Recently I've noticed an uptick in comments containing racial slurs, racist remarks, sexual remarks or innuendo. Let me be clear: comments of that nature are not acceptable here. At the least, users who engage in that will get a warning. In many cases, it will result in a ban.
If you feel the need to harass someone or make derogatory remarks about their race, or if you feel the need to make derogatory remarks about any race, leave now. I will not tolerate racism on this site.
If you feel the need to make sexual remarks about another user or a user's build, leave now. That includes comments such as a build causing sexual arousal. It's not just inappropriate for this site - it's juvenile. I will not tolerate it on this site.
Some comments of this nature have slipped past previously. We have two staff dedicated to moderation, handling content generated from over a million user accounts. It is difficult to catch everything, but I would like to. In light of the recent trends, I'll be building out more automated means to identify these types of comments. Reporting comments of this nature also helps us significantly.
Everyone is welcome here, regardless of their gender or race.
