Please refrain from using a homophobic slur to rant like a child about losing space credits. CCP will reimburse it.


Please be kindly informed that our glorious Amarr empire will punish those caught spreading homosexual propaganda by stuffing them with dildos shaped in the forms of our most pointy-shaped ships.

Dear Internet,

Pleas stop being children and SJW's about gd words. There are many things in this world to enjoy, and getting side tracked b/c someone uses a word you don't like is rather idiotic. This game being one of them. Now, since some other idiots in this world want us to not be able to enjoy it, we are stuck here talking about it, not playing it. And yet, instead of commiserating with us, you decide to police OP's words. Here's a tip: Not everything said is meant the way you want to take it, and not everyone treats words like a child and is 'hurt' by them.

Thanks.

Dear some of the smartest people to have played a videogame,

I'm going to convince you in a measly paragraph how a targeted slur against a class of consenting adults can totally be used in different ways. Because there's isn't only just one usage of the word, there are many! Some of these uses are completely benign, and spoken by kids while they eat ice creams and skip along on rainbows.

Thanks Salteris. Thank you for educating me on how not to be a child.



Here's a thought for you. Feel free to use the slur, if that's your thing in life, and I will feel free to continually and repeatedly tell you to shut the **** up.

And some of us are actually gay and some of us have been on the receiving end of physical blows while said word was being used in a not so nice manner. So while you may compare me to some whinny feminist word policeman I don't give two damns about your right to say the word that's fine.

But being a belligerent jack off is going to get you called out for being a moron for using language. So forgive me if you think the word *** means bundle of sticks. To others it means prejudice and pain. Not that that means anything to a person ignorant of the world around them and can post without any consequence over the internet.


Roll You want to talk about prejudiced and pain? Let me tell you a story:

In the 4th grade we had a mentally handicapped kid in class (I don't even remember his name). One day during recess a 'friend' of mine ran up to me saying, "you have got to see this." I was dragged over to the corner of the playground where a couple other kids (including some girls) had him cornered. He was whimpering and standing off against a wall. Once there, the kid who dragged me there said, "OK, say it." All of them started chanting, "Hanes, hanes, hanes." The kid started crying and pulled down his pants. My last name is Haynes. That 'show' was as much for my humiliation as it was for his.

Do you know what I learned then and there? Yeah, words hurt, but it was up to me to decide to be the victim or simply above it all. I'm not being 'a belligerent jack off,' I'm simply saying, "You can and should be better than a word, or how someone chooses to use it."

Down again here, TX via Time Warner Cable. Since the poor tech guy based in the Philippines told me recently I have one of the top 10 connections and speeds in my area via TWC (which ain't saying much considering it's U.S. speeds and connection reliability, he asked who did I have blackmail info on to keep my interwebs at this level on my pricing per month...) thinking it's not on my local end.

I'm thinking another serious issue.

Honestly though, even before the last 24 or so hours, been getting a ton of Disconnect problems for about 2 months. Been told by Support Ticket paraphrased, it's you not us. Ummm....

This Rookie is starting to have trouble swallowing that reply without some effort and a serious chaser to get it accepted.

Dear Hamsters:

Pleez fix, more than the DDOS crashes.

Thanx, Rookie trying to stay playing the free for all of EvE.

Don't want SP. Don't want days added to my month on the free. Don't want anything but the only downtime being the routine once per 24 hour quick down and back up and playable. Just wanna play game.

'Game Ethics and Morality Monitor' I remember promises.

Snark at 11-24/7/365.25. Overshare? Yup.

Yes it's my fault. And if you don't staap it I'll do it again. ;-P

No you can't has my stuffs OR my SPs.

Profanity is not the issue. The issue is the use of slurs which carry strong prejudicial connotations and which are often intended to cause emotional pain.

Yea but people can sensitive now days. We live in a society where peoples identity revolves around their race or sexual orientation so when you make fun of that it crushes their whole world.


How terribly stupid you truly truly are. Sexuality is but a small part of a persons life and while you think all of us gay people are pink pride wearing whiners some of us are military veterans, blue collar workers, teachers, parents, and REGULAR people. I don't need your acceptance and I sure as hell don't need your armchair psychology on what makes up peoples lives and what's important to them.

You don't know a damned thing about me or anyone else who's posted here so I'd recommend you just keep quiet and keep your ignorance to yourself. Or am I shattering the entire world around you?


Being gay is fine. Going bat s*** crazy because someone typed something that you have decided is going to offend your delicate sensibilities is not. Lock it up.

What I'm saying is people are very sensitive today. You call me a whatever because of my race, religion, or whatever else you find about me and I'll just look at you like you're stupid... I'm not going to let someone like that bother me in the least...

How about I don't, and you don't.

And if you feel like doing so, I will feel like shitting up your thread with my objections against your use of said language.


I think that's fair.

How old were you when you learned that that was wrong?
Words can definitely hurt people.


Normally, I'm annoyed as all hell when someone says "check your privilege".... but when it becomes blindingly obvious that someone has never been on the receiving end of real directed hate-speech or prejudice, the only thing I can think to say is "and you should thank the stars and the gods who put them there that you were born a person who has no concept of an offensive word".

Some of us aren't so lucky.

That moment when you realize the crazy lady with all the cats was right...

T o anyone who gets offended by words continue reading.

Words have no power. You give them power. If nobody listened to hitler he would have been a footnote in history. He spouted nonsense and people acted upon these words. That was the true power, hitler had no power except for weak minded people to listen to what he said.

Without an audience these people are irrelevant. So stop giving them power.

Oh please Roll

If you can actually be "hurt" by the rantings of someone obviously less intelligent or "cultured" or "classy" than you, all I can say is your parents seriously missed out on some things when they raised you. Also, see my earlier post about your perceived "right to not be offended."

I don't perceive any right not to be offended. I'm sorry that my reminders of how to behave like a decent human being have offended you so.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)
