Default People that censor themselves in-game.....

Alright, so I am playing TF2 and this guy was whining how he bought his graphics card at X amount (don't remember what he was saying, too busy healing people in Goldrush) and it doesn't offer VFM anymore, after that he decides to type:

"damn c*nts*

Cursing the company/card/whatever.

I replied:

"You mean ****s?"

Then he types: "Watch your language!"

wtf?

I don't get offended by profanity, both in real life and over the internet. God knows I use plenty of it in both realms... but for the life of me, I can't understand why you would say something offensive/derogatory and then censor it. I mean, doesn't that defeat the purpose of cursing in the first place? Who are you trying to protect? kids? Then don't say something in the first place. But whats with the moronic double standards?

Yeah, pointless thread. lol.

Heh, that guy wouldn't had lasted two seconds on the 2Fort server I was playing on last night. The admin was throwing back shots of vodka, the language was flying and no subject was safe. It was all in spirit of good fun, too (well, one guy took offense when religion came up and left...).

It depends on the server you're playing on. I know some server admins ban for stuff like cussing, maybe he just didn't want to get banned.

People who curse need to learn proper grammar.
