yes, but does CS now consider all and blue lives matter as insensitive profile content?


I am also interested in a yes/no answer for this question. E-mail notifications are on to watch for replies.

I'm also curious about this as the main post did note them as being dismissive/ offensive but at first they were allowed on site. I'd like to know if I can report people with these things in their signature and not be penalized.

    I would also like to hear this be explained further.

I'm an extremely anxious individual, I’m also not very good at expressing myself or talking, please be courteous to me.

I like the fact that you took your time and didn't throw something out to, as you say, jump on the bandwagon. It's a bit sad though that everyone basically is forced to make a statement at all.

    Strongly agree!
    Very happy to see a well worded statement put out though, rather than one that was thrown together to stay on the bandwagon. It's somewhat sad to see there are a lot of threats being made against those who are not speaking up/considered to be doing enough. There are plenty of valid reasons for people to not be speaking on the issue, it may not equate to racism.. (Like many twitter users tend to throw out) Some people just don't have the mental ability to deal with this, it's a stressful time for everyone worldwide and I think it's important for people to speak out but also just as important for people to be considerate that everyone still has personal life problems they also must attend to. We need to band together as the people to put a stop to this, not draw others away.

Same here. It was a very methodical yet conscientious approach to the subject matter, and “black lives matter” was not the only point made across, but ideas germane to the humanitarian issues at hand were acknowledged which is very appreciative.
The thing I love about the CS staff members ways of approaching difficult matters is that they take their time to come up with the best possible way they can approach the situation, given the consideration of all players, hitherto and henceforth.
I have never really understood why people are being forced or shamed into publicly stating where they reside on terms of this issue. I hope this isn’t a recurring confliction.
It’s simply outlandish and pretentious to call someone racist for not publicly saying what they’re doing to support the movement. In other words, it’s just extreme and unfair.
As a player uncomfortable with ever sharing their political and personal views/experiences on humanitarian issues on a site not meant for that, it’s best to respect others privacy as common courtesy. If they’ve said something wrong or offensive, then you have every right to be upset and report the user as you feel necessary. Your feelings are utterly valid.

I'm glad the staff actually took a serious stance on this. I was worried this issue was going to be ignored.

It's impossible to make an accurate costume that is "Native American," because they have so many different nations that all dress differently and there's no such thing as just one kind of Native American clothing. It's important to recognize the diversity within Indigenous peoples!
