Across internet games-land, you’ll find a hefty number of loud, small-minded individuals who love to use assaultive language.
Those people are not welcome here.
Assaultive language is the kind of language which draws on the wider, real-world cultural specters of brutality, sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and the like to make people so uncomfortable that they cannot have a productive conversation.
If we think you’re using assaultive language, we are going to shut you up. We’re going to shut you up pretty goddamn hard.
