Maybe you're right. I don't like when someone don't agree with me, but for sure there is more people which voted "YES - Apply" than wrote in this topic. I think they're just scared to write that they want this act, because they know that all persons which are against this "ACT" will treat them as enemies. So they prefer to be silent than writing that it's good act.
You say about Ignore button, and I say that you can use Ignore button on BOT... It's almost same.
Also not all players knows about ignore button. I know many newbies which just don't know how to use it. Also when someone's using cyberbullying then in my opinion deserve to be punished (with warnings and eventual kick, if he don't stop). If there is 30 players on, they all are not going to ignore peron who talks shit... That's why something like ChatMonitor is needed.
On other games like StarCraft, BF3 for one bad word you're getting ban for 7 days...
Also ACBA has nothing to censoreshit, since all words like:
- you fu**ing noob
- you idiot
etc. will be still leggal. You should know difference between cyberbullying and just insults. I have nothing against insults, but if someone abuse it, then he makes it Cyberbullying and it NEED to be punished. If someone talks: "you son of a bitch" then it's insult of someone personally life. If someone say: "you are fag", then it's insult about someone's sexual orientation, and it deserve to be punished.
But if someone talks "you are stupid" then it's not cyberbullying, it's just insult, and for sure there is no reason for warning if someone say it.
Well maybe you guys are negative to this act, because of point:
$3.2 Insults list (may be changed)
Maybe you think I'll add more words when this act be accepted. But it's not true. I'm not going to add more than this, and if I'll add something then it can't broke point:
$3.5 Players won't receive warnings for popular words like "fu****g", etc. EE2-Patch1.3 will have special script which be detecting if word is insult (Cyberbullying) or not. EE2 Government will take care if none is getting warnings for no reason. If someone get warning for no reason his warning may be removed, and script be edited to solve problem.
And btw. In my opinion EE2SA and GBSA is 100X more problematic than this act. But has been accepted in silence, and actually it did nothing wrong. It just helped a lot of times, for example with showing chat history in topics where it was needed.
