Note, I didn't say "Cape". I said "Synonym for 'Cape'", since the real word is filtered (because it contains a bad word inside of the word) and I did not want to get in trouble for bypassing the filter. Even if they don't usually ban people for that, I still play by the rules.


Oh. Well I didnt get past the filter. D-rap-E is in fact one of my favorite artists. Yep.

Also, Chromi is pretty well known (the male dragon that takes female gnome form)
Actually, a fairly recent issue of the WoW magazine confirmed that Chronormu (aka Chromie) is a female dragon with a male name.


Really? That's a shame. It was far more interesting the other way.

Some things aren't meant to be discussed in a game rated T for Teen?

Blizzard can control their content, they need to be pretty firm with what things we can say.
Discussing that isn't a violation of the teen rating.

I love dramatic zoom-ins on sentences. My day has been made.

Either way, I was merely explaining why we can't talk about certain types of curtains/capes, nor can we dare mention purple fruit.

All because some fool of a coder doesn't know how to properly code a regex statement.

LOL!

If it were a violation of the teen rating, then the local newspaper (I live near Pittsburgh, PA) would be M-Rated.

You got my joke right? Suddenly my tricking the system is now a favorite artist?

And I dont think its about lazy coding, so much as it is as controlling the forums with an iron fist.

About time a shelterred little kid such as yourself posted. I'm amazed it took so long.


I'd wager I'm at least double your age IRL, if not more.

Western civilization is rapidly crumbling, and the Eastern world is rising, precisely because the West is morally insane. It refuses to either defend, or even accept, the most basic elements necessary for human society to flourish.

When you are born male, you ARE male. No one outside of lunatics has ever, in all of human history, claimed otherwise.

The unwillingness of the West to defend objective truths concerning being human is, again, why it is rapidly failing.

Blizzard has so far chosen to not pour gasoline onto fire by legitimizing the ingame usage of a word which is, in reality, nonsensical.

Good for them.

Woah woah woah, who ordered the rhetoric? This is a forum for a video game.

Typical American culture- lots of violence and no mention of sexophones.

does not describe "transexual" in any way.

"Offensive" is subjective. Which is why Blizzard has the censor in place.

I always ask people with that view:
"why does X have to be for Y" X being object being discussed that is supposed to be limited to a certain gender, and Y being the gender.


I like to wonder why 0! = 1 sometimes. logically it makes sense...

5! = 5*4*3*2*1
4!=4*3*2*1

so 5!=5*4!
so 4!=4*3!
so 3!=3*2!
so 2!= 2*1!
so 1!= 1*0!

so 1!=0!. 1!=1 therefore 0! = 1.

reality is...the above isnt why. the actual reason is "by definition".
