I don't give a fuck that it's you in particular, I give a fuck that you're making the world a shittier place to inhabit, especially a place I give a fuck about.

I get the point of the thread, but I think it was doomed from the topic that chose. Doesn't mean it's a bad thread though! Just that there's obviously some tension in the air and people tend to air that out with stupid posts or something. Least that's what I tend to do sometimes on good ol' GameFAQs nowadays.

People seem to not care about shitposting in the thread of a mostly good user trying to help out. I guess ignore them. I believe some things that were said here were productive.

the rules may say it's not allowed to post content which is racist but can we really not see the difference between having a dubious sense of humor and being... actually fucking racist?

Just gonna post my opinion on this topic. I know devonin disagrees with me on this, but I don't think any word is inherently racist or otherwise offensive (i.e., people who use a historically racist word, not in a racist context are not being racists by using the word). If I were running the show, I would certainly use a bit of discretion around these words as they are not always used vitriolically. However, I do not run the show, and it is the moderation leads' opinions and mandate that any usage of any slurs/racist/homophobic/transphobic/etc. words is an immediate ban. While I may not agree with it myself on a personal level, I will abide by it and enforce it as an MP mod myself.

Should posts be removed?
This is not free speech. By using this forum, you agree to abide by its rules, however much you may personally disagree with them. Not all posts that break the rules are removed, but some that are particularly nasty will (I know some/most of you didn't see Travis' post, but the ban and post removal was definitely warranted as it was genuinely transphobic).

Should users see what caused a ban?
Because this site's policy is to remove posts that explicitly violate its rules, full transparency isn't possible. You don't get to see the juicy context because making it available to you defeats the purpose of its removal in the first place. As a community, we need to trust that bans are deserved, and bear in mind that there is an appellate system as well if the banned user doesn't feel in fault.

I've heard the exact opposite from like 99% of all members of historically oppressed classes I've ever seen give an opinion about this. So you're not just disagreeing with me on this, you're disagreeing with the impacted people who are saying "No, even in a context you think is not hateful, using that word is hateful to us" which, of course, you can believe all you want.

Re: word filters

Word filters don't solve the problem. Sentences have context and it's pretty dang obvious whatever offensive word you're using.
For example, if someone said, "Go back to (country) you (censored word)," it would be painfully obvious what the censored word would be based off of whatever country the person listed.
Does it prevent us from seeing the word? Yes. Does it prevent us from knowing what offensive remark was used? Not likely. Does it stop the offender being a bigot? Nope.
How hard is it to avoid a handful of words from a language when there are thousands upon thousands of other words?
