I voted neutral, the reason I’m neither for or against is that these folks that do this people call immature, which does apply, but mostly there’s been little study on this but different brain areas develop at different rates for a variety of reasons, environmental, nutritional, exposure, cultural, so there’s bound to be people who lag behind and are only capable of things like that, there is a word for it but I don’t want to go there, not helpful.
If I may offer an alternative plan of action?
My favorite alt ganks characters with objectionable names in game, and I have a very good time doing it.
Been doing it for about 2 years now.
It was called ISIS before ISIS was a well known thing
The soft-skinned get offended all the same. It’s literally impossible to say or write anything without at least one person feeling offended by it. Adding time to that equation isn’t going to make things any better.
I care so little about an issue like this, I almost didn’t make this post.
Let’s not be pussies. This is EVE.
If this was a war of likes… you lost sir.

Honestly, I think it was a troll thread. I’ve been seeing a lot of them on here lately.

I’m offended every time I roll out of bed in the morning - about as much and often as the next guy. Every time I turn on the news, walk down the street, or pretty much do anything, I’m offended. But the difference between me and a lot of people nowadays is, I don’t think I have a right not to be offended, and I don’t agitate for government policies, or in this case, game policies, to make sure I’m not offended.
I do think this is a troll post though. 3/10.
Think I have the high ground there anyway.
I guess it is safe to assume OP hates pussies.
I’ve played the game for about nine years now. Time after time after time I’ve come across pilot names, language, and behaviour that is sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, and sometimes just generally hateful and misanthropic.
On several occasions, I’ve complained to CCP about specific instances and pretty every time I’ve come up against utter indifference and a total lack of interest in actually doing anything tangible. Most of the time I get pointed vaguely in the direction of the EULA and told that there’s nothing in it that stops people basically behaving as offensively as possible as much as they like.
Personally, I don’t find any of this acceptable but it is what it is. It’d be nice if some of the ‘representatives’ on the CSM, or even just one, would take this on, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
The memes are old, but they check out.
ok…but who determines what is offensive? I’m glad CCP decides rather than letting anybody who is offended by something exercise an automatic heckler’s veto.
I’ts up to us to parent our kids, not CCP.
I can’t do that, Capsuleer.

There’s a knick knack store in an area I frequent called “The Pink Pussy.” Big giant sign out front and everything.
Despite all of the opposing flame replies posted in this thread, seems the majority of forum users here voted no to the question “Should those names be allowed”.
7 hrs after thread creation the results are:
42% voted no
38% voted yes
23% voted neutral
Yeah, it definitely worked like a charm, got most of the trolls in this forum to post here. In fact some of them couldn’t resist the urge to do it multiple times.
Likes don’t mean crap here, especially due to LAGL thread and multiple alts.
