: As I mentioned in a previous post, people who are offended by a specific word or phrase should mention it to the people using it. The people using it should then have the sensibility to refrain from using the phrase for the remainder of playing with that person. Although you say something as banter, someone may have a traumatic experience related to that, and as such are highly offended by it. Just my 2 cents =P
in what world, is soemthing as serious as "I hope you catch cancer" a common statement, intended as light hearted competitiveness. Think in terms of elite sportsmen, if an AFL, Soccer, NRL player, etc, said that, they'd be sacked, fined and shunned by the world. If you want esports to be seen as serious, the whole game needs to turn around. Too many people use a screen as a shield. Go play a game of AFL and say "I hope you catch cancer" to the opposing team and see the end result. This is not light hearted, and no one should treat it as such.

: Jesus f**k, if this comes in to place, next thing you know someone saying "damn that's gay" is going to get banned. One person cries, they all cry. So thankyou, so god damn much, for starting the crying. I can't wait until I can no longer say jesus christ, or god damn, because I'm offending some Christians. People need to get to the point where they're not so insecure about themselves, and will understand that at the end of a day, after a comment like "Get cancer" you won't die, you WON'T just get cancer that day, life will continue. But instead you have a little boiling problem in your head asking for psychological awareness because you're too damn disappointed that people get cancer you can't deal. Everyone get's cancer, nearly EVERYONE has someone who is dead from cancer in their family. IT'S JUST A COMMENT GET THE F**K OVER IT OR WE WON'T BE ABLE TO SHOW ANY RECOGNITION TOWARDS FREE SPEECH. again, RageGrace, well done for starting a tribunal trend, you will be forever remembered in the archives.+
We aren't America bud, while free speech is implied, it is not a right of an Australia citizen. And if you really think that telling people to 'die' or 'neck themself' or 'hope your family gets cancer' is free speech, you've got the wrong idea. While I agree that people need to learn not to be so easily offended, there's a limit on what should be tolerated.

: I've been told on countless occasions that my family should neck themselves, funny thing is. my father pretty much necked himself. but, again, it's a god damn comment, if you can't handle it, you can't handle world. Why's this generation gotta ask for so much, why can't you sit back and just "yeah nah do what you want, at the end of the day i haven't died nor have i been ultimately affected by a comment that can be made any other day" What're you gonna do when some big dude wishes death upon you? Call his mum and cry? Tell your mum? Tell the police someone said "go die" like, you can't do shit, nor should you even bother. so why do we have to ask riot for so much all the time? Leave it at "if you clearly harass someone for an extended amount of time with many derogatory terms that aren't simply just an over-layed description then you will be banned"
'If you can't handle it, you can't handle the real world'... man, 90% of people I know, if you said half the shit people say in game, you'd soon hit the floor. But as has been said, in an online forum, that can be moderated, why would/should we tolerate this. And I'm surprised your so lax on something so serious if you've experienced it. Disappointing to be honest.
