Language, look in your own backyard first

How on earth can we have a language policy banning even the most subtle exclamations, when at the same time we've got the servers throwing profanities like "Forking F12-noob" at us?

I have been a faithful player over the last decade, but this hypocrisy (along with the mushy "F12" rules) is making everything less enjoyable.

Exactly which server were you on?
(Please note that language policies vary from server to server as well.)

One thing many people seem to miss is that this game is not centralized. For the biggest part, every server has their own rules, which are made up by the server owners, usually the hosts.

Some servers have more severe rules set in place while some are more loose. Some have pure manual moderation while some have, among other things, language check filters. I do agree that some servers have these filters set to extremes, blocking messages that include words like 'god'.

Whatever the case, if you disagree with specific server's rules or settings, I would advise you to take your feedback to said server owners, preferably by sending them a private message wherever they are reachable.

yes, you're right. I wasn't really aware that different rules apply for different servers, so I may be mixing up things.
