Should noob be a banned word?

Essentially noob is most often used as a derogatory term. It is disparaging for the team. Shouldn't it be starred out in chat on those grounds? I can understand its use in the forum, although I'm certain there are much better ways of explaining yourself.

They should just remove censoring stuff, it's sometimes messes with chat, for example if i wanna say "essex, run" it will be shown as "es*** run"

Seems a bit precious. Do you know what physically happens when you are offended?

 

Nothing. Nothing happens.

Surely it is more precious to take the time to insult your team because you are unhappy with the current state of play? Taking the time out to voice that opinion instead of offering constructive advice is a total waste of time and effort. They feel offended and want someone else to share in their feelings of angst. So precious is the person who initiates the noob slinging. However to say nothing happens is incorrect imho. By that logic advertising would be a waste of time.

Yup. Good point. Happens to us all. Sadly I can understand how monitoring all reports would be unrealistic. So auto censoring kind of needs to be there I think.

I'm afraid this will happen eventually if everything is banned.

As I said.... It is the princess who flings the insult in the first place. So get it right.

So just to be clear... Your definition of fun is insulting strangers when you are unhappy with the game?

Its not fun, but why is society so hell bent of making everything so PC and sugarcoat everything.

Life is sometimes unfair.  Things go wrong.  People say bad things.   Protecting people from everything does nothing.

I would also like to ban the word "moderator" because it's only ever used as a derogatory term. :bush:

Essentially I agree. PC has taken it too far. PC has removed non-derogatory speech from acceptable use. I have no problems with derogatory speech not being given a free reign though. Too much time is wasted mud slinging. If a country can't be shortened because it's apparently offensive even when used in a non-derogatory manner, then why would you allow something when it is used in a derogatory manner?

The line is drawn at hate speech. "Noob" is hardly that. It's not harmful it's just fishing for a reaction.

Rather than ban the words, I would rather see the system will detect the bad words and auto-translate into something like nice and fluffy just to laugh it off. Something like that-FPS-MOBA-game have done.

I got caught. I can't help myself. It's something I will actively strive against. It's a bit like when people say "If I didn't do it someone else would" or "That's just the way it is". Both are typically fallacies.
