At what point does vigorous debate ever violate the TOS? I believe you to be in error. but even if it does have a place in the TOS where the spirit of debate and conflict is suppressed (if I were EVER to find such be sure I would be gone from this community that instant) you seemed to have misunderstood (whether you did this wantonly or negligently I leave for you to decide) the key word in that sentence. That word is SHOULD . That it is done in reality I doubt not. The ideal though is that NO individual nor ANY other party, community, society, collective or group, SHOULD ever have the authority to deny debate on an idea or philosophy. Giving any such person or group that kind of authority leads only to the suppression of ideas and hinders delays and retards the natural progress of human understanding. Do you wish to give anyone such power over you? I thought not.
Nah just going to keep reporting people who do any form of sells, it’s destroying the game and giving items to people who don’t deserve it. Casuals who get carried, get fully geared then come on the forums and complain about the game being boring/easy.
So no thanks, hate boosters or people who sell for gold.
That sort of thing is not idle banter. Period. It is reprehensible and does not belong in game, or even in reasonable society. People should not have to turn off chat to avoid it. They should report the person so they are properly rejected from the community.
Profanity, masked profanity, racism, gender based hatred, nationalism, etc.
Trying to normalize hateful people is not ok. There is NOTHING ok about that stuff ever.
You might want to read the rules you agreed to. The forum code of conduct has the most detail.
Your personal blog might be wide open to whatever, but the game is not nor should it be.
I wonder if all boosting is going to get banned eventually. Kind if like when Blizzard banned multi box software. People still were able to multi box using hardware tricks and what not. Then Blizzard banned that as well.
Only way you can do it now is 100% manually essentially on one machine (alt tab, multi window, windows 10 hover to activate a window function) maybe 2 machines (1 hand for each computer basically, which some people can do that). Anyway (not the main focus here).
They may getting ready to ban all of it. Who knows but that would be really really hard to enforce unless they are about to place trade limits on an account per day for gold trading to combat RMT and bots.
Runescape had to do that due to RMT a long time ago, and they almost went belly up over it. Banks were blocking credit cards cause they would see runescape subscriptions then the gold sellers on their bank accounts with the CC number often times getting stolen. They saw 1 so they knew the other was coming so they started blocking everything.
Not saying blizz would do that, but just a key bit on some history there with another game.
