Where did I ever say "hate speech is OK"? Read what I said carefully...

I simply said MOST people disregard the TOS I never said that I do. I abide by it. Also hate speech was under the umbrella of real life threats and such. I assumed you would place hate speech under that. Aside from that, yes it is reportable, which is exactly what you should do if you wish, I just add to ignore if it doesn't offend me.

I do abide by it, and never said other people are entirely free to say as they please.

I would like it if General Chat had the full selection of options for right click reporting as well. All I get in General is Report Spam, not being able to choose is meh.

I would take that job, sit at home monitor the chat channels with a nice "Ban-hammer" while waiting for my PvP to "pop". What this game needs is the Guide program like Everquest used to have. People would apply to be a guide and they would go through in game training to handle tickets and issues within the game and if they couldn't handle it as a guide or senior guide they would elevate it up to a GM. Oh did I say they were Volunteer's?

I must say that the General chat is just horrible, I was going to get my son his own account so we could play together but I have since changed my mind and that we will just play another game together instead while I play this one solo.

Sad, as he is a BIG Star Wars fan and has all the toys to go with it. General chat has ruined this for him.

Through the travail of the ages, Midst the pomp and toil of war, Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.

People need to toughen up and stop getting their little feelings hurt over every little thing, some times people aren't going to like you or your ideas... and they're going to tell you about.
Wow, entitlement much? Try civility as an alternative to boorishness. You might be shocked at the results. It's also quite liberating for one to know that one isn't the center of the universe. Cheers!

for me it's not the language people use, because I can out-do pretty much anybody in that respect and I don't care... it's the retarded 12-years olds that go on and on and on about the stupidest crap in the world. They need to just remove that channel altogther, imo.

Seriously though, the internet is a cesspool. Even with rules and regulations and an EULA for the game, people are still going to post terrible things that will rustle your jimmies. Nothing is sacred when you are anonymous.
Asking for volunteer moderators is a horrible idea. I can't wait to see volunteer mods abuse their power! Yay!

Honestly, you have the ability to not only ignore offenders, but report them, and you can even leave the chat! It's like leaving a room when people are saying offensive things, only it's for the internet! It's just like magic!

You're asking for martial law when it's really not necessary. Here is how you fix things. Don't feed the trolls, use the ignore list for what it's supposed to be used for, and move on.

Look, I get it. You want the community to get better. We already have a way (reporting and ignoring) to make it better. There are so many things that need to be fixed in this game. Please don't make BEAware waste resources on trying to police chat instead of working on actual content.

you know, its been said many times that it only takes good people ignoring evil for evil to win. yeah, this is a stretch... but its time for people that are sick of this behaviour online to take a stand..and thats what this is. so maybe you need to grow up and let people stand up for what is right... and not just roll over and let jerks get away with it like you want to do. so.. keep burying your head... see how that works for you. at least some of us stand up for what is at least respectful to others and think that is what everyone deserves.

I have played a jedi up to lvl 50 on a normal american server, didtt see anything offending in generalchat.
I have played a bounty hunter to lvl 50 on eu pvp server, noting bad in general chat.
Im now levling another jedi on an european pvp server, nothing bad in general chat here either.

Im happy bioware put people on developing game instead of monitoring general chat like a kgb agency making sure nobody say something thats not political correct atm.

This is storm in a glass of water, nothing to see so carry on..

I'd rather have people working on in-game tickets 24/7. For gen-chat stupidity and douchiness, I can either quickly ignore or just turn the whole thing off.
