Just came across a youtube video showing how somebody got a chat ban for using the word "oxymoron". The chat mod considered it an insult. 

 

Can we have a facepalm smiley?

This is so telling. It says everything about the intellectual and educational level way too many mods operate on.

 

ROFLMAO!

In WoWp is an achievement "Ace" for killing an amount of enemies. In german this achievement is called "A s s". The name of this ingame achievement got edited if you try to use it in chat or in the forum.

It's not a rocket science to find out that some of staff are not the brightest ones. the question is. Why such person moderates english speaking channels

I am in a state of continual bemusement at the nonsensical actions of some non-English speakers, when making decisions on others, for simply using English correctly.

I saw this yesterday on you tube.  I was amazed that so many people were banned for using an actual real (inoffensive) word.  We'll probably all get banned here for discussing the word, simply because WG can!

I saw it frankly just a few minutes ago and then i saw this post.

Totally stupid what happened, but also the streamer was kinda of a gerk in its way and that is what probrably led to that behaviour by the moderator, wich is wrong anyway.

 

I had a barrel of laughs, and remember the times i got sacked in general chat for same reason with other words, english is not my native language, but my, oh dear, i do know what that means and i wouldnt make such a big mistake... 

 

i avoid general chat, started doing it about 2 years ago, since i had some chat bans and even got a account ban over a simple misunderstanding of a word i wrote down in chat, so i dont even risk it.

Our favorite moderator is still chat banning people for oxymoron or oxymoron variations like oxymodmoron. It says everything about how WG deal with their wrongs against us the players.

There are illiterate people in every country. It doesn't even matter if the word is spelled right in the mod's native language if they're too...special...to know it.

OK this moderator has to be SACKED ! there is no other option available now the general chat is ENGLISH and to not use ENGLISH can result in a ban. If this moderator is too ignorant too inept too stupid after all this time to know that the word OXYMORON is not in any way offensive in any way rude or derogatory then they are beyond help and reason and must be sacked immediately.

 

No matter how you want to view it,  it is abusive behaviour by a mod and sorry for all those mods who try and do a good job but you all get tarnished with the same brush so please restore faith in the moderators and remove this bad apple and make clear that this bad apple has been removed not just as a mod but chat banned for a year after all that is the punishment for players on a third strike.
