I got home from work today to see that WG have changed my clan name and emblem from TURD (Terminally Unstable & Relatively Dangerous). 

Is TURD really an offensive word or are WG living in the 1930's? Where I'm from, this day and age I hear a lot more offensive words than TURD come out of the mouths of 3 year old's.

I could understand if we had used actual swearing or foul language but......TURD........really? 

Next they'll be banning clans with the name POOP or PLOP. 

I think this game is slowly being aimed at the younger generations and soon CW is gonna be battled out by teams full of 5 year old's.

 

GJ WG!

 

Poll added. I want my TURD back!!

Its probably someone who has a very tight bum hole indeed who has probably reported the name. Couple that with the fact that the mods & devs maybe only speak English as their second language, so the finer subtleties of our very bizarre pythonesque humour and as to what is socially unacceptable and what is just a bit of fun are lost on them. They probably popped "turd" into google and saw it was another word for poo and panicked. 

 

Or they are just anal retentives too ?  :hiding:

 

P.S plop/poop would be a great new name for your clan :veryhappy: although I cannot think of any acronyms for it. Maybe a short competition here ?

There ALWAYS will be some idiot out there being offended by this, that or the other.

 

Political correctness ... hmpf.  Black is black, white is white, stupid people are stupid, and turds are turds. Simple as. If some people get offended by certain words, it's THEIR'S damn problem, not the other way around.

I don't think any word typed on a computer can be offensive - it can only show stupidity.

As a member of ... erm... RCS08 I logged on to great dissapointment to find the clan name changed. The TURD clan are a great set of like minded chaps who are good fun to play with, and the TURD clan tag and clan name really epitomised what the clan stands for. We aren't delussioned that we are better than we actually are... for the most part we're all pretty rubbish... or at best average! but we celebrate that and have fun doing it. We don't take the game too seriously and love it for that fact.

 

if im completely honest the tag TURD is the most of the reason why i was drawn to the clan and why i chose to join them as my first ever clan...

 

I'm incredibly shocked that TURD is seen as offensive by anyone... and I can only wonder if the name was reported by someone who was frustrated that clan members had shamed them in battle!? the word is over 1000years old... And we know that the word is even allowed to be broadcast on TV... indeed, there are far more offensive words on UK TV... case in point

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYcVtCV6qI4

where the word turd is so in-offensive that it i even broadcast in the US... (and comically paired with the word "bus" to actually try to make it offensive!

You are complaining that your poop humor is being censored,then claim that it is to get yunger players inn...I don't think you realise how juvenile it is to have a clan named TURD.

 

Edit: also the word turd is not over 1000 years old, it is believed to come from around 1100s(so 900ish years). Look up your facts.
