@Tooth-Decay, I appreciate that your post wasn't obnoxious in it's tone and choice of expletives, which means we may actually have a reasonable discussion about this.
I would first respond to your description of my posts being "obnoxious", whose dictionary definition is "extremely unpleasant." I request of you to do a fair analysis of my posts vs the counter-view responses. Whose posts are actually obnoxious by the definition of the word? This of course assumes that you don't mean that an expectation that this gaming platform not be used for promoting hateful views which have fuelled the genoicde and enslavement of hundreds of millions of people these last few centuries as obnoxious. Is that idea obnoxious to you? Is the request that we as a community draw a baseline of respectful behavior obnoxious? Is my tone and language obnoxious? Is it obnoxious to you that someone would persist in holding up this mirror? Or, is it obnoxious for an unmentioned reason?
When people shout racial slurs from the safety of their anonymity this is not "fun" to hear or engage with. I am not referencing "edgy comedy" - in am referencing outright explicit rhetoric. It's not fun to have to listen to ignorant drivel that led to the genocide of my family simply for the religion they were born in. It's not fun to hear baseless words whose fruits contributed to the near extermination of my wife's ancestors all across the Americas. Is it really too much to ask or expect that if people are playing this game for fun that they separate out their ignorant views that have nothing to do with gameplay? Do I have a reasonable right to politely make such a request?
Regarding calling "Fake News" - you may have picked up I was being facetious about what I perceived as a truly obnoxious post, both in language and content, which distorted the true essence of the conversation, turned it on it's head, and in a nasty fashion at that.
So, I ask you again, is it obnoxious to insist and persist that racist rhetoric has no place in this game? Is it fair to request that if you hold such views you keep them to yourself and play the intended game? Is it a request whose appropriate response is derogatory slurs and purposeful evasion & distortion?
