Players who do not want to be part of fair and reasonable discussions on these forums will soon find they do not belong on this discussion area at all.
Other thrid party sites do not have a legal obligation to keep their forums teen rated and suitable for 13 year olds. We do. This means that wht other forums can allow we are not able to permit. [sic]
Ok, here is what I will say about the use of 'Jewgold', Jewing' and other terms of that nature. They don't add anything of value to a discussion. The very terminology is offensive to many and completely unnecessary. There are many of our players who are Jewish and they should not be subjected to phrasing which makes them and others feel uncomfortable.
CCP do not tolerate religious, racial or sexist messaging which is used to cause discomfort to other players.
'Crap posts' are not necessarily a problem. Abusive, spiteful and hateful posts most certainly are.
Quick question, what is the value in calling someone 'dumb'? As someone who frequents the forums you must surely be aware that giving out an insult generally results in getting an insult back thus setting up a cycle of deterioration in the thread. Do you feel that good threads being derailed in this manner benefits the community in general? Do you find that threads of these nature go on to become threads for the betterment of the community?
Once again, we want you all to be vocal. We want you discussing EVE, why you love it, why you hate it, what you would like to see in the future and more. Our only request from you is that you do it in a way that makes your fellow players and our Developers comfortable in having that discussion with you.
The latest rules we have are to provide a better environment for Developers and players to talk. That is our primary goal.
