Seems like WG is still a few years in the past with their mindset :P
Criticism about communism and their great leaders is forbidden !
I'm not surprised....

On the other hand - there is nothing wrong with "I'm a stalinist" being an emblem in the game.

Double standards?

wargaming have shown time and time again that they are awash with double standards and inconsistency in their policy and ability to moderate the social aspect of WOT. Communist/fascist logos on tanks are allowed. mild humour on it are not.

foul and vulgar swear words are allowed as user names in a child friendly atmosphere but brave soldiers of the  3rd reich are not. even names with 2 s's are not allowed whether Natzi in origin or not..

Estimated number of victims
In the introduction, editor Stéphane Courtois states that "...Communist regimes... turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government"[3]. He claims that a death toll totals 94 million[4]. The breakdown of the number of deaths given by Courtois is as follows:
65 million in the People's Republic of China
20 million in the Soviet Union
2 million in Cambodia
2 million in North Korea
1.7 million in Africa
1.5 million in Afghanistan
1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
1 million in Vietnam
150,000 in Latin America (mainly Cuba)
10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power."[4]
Courtois claims that Communist regimes are responsible for a greater number of deaths than any other political ideal or movement, including Nazism. The statistics of victims includes executions, famine, deaths resulting from deportations, physical confinement, or through forced labor.

I would be offended too
