Fine, so people may use any user name, however offensive it may be to anyone (and judging by you post racism is ok too)? Most people gladly moved on from the “it’s ok to be as offensive as you like cos hey, any free speech is good” sh1t decades ago. Believe it or not most people come here to play cards and would prefer to do so without having to cringe at some retard’s attempt at bad taste or offensive humour. I believe Unibet do have some rules preventing this and rely on the players to highlight issues, if it bothers you so much perhaps you can find a poker site that allows all manner of racism, homophobia, sexism etc (but I think you will struggle!)
Where are you from? Sweden or the UK? I cannot believe someone really tries to make a point with the old "get with the times, we're living in [insert the current year], don't be so racist, homophobic, sexist"-gibberish, but well, here we are and I'm replying to it. By the way, you forgot transphobic, xenophobic and islamophobic, be a little more inclusive, bro...
This is not an issue of free speech as Unibet can block whatever they want, however the policy here (on the community and in the poker client) was always to keep the worst cuss words and insults out and let the users express themselves freely. I think that's OK and a good policy. What some guys are then doing, and this includes you, is to push the boundary even further and complain about stuff you personally don't like.
And now comes the point: Your personal emotions are not the benchmark for acceptable behaviour. Poker is entertainment for adults, not for kindergarten kids. So of course, people should be allowed to express themselves in a different way as well without someone trying to nanny them. You think someone made a bad joke? Well, someone else might find it incredibly funny! That's the beauty of a pluralistic player pool. I assume you pride yourself on being a tolerant person, so instead of enduring an alias you don't like, you scream for censorship? That's preposterous.
Obviously, this is an alias Unibet doesn't agree with and a message it doesn't want to spread. Sad!
I have blacklisted *aids* in general now, so it can't be used in any alias.
Thanks for reporting
That's pretty amazing. As a Finn, kinda find it hilarious, that a something that is not a curse word, gets banned because of suggestion from a guy who's own forum alias actually is, and cannot be used in the client.
Yeah wishing someone to catch a deadly dicease and cursing at the same time is just like my random alias here with 2 posts. You must the funny guy telling people to catch cancer etc. @Rushbie Feelsbadman that you are allso a finn. You must be from jyväskylä or something.
Well, first of all, I do apologize for replying to first time poster here with sarcastic manner. Gotten used to fellow countrymen's sense of irony, and somehow assumed it was the case this time too. Honestly, thought that was just some guy trolling the thread Sorry, and welcome aboard man. My bad.
But the actual point was, that some lovers of ladies open water swimming for example, can't show their support to their favourite team as much anymore, or play with their name here, in case they are in it
See where this is going? Can't even imagine the list of things in the future, that are banned from aliases because some code of mental destruction (wrong letters in a row) is found in them #feelsreallybadman
But not going to continue this any further, it's pointless to waste time on this. Have a great day,yall!
