I feel that this rule needs to be clarified. Earlier tonight, I witnessed a user getting kicked for saying "frick". I'm not sure when that became a "curse word", because I've seen it (and even more offensive speech) used several times on VeteranCraft in front of other staff members. I'm just wondering what is and isn't considered profane. It's not like the rule-infringing user directed the word towards another player. It was just said out of frustration, if I'm not mistaken.

So yeah. What's okay and what isn't?

Thank you. :)

The point is, we all know that he doesn't truly mean "frick." He means the alternative, and we have punished several times before for censoring curse words just to get away with using them in the public chat. It's still cursing, in the end.

To clarify, yes, I did let Erikteen use frick when I was the only moderator online. It was a mistake. It won't happen again. The issue comes about when he questions the decisions of another staff member. LightWarriorK made the judgement, and it should have been listened to without any fights.

For further clarification, no, "frick" is not okay because it is a censored version of a banned word.
