    that particular word is generally grounds for an insta ban according to the tos which you agreed to when you opened your accounts.

    so its your own fault stop whining.

    EA needs to learn the definition of a word.

    And I dont whine...I have a life outside of UO....do u?

    NONONONONONO: Im not going to go that far. This isnt between me and you. Im juts upset over the lack of concern the GM had.

    Ive played the game for 4 years...never paged on anyone for any reason. If I dont like what they say...I block em.

    People should just mind they own business.

    I dunno...who got banned?

    I got a 48 hour suspension.

    Whos Next!

    : Before this gets all outta hand. Im an easy going guy. Anyone who has talked to or played with me on atlantic knows how I am. Im not an ass. I just think this was taken a bit too far. I wasnt speaking to any individual or playing char. I think this was taken to the extreme.

    How about I page on everyone that I hear use a curse word? I f'n hope they get 48 hour bans.
    AT this point I think I will report any degrogatory comments, sexual, or offensive. Im just gonna report it to be an a$$hole like the rest of the commnity.

    Just quoting you, there:
    I don't really see the question.
    The precedent is there; plenty of people have been banned for using that word. You used the word, and were banned.
    Your use of the word, regardless of context, was indiscreet. in a manner that was readable by anyone in the area.
    Unless you were talking to the monster, though the subject of the statement was a monster, it was directed to a person. Otherwise... Why did you say it in the first place?

    You might want to take a step back.
    Because you are whining, a little, and generally not sounding particularly easy-going. And, to be honest, like a bit of an ass.
    Not trying to insult you, or anything... But you're coming across as anything but what you claim to be...

    I'm just going to comment on a flaw in your logic, before I report your post for RoC violation.
    What good is a block button, when you can only block someone's offensive language, after they've used it?

    That's all ;)
  9. The r-word defines an action against another individual at the least. Think of the context IRL and you will realize the ToS is quite accurate. Still, no sympathy.

    What part of saying it seemed like a good idea, or made you feel cool saying it in the first place?

    hillbilly, while i agree that the word is able to be censored and should be allowed, it is not. i was at brit bank with you when this happened and after you said it the first time, someone told you that you could be banned if someone paged... what did you do? you told them to page and continued to use the word. what more can you expect?

    R-word posts have been snipped out. As I said in another thread, it isn't allowed here either and with good reason. Most understand this, if anyone does not, please feel free to email us at [email protected] and we'd be happy to explain it clearer.

    The "GMs dont know how to read TOS" thread has been snipped as well and merged into this one.

    My apologies for this interruption, carry on. :)
