Personally i find the R-word wrong.

 

Understand that people dont mean harm directly, but what is a wonan gonna think logging on and seeing players saying they are gonna R$&e someone!

 

again, i know thats not the intent. But it is dangerous territory. If u ever know someone.....well, it aint funny. 

 

And I like plus respect women and know that younger kids play the game.

 

so, i ask people to not use word (nicely). I will cross a map at high speed to try and kill players with the word in name or clan tags, if possible.

 

would appreciate it if experienced players avoided the word. 

 

there are alternatives. 

 

thanks to anyone who gets this and helps build a culture that is positive.

If they aren't calling themselves "Islamic State" then ISIS is fine...think of all the things it could stand for!

Besides, isn't "ISIS" is the name westerners attribute to these religious extremists? Not what they call themselves being, in the main, non-English speakers? Why further empower them by giving them domain over these four letters?

Nemesis,are u seirious?

my friend u are not allowed to swear on WOT,This is my friend a war game which im afraid people take serious and it is also a place here young people can get influenced ,the word ISIS represents a disbelief that aggression and fear can create world under their control that we as humans would live under a dictatorship that would destroy humanity itself.....

yes i understand that the word can mean otherwise ......so could the word fuck....

people are getting killed here.....lets not promote this

I'm very serious!
We are talking about censorship here. like curtailing civil liberties its conceding ground to terrorism...there is a cost to democracy, real democracy, and sometimes that cost is the highest.

No, this is a game, with lots of kids playing. We dont need clan tags supporting insanity, thanks.

Right...so censorship is fine until what age Pimp_Daddy? On what topics? Personally I think that your argument would be more effectively employed to justify banning your own GamerTag - "pimps" and their exploitation of societies most vulnerable woman could be perceived to be more insidious than a bunch of Islamic fundamentalists. You think that explaining sex, prostitution, servitude and people trafficking to children is preferable to religion? Or maybe the concept of a "Sugar Daddy"?

Hmm you do make a valid point, I do still think that racist tags or those belonging to any group that incites hatred is worse.
