These offensive and personal insults are not representative of the kind of environment we want to provide or that we ourselves want to be part of here. And while part of our sense of community does include throwing digs and trash talk at one another for a shared laugh, there is a line being crossed between just poking fun at a buddy and being disrespectful both to them and to the rest of the server.
See our http://ea117.com/dcrules page for additional information about being respectful on the server. Do not make vulgar references about someone or about their family members, or displaying your own insecurities with homophobic insults, or telling people to "STFU" or "FU", or any insults which are personal in nature.
Pay attention if an admin is telling you that what you're saying isn't welcome here. Attempts to skirt these rules, or to ignore them when you believe an admin isn't listening, will be dealt with in temporary bans as needed.
The EA117 player community comes from around the globe, and from many different backgrounds. Everybody handles conflict differently. So we would also like to remind everyone that if another player is behaving in a way that needs discussion, please keep the anger and fighting out of the game and bring here to our Report Disruptive Players forum.
Tell someone they are a bad shot.
Tell them they couldn't hit the broad side of a parked Humvee.
Tell them your 5-year-old puts up a better flag defense than they do.
Or, you know, tell them how great they did on that last play.
Tell them you've never seen someone be such a huge support to their team.
Or tell them how when you grow up you want to be just like them.
But the vulgar and sometimes personal insults do not have any place here.
