    Save your fake outrage for something worth while, this isn't it.
    "Fake outrage"? No, I just think it's gross and not really good as an emote. If there was a /shit emote where you took a dump on someone, I wouldn't dislike it because it's rude, I'd dislike it because it's repulsive and unnecessary. If you spit on someone IRL, you get the shit kicked out of you. You shouldn't be able to do it with impunity in an RPG.

    Save your outrage for something that matters. It sounds like you're a lot more mad about this than I am.

    I agree, but I've just always hated that emote. I won't shed any tears if it goes away, it should've gone away a long time ago.

    Retail's problem is that it actually needs some sort of active moderation, which just doesn't exist with today's Blizzard. The GMs feel like a skeleton crew at best.
    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    without a complete overhaul and a separation of blizzard from activision, i dont see WoW doing well in the future. classic will save their MUA losses here and there, but retail has just gone to pure shit. gameplay, lore, story and community are all at an all time low. even the devs have given up, 9.1 made that pretty clear. i can only assume some of it is due to the toxic environment Blizzard has become, as environments like that crumble after a time. people have enough drama in this shitty Fomo, social media idiot driven world. we dont need it in our video gaming too.

    You'll be spammed with /e spits on you. Or some other emote like /rude /fart. Let's remove emoting all together cause people are so weak they let things in video games upset them? The goal of the emote is to convey a message. They'll still figure out other ways to get across the message they want to send. Do you really think this change will make any difference? If anything it has the potential to make it worse.

    I do wonder at the mental fragility one would have to suffer from in order to feel significant relief or triumphalist glee at the removal of this emote. I can't imagine most well-adjusted adults would react in that way. Imagine being fine with your character stabbing or burning other player characters to death, but getting upset when they /spit on you.

    Actually, imagine explaining it.

    "They wanted to make the game feel safer so they disabled an emote that let you spit on other players"
    "But you can still fight other players and kill them though?"
    Yeah"
    "So you can stab them and make them bleed, burn them, execute them with swords and axes, set wolves on them while you shoot them with arrows, give them plagues and diseases, curse them, flay their minds with shadow magic, and a whole lot more?"
    "Yeah"
    "But spitting on them is a step too far?"
    "..."

    Justified tbh. Remember when people used to exclude people who bought The Retarded Horse (the first storemount added) from pugs? Same thing happened with the transmog masks in MoP.

    Microtransactions have no place in a game that already has a subscription model.
    They're (short for They are) describes a group of people. "They're/They are a nice bunch of guys." Their indicates that something belongs/is related to a group of people. "Their car was all out of fuel." There refers to a location. "Let's set up camp over there." There is also no such thing as "could/should OF". The correct way is: Could/should'VE, or could/should HAVE.

    I don't really care for the emote but I'm kinda surprised that its still around. The only use I've seen of it is when Asmongold told his viewers to spit on everyone who rides on a store mount. In Hearthstone they also removed the ''Sorry'' emote because people never actually used it to apologise, but rather to bad manner their opponent when they get super lucky and win the game or something. Both cases its just to infuriate your opponent.

    WoW developers are more and more clueless. Am I paying my money so they can meaninglessly rename items, am I paying my money so they can remove vital features from the game? What about creating next addon? What about timely delivery of quality content? Is it too much to ask?

    if you think a spit-emote is a vital feature of the game, you got problems my man...

    Some people on this forum:
    You use /spit on people - 'OMG STOP HARASSING OTHER PEOPLE!!!'
    They delete /spit emote - 'OMG stop being childish about deleting it! It is just an emote so who cares??'

    If it's not a bug it's probably Blizzard testing the water to see the reaction, and if the reaction is bad they'll just say it's a bug.

    lmao what point??? I'm explaining why I don't like the emote, which has nothing to do with your little tangent. I didn't respond to it because there's nothing to respond to, you're arguing with something that's not even what I was saying.

    Let me state it in no uncertain terms: I hate the /spit emote because it's unnecessary, stupid and disgusting, and spitting on someone in a role play setting is grounds for being attacked. I don't hate it because it's "offensive" or because of some imaginary SJW boogeyman ruining your games, I hate it because it's not necessary as an emote. I wouldn't want you to be able to shit on people with an emote either, by your logic I must think shitting on someone is worse than murder.

    Thanks for the laugh.

    In any case, pretty pointless change. If people are so easily triggered than an emote sets them off, they should probably stay off the internet. Not that I agree with the ridiculous bandwagon of spitting on anyone who used a boost, but nobody should care enough to actually get bothered by it. If it takes up too much chat log or something, just turn emotes off.

    Look at this thread and the sheer amount of "anti-SJW" crap people are bawling about when this has nothing to do with the left at all. This is entirely because people were using it to grief with an add-on and they probably realized that the emote doesn't really have any context except griefing.

    I swear to god, the evil "left" lives in your heads rent-free. I've seen so much more complaining about this pretend boogeyman group that ruins all your video games than I've seen said group actually doing anything. Any time anything gets removed or changed someone will find some juvenile way to explain why it's totally the "woke media" despite the fact that nobody asked for it in the first place.

    Businesses have always tried to pander to the popular opinion for brownie points, this isn't anything new and doesn't have a political lean.

    The /spitting is also being done by consenting adults.

    By playing the game, you're consenting to whatever emotes a player decides to use on you. Don't like it? Don't play the game.

    There's a reason custom emotes are censored for the opposite faction.

    I mean I understand both sides of the argument...doesn't do anything to fight sexual harassment, but at the same time why do so many people have to be salty about how others spend their own money?

    I thought Classic was supposed to bring back this awesome community of yesteryear? Seems like it's almost more toxic than even live is...

    It is to stop cross faction communication. Nothing more. Nothing less. Playing the game also has never meant anything allowed can be done otherwise Blizzard wouldn't silence, infract, or implement game changes based on things players do. You know like when Blizzard changes the addon API to block behaviors that Blizzard doesn't agree with.
