You are not allowed to attack the actual player with racial/sexist/whatever insults, but as far as I can see what is in that screenie was not an attack at a player, just being a general douche. Might earn him a warning or something, but meh.

Yep... racial, sexual, religious or any other RL discrimination can get you in trouble (a warning, temporary or permanent ban depending on the severity of your actions).

More on the subject can be found on the banning policy page:

Severe offences may result in an immediate ban without warning; however, warnings may be given for first time offenses, followed by account suspensions of varying degree and ultimately a permanent ban if a player:

a. Is abusive, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, ethnically or racially offensive, or threatening to another player or an official EVE Online representative.

or at the Terms of Service page:

You may not use any abusive, defamatory, ethnically or racially offensive, harassing, harmful, hateful, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, threatening or vulgar language. (Alternate spelling or partial masking of such words will be reprimanded in the same manner as the actual use of such words.)

I don't think CCP has people monitoring every chat channel 24/7, so some people may get away with breaking the rules. If you think someone is crossing the line or is attacking you personally, you can petition that player, which should make CCP look into it.

Normally i would just add that player to the ignore list, personally i think it's wasting the GM's time which could be put to better use solving player problems.

In general don't do personal attacks on someone. Racial/Sexual slurs comments etc are things not to be done. RL threats on someone are definately not tolerated and are greatly frowned upon in this game.

Personally I hate idiots who throw out racial slurs like that online because they don't have to worry about getting beat up online, like what could happen in RL if you say that to someones face. So I say report them, show them that there are still consequences.

I'm all for insults and everything else, but keep it constructive and in character.

I think the real question is, why are you even reading local?

Nothing goes on in local but smack-talk.

I only briefly look t local to see who is in the system.
