The N word In-Game (Slang Version)
 
I see it so often and It really starting to bother me, I mean I have said it before(not n game) but I dont anymore, maybe it's because I am from the south or whatever but I just dont like it.

Do you guys think the slang version is ok for the servers, or do you sometimes get offended by it?

SSJKarma 08-07-2011 10:19 PM

i dont even understand what you are talking about...

the n word meaning a black women if i am right about it... is filtered if people bypass the filter to say it is still wrong.

just like i hate people who say FTW instead of dubya tee eff, both are the very same and both should be filtered.

LuXv 08-07-2011 10:26 PM

The N-Word does not mean a black women, But it is highly disrespectful to African-Americans due to obvious reasons. Although what "WE" (as a type of peoples) have tried to do with the word is, take away its inital meaning and power and turn it into something else. (Probably thus the reason you see us using a slightly altered version of the word). I am not saying this is okay, some people dont take offense to the word but also some people do. So I guess the word will have to be banned or any "in-game slanaged" versions. I.e "****" and various other ones (I will not post) I too find my self using that in-game, but lately I have been changing it up.

Overall I do agree the word should be filtered, but its not a VERY big deal.

Whatever context users may use the numerous variations of the "N" word in-game is irrelevant. It's offensive and profane, and is to be treated as such in-game as well as on the forum.

:erm Im not sure we are talking about the same word, and if we are its about all black people/African Americans.

I'm not going to get into the N word debate, but as concerns SFO, there are at least 200 'N' word entries or slang/bypass variations of it (it's really 245) between the chat filter and banned username phrases for SFO and SFX.

I think that answers your question.

What offends everyone individually often does not matter if the rules are clear; if it is filtered, stop trying to find ways to say it in-game. People are however free to call themselves whatever they like in MSN, or in private, where the only rules on prohibited content of IMs are the ones you set for yourselves.

Edit: Two minutes too slow. M_J (who I'm sure conjured up most of the 245 entries) has given you the short version.

Kim-Kam 08-07-2011 10:57 PM

I never typed the word, so I did not know whether it was filtered or not.
However I do get offended by it, but I know numerous people who don't and think it is acceptable so I did not make a report because.
What is offensive to me may not be offensive to others , hence the reason for this topic. Because I don't like the word and I just wanted to know the protocol around that.

idk why but i find the words N!qq3r and N!qq@
two different words.. hence, is why i get angry when people say N!qq3r.
idgaf if they say N!qq@

*sorry for going around it..i just didnt know how to really explain the differences in a small def. every time i wanted to say the word.

Wolfeh 08-07-2011 11:24 PM

Have you actually BEEN on the internet in the past, oh, 15 years?

ANYWHERE you can use a racial slur, there's someone ready to throw it at you with every fiber of his conviction.

It's pointless.

You know .. You really didn't have to actually bypass the filter to make your point ... Just say "N word".

Racial slurs are always going to be around ... Racism will end once the human race dies out. It is just in our power to prevent it the best way possible (in which has been said 2-3 different ways now) within the community. Its probably the most annoying thing, yes, but in the end, you just have to expect it to happen.

However, we will try the best to prevent it.

I for once agree with this man's statement.

SSJKarma 08-07-2011 11:52 PM

when i said black women, it was referrencing to the origins of the word which i think was to be the same as the b word but for black people. thats all...

all in all, i said the same thing as MJ did, only his was more precise...
if its filtered it is, reguardless of how slang'ed you say it, you should still not be able to say it at all...

if you guys see a person using a slang'ed, switched up languaged word that you know is filtered... then let us know and we will act.

Zetca 08-08-2011 10:53 AM

What about the spanish word of that which Elena seems to use alot xD

blockattack 08-08-2011 11:34 AM

Racial slurs, even used in casual conversation or jokingly is prohibited.
Point blank. If its in SFO, you get banned.

DARK-RAIKEN-X 08-08-2011 12:01 PM

what would happen if everything was filtered? no more english:sarcastic:
i 'd say every black born from United State use that term on each other. don't go saying that its offensive on less you where born from the motherlands of Africa. i was born in Cameroon, Africa. though people call me that word i still laugh because it doesn't apply to where i come from, only a person born in the U.S would find that offensive. you know what a friend of mine say that we Africans are better than the blacks here. i say if its disciplined your correct=] but if its about originality your wrong:no. so if i don't see it as a big deal you shouldn't if its spelled wrong. what any staff member would have said by now. correct me if am wrong.

i honestly think swear words should be banned completely, it's not nice to type them thru in-game chats.

Also, talking about someone'e else cultures is kinda wrong too. Unless if a nub thinks it's funny. However, i don't.
you should read what i just said

LadyChamp 08-08-2011 12:17 PM

I have just learn'd to ignore it but it should not be used on SFO so i belive using it should get you a nice ban!

Zetca 08-08-2011 04:28 PM

You know what's more sad...? I actually hear kids saying these kind of slurs... : /

Lightning~Bolt 08-08-2011 04:48 PM

This been going on ever since i 1st started...the a @ the end is like a friend, your ace

I.E. Tim is my n***a

The er is the racist remark talking about black people...

I.E. N****rs hang like apples on trees

but the er is not really to black people like myself...the definition is "An ignorant person" so there can be white, asain, mexican, etc.

daddypete 08-08-2011 04:49 PM

No Offense but your post seems so ignorant to me. Every black person DOES NOT use that term on each other, because I don't hence this topic. I may have said the word before, but it is deff not an every day occurence in my vocabulary.

True I was not born in Africa, but do you know where slaves came from and the whole continental drift and DNA research. If I am correct aren't we all descendants of Africa, or most of us anyway and how can someone say we Africans are better than blacks, no one is better than anyone.I thought I was offended before but sheesh I really am disgusted now.

Edit:English is English, this is slang we are talking about. You can not have slang and still have English unless you just do not know how to speak. There is a dictionary full of great, capable words, some offensive and others not so much. If it is too much of a stretch to tone down what you say in SFO then you do not need to be here. It is a chat for goodness sake. Everyone does not like stuff like that so just show respect for them and control what you say.

(~_PortaLioN_~) 08-08-2011 05:51 PM

hmm it does need fixing alot of people especially new people will see that stuff and start copying and its pretty offending to me and basically who thinks this is rasicm.

donkios 08-08-2011 05:53 PM

People just say it to be cool. It's just society today although I don't understand why people go through the hassle of makign new words to slip through the filter. I don't think they say it to be racist it's really just how people use the word today, not that I agree with it or anything

btw was I the only one who caught that Karma thought FTW was the same as dubya tee eff? lolz.

Lightning~Bolt 08-08-2011 05:59 PM

I'm not gonna lie, at least this kinda better than people who swear all day everyday tryna be cool, i mean really like they can't even say 6 words without saying a swear...its annoying and VERY wack really.
