    Soo, you boot up the game just to say, "Nah, f**k this" and then proceed to shut down the game?
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    I wonder if the Blizzard employees will sign the same document... then again they don't play their own game
    Yeah sure, it's a "woke conspiracy" to get right wingers banned

    Being a decent person is being "woke" now? Not harassing someone is being "woke" now? Not using slurs and hate speech is "woke" now?

    **UPDATE**


    I have clicked "Yes" to the contract multiple times since 9.2.5 launched and have subsequently been toxic* nonstop in the game and nothing has happened to me.


    Not sure if this is relevant, I have also ended every toxic exchange with "lol j/k"




    *Blizzard's description of "toxic" as described in social contract.

    Oh man, you're in for a surprise when you find out what freedom of speech actually means.

    You're free to speak whatever you want, just don't whine about consequences of being a dick afterwards.

    Works the same in RL, btw.

    Freedom of Speech does not protect you from retaliation if you use it to harass others.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    ^There are a lot of people who don't understand this basic concept and it's frightening.

    You've got to be really juvenile to see conspiracy theories in a simple screen reminding you not to be a douche.

    And ironically enough, the kind of person who thinks that being told they're not allowed to use slurs or insult other players in a privately hosted videogame is a violation of free speech or "wokeness" gone wild, is exactly the kind of person who we don't need in games like WoW. So I really hope all of you who voted "Exit" on the poll or made a fuss about it here actually did click exit and cancel your subs and that it's not just bluster before you go right back to playing the game. Nobody will miss you in WoW.

    Most don't to be honest as once you mention consequences to speech there is no longer free speech.

    That said even those in favor of lessening restrictions are not advocates for unfrettered speech. Usually people arguing dictionary definitions though don't really have a point and just want to list off a vapid talking point.

    I think there is a good argument to have that a game centered on war and death with a teen rating should have a rather relaxed policy to moderation .

    Why don't they need them when arguably this was the original audience that launched gaming to popularity?

    For all your bluster you seem to forget you went into their digital communities they didnt go into yours.

    Then no single country has free speech, because no single country allows absolutely anything to be said without consequences.

    Also, the point is that free speech is an irrelevant issue when talking about a privately hosted game server run by a privately owned company.

    You are right no country does and it's a tragedy I hope we are lambasted for that we allowed the internet to be as regulated as everything else.

    The fact you savor the taste of a free market boot over a governments boot isn't really the powerful argument to me I think you believe it is. Why would I want corporations threatening my speech more then I would an offical body? It comes across as a pathetic appeal to authority and a lesser one at that.

    It isnt a bizzare comment either I fully recall when gaming online started this sanitized shit pit doesn't resemble anything close to what it was.

    I do but it is worth thinking about why you believe what you believe rather then simply pushing it away when it makes you uncomfortable.

    Similarly, you should probably speak to some kind of professional about why something as simple as being asked not to harass and insult other players sends you running for the tinfoil.

    But you do you.

    "Freedom of Speech" only applies to the government. Blizzard is not the government. Companies like Blizzard can regulate speech on their games all they want,. People really need to stop misusing the term "Freedom of Speech"

    I mean I can easily tell you why. I don't see begin aggressive as out of place in a virtual environment about death,killing ,and genocide. I find it more bizzare that people would not just desire but expect that everyone would need be forced to speak kindly to them.

    I find an edge lord speed running every racial slur less annoying then the would be hall monitor.

    You do not really know what and how freedom of speech works, do you?

    Almost as if one is fictional and the other is an actual person.

    That's nice, but thankfully it's frowned upon.

    It's pretty clear not everyone understands it, and dunno why you think bootlicking somehow comes into the topic of treating other people decently.
