    People said it before the rule was changed? Just because a rule is set doesn't mean everyone will follow it. Still though, if an admin isn't on any player has the right to still submit a player complaint on someone repeatedly saying the hard r.

    There is just a small percentage of players who spam racial slurs just to be some what "cool", for the most part people are pretty chill with it, they dont really use it to offend people. I'm personally fine with keeping it the way it is, but maybe add a rule where you aren't allowed to excessively use racial slurs cause it does bring a negative atmosphere when someone uses racial slurs excessively

    fuck. you've got a point. I've just been here for a couple of years, and just hearing all this just doesn't feel right in my brain. I guess it would be fine to try a change. We need a more established rule though, I feel like excessive use of it shouldn't be allowed, like 3 times every sentence.

We gotta remove the hard r tho, thats just annoying :P
    The word has been held up to such a high standard that it will be spammed and abused for maybe a month or two. After that people will realize that the word isn't that special and move on.

    Copied from earlier thread I made:

    This is getting ridiculous, every game now there’s always people shouting out and typing hard r n-words and other racist things, why was the rule changed. One of the things I really liked about this server was the strict no racism rule, the games were fun and not so toxic. I’m not a big fan of political correctness but this is just terrible. Your not being funny or edgy by saying the n word and stuff, your just being a racist asshole. I can handle offensive language but I hate having to deal with it. I want to be able to play JB and have fun without having to endure a local meeting of the alt-right every 5 minutes. Please change the racism rule back to the way it was, it’s jist so much more toxic now. The n word really is terrible and has a long history behind it, you don’t have to be a black lives matter supporter to understand that.

    It's been a while since I've played, maybe around 4 months, probably last Christmas. When I checked back in this week, I was disappointed to see that the racism rule had been made more lax. I think the whole "debate" is uninformed and pretty embarrassing. The idea is that, if you use a racial slur jokingly, it's not racist. At least that's what the unwoke sheep here think.

    The truth is this: when you say "nigga," I don't know whether you're a racist piece of shit or someone who's just joking. There's absolutely no way for me to know, either. And when half the server joins in and says in their white voices, "Yo, why'd you kill me, nigga?" there's a no-so-subtle undertone that makes me uneasy. With the old rule, I didn't have to see that side of you guys. I could pretend that you were normal, respectable people. But now, when I come on and I here "nigga this, nigga that," it makes me ashamed to play on the server and talk to those of you who say it. If a non-black person said that to me in-person, I would stop speaking to them. I know a lot of you "woke edgelords" are gonna be like, "dur hur, black people can say the n word but we can't? now that's true racism." Mind my preaching here, but when a black person says a racial slur, I know for a fact that he isn't using it hurtfully. I can't be so sure when anyone else says it.

    It used to be super easy prevent that behavior. But the behavior is just a sign of the mindset. Changing the rule was an unfixable mistake, because now I can't ignore how many of this server's players are A-okay with saying ignorant racial slurs. Disgraceful. The same applies to people appealing racism bans and admins who have past bans for racism. Like what? You can't cure racism. If someone's been banned for it, all you've stopped is the behavior. You can't just ignore that and pretend that someone has truly changed. I've been sitting on this for a long time, but I find this thread the most relevant place to bring it up.

    Think about the new players to the server who think that's just how we behave, like a casual team deathmatch server. Think about someone who normally wouldn't say the n-word but hears all these cool and funny people saying it and feeling pressured into it. Think about a black person who spends 5 minutes on the server and bops right out, or those who never use their mic because they'll be told to, "shut up, nigger" just like they always get told in GTA Online. The best we can do is have the rule changed back and enforce it just as strictly as before.

    It's not difficult to not say the n-word. It's really not. It's actually super easy to not do it, so there shouldn't even be an issue. ,,,,, ninja edit to address "faggot," a slur that's also super easy to not use, also scares away and makes unwelcome anyone who's offended by it.

    When I was admin, And someone said Nigger, the whole server would lose its shit.
    That became a problem.

    At the end of the day, these are just words. Any word can be used to insult someone, hell these guys in chatbox use neck yourself.

    If someone is directly attacking you with using racist words or just being a total dick to you, admins take action.
    We want you to have fun and enjoy playing, If words upset you, maybe the internet isnt for you, or at-least our server.
    Our Admins will do whatever is needed to keep the servers clean in terms of no personal attacks or racist attacks towards a person.

    This is the internet and why should this bother you when you are playing a point and click adventure shooting game?
    I totally get your point I do, but its just how it is now.

    Unwoke sheep here.

    I will respectfully disagree. I have many friends who are African American and while I won't say it around them purely out of respect for them the word is not inherently racist. Servers seem to be fine doing it and the laid back rule imho seems to be one of the biggest breathes of fresh air that I've seen in a long time. But what would I know I've only been around 12 years. Anyway, I will freely use the n word on the internet and yet people at my job seem to like me as well as I generally get along with everyone I meet so I don't think you have any grounds to come here and say that we're all racist pieces of shit. If you feel so disgusted with yourself when you play maybe try a better server that will fuel the god complex you seem to have. Regardless I still consider your input valid and may e we will see something from the higher ups
