So, open chat is now being censored because of a political cartoon?? Its my understanding that as long as it is in somewhat good taste; which can go to one degree or another then its okay ???? I realize that yes, politics is one of the forbidden subjects that is in our bylaws as well as sex, religion and goodness forbid .......politics. If a picture of The Comb over in chief were posted in the same manner, I for one would find it absolutely hilaruous; after all, ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE CORRUPT and need to be satirized and made fun of. If so many people have gotten their feathers ruffled over that caricature, then Open Chat needs to come to a screeching halt, shut down and the offender sumarily executed.

Nothing was censored by anyone, historically we have avoided politics because its a hot button issue which causes fights. I wasn't aware that we were were allowing it on the open channel, I wasn't present when it was created. I apologized to David for telling him not to discuss politics, I didnt censor or remove anything. Delta your reaction actually kind of demonstrates my point. Nothing was censored but your already freaking out. Im going to avoid the open channel altogether if this is what is going to become.
This is how I see it. Discord is not the game, its actualy real life. What may or not be appropriate discussion changes, its situational. I see the open chat as "normal" chat and members are expected to filter themselves and be considerate of others. What may fly at 2am may not at 7pm. We all should know the difference. The general chat is "special" and is very much censored and should only be used for game related material. Members do not need to hear or see anything they find offensive, simply switch channels. Thank you
Sarcastic or not I was publicly accused of censoring people here and on discord and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I take responsibility for my words, good or bad. I dont like taking a rap for what I didnt do.
Dan, relax, I do not think anyone was saying you were censoring anyone. You admitted that you were not aware that the Open channel was for anything under the sun, because some people were getting upset about the language and T&A being posted in general chat, the Open channel fixed that. Nobody thinks bad of you, I like you, you are a good player and you are nice to people, so again relax good sir and have fun. :)
Thanks United, the only who said anything about not discussing politics was me so by default comments about censorship can only refer to.. me. If this was a joke how is anyone to know If I hadn't explained what happened? I thought I was doing my job as an officer, should have just kept my mouth shut. Live and learn.
just going through the post. As for politics, religion, sexually explicit post that is on me. Over the years i have belonged to many groups and organizations and it is my experience that the above topics often cause more harm then good. We have changed general chat to Game chat in the hope people will post game (any game) material. That said, keep in mind these are private channels and are here to serve the greater good of the GNZ family. As officers of GNZ sometimes there will be hard issue to tackle and because the officers are commissioned on merit we trust any action taken will reflect GNZ in the best light. As with any shit storm document and collect witnesses when ever possible. thank you for your dedication and vigilance.
