protect your delicate little sensibilities.

Feb 1st 2012 3:13PM Because people are stupid. Garrosh is a head strong brute, yet him calling someone a bitch is a slap in the face to everyone with sensibilities somehow.

I imagine people complaining about Garrosh's words would also complain about a racist character in a movie using racist words. It's a character, and it's in their character to be that way.

Feb 1st 2012 3:10PM 'It's now very common to hear people say, "I'm rather offended by that", as if that gives them certain rights. It's no more than a whine. It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. "I'm offended by that." Well, so fucking what?'

- Stephen Fry.

It's true. People feel like if something somehow offends their sensibilities, then they now have the right to crusade against you until you are no longer able to do whatever it is you were doing any longer.
If you're offended by someone's language learn to be an adult, and stop taking everything you see an anonymous stranger say online as if someone's burning a cross in your front yard.

Feb 1st 2012 2:53PM I've never even heard of any term used solely to describe female character armor let alone something as stupid sounding as "slut plate".

Sounds like something that was maybe uttered once before, and that blogger took it like some kind of actual household derogatory term.

Feb 1st 2012 2:50PM I dislike the idea of any policy that stops people from saying certain words. I don't care about having an optional mature filter if you have a problem with your kids playing, or something, but I don't like the idea of being able to get banned for any amount of time simply for saying something.

If you want to be a dick you should be able to be a dick. I don't really care if someone calls another person a name in game for whatever reason. Just put that person on ignore if they're offending you. If they get on another character to harass you further after the initial ignore, then that's when a ban could be issued.

The idea that some words are worse than others is just a stupid one. What is the difference between the word "butt", and "ass"? One is worse than the other, but they mean the exact same thing. If they mean the exact same thing, then they should both be bad words.

Jan 28th 2012 12:15PM What's the deal with that new Lor'themar story?

I mean I guess it's kind of cool that we get some new lore on him considering he has just been sitting around doing nothing for the longest time, but I really don't care about what he was doing in the time span between BC, and the launch of WOTLK now that we're almost 3 expansions away from that time period.

Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 11:34AM Is everyone in these comments actually serious right now?

People are honestly just looking for something to be offended about. The chat filter has been relatively untouched since the beginning of the game, and people are just now noticing this. If it's taken you this long to realize it I highly doubt it's some conspiracy by someone at blizzard to put down gay people.

Jan 24th 2012 9:47AM The mysterious pirates in azshara. They were tucked in some canyon on the southern coast, and they had a quest to protect them from several waves of naga. The quest didn't give any experience, or reward, and was repeatable. They even had a sunken ship off the coast with some crew still on it protected by magic air bubbles.

I believe that ship is still there. The pirates are all gone though.
