if eve is about to evolve into hko, does that mean if hko worsens it will turn into eve? Neutral
Don't worry. I've been saving my everstones for a moment such as this.

Hot Coffee wiki

Because something that can cause such a controversy can cost the company more then a simple fix that edits out certain words over one of their customer's becomming offended by the change in attitude of that company towards something. You can be offended towards just a word or not be bothered by it, but it doesn't take much for an entire region's goverment to put out more stricter standards making it more difficult put out a product on the shelf and costing that company potention income from a larger market (even though EVE is available for digital download, the concept can apply towards any media for games except in japan where anything goe Rolling Eyes).

edit: Just remembered WTF license plates as an example from a couple years ago. Seems silly, but it did cause a commotion somewhere

This isnt new.

The game has always been run by lame pantywaists with respect to user expression.

But the devs like to pretend they are bad ass in public.

OP really does have a point. The word that tradionally goes before "and pillage" is not a swear word although it certainly is a word that describes an horrific and despicable act.

If you are going to censor that word then you should also be censoring all words that describe despicable acts, like 'murder','stab','shoot' and 'kill' for instance.

For those saying it is just a game, this sort of censorship infiltrates your entire life not just internet spaceships.

It seems to suggest that removing the language used to describe something will make it go away

Personally I don't think any of the words most people would consider offensive expletives should be censored either but I can fully understand why they would be. Perhaps we should ban 4 asterisks, since in essence the semantics are the same. We usually know what someone is suggesting, and if not can substitue a suitably offensive word of our own. Then we can censor random collections of punctuation marks after that and so on.

However, the word in question is never used as an expletive it is utterly sensless to censor it.

What a ****ing stupid ****ing world we live in eh?
ugh
