    No, it's not just keep "more adult-oriented discussions" there.
    Actually, the issue is bigger than that.
    In non-english guilds you'll get censored just because a harmless native word spells like an english non-pegi7 word.
    Yeah. For example we cant use a very common word "but" in our native language as in "weather is nice but could be warmer" as it gets filtered.

    It's also a problem in English as well as words which are acceptable but contain a banned word are also filtered.
    When it comes to Gene pools and shallow ends they can be found at the bar drinking pina colada's

    Mostly just tossing in my vote for "Actual children do exist in this game", and the majority of cringe-making behaviour seems to come from people old enough to know better.

    How do you mean?




    That the Dutch "how" is filtered on a Euro server (also a very common typo in English for the same word) has always driven me bats but at least we've regained "Scooby", "billboard", and the letter "k".

    I support the pegi7, i been on many games that do not have filtering. Its fun for a few and avoided by many.

    Hey SmurfAsh, I'm not sure how my numbers went awry there, I meant to refer to Tierarzt's randomly whingey post:

    I'll edit my earlier to reference post #9. Still, it doesn't matter really which generation, or sex, or nationality, or belief system is being thrown under the bus (and in my time here I've seen pretty much every example of "Anyone who isn't sufficiently me-like is the source of All The World's Problems" and assorted other bouts of nit-wittery, including a player, well past Gen X and/or Millenial age, who has grown so sulky about how the players here are too hard to upset so that same player (as announced frequently in Help) is off to FaceBook where it it's easier to upset people.)

    I've had my run-ins with "moderation" here, and sometimes it does go overboard or gets confused but when [in yellow] manage to keep their own personal biases under control they do contribute a lot to maintaining a much less eyeball-bleeding level of toxicity than the standard "norm" that is much of the interwebz. It's not perfect, it needs work, every human can do better, but TSO chat is ever so much less nauseating that your average YouTube video comments section.

    primetime like now and last message at Global 1 and nobody wanna talk at all(pegi). Almost 2 hours and not a single message at global 1. Skip those 0,1% kids and actual players will and can play and behave like we are supposed. Let us link and talk.
