I'm having a hard time following what's offensive and what isn't, I don't understand why we are banning people for using the N word or F word when it's widely used IG, I've heard both words used relatively often and even seen it in videos in reports and such, if we can be mature enough to use it IC'ly why is it such a big deal on the forum if it's being used as a joke or in the lyrics to a song like Nishi mentioned, it sometimes strikes me as people getting offended on other peoples behalves, i'm gay myself and I don't really have a problem with the F word and I use it myself sometimes because as long as shit isn't personal and just for "banter" why even bother?
Instead of thinking said person is offending someone the least you could do is ask whoever is involved if anyone took offense before handing out bans or points.
And to address the 1.2 rule insulting, harassing, bullying and provoking is nowhere near the same as being offended by something, people get offended by the pettiest reasons on a daily basis, if someone calls me a faggot 10 times in a row and keeps spamming me messages whereever, yeah i'd class that as harassment, if someone says the word in a channel I don't give a shit and bullying ONLINE? Literally ignore the person or walk away from the monitor, provoking is kind of the same as harassment if you ask me at least.
I don't know i'm just ranting at this point but I thought i'd give my two cents.
