  • You are not Gods.

    "Freedom of speech does not apply here?" Get over yourself R2. Its a human right to free speech. .Its in the constitution.Are you really trying to deny people a right that has been in place for centuries? I am calling for some legal advice, because you are not permitted to do any such thing.

    Don't be childish, will you? If you really want freedom of speech, will you satisfy their abuse of freedom? Pick your poison and think twice before you post nonsense.

      I m not posting nonsense, nor am I being childish. I believe I have a right to speak my opinion about what is happening. Being censored because of it is wrong.

        Should have thought of that before you agreed to the Terms of Service.

            Yes you are: making false reports, accusing r2 of nothing and so forth. Not to mention, GM will close this thread.

                Thats right, I made no accusation on here, false or otherwise. I simply asked if we were being denied a simple right that is in our constitution. Orphen20, maybe you do not have as much knowledge of the law as I do, seeing as I am currently taking my 2nd year of Law and Legal Practice in school and you seem to be trying to do nothing more aside from provoking people and throwing your own accusations around. READ the ToS, and tell me where I did not follow them.

                  Freedom of Speech, as outlined in the First Amendment, only applies to restrictions on speech imposed by the government. A private party, such as R2, has every right to restrict what is said on its forums. R2 is not a government entity, therefore the First Amendment doesn't apply.

                  However, that doesn't make R2's actions in the past few days right. Instead of complaining on the forums, make a statement with your wallet. Cancel your VIPs and then file a ticket as to exactly why you did (forum censorship headed off by ShadowGammaDraco). I did it on all of my accounts.

                        Rules specifically related to forum use are as follows:

                        1. Do NOT use offensive, unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable language.

                        2. There will be no discussion based on a national, political, religious, sexual or ethnic nature. Please stay on topic.

                        3. Please use the search function before asking a question. There is a good chance that your question has already been asked and answered. Do NOT create a new thread addressing a topic or issue that is already being discussed.

                        4. It is NOT allowed to make any false representations, including impersonation of any person or entity or misrepresentation of your affiliation with any person or entity.

                        5. Powerposting, spamming, bumping, and flaming will result in the post being removed without any further notice.

                        6. PM's and e-mails received are considered personal and are not to be posted on this forum or otherwise made public without permission from the person who sent the PM or e-mail.

                        7. Information from Tickets are private and can contain information sensitive to a player's account and as such are not to be posted on the forums. (However, requests for help with a particular ticket are acceptable, such as the ticket # and general explanation of the issue is fine.)

                        8. If you have a serious problem with any member of our community and you cannot mutually resolve the issue, please contact us here.

                        9. Links may not include unique identifiers used for referral/advertising.

                        10. You may use your native language when using our forums or games. However, we are a US based company so we can only offer support in English. When conversing in your native language, you still must follow all forum rules.

                        11. While we do appreciate player's enthusiasm for our games, and their eagerness to get things out to the players, what might be the case in the other versions of our games that exist, may not be the case in ours, and posting information from those games can result in false expectations of our version of the game. As such, information on other versions of our games is not to be posted in the forums and will be removed when found.

                        12. Players are not allowed to create topics including: account-selling / flaming / advertisement-of-other-games / pornography / key-loggers or any other illegal software.

                        Chat

                        Rules Related to "Chat" and Interaction With Other Users. Communicating in-game with other Users and R2Games representatives by text or any other method, is an integral part of the Game and the Service and is referred to here as "Chat." When engaging in Chat, you may not:

                        1) Transmit or post any content or language which, in the sole and absolute discretion of R2games, is deemed to be offensive, including without limitation content or language that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, nor may you use a misspelling or an alternative spelling to circumvent the content and language restrictions listed above.

                        2) Send repeated unsolicited or unwelcome messages to a single user or repeatedly posting similar messages in a Chat area, including without limitation continuous advertisements to sell goods or services.

                        as you see, Freedom of speech doesn't apply here,1. Do NOT use offensive, unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable language.

                        2. There will be no discussion based on a national, political, religious, sexual or ethnic nature. Please stay on topic.
                        in Real life yes you can use offensive language etc and politics to speak, here no. that has nothing to do with the game. and you only have the right to Free speech as long as your rights do not infringe upon those of others even in real life. i can dance and sing like a crazy hobo down the street flailing my arms because I am Free and have that right, until someone walks down the same side walk as me, do i have to stop swinging my arms? no. but they equally have rights to be protected from my hands smacking them, and since they have the right to be on public property, they can be where ever they want. but if that arm was to smack them as walking by, my arm would be responsible for infringing on anothers freedom and causing them harm, not because they didn't get out of the way when stampeding like a elephant bulldozing them down to the ground. again, that is in real life, this is a Private service where you agreed to conditions for using this service.
                        in this case, those other threads are infringing on the community and are False reports just to incite people to anger etc etc etc, so there are infringing on everyone else's privileges of being able to enjoy the game or seek help. so the privileges those people had to speak were removed as should be.
                        5. Powerposting, spamming, bumping, and flaming will result in the post being removed without any further notice.

                        anyone who can't accept this will have their privileges removed until you can properly handle yourself in the community
