Is chat now being moderated?

Postby exploited » Thu Jul 16, 2015 3:30 pm

Just out of curiousity. The other day I called Spider a fag**t, and now it says [redacted - play nice ex]. Which is cool, if you want to moderate the chat, that's your business. However, I was under the impression that there has been a long-standing agreement that chat isn't a moderated area. I would much prefer if that continues. That way, if I want to call Spider a fag**t, there is a place to do it.

Franz used to moderate chats on the old forum. It was among the many grievances against him. Knowing spider he probably cried about a f**k CHAT comment and got his buddies on the mod team to remove it.

Perhaps they removed it under the auspices of it being hate speech. Spider compared it to saying the word "nig**r" after all. So this is humanitarian censorship, I think.

Well they let you call black peoples shrieking monkeys in the past so I don't see how that applies.

And by "black peoples" you mean Saz. Let me also say that the entire thread is awesome and worth the reread.

chat is part of the site and has no different rules than any other section. I don't know why you thought otherwise, but you are mistaken on that point.
