New Forum Policy: No Hateful Posts

bromance
I got to say, that I very much appreciate how the forum support staff is attempting to follow their rules even in the cases where it would be "politically correct" to not edit posts.

It shows that the support staff has a strong integrity.

Good luck trying to stop people from posting hateful comments. Forums are nothing but dwelling places for trolls. Every forum page i have ever visited, every account i have ever created, since the beginning of my time on the internet, forums have always had a vast amount of hateful people who do nothing but troll forums. Its so common, that its expected to be trolled whenever you make a post. Im sure im gonna get trolled just by posting this. I wish we could get rid of hateful people on forums everywhere on the internet. But there is too many piece of shit losers out there who love to spend there whole day trolling people with hateful comments. Regardless, trolls love forums and you cant stop them. They hate life, they hate you, and most importantly, they hate themselves.
Sincerely, Troll Hater.

Come to Off-Topic. We are pretty good at self policing and only call on the mods for extreme cases.

But to your point, many forums are littered with trolls and their filth, but not all. I visit a pro sport forum (I lurk, not post) that is also very good at self policing. One of my best friends is on a forum that is the same way.

Trolls will always be around, but its how you react to them that makes the difference. Fighting them is their goal. In the early days after OB, trolls came out of the woodwork. We stopped them by being nice. For every ugly posting, the response was "Does someone need a hug?" or "Group hug everyone!" Trolls hate this and leave.

You can also turn a troll into one of the family if you are able to get past the initial layer of their ugliness.
I did not ask for it, but I was unable to refuse the all powerful one's siren's call.
My new supporter title is now God Emperor of OT.
Don't fret too much, I plan to be a benevolent ruler.
Now go forth and frolic.
Sometimes someone doesn't do something because they have a better understanding of things than you have which doesn't make them wrong. It makes them wiser. I totally agree that trolls suck and they ruin social and gaming experiences.

The truth is out there...

There's a difference between trolling and starting Flame wars: Trolling is WITHOUT the intent of harm, almost like practical jokes... Flaming someone however is not the same as trolling. Flaming is WITH the intent of harm (usually emotional harm).

Still, you have a point.
Hey !
I hate any form of censorship. There should be no limit when it comes to free speech. Even if it would hurt your feels. It comes down to responsibility - on both sides. I know that we are not machines, and things can get emotional - but we were given the ability to cope with things rationally if we so choose. Better make use of that instead of trying to make the whole world baby-safe (and sterilized with Lysol).

Spam on the other hand, like if someone just repeats his "hate-speech" over and over with nothing new to see ...

Free speech? These forums are GGG's property, as is the game. If you can't discuss the game in a CONSTRUCTIVE way, you probably shouldn't anyway, free speech or not. At least if you don't want people to look down on you as childish or destructive.

And this is coming from someone who probably made their share of hateful posts. :D

Criticism doesn't need to be constructive to be useful, it is enough that it points out flaws without providing solutions.

It can still be done in a civil manner. If that is too much effort for some people, too bad, go rage on reddit instead.
