On my primary server there is a player who has a name that is a 'slur' against people with Autism. ASD is not something to be joked about, it challenges individuals and many families worldwide. Some people are very profound, some are mild, more than you think, and I am sure you know some of us. Personally its something I have lived with everyday, my whole life.

If this player was using a drug, race, or same sex derogatory a report or two and it would have been addressed. I have reported this guy 6 times now, tickets just get closed, and no name change happens.

I know my feelings are hurt when I see this guy, plain and simple. I am a grown up, and understand the issue is with the player who is an idiot, but I also take issue with the support team not stepping up.

Does BW not recognize disability hate? So slurs against downs, amputees, with epilepsy are fine?

It makes me angry we get all the effort for SGR, which is great, but if you don't fit in the box, they don't hear you.
