It took me a while to fully understand the whole bomb of text on your post lol. Anyways. I can understand what Peithne was thinking and i respect his actions. Though he might have warned before muting. Now i don't know his side of the story fully and people that report tend to shape and bend the whole thing into their favor.

Anyways. Peithne is a Moderator just to let you know. There's a difference haha :P The point is that we take these kind of words seriously. We have pretty much people from any country in the world on this server and do not make exceptions based on what is normal in your country or not. For example: I live in Holland and if i had said something like "Joden knul" (Transalated Jewish kid) . It may not even seem offensive to others and they probaly wont even take it that way. But to alot of ppl it might be offensive.

So please keep in mind that we think of the greater picture. Respect each other's feelings and you'll be just fine

Saying Jew'd Was highly offensive for two Reasons.

1. By using it as a Phrase for being tricked you are labeling all Jews seem bad.
2. Jewish people Do not find that term Funny Nor acceptable, am i Jewish? No, will i stand for such ignorance? No.

I don't find this offensive... Tons of stuff can be slightly offensive to some small percentage of the population. I'm glad mods are being active, but like the concerns listed before by Debi, I think this might be going too far.

Not recommended to use this term in front of a member of the religion, as they may be quite offended.

i personally would consider using it as ractist depending on the context, but each country takes things differently.

Oh and, i do live in America and i Dont see people walking down the street going, "hey I was playing poker last night with Paul and he jew'd me out of my money." If you always walk around saying it then maybe you need to reconsider Whats racist.

haha wow, I've never said it; didn't know it existed until now (I'm not very urban/slang). :D I meant to put both quotes at the top and respond to them together. Jew'd I could see as racist and offensive to some, I meant "Joden knul" (Jewish kid) wasn't offensive IMO anyway.

i think a warning wouldve done the job,
and if the word was to be repeated again, or any other wrong word used, a mute will be great
u can then say the guy got his warning!
but no warning at all is a bit harsh!

For this type of "act" there shouldnt be a warning.
Racism is one of the worst forms of insulting someone.

Exactly what i ment Kraith ;P I more or less tried to explain that cultural differences might play a part in here :P For any non dutch player :P "Joden knul" Might not even seem offensive at all. Because they do not know what it means ;) Anyways that's it :P

"You just got jew'd out man" or "What a jew". It simply means that you are a tightass (the stereotypical view of a Jew). Friends use it at times, i think i have even referred to someone as Jew implying they are a tight ass. Anyway, using this word all depends on the context.

But, i'm going to say this for the 50th time. Mutes are so shaky now. They seem to just slam down on anything..

@Roel the rules listed definitely do not help this situation and i honestly suggest you take into consideration what i have suggested twice now and add in racism there too.
