Can you be banned for swearing or 'verbal abuse'?
What constitutes 'verbal abuse'?
Can I drop a few c-bombs in local and move on?
Racial slurs?

Riddle me this, wise ones.

Why risk it in the first place when there's so many ways to smack?

It's a theoretical question for the purpose of encouraging discussion. Obviously there is one correct answer and it could be found relatively quickly by reading the EULA however if 'why bother?' or 'rtfm' were to be used as an acceptable answer in every situation where it could be applied then a good proportion of the threads on internet forums everywhere would be nullified.

Fair enough. I'd assume threats on someone's personal life is bannable, and everything else I don't know.

Throwing slurs left and right doesn't do a whole lot of good to your reputation, but I've seen it happen alot so I doubt they're getting bans for it. That said, as long as we can police things ourselves by blowing these guys up at our own whim, the only thing that CCP should have to worry about are the guys who say they'll be intimate with your dog and set your house on fire.

In my opinion, the latter are best served by being denyed the intarweb and put to playing some solo game where they can collect hearts and coints untill their respatory systems shut down from excessive facial hair growth. Everyone wins.

Why do you ask? You can get away with a lot without being banned. Any half-decent CEO is going to get rid of you right smartly if you push the limits of good taste though.

Try to keep in mind the majority of EvE players are over 18. I suggest maybe going back to WoW, the kids love that sort of thing there.

I'm pretty sure you can get at least a temporary ban for sustained racial abuse but I'm not sure.

The truly professional smack talkers are able to reduce you to a keyboard banging, monitor punching mess by NOT use any swear words or racial slurs at all.

If anyone trying to smack me uses any swear words or tries to insult my religion or citizenship, I automatically win.

From my experience it seems simple cursing will get you a warning or three. Repeated offenses will get you a short term ban.

I think they take racial slurs a bit more seriously, but can't say for sure. I remember one guy was sending me homosexual emails and then naming his ships with very abusive names. After the 5th or 6th petition, he mysteriously disappeared for exactly one week and has never uttered another homo word towards me.

Ill never understand why people, especially younger people feel that the use of explicatives lend weight to their statements. Espically in the light of it actually does the opposite.

Most people that smack talk using "verbal abuse" is joking around, I did it this morning to a Huginn and Sacriledge, I was flaming them like hell, also acting like a complete r3tard, which resulted in both of them losing their poly fitted ships to a Rupture

I use verbal abuse mainly for more targets, and for how funny it can be, I haven't received any official warnings for it yet, but been gagged 15 times or so

Some player started randomly insulting me in a trade chat. He said a lot of nasty four and five letter words all of which ended up on my petition. He got a temporary ban (just one day) to spend some time away from EVE, cool off a bit and perhaps remember that it is just a game.

Maybe you should take your own advice and ignore him since it's only a "game"

it's just a game? What a lowgrade statement of yours right there, mkay? you understand how stupid is to say something like that? No? Think again, mkay?

it's just a game, it doesn't matter,.. it's just a life, it doesn't matter,.. it's just air we breath, but it doesn't matter, it's a song, movie,.. THIS and Nothing else matters (metallica) .. (I personaly don't like that song mkay?)..

so lemme tell you like this, it's only a game, but it DOES matter, so you go all emo and stuff about it.. so quit advicing others with bullcrap like 'it's just a game'. It obviously matters to you, otherwise you wouldn't care, you wouldn't petition, you wouldn't play, mkay?

and it matters to me too mkay? That's why I go *****ing about your post in first place? That's why I spend my time typing all this... you see I could be outside on the sun playing with friends or whatever, but instead I decided to stay at home and go all carebear about this game, because it's something that matters!! to me... (metallica was wrong) IT DOES MATTER, mkay? Laughing

do you take life seriously? Is playing soccer different from playing pc game? Do you take soccer seriously? Is there something you take seriously? Or do you JUST don't care at all about anything.

life is really up to you, you must choose what to pursue, mkay? Laughing cooking, socializing, going out, partying, playing games, it's not just a 'insert the thing you want to laugh about at people who care about it here'. mkay ? Laughing
