send out a memo about overbearing moderation
I understand you do not manage moderation, but consider this. If you don't, who can? That's like saying youre not held responsible for a workplace accident.
Today, I was timed out for using the words "foretard". It was Kitboga, and someone he was talking to was calling him ********. I could tell this by how deliberately he was saying it, as well as he spoke every other word correctly, fluently and phonetically. This was an insult to me, as I have brain damage, so i made a comment about it.
Scammer: "Yes get 4 tard"
me: "foretard? you mean 4head?"
timed out for one second
Quote by Oscar Wilde: “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
think about it like this, twitch. LGTBQ communities says gay, lesbian, trans, bi, and whatever the Q is, im not going to say, but here I am with brain damage and I'm not allowed to say what's on my mind, even though I just watched someone get insulted using a term that applies to me.
You need to tell these mods and streamers what leniency is. Just because they don't like a word, doesnt mean no one should be allowed to say it.
Isnt that what the profanity filter is for?
Isnt that what discretion is all about?
How about my first amendment right?
Sure, you can ban someone for cussing out the streamer, but when you tell a brain damaged person he can't say "tard", even though i was called that repeatedly on xbox live pre-brain damage, is like removing their first amendment. I am who I am. I would go back to my old ways before my accident and never use the word, but it is neigh insulting to watch someone say it, the streamer not recognize this, but I do, and then I get timed out. Thats like grounding one kid until he's 18 and the other for a day for going to same party.
You see my point twitch? You need to take what's called a "chill pill", and be more observant of what people say, and not what you think they said.
I bid you adieu, farewell, live long and prosper, and stop violating my first amendment right (even though you banned the military from playing in E-sports for banning people talking about war crimes).
Am I making any sense here?
The word "gay"isn't a slur. There is a slur that is used against the LGBTQ community and I am sure it is banned, just like racial slurs should be and ableist slurs should be. No one can verify who you are and your eligibility to use any particular slur while using social media like twitch, so it is probably better they don't open that can of worms. It would be a strange place if you had to prove your race, sexuality or a disability just to say an exclusive profane word. Besides, you being comfortable with the word doesn't mean everyone in your situation is.
Oh and a point I missed. Where exactly do I get away with saying "retarded"??
Gays use the word "gay" to describe themselves.
There's not really a situation I'd put myself in that would make me want to say that I'm retarded. Can you say,"Cringe"?
yeah. On top of that, I found this to be morally depressing. There's not a single opportunity in which I would like to reach out to others and say "retarded", except for now, and other than using it as a joke.
In the words of fly leaf,"I'm so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
I'm so sick
I'm so sick"
I have over 5000 pages of medical documents..... Don't you think it's time we recognize that ontop of trolls, theres also the people being trolled, just watching your streams?
Its like the fish that climbed a tree. Will you judge me, the fish, the tree, and yourself? or just the first three?
Take a look at yourself, and think outside the box youre trying to put me in.
It aint LGTBQ+ & schizo, brain damaged, depressed, unstable, border-line personalities, anti-social, insane, and.... well 5000 more pages of that.
No. It's just them. And they decide while I sit back and watch myself get alienated. I really think it's time you try understand, that words are just words. If they could start wars, I guess the pen really is mightier than the sword.
