What's wrong with threatening to ban?

As long as you aren't banned for no reason by someone outside of their tournament, there is no problem.

The threatening to ban is not needed just because you have that function does not mean it's to be used as a threat

It's not needed, yet completely legal.

Almost everyone does it all the time.

I request these rules are rewritten as they leave too much interpretation to a completely retarded admin.

A definition of harassment would be a great start, because right now anyone can be banned at any time for alleged harassment.

One more rule, just for Chico.

  • Don't impersonate other players. Specifically, don't make your name the same as another person's. You're not fooling anyone, it's just a nuisance.

Can we get a better clarification as to what defines "profanity", so people can't plead ignorance?

like for example. "Negro" is spanish for black. But over here in America, its slang for black slave (or at least is assumed to be identified as such regardless of its true definition), and is just as much "profanity" as the word "******" is. (a quick google search tells me it is an offensive term, and is only really "okay" to use as a historical context). I don't necessarily agree with it, but if someone is actually offended by it, I wouldn't exactly be surprised either.

This is just an example mind you, there is probably a lot more that our filter doesn't cover either.

I don't agree with negro being considered profanity on par with its slang cousin.

As for the rest, I'd personally leave it to discretion and context. You know when people are saying things to try to be profane.

End of first episode of Arc V should have gone like this -- "Wait, did you just summon a bunch of monsters in 1 turn?" "Yeah, so?" "Well, isn't that against the rules?" "SCREW THE RULES I MAKE UP CARD MECHANICS WITH MY PENDANT"
