A rather lulz niggardly policy, if you ask me. A black eye for this forum.
Ladies and gents, management is instituting a new policy of "shut up with the racist bullshit." What does this mean for you, the user? It means that for offenses, including using racial slurs or especially targeting board members, will result in a 1 point warning infraction. If the behavior continues, this will result in a 10 hour RRP for the first offense. The second is 3 days. Third is 2 weeks. You get the idea. Management feels that this sort of casual racism has come to pervade these boards, and that is an issue and quite unacceptable. Before anyone brings it up, no, this was not tolerated on FoH either.
Please offer your feedback or criticism here or in the Ask Amod thread. Enforcement is beginning immediately. Draegan will be making a site-wide announcement later about the policy.

all words are equal, it's just some words are less equal than others.
AND SO IT BEGINS.
Seriously, there was plenty of valid discussion in that Travon thread.
I've been to a Klan Rally when I was younger. My girlfriends uncle was a Klansman and he invited me to "th' meetin for the menfolks". Bein a 16 year old horny dumbass, I had no idea what was about to happen. I was just happy that the grown men were including me.
That sir was not a Klan Rally.
But it's still okay for black posters to call other black posters "nigga", right?
This is way past overdue.
Are we still allowed to be racist towards gnomes? They aren't people.
so, we cant say nigga dick anymore?
I once received an infraction for a non-racist use of the n-word on FOH. This is the truth.
Oh, there it is. Yeah it deserved to be rickshawed, no argument there.
I thought you guys straight out deleted it which would be a whole different level of stupid.
Keep calm and carry on.
so is "crazy ass cracka" racist?

Why you testing me, Quin? Management says go west, we go west. Please don't fuck around.
I just don't like the sticky title. I'm pretty sure the internet is for whatever it's inhabitants decide they want on it... statistical racial knowledge for your area of living can help you make decisions that keep you safe, wealthy, and healthy.
example: My friends traveling in the middle east need to know where they should not go because of intolerance against whites/Americans/perceived Christians.
Perhaps "Rerolled is for porn, not racism"
I used to feel uncomfortable singing along to my nwa and onyx tapes :-(
Every day all of the non-caucasian board members will be PM'd a list of the most offensive post of the day made by the Chimpsquatters and be asked to vote on which is the most viscerally offensive. The winner of the vote either gets perma-banned or freed, to be determined by Tuco flipping a coin.
i am not a white man.
so i should be given immunity for this shit.
YELLOW IS CLOSE ENOUGH BRO
You built our railroads and didn't complain that loud about being "accidentally" blow up. You're good people.

What do you mean you can't target other posters? You mean I can't point out when someone is being retarded?
I mean don't target users with racial bullshit. Call people retarded if they are retarded.
I'm fine with banning racism, but let's please not become Something Awful, who takes the social justice warrior and ban hammer happiness to whole new levels of retardation.
So there are no misunderstandings, zero tolerance is zero tolerance. So please just don't use the racial slurs even when discussing the new Nazi modding policy.
What's the stane on racist porn?
I for one support our new nazi overlords. Yes it was annoying that Duppin and Tanoomba kept referring to Zimmerman as a racist over and over again. That many times it seemed to be implied that if we only were more colorblind, we would see how it was obvious that Zimmerman had shot Trayvon for being black. Yet that was far better than all the idiots talking about c****out and other bullshit.
FoH shouldn't be a contest to see who can say n****r the most. It was silly, pointless, and kept derailing the thread. Granted, partly because Duppin and Tanoomba would then engage those idiots.
Look I'm 100% for the no racism on the board...BUT if it's in the context of the discussion, please let that shit be. Like the TM/Zimmerman thread has a bunch of racist remarks, but it's in the context of the discussion. Besides, us black folk need to know how you white folk think.
what you'd expect
an asiansomeone good at math to say before he cuts you.
I'm a rebel!
This is stupid, let the racists be racists and then proceed to make fun of them.
Anyway, getting time for a new new new fohguild.org replacement if this is the direction rerolled is going. I say give Draegan & co. another six months - until January 2014. If it's turned into a new Penny-Arcade where you can't even call someone retarded (because you'll offend somebody) then lets start over with a new forum.
In the meantime if things get really shitty here there is always badforums.com - I think HateYou from Fohguild.org runs them.
So this means we can post porn in General?
"If this site starts being moderated even slightly like FoH was then it is time for a new site" You're a funny bro.
i have nothing against moderation. i actually think it's a good thing anyhow. it was fun while it lasted. too much racist lulz weakens it's effect. sort of like too much sugar intake will kill you over time and give you diabetes. you gotta take it little by little.
but tranny bashing is still good right?
Does this meen no racially funny memes in the FSR either?
Note my emphasis on Zero Tolerance. If you or Draegen were sending people to the rickshaw for being ridiculous and having an entire post consisting of racist, homophobic or other words (e.g. n..., n..., n.. or wtf). I wouldn't say boo, retarded is retarded. But blanket bans only lead to more blanket bans.
Anyway, I've said my bit - I wasn't even involved in that thread -)
damnit chaos, bring my thread back, it was mostly good discussion. now that you have this all encompassing no racism law in place, it should be fine. is it too hard to invest in a fucking "bad word" filter for this board? christ, ezboard back in the 90s had one.
Weeding our racism is fine.
Zero tolerance policies are universally stupid. Tell the mods to look for overt racism, have said mod RRP the person until a small tribunal (3) of them dole out a punishment if it's agreed it was bad. Don't do zero tolerance.
Did you fuckers learn nothing of all our discussions about mandatory minimums?
I'd rather have FoH back, at least then all I had to do was run an anti virus program to get rid of the stupidity instead of this shit.
The mods have become a bunch of retarded naggers.
so racism against blacks is banned, what about racism towards other races or discrimination toward religions? and there are a million ways to be racist without using any racial slurs at all. all i have to do is say something like, oh look at the line at that KFC, "those people" love their chicken.
so now that we all love each other. bring my thread back, please.
This site not only entertains me but it helps me be a better person.
is necessary to
get us back to a more
genial tone in our discussions.
Examples must be made to
reinforce our new standards.

