Will new "offensive" words get us banned and when?

    I've seen a handful of players showing their emails about how they got banned for mildly offensive use of profanity and language. My question are as follows,

    -Do new offensive words run the risk of getting a player banned?

    -Do made up words not yet generally in use run the risk of getting a player banned?

    -Is general trash talking a bannable offense?

    -"Trolling" going to be a bannable offense anytime?

    -New words that gain popularity used as insults, WHEN do they enter the list of unacceptable terms to be used?

    this dawned on me when I noticed that the word "cuck", short for Cuckhold, noun, a man whose wife commits adultery, has been in use on the Internet. It's now used as an insult and is relatively new to the vocabulary of most people. Will it too one day, or already is, something that can get a player banned when used in-game or in a harmful and degrading way?

    Do you seriously think trolling is a bannable offense? Lol

    I don't understand, the player turned off the profanity filter and then report others for using offensive words?

    btw the filter is on by default

    You are allowed to harass players, exploit them into exp/gem loss with mobs, take them across the ocean,

    Just don't talk about it.

    That's their motto. "We'll send out your concerns to the devs *doesn't say a word*"

    It's not about the word, it's about the context and how it's used. Something that censor loving united-staters like to ignore. A censor filter doesn't make an insult disappear. The simple fact it's censored makes you know what's being said.

    How do they have time to ban people for saying stuff in chat when "Coral" is still censored out in the NA client as an offensive word yet "****" isnt.

    They are literally too lazy/stupid/incompetent to change this ridiculous detail that has been an issue since day 1. How do they have time to actually ban people for chat content?

    I hope so. The internet slang bandwagon language is nauseating.

    Words only have power when you give them power, if you dont get offended then they are just lines on a screen. So its really simple, dont get offended. :)

    Then turn on filters in chat or create a tab without server/rp...

    Problem solved! You're welcome.

    "Don't read words and interpret any meaning out of them, if you get offended it's your fault."

    (watch, 100% chance someone is offended by my post)

    Because "Pearl up F----t" isn't offensive at all, nope not at all.
    Ooooor <Insert Nword here go fornicate with yourself>

    I would say "Come on people, you can be mature and use better words to describe your dissatisfaction with others, or just... block them." but this is North America, and that's an unrealistic expectation.

    Nope, he said the bandwagon "language," not the people.

    Pure victim blaming.

    If people don't want to be banned for being offensive, people should stop being offensive.

    Be an edgelord in the relative privacy of guild chat or your discord server.

    There'll always be some who report everything so why leave yourself open?

    talk in third person, address people by their names or completely agamous words, Bait them, goad them

    then as soon as they even so much as call you a he/she report them for insulting your non binary identity and get them banned. Its fairly easy
