Which part of “basic human decency” is so problematic that the you and Nemisis have to spend so much effort arguing against it? Do you seriously need concrete examples? Is the example Nemisis himself gave – about those players who screamed into their microphones about what they would do to his mother and sister – somehow not enough?
Do you need more? Fine. Trigger warning: anyone who has been a victim of abuse should avoid clicking on blurred text. How about an incident from a server where I used to play before? A new player came to the server. Supposedly he was 13 years old, no way to verify that now. An established player told him he would rape him. Kid never came back again.
So why should anyone have to let themselves be treated like that, just because a few of you spread FUD about how this people will get banned for silly things? Honestly, why is it so hard to accept that not everyone has exactly the same personality and the same upbringing? Why is it so hard to give the new rules a chance and complain if you have a reason to do so?
And seriously, if you really can’t live without the freedom to be subjected to racism and teenagers screaming curses at you, there are plenty of games out there that enshrine that freedom.
