Default Swear words

"*Compromise* *That foul smelling stuff on the sole of your shoe* - happens," i assume you are familiar with the Phraze. So why is it that whenever i type afore-mentioned turn of phraze or utter any hard-core swear - I am chat banned rarther than the system omitting it (And it does this for most "Lesser" swears)

Because this is an all-ages friendly game and the developers decided to take action against those who cannot control their typing instead of enabling them.

There is no "rule" as such. Some companies have decided to go that route, but it is far from being an established "rule." This company has decided to make its own rules and they have that right.

Does it matter why? It's in the rules you agreed to follow when you signed up for the game. As for frak being allowed, that's because it is part of the show.

The chat ban, is highly annoying and restrictive to gameplay. I occasionaly forget to Asterix out my curses, and i am punished by being unable to do anything that requires 2 people.

You forgot about not being allowed to talk about puppies, kittens, sunshine, and butterflies in a mean manner.

Regulation of speech is so morally relative... they could pull any number of reasons for banning someone.
