The ideas behind the words are vulgar, excessive, and disgusting and have no place in normal conversation. That's the short version.

 

And that would be the case in a formal environment, which this isn't.

So?

 

You and others like you are not the morality police (and thank the void for that). You don't have the authority to make such a judgement.

 

It's about standards, decency, and self-control, not morality. It's true that people are free to behave like animals - to an extent, at least. It's only sad that that's what they decide to do. Of course, it will always be more pleasant to spend time with and more generally be in the presence of those who choose to behave decently.

Excess and vulgarity don't suddenly become preferable outside of the formal environment.

There isn't much you can do about people lacking maturity. Simply report them and sail on

I was taught vulgar language indicates an individuals word well has run dry. Lacking the necessary ammo, they load blanks.

Yeah...

 

Because people that use foul language are immature and lack values.

 

Spare me the lecture, welcome to real life where people do not do/act as you want them to. I don't share whatever values about language that some of you do, I don't push my agenda on you please spare me yours.

 

Have an issue?

 

Write out a [edited]ticket....

Exactly, it makes for a fine filler for when you need so enunciate a point, but when you just spam one profane comment after another at someone it becomes pretty clear that the aggressor has anything worthwhile to say and is simply just trying to make himself feel better by beating against a brick wall

No lecture here, you can talk however you want, just keep in mind that there are standards set by WG we have to maintain.
Profanity and language are like powdered drink mix and water. You need water to live and sometimes it's fine to mix in something to give it that extra kick, but when you have only that drink mix your mouth will be dry, powdery and you'll have nothing to nourish yourself.

Just report and move on.  They will eventually learn, or they will become extremely familiar with chat bans.

And that's the attitude that leads to the situation devolving into pure anarchy. There is a reason that WG has rules and enforces them.
You wouldn't walk out into the street and start spouting foul tripe at a random stranger you haven't met, so why should the Internet be any different? Anonymity? Doesn't exist anymore. Anyone can find out anything about anyone if they simply dig deep enough. Digital actions can in extreme cases lead to physical consequences.
So why take any risk at all? Just so you can have a few moments of self-gratification by calling someone an [edited] or a [redacted]?
Wargaming set rules for their game and forum, this includes use of profanity. If you don't follow their rules, you get penalized, same as if you were to drop-kick an infant or illegally download a car. Why bother discussing it when it's clear that at no point in the future Wargaming will say "**** it, this is a game about ships, so go ahead and talk like sailors, cyka blyat rush B xaxaxa)))"

I thought there was a chat filter WG has for children and man babies. Tanks used to have it. WG stance used to be don't read chat if you can't handle the truth.
