I was just kicked from the BF10 Server for saying "jig" like as in a dance. A jig can mean patterned assembly too. What the hell is the BIGOT DEFINITION?
I understand the need to police offensive people, but punitive censorship is a lazy way to do it.

And fag can be a cigarette, nigga can be used as bro in certain parts of the U.S, cunt can be used as a friendly greeting in Australia.

People try to circumvent the language enforcer daily, jig is a racial slur to describe black Japanese people. Nobody is being lazy, simply we are trying to ensure people don't come play and get called racial slurs.

the auto admin usually kills someone then kicks them....
you were making fun of someone earlier and said their name or whatever was code for F A G..... so the auto admin killed you...
if you hadnt done that, then the auto admin would have only killed you for saying jig instead of kicking you

I'm going to put it out there that censorship is the essence of tyranny.  As I understand the need to curb blatant abuse, undermining our language in doing so is a perversion. What represses some represses us all.

Yes, I did say F... A...  G...  explaining to someone why they were killed for bigotry because they couldn't understand why the word they'd used was bigoted. That is why I said F A G.  That is how I was killed for the first offense. This is exactly why computer automatic policing does nothing for the conversation. I can' t explain to another gamer why they are being offensive, so in essence censorship doesn't help.

I know that community policing is preferred to automatic computer. Perhaps a !Votekick would be a more adult solution?

Jane Addams, one of our great lesbian foremothers in America and one of the most important activists the U.S. has ever known, a founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931, was adamant about the importance of free speech in times of war and peace.

Dude, chill. This is a video game. What tyranny are you talking about?

The rules in place have worked for us for nearly a decade. We are not changing them. If someone has a question about why they got killed they can use the command !rules

People try to bypass the filter all the time and get banned from it. I've learned to think before I use a particular word. There are several words in the dictionary to get your point across. Cuban knows I'm not shy about telling people what I think......and he has talked to me about it before. Lol. I still don't understand why you can use almost every cuss word but not cunt** As far as I know there is no racial rhetoric with that word. Please discuss and inform.

"kent" is on the list because our fem-bots are offended by it, it's a universally detested word, perhaps even more so in the states. either way, there's very few of them around and it does make the game atmosphere more pleasant for them.
the antonym of that word disagrees heavily.

kent also circumvents the game word filter.

I'm chill!. Just saying that classifying known words as bigotted that have a normal meaning, like the word "JIG", is preposterous.

I might also add that some long time players have been banned recently for? They don't hack so... There is also talk in game about the lack of population combined with the bans that is weighing on MIg's awesome reputation. I hope we can get those players back in.

CUBAN: could you please post a list of the words that will get you killed/kicked/banned please. I would like to understand.

Teknopwr,

Wait, MIG has a reputation?

and any words with the following letters or numbers used in any type of combination,  will get YOU banned.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0

Enjoy.

The fact that someone would ask for or need a list of words to refrain from saying or calling someone to keep from offending or being discriminatory towards a person of a different race, religion or sexuality as yours says a lot about yourself. The rule is simple, don't be a fucking douchebag that NO ONE would want to play with, and that rule works well for us and our players come here for that among other reasons. If you have any trouble understanding this, just keep this in mind, this community is for EVERYONE, NOT for YOU and even though I don't think you would be the kind of person I would enjoy being around or influenced by in real life doesn't mean we couldn't have a good round in BF, unless of course you missed my point in the beginning of this reply, and that is the reason we have such a rule in place.

The internet is a huge world of possibilities, if you vehemently oppose this rule I would recommend exploring your other options within the vast world wide web..

we are not bots. behave as you would with real people.
we all make mistakes, and if you slip, or make a bad joke (you saint), you will be given ample opportunities to rejoin. don't even have to be a member for that.
i think the admins do a great job of keeping the servers clean from cheats and undesirables.
despite all that, a lot of the cheaters and problematic people manage to spoof their way back.
it's mostly dealing with the same people, over and over again, and i would not be playing here if our admins we're not so good at their work.
that, and all the great people that frequent the servers.

Bizzle, while in game tell me all about the "JIG" you're building in your woodworking class, or the little "JIG" you did when you won the match. The word Jig will get you auto killed/kicked. The whole reason for this discussion is because at some point the book burning needs to stop, especially when words that aren't nefarious in nature are being banned.

If it's that important to get your story about the "jig" out, go write a fucking book, no one here cares! This is a  game server, not a chat app for teenage girls.. Grow the fuck up, if you don't like it find somewhere else to play, period.

Can't we just play video games? Whatever happened to voice chatting instead of text? If you said Jig on TS no ban, no kick or nothing

Come join the fun on TS instead!

I think I was close to being banned once for saying "nj gg" at the end of a round (as in "nice job, good game). I typed it once, got the racial message, then typed it again because I had no idea why it nailed me the first time hah.

Guess what? I didn't make a forum post about it! I just haven't typed those four characters in succession again, and I've had no problem since. Must be Science!

My friend who made over $100K in profits on it, calls the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies “intelligent gambling” and that it’s all driven by wild speculation with no real substance. He has since sold all his positions in cryptocurrencies
