After all the complaining from so many players being chat banned for a legit word, that moderator is still doing it.

I guess WG really don"t care what the players think?

"An oxymoron is a figure of speech, usually one or two words in which seemingly contradictory terms appear side by side. This contradiction is also known as a paradox."

maybe this definition isnt known.

The use of oxymoron on this forum is just an open secret now.

So you think oxymodmoron, what you posted in general chat, is a legitimate word then?

Keyword as was said above, one of two words. I suspect it's the 2nd one they aimed at if you used it vs someone.

This moderator has to be sacked now there is no other option available also if he plays the game it has to be a year ban from the general chat and forum. There are rules so we keep being told and those rules have to be fair for all and that includes moderators most of them are great but you will always get at least one bad apple tarnishing the rest and so for their own credibility the moderators must also ask for this one to be removed so as to re-establish confidence in the moderators.

The rules aren't fair for all.

Different rules apply to different persons here, which is very visible.

WG moderators can do whatever they want and ban whomever they want without any evidence for it.

And any company with any sense would remove mod's who did that after all it does one of two things.

1. It drives people away makes them disgruntled with the game, they do not recommend the game as much if at all to others but in fact complain about the game even more.

2. In this modern world it leaves the company open to a potential legal case now that case may not succeed but you never know and no matter the outcome the bad publicity is more damaging for the company.

 

So moderators should be subject to very similar rules that they enforce but the issue is a certain person we have been told was contacted by epic awesome guys about this mod and was supposed to be looking into it. Now I have respect for the contacted mod and if he was contacted this reflects very very badly on them not just the offending mod who is bringing every single mod into disrepute. So for that reason alone the offending mod needs to be removed.

I remember the first time I saw this mod's name, and due to the nature of the thread, genuinely thought it was a bonus code, and tried to enter it on the Activate Wargaming Code screen. Of course this didn't work, and shortly after I found out that it was not in fact a bonus code.

 

I've had to revise that assessment in the mean time, it's definitely a bonus code, 'cause it's the gift that keeps on giving :teethhappy:

 

 

As for Wargaming not caring what the players think, they seem to care what I think just fine, as I think General chat to be utterly pointless, there are zero reasons to have it or to be there, and if you get banned from it, not only have you lost nothing, it was your own fault and the situation only serves to amuse as people complain about it on this forum. Keep it up, Wargaming!

OP should note that while oxymoron is a legitimate word "oxymodmoron" is not. It is simply someone who mistakenly thinks they are clever being an arse.

I don't know why they just don't add words that trigger mods into the filter word script if they are that bad. Words not in that list have to be acceptable regardless of individual mods aberrations.

 

Can it be an instance of being discriminatory against people with Tourette syndrome if it's a naughty word?

I'm not a medical specialist of any kind but I'm pretty sure Tourette's syndrome doesn't apply to typing because it's an involuntary physical reaction related to speech, not writing.

And actually paradoxes dont really exist. They are just lack of knowledge. They seem to be paradoxes but will be solved in the future just like past paradoxes have.

 

Some paradoxes are just wrong use of language and linguistics.

 

For example:

 

"There are no rules" contradits itself since its a rule and hence should be written as "only one rule , that there are no other rules"

"There are no absolutes" also contradicts itself as it is an absolute claim itself. Therefore absolutes exist *Edited

Trolling a moderator is actually a reason to get banned.  Given most people could not use the word, in chat, in context, its purpose is clearly to troll.
