Oh ok so hate speech is bannable?
I'm ok with that.
Will you guys work more harder to ban the 1-800 LOVE spammers? As well as the scammers?
Yes, that goes without saying.
EDIT: You-know-what :)
Can we please make threads started by GOG staff stand out more? Threads like this one and the game removal warning threads would be far more visible if they had a blue font, or even just a blue icon like the newsposts do.
That was all I was going to say, but looking at the rules I actually have a question. Specifically, about this part:
What about content from or directly related to games sold on GOG? I'm sure there are already games sold here (Witcher, Huniepop, Neptunia) that include content that could be in violation of this rule.
Overall, I'm honestly not a fan of this rule. It's good to forbid harassment, intimidation, and threats. The rest of it, I don't know. It's all very subjective, and like I said there are games already sold here that would violate the rule the way it's currently written.
My biggest concern is over the "offensive in any other way" bit. Who gets to decide what's offensive? Going out of your way to offend people for the sake of doing so is something I wouldn't condone, and I understand that being against the rules. But what about people who simply have beliefs and worldviews that others are offended by? Why should they be forbidden to express or discuss their views, just because they don't match popular opinion? Who's to say that popular opinion doesn't offend them? I'm trying to make my point without any examples because I know any real example would derail the thread immediately.
There's been a couple of threads with a discussions on this in the recent past - I've attempted to find out from the community itself what the rules should be, what can be deemed offensive, etc. In all honesty, I didn't think we were going to reach a conclusion and we did not. It's something that's massively subjective and any rules imposed will never please absolutely everyone - hence this is something that's going to be handle on an ad hoc basis, as far as possible.
I just hope that the majority of you agrees with me on that we do need some rules, otherwise this community will never grow into a healthier one.
Sure we need some rules: no CP and no zoo pron.
Hope that helps. ;p
