  1. This isn't Wal-Mart tho or a library, it's an online game/forum. There's a fundamental difference there. It's a game, they want to have fun. You aren't meant to be having fun in a Wal-Mart or a library or a classroom. Like I said, there is obviously a line and just being insulting/offensive is definitely not something that should be tolerated, but the idea of turning the forum into a strict and controlled environment akin to a library is not appealing to me. There are rules, sure, but we don't need to overextend those rules to turn this into the equivalent of a certain Russian dictator's Soviet Union (rest in peace Uncle Joe). Basically, just take into consideration the age group this game is meant to appeal to, and then think about whether what you are saying is realistic. Fwiw, I think the way that forum is moderated is mostly fine, I don't feel like it's either as strict as some people here think it is, or as strict as your comments indicate that you'd like it to be. I just think it's important to point out the big difference between a forum like this and the public settings you compared it to. EDIT: You really can't make reference to Russian dictators by name?!
  2. Even though (as far as I'm aware, might be wrong) the majority of the player base consists of teenagers/20+ somethings, this is still a game for children. That's not to demean the game in any way, the beauty of Pokemon is that everyone can enjoy it and there's undoubtedly a large proportion of players who are here for nostalgia value, but the concept of fictional monsters battling each other is something primarily devised for kids. Without meaning any offence, lighten up a bit. Obviously there has to be line but kids playing this game don't want to treat it like school, they just wanna have some fun. Your idea of how the forum should be sounds extremely cold and mechanical to me.
