It’s not actually that complicated. The first amendment only applies to the U.S. federal government, it does not apply to private institutions, Australia, Korea, or any other country in the world. The first amendment merely states that the federal government can’t censor a person or a private institution. But a private institution could censor a person on their property or using their services.
We say it like if someone reads the letters “kys” that they have a 99% chance of immediately committing suicide. Most human beings are more mentally stable than that. If a string of letters was the difference between you and death, then the problem isn’t the letters, the problem is your untreated depression. Every single person that I’ve ever seen on overwatch otherwise has never killed themself because some player typed the letters “kys”.
But instead of treating depression which can actually cause irreversible long term physical damage to your body due to its side effects such as malnutrition, stress and mutilation, you would rather target negative words from other people. It’s not victim shaming to say a person with depression needs help FIRST.
There is something really destructive about this generation that it wants to victimize itself as much as possible. It’s a well known fact that no one is perfect, yet everyone considers themself a martyr. And everybody wants to bypass due process of the law just to put extreme punishments upon minor crimes like speech that you disagree with.
It’d be like instead of sending millitary recruits to bootcamp, we just kindly ask warring countries not to try to kill us. If the untrained soldiers die, we just blame the enemy country and pretend like sending soldiers to bootcamp is “victim shaming”.
Whether or not what these people say is against the rules, you still have to prove that they said it. Otherwise you could easily say, I don’t like you, I’m going to report you for using racial slurs. Proving that these people broke the rules is the reason why these systems aren’t as efficient as you would prefer.
Instantly an innocent player is permanently banned from the game all because you got upset that one time some random guy on the internet typed the n-word into match chat which you could have muted, but chose not to.
