I am solely posting this thread to get the attention of someone in authority. I recently received a chat ban and was told specifically that the word 'crap' is profanity and not allowed in chat, and therefore was part of the reason for the ban. I know the forums are different than the actual game, so can someone with authority contact me hopefully directly but more so in this thread to outline the words considered 'profanity' by WG:NA. I was trying to discuss this through the appeal process, but my ticket gets closed without discussion. 
I am not seeking to override the ban, as other things I said were deserving, I am just concerned where saying "Crap, spot torpedoes.....smh" in response to a personal mission of spot torpedoes is bannable.

Please keep the salt down as again I have no intention of starting an issue or override a ban. 
I want a discussion with company leaders in the game about what is profanity according to their standards. 

Edited to include the screenshot of the word 'crap' being unacceptable.

I choose to believe this because of the hilarity.

So in other words one has to get inventive with their "colorful words" and use "long winded technical definitions", "foreign slang" or "Orwellian euphemisms"

Example: " a beast of burden from the equestrian family " ( at least until the algorithm can "learn" sarcasm or to "read between the lines". )

It probably has a bit to do with context and usage as well.  

"Good sir, [edited] your ship's progress or you will surely collide with those torpedoes!"

Crap is a bit different - "aw crap!" Might be ok but "I'm going to rip your head off and crap down your neck" might cross a line on acceptable conversation

If that report is any indication, I don't thing crap was the word that brought this about.

Unless it was something along the lines of "this is a crap team"

I got a "0-point warning that never expires" for linking  to a Claus Kellerman WOT video that had an inappropriate title. My post was removed. Claus is a WOT CC. 

Several days later someone posted iChase's rant video of getting focused by a CV for an entire game. The video had plenty of obscenities and vitriol. The post wasn't removed and had over 8000 views within days. 

Beats me.

I suspect it was '[edited]' that got you on the list.

Yup, notice how he left that word out when mentioning what he said in the OP.

I used to say that word a lot, and then I married a girl who is a special needs worker at an elementary school....

Thing is, although technically the word got the OP banned, it's the context that got him reported.

Imagine that, consequences for talking crap to a stranger on the internet!

Meh, "consequences." Oh be still my heart, I cannot share chat with a large group of what, he is not exactly wrong about, [edited] that drooled so hard I'm amazed they were able to install the game without shorting out the keyboard. It is largely why I have permanently turned my in-match chat off. And yes, being stopped from talking to people, and not having to see their [edited] grunts through the match, has improved the experience.

I am fairly sure that " company leaders " of the game, the CFOs, VPs etc don't sit around reading the game forum threads.

I see. I've edited the image.

It's a kind of misunderstanding here. Both sides are right, depends on the context. 
I guess you are right about that the word "c***" in the way you wrote it to the chat. It's highly unlikely to be banned for this.

But still, if you offend others with it, it may be the reason and in this context the answer in the ticket is 100% right. Generally it's still innapropriate in the chat.
That's why we use complaints for the check. Use them please if you see any personal insults.

Your ban was issued for the second word in the ticket, I've edited it. Because it's highly inappropriate.
Thank you for your reply. I hope I've clarified the situation for you and everyone involved. 
If you have additional questions, please contact me via PM. Because such discussions are not allowed by your Forum Guidelines.
