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.

 

Reading specific words can trigger Tourette's ticks, which can be phisycally painful to restrain for the person suffering from it.

You can check Sweet_Anita's channel on Twitch (she probably doesn't stream World of Tanks) to know more about this, she's a person that suffers from Tourette's and has very recently managed to overcome one of her trigger words.

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

I think that after all he had done wrong, the mass bans, ignoring his own staff for behaving better the moderator should learn some new words like oxymoron.

 

It might have been a lack of oxy-gen. Lets call it a oxymod-gen. 

 

When a moderator or someone else working for a company make a mistake over and over again he should take a little trolling like a man. That mean just ignore a comment that pointed out his mistake and this case would already have been closed.

 

What worries me more is the way Wargaming is poorly handling their players. This is a good example for that. It really feels they don't give a F what you and me think and how to listen or treat players.

When you have a moderator who get triggered by some legit words to auto chat ban players, i think you should find an other activity more suitable for him.

 

Mayby WG can give volunteers some small compensation to work as an moderator by giving them some Premium time. That way you will be able to choose some better moderators.

So the word you used was a legitimate word. It’s a simple yes or no answer.

Thanks for the information (and I don't watch streamers so pass on that, thanks) but that seems to be the opposite of what was described. The player I responded to suggested it'd be discriminatory against people with Tourette's syndrom if "naughty words" were filtered, implying these'd be written by the person with Tourette's and not read.

Yes. The word is not a naughty word.

 

Beyond that, maybe you could click some of the links i had posted or watch the video from the streamer. 

Or beyond that: start thinking about the way we players get treated by some moderators  should improve.

So you think that oxymodmoron is a legitimate word. Well it’s a point of view I suppose.

Does not matter if it is a legitimate word or not the issue is that of is it an offensive word in any way shape or form and the answer to that is IN NO WAY IS IT OFFENSIVE ! This moderator is out of control and needs removing immediately.

just think what would happen if every single person went on that chat and only said the word OXYMORON and then got chat banned when ban lifted did the same or tried to explain what it means and got chat banned again when lifted because they new they had not done anything wrong tried to explain again and got perm banned. Now do that to a few thousand players firstly the publicity would be extremely bad for wargaming and potentially could lead to a class action lawsuit for breach of human rights ie freedom of speech.

 

Now I am in NO ! way and I do mean in NO ! way suggesting or want players to do this but trying to get across to wargaming that this has to be fixed NOW ! and the only way to fix it is to remove/sack the moderator  and inform the players that this has been done. They then make a public apology to the players and potentially to be fair offer some gold maybe 1,000 to each of those who had been given a chat ban by this person.

:teethhappy: "a class action lawsuit for breach of human rights" :facepalm:

 

Please get a sensible perspective on the matter. You are not even talking about the same word as jabster, if people insist on behaving in a manner that they know will get them chatbanned it's their own fault, this has nothing to do with human rights in general or free speech in particular, this matter is pretty much irrelevant but a proportional solution would be a little language training rather than firing somebody, and no they really don't need to publically apologize for something this trivial or offer anyone anything for something they never were entitled to in the first place.

 

The biggest thing out of control here is your rant. There's just so much sillyness in there it was difficult to figure out where to start. Or stop.

Well if you actually understood the full context of what has been happening you would know this is not a one of or even a 2-3 people being chat banned this is a mod who is completely out of control who we have been told last time when they did a raft of chat bans was told but still has not learned. Now I am all for giving people a chance but that has to have a limit.

When players are getting chat bans just for trying to explain what the word means even quoting the Oxford English dictionary then I expect a mod to politely ask people to refrain from using the word for a short time while they go and Google the word themselves ( after all I do not expect a mod to just take the word of members of the community either but if many are saying it and using quotes such as the OED then they should have the intelligence to go check and then when shown it is ok to use the word apologise and lift the bans.

Now this mod did not do any of that the previous time and looks like they still have not as they are still handing out chat bans.

Now with all that evidence in this day and age yes if someone who is a lawyer decided to ( maybe they where one of those chat banned ) they may decide to take it further after all if they think they can make money they will.

So please get sensible yourself you do not know how others will think and what action they may take. Not one of these people behaved in a manner that should have given a chat ban after all we have forum/chat rules so go on show me where it says that using the word OXYMORON in general chat will result in a chat ban because it does not fall under any of the rules such as bad language threats racial hate speech etc.

 

Now if you want to call that a rant go ahead but think hard about what you say because stating what has happened and possible outcomes is not a rant.

Here’s a hint before you go off on one again. Try actually reading what the the OP said.

 

Oh and it’s probably best you look up what human rights and freedom of speech are as you seem somewhat confused.
