Reporting people for stuff said in a private discord is so stupid and is just gonna stop people from wanting to play RGL. What is even more ridiculous is asking for permanent bans for slurs. “Hate speech” is free speech and making any other distinction is a very dangerous path towards just banning wrongthink.
I think that private discords are exactly that, private. What happens in them stays in them. Who really gives a shit if a couple of basement dwellers decide to say a couple gamer words in a private discord? How would you even find out unless you are actively searching for those gamer words? I mean come on, people have a freedom to say what they want in explicitly private groups.
I even hold the personal belief that you should be able to say the n-word and such in-game, since in the end its just a word, granted you aren’t using it as a slur and just a replacement for the word “dude” or anything casual like that. But do I really care? Not really. In the end its just a word, any power it holds over you is only because you let it hold that power of you.
The current rules are absolutely fine. The vast majority of people do not care about some people in private discords saying some funny words or whatever, and this is just stepping wayyyy over those boundaries of encroaching on free speech.
To the original poster of this and whoever agrees with him (and I do not mean this as an insult or anything of the sort): grow thicker skin. Stop letting things that barely affect you hold power over you, and you will both have a better time in RGL and in real life.
Have a good day everyone.