and i dunno how the hell you can have a discussion in a thread about a racially charged trial without bringing out the racist comments, especially here where like 90% of the board are angry white men.
The policy is a work in progress. Management has changed to a 1 point warning infraction for first offense/inoffensive context use of the word. This way if the user didn't intend to be offensive or whatever, no one is hurt, no one is RRPd, and the user has plenty of time to plead their case with no interruption to access. If the behavior continues, the more harsh measures come in. The OP will be updated to reflect this change.
I'm still a little confused why I was retroactively infracted I am worried one day I will apply to a job and they'll pull up my rerolled rap sheet and go "oooh hohoho look here, looks like you were infracted for saying c****out2013" and I won't get it.
You were infracted because your post this morning, though it was last in a long line of casual racism in that thread, came to the attention of Management. Management was not pleased. Unfortunately you were the only one infracted so it seems like you are being singled out. That won't be the case going forward, and your infraction should expire soon with no impact to your account or future job status.
That's pretty racist. You shouldn't make fun of the way certain races/ethnicities/cultures talk (referring to the "hur").Selective memory from people up in hur.
I'll make this simple, don't be a racist fuck. If you want to talk about how someone said whatever in a trial, I don't care. It's about context. But there is a zero tolerance policy if you're gonna start posting like some racist ass hole and I don't care if you were joking or trying to be goofy.
Use your judgement guys and you'll be fine. If you want to make a few troll threads about doing and count the racial slurs or try to bait mods quoting huck fine. . Go ahead. The threads will be rickshawed.
You can make fun of anyone you want. You can call people retards and feel free to be assholes to people that deserve it, that's what we are here for.
Just font be a piece of shit bigot.
Also tad, feel free to start your own gaming forum. Rerolledshots! Gaming discussion based on racism, bigotry and shit gifs!
so why not use the word filter to auto remove all the naughty words delicate snowflakes dont like seeing?
Still preposterous. Infract people for calling others whatever the slur of the day is if you want, but any infraction/warning for simply mentioning the word in a non-racist context is fucking stupid.
Edit: Draegan's post makes sense. Not sure why I have some dumbass warning still in that case.
Own up to your shit, homey.
If racism is "offputting" to many members of this community, how do you think this pussy management style is received?
i had feelings before the med took it away.
Is it because the retard lobby is nowhere near as big as the nagger lobby?
Who's the real bigot here?
I don't necessarily have a problem with restricting the non-Screenshots portions of the board in regard to racial slurs to keep us "Google-safe", much as we've done with pornography, or to appease your own conscience if that's the case, but it seems to me that it is pretty ludicrous to allow me to view a picture of some guy's dick going against the flow of traffic (so to speak) in Screenshots, but I can't see the N word? I won't even go into the ramifications of allowing us to call each other fags and retards all we want still either, but at least let anything go in Screenshots.
Edit: And this is why it's just best to avoid General and stick to the EQN thread
The "we must have total freedom or nothing!" has been out of control and now we have a reaction to it thankfully. Eventually once this shitstorm calms down the mods will relax further, someone will decide to push the envelope again a bunch of idiots will jump on board and we'll go through this all again.
