In the name of fairness, @StacieMeier asks a valid question. What exactly constitutes “bad language”? Conan Exiles has an international community, and even though we use English as our lingua franca, it doesn’t remove the cultural differences in communication. This is true even between countries where English is a native language. Some expressions that may be totally okay, neutral and inoffensive in e.g. UK may be considered “bad language” in the US, and vice versa.
And non-native English-speakers may not even be aware of these differences. They may use an expression they heard from a British friend and get confused when an American person is upset by what they said. You know, there are still people who are horrified by the expression “this sucks”.
Obviously, threats towards other players or offensive expressions directed at another are cases that should not be tolerated. Everyone deserves a safe gaming environment. But when discussing “bad language” people too often focus on trivial matters such as how many asterisks do you need to include in a four-letter word so it becomes acceptable. Context and intent are what matter, not the combinations of letters used. Hearing a random passer-by on the street using a vulgar word is probably not going to ruin anyone’s life, whereas insults or threats directed at you can cause lifelong traumas, regardless of whether any actual swearwords were used or not.
That’s what makes banning or punishing “bad language” such a difficult topic.
