Jagex's Chat-Watch Will Mute Your AccountImportant
Posted 10 June 2013 - 09:16 PM
HOWEVER, this system is muting accounts that speak offensive language in PRIVATE messages, in PRIVATE chat.

If only it were that simple imgur..
Not sure when this took effect, but just a few hours ago I was talking to my friend with what I assume would be labelled offensive language and nothing happened.
This is a huge push for third-party chat software, not all of which is safe. I would think the legitimate risks behind turning someone on to third-party software outweigh the abuse a foul player may dish out before getting banned via a report message.

Not thought out at all. Pretty dumb in my opinion.

What's so wrong with that? It's pretty stupid to auto mute people for using language you personally disapprove of. We're not little kids who need to be told by our parents what to say on a god damn online game.

They're trying to babysit us when we are more than capable of handling inappropriate players ourselves (ignore, report, etc..)
I cuss to my friends in P.Ms all the time and it's a two way thing, and it is not inappropriate to me at all.
Also, "damn" has never been blocked as long as I have played, which is surprising. Does that mean that's appropriate to say? To me that's at about the same tier as S***. Also "gay" has been blocked. Again, subjective and the controlling of the game is just ridiculous.
If you have a problem with the chat, you can turn it off, to Friends Only, Ignore, report, or even Quickchat worlds! This sensor IS BROKEN!

And it's not like it's something you're saying in Public. It's to a friend, who could be taking it lightly and you're just messing around with them.
It's like Jagex doesn't want us to continue playing this game anymore lmfao.

The only message it sends to me is that I'll no longer be contacting my friends through RS PM.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

On a serious note however, I think they have gone a little overboard. I agree that stopping RWT (which was meant to be done in an earlier system Mod Weath and a few others were working on) would be an excellent idea for this kind of thing but extending it into private chat'd offensive language is going a little to far. The option to turn of profanity filter was put in for a reason and this just contradicts part of that reason.

Utterly ridiculous before you open the can of worms that already is partially open about how this incompetent company approaches many of their more trivial rules. I don't see how they could look at an aging, dwindling base and think "we should introduce more policies to treat them like children". Orwell wasn't writing manuals boys.
