    ok, good thread.

    Seriously, this IS an adult "game" and has been advertised as such. I have my beliefs and outlook on life and you have yours. There are things in this game I do find offensive. BUT...... I will not try to oppose my beliefs and outlook on life on others. If you really dont like what you see here, then dont play. Absolutely do NOT try to force your opinions and beliefs on me. There is no one putting a gun to your head forcing you to play here. If what you see doesnt fit you, yes you can talk to the devs about it, but DONT you dare demand they change anything to fit your beliefs and outlook. As adults, we are expected to act as adults. People all across the world play EU, and we must remember that. And with so many different beliefs and outlooks on life, we must adapt to the playing field if we want to continue being a participant in EU.

    If seeing a penis/vagina is something that you cant handle as an adult, then EU is probably not for you.

    PS.....I have had a 5th of rum, but this topic is a sore spot for me.

    I know people who have offensive names IRL.

    No one has the right to force them to have their name changed, while it's easier IRL then in EU. So why should a policy be forced ingame, which does not exist outside of the game?
    i wonder... can they refuse your use of a offensive ingame name if its ur real name that u want to use for say bussiness reasons....

    for instance say the legal name on my drivers license was Harry Cocknballs McVag and i wanted my ingame name to be that ...

    it would be kinda prejudice to deny somone use of a name simply because one language or way of life finds it offensive...

    maybe id be offended that u were offended and want me to change my name just to fit in to your "morale standard" or whatev's

    so now ur not alllowed to be offended by peoples names cause it might offend the person with the offensive name ... wow wait now im just confused...

    Offensive is cultural related. A lot of stuffs in this poll are not morally offensive at all.

    In Western Europe lol

    If you take a lot around -> there are more offensive things in our cities.

    You guys should check out the

    Most Phallic Building contest

    And remember the next time you go through a gate or exploring an artificial cave, a Grotto.

    In the old ages -> that is how people used to say Bxxb Gxxl Jxxcy Wxt in an architectural way.

    huhuh huhu huhuh If you really want a crusade -> try to bann those. Those are much large.

    The biggest offensive matierals on earth.

    I offend myself more than anything else. I've tried filing complaints, but nothing has helped - I still keep offending myself.

    There's a very well known (mostly because of his name) Brazilian geologist who's name is Reinhardt Adolfo Fuck. I'm not kidding. See this link

    I've always wanted to cite Fuck et al. I wonder how he would go using his real name here.

    I would say that if content is considered offensive by even 1 person then it should be considered for change/removal, otherwise ToU are useless ...

    So if I find your name to be offensive because it means fuck in some obscure language, and report it to MA, then you're ok with that? How about if your name just reminds me of my ex-girlfriend who cheated on me, and it makes me feel bad? What if I just dislike you as a person, and find you altogether offensive? Do you think MA should ban you because of that?

    I pose another question as an answer. Who's morals do we go by? As pointed out earlier, they're often related to upbringing and the culture you live in. That makes them VERY subjective in my eyes. How do we conform to the different sets of morals that we have in game?
