Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

As the one, who was a victim of doxxing once (and petitioned it), I fully appreciate these changes. I also like to think, that I was the one, whos case actually motivated CCP to look at their own rule set about RL harassment, and rethink them, so they now actually protect people and enforce the law. At last.

Stop posting and tweeting Donald.

Why would you try to bruise someone with words? That is a form of harassment to an interior personality that you think exists that you are applying your own form of physical abuse too in order to try and shatter their personality.

Why is that? Abusive words leave no marks like physical abuse does. Physical abuse can be tried and proven in a court. How can you prove word abuse?

Simple, use a word of abuse that translates to trying too use the massless to create an effect upon a body with mass.

Not even wrong.

So does that mean attacking asteroids with lasers is a form of physical harassment and if they report me I can be banned? how about shooting belt rats isn’t that harassing them too? what about trying to work the market too If you undercut someone by even 0.01 isk isn’t that harassing their wallet income? what about sitting in local and not doing anything that takes server load to do as well harassing the electrical flow with unneeded usage… Just sayin…might as well ban the game from itself…it violates the EULA.

So apparently my post has been hidden, its again another way freedom of speech is being stamped out when it goes against the status quo, like these words are any less relevant than anything else said in this forum post, and yet my words aren’t even as offensive as other postings and yet its directly targeted by certain individuals and hidden, So are you really going to hide my post and directly assault my freedom of speech with your post hiding illuminati propaganda one view post processing??

Cmon guys, dont behave and act like you are so clinically stupid. Because you are not. I dont believe that any human being can be dumb enough to not fully understand the meaning of the word ‘harassment’ and ‘word abuse’.

Stop pretending that you dont know what extreme levels of offence can actually reach such horrible thing as badmouthing.

If you say that any ■■■■ like that is okay, well then lets say that nazism, racism, discrimination by religion, nation, skin color and sex - is okay too. What??? They are all mainly word abuse!! They cant be BAD!

I live in a country that is striving to define hate speech in laws and make it an criminal act, go do your own research I have done mine.

A new meme is born

Ignorance of the language does not exempt a person from this responsibility!

(Balos Tritapo) #784

This is not about not understanding…it’s about opposing and ignoring the snowflakes…

Clear words for clear minded people who KNOW that the ONLY answer for an insult is to re-insult one…and yes even let your fist collide with ones teeth…but not run to your mummy and cry at the court…

(Jallukola) #794

Offense is always taken, never given.

(Balos Tritapo) #799

The reality is as harsh as it is…your whishful thinking does not change it…

Maybe your bubble reality life is all pink and all people are good and working for the community…the life of the 99% that is not you is not that way believe it or not…

So wake up and see the world as it is not as you whish it would be…

Removed some off topic posts.

“toxicity” should be removed. its not defined at all, and can cover pretty much every form of interaction in eve. Many would describe the act of scamming “toxic behavior” under these vague rules, scamming may or may not be a violation.

what SJWs have blackmailed you? i have to wonder.

(Rifter Enthusiast) #830

the SJW cancer has infected eve while i was gone, it seems. For example, in this very thread, look at this post, which has been flagged and hidden:

i can barely make out what he’s trying to say but i certainly dont see anything that deserves to be flagged and censored here. What the hell is going on with eve? are we allowed to pvp still?

(Nevyn Auscent) #831

Likely they got flagged for spam. Because they keep posting rambles that lose the plot mixing rl and ig. Perhaps rather than getting up in arms have a deeper think.

(Dravick Afterthought) #832

Too much mention of ‘SJW’ in this thread - is this the ghost of GamerGate ?

(Ima Wreckyou) #833

Just people watching too much YouTube and getting triggered by words like “hate speech” without actually looking at the lengthy explanation CCP Guard gave what they will do if they think you behave incorrectly (hint: they will talk to you and tell you what they think is not OK and why)

(Koss Vha) #834

There was a public apology from Mittens, he stepped down as CSM chairman and the official punishment ended up being a 30 day ban. Also don’t forget this was back in 2012 and the very reason this thread exists it that the policy has been changed since then and is now more clearly defined.
Now looking at GigX’s violation… We can clearly see it was a lot more recent and it wasn’t just bullying, it was a threat of real life physical violence and real life stalking/DOXing (trying to acquire a players private information). New policies cannot affect things that have happened years ago and CCP has the sole discretion when it comes to choice of punishment and validity/severity of offence. Not to mention the fact that “Real-life threats” and “Harassment” very clearly defined as two separate categories of offence.
Finally my personal opinion is that either you very much have a horse in this race contrary to what you claim, you literally do not understand how the past/present/future system we call time works or you’re choosing to ignore the facts. Either way i hope you have been educated.

With deepest sympathy,
