You'd think sorting out many of the things in the game that seem to feature regularly on the forum like the Bobject, 3/5/7 MM, chat servers, premium ammo, and artillery that Wargaming would have their hands full.

 

It's now reported that they wish to censor what we wear to play the game.

To anyone who thinks we make a habit of exercising censorship against critical viewpoints, I encourage you to spend literally any time at all in this General Discussion forum.  We remove and sanction posts that violate forum rules (Mainly inappropriate language, incitement of harassment, and people who wear socks with sandals), but critical opinions are fair game.

 

As someone who dresses according to my Wn8 colour, I find this deeply offensive.

Oh yeah, and there's some other bits about the EULA not being about censoring criticism and other serious stuff.

For the record, Mr. Sniper here has previously called himself stupid.

Sandals + socks matter.

Those socks are age and gender inappropriate. They should be worn only by teenage girls with cheerleader skirts in sandals with high heels.

Seems like they are against the combination of socks and sandals in all situations. That is a dumb standpoint.

There wouldn't be a server group on our TS if it wasn't true.

I don't know why LRS, but I was expecting you'd look more like this in socks 'n sandals rather than that 'elegant' chap you posted.

From what i recall there were about 67,432 server groups in the MM TS (But never neough). I remember when Snucks was given rights, he mucked up EVERY SINGLE ONE and Mungo had to spend about 2 days sorting them all out again.... he lost rights shortly after that.

 

Just checked mine and i once left MM for MOSES. therefore a new one was created just fort that momentous occasion.

We've all got server rights now I think apart from Anxter?  Aikl did a spring clean and tidied most of them up.

Some of the dimensions look correct, but I have hair!

 

Maybe it's a sign of how tough the bouncers are going to be at Tankfest.

It isn't completely clear, though. Perhaps it is only posts about people wearing socks and sandals that are banned....

I don't think this is one of those threads where it really requires deep analysis and a debate over the definition of what is a "sock" or something like that, but by all means if that's where you want to go crack on.

Nah. Duncan or Shnuks. The latter deemed the cleanup unnecessary. Or maybe he expected someone to mess it up.

 

I'd report you for posting that image, but I'm on my phone.

I did not think that this was a thread that required deep analysis of anything at all, really. :amazed::popcorn:

Am I to be censored or even banned as I have to use socks and sandals in work?

Will keep you posted upon the matter as I'm supposedly working as of writing this (unless I'm banned, naturally).
