Could have sworn a chap called Signal 11th raised a topic on in-game racism. but it seems to have disappeared completely.

Not closed or moderated. Disappeared in the old fashioned way.

This smacks of sweeping the issue under the carpet. I could understand a closure on naming/shaming (although Signal DID self edit) or even non-constructive but trying to hide that there is an issue is another matter.

Nah, just moved to junk-yard by an over-active mod or just hidden while they do a cleanup.

It wouldn't have in any way broken any forum rules would it?  Like the one about not discussing moderator actions. :unsure:

Some naming and shaming was involved but that tends to just get edited, ohh and it was also the comments made by the dude PM'ing him which wasn't ok, but again that tends to end up with an edit in red rather than having the thread removed/hidden, but I just read the first page before bed so it might have derailed quite a bit after that.

He didn't start a thread about racism, he simply named and shamed a*edited*who threw around some random racist slurs. That's quite a difference.

Its the Internet, the amount of racism is seen as a sign of quality, any activity is good activity...

Dont people have anything better to do than cry about some irrelevant stranger talking smack on a pretend tank game?

Do people want safe spaces and a stress puppy to cuddle?

Nope.  Our ex communist friends know what they're doing when it comes to that sort of thing.

This would be fine if there were not double standards. A friend said that someone like QB cannot be trolled, TK, pushed etc as he'll cry to WG and get you banned. Whereas the rest of us need to suffer the idiocy...

The only guys and girls who should 'grow the [edited]up' are the ones thinking the behaviour displayed in Signals post is OK in any way.

 

There is nothing OK with that guys behaviour, nor is it a defense that it was posted on the Internet. 

 

Just because you are anonymous on the Internet it doesn't mean you can act like *edited*

I see lots of plebs who are clearly total and utter idiots, playing World of Tanks, and yet if was to point that out I'm sure they'd get offended.

Because these days many people confuse xenophobia with racism. Saying "*edited* poles" isn't racism, because poles are not a race. Or stupid germans, or *edited*, or smth smth jews. That last one is antisemitism.

Nowadays everything is racist and whenever I hear the word I roll me eyes expecting something that is not racism. So I'd like to know what was said that was "racist".

Wargaming clearly pays attention to both racist trolls in chat and griefers that mess with the team. :)
