  1. How can a community become ONE community, if there are these kind of people, who think that it's not allowed to make jokes about them? Go offend a hetero person, he either laughs or offends you back, go offend a gay person, he either laughs or offends you back. Sexuality or skin colour or w/e else shouldn't be an excuse not to joke about them, because otherwise the community will never evolve. That's my opinion Did you actually just write that? I don't post very often, but this has pissed me off. I genuinely cannot believe that someone has just suggested that a community "evolves" by making discriminatory jokes more socially acceptable. Every time you make a joke about someone's race, sex or sexual orientation you are reinforcing negative stereotypes. I can't believe noone has challenged this guy. http://news.bbc.co.u...all/9373280.stm Oh yeah he was just joking, so it's fine. It's fine to claim that women don't understand the offside rule, because they're women. I mean really, HOW can our community become one community when there are people that find that sort of stuff offensive? [/sarcasm] Attitudes like yours are the reason that there is real inequality between the sexes. You may claim that it's "just a joke", but if you keep making jokes about certain groups of people being inferior, you might start actually believing it. "One should be man enough to ignore it, lol". Wow. "They're just words." Seriously? Have you ever been verbally/emotionally bullied in your life? Never been the butt of a joke that everyone else laughed at but you were slightly upset by? If you haven't you've been pretty lucky your whole life. I'd like to think society is past the days where people thought words couldn't hurt someone. Go and google "cyberbullying suicide", come back and say "they're just words." I realise that was completely off topic and outside the sphere of Runescape, but don't go around saying people should man up and that "they're just words". That's an exceedingly ignorant thing to say. OT: I see merits to both sides of the argument. While private chat is obviously private, it should be noted that if you private is on, random people can message you something hurtful and/or offensive. Obviously you can turn private to friends only, but it seems a tad ridiculous that people are complaining about not being able to make racist/sexist/homophobic comments to each other over private message. Take a step back and challenge yourself to think of insults that aren't derogatory to a specific group of people. I would go off on a huge rant but I'm not the best with words (maths degree) and I'm kind of tired. I'm sure people will come and tear my argument to shreds/pick out little parts of it and tear them to shreds. Hopefully people can at least agree that discriminatory jokes actually aren't ok, and we shouldn't just "ignore" it, and that words aren't really "just words". EDIT: I suppose in a way I've assumed that the chat filter does only block the things I've mentioned, and isn't malfunctioning. Just realised that's probably wishful thinking given this is jagex!

  2. You'll be happy to know that this won't be the case as of next week. I certainly hope so.
  3. Happy birthday! :D

  4. An automatic charm collector from dungeoneering. Best Update Month Ever.
  5. Draw distance is the distance you can see in the game client. This image shows it off pretty nicely, so with a much higher draw distance we can see wayyyy out into the distance instead of seeing a barrier of fog :P Skyrimscape. Please show me anywhere in Skyrim that looks like that. Legion camps outside of Whiterun
  6. I'd just like to see stats make a bigger difference. I'm happy with the momentum toggle.
  7. The Dragonkin predate Guthix, right? Maybe they went into rage-mode when Guthix used the Stone but couldn't do anything about it because he was too powerful. MAYBE Sliske made a pact with them; kill Guthix for us and you can have the Staff.
  8. So I think Sliske's gonna use himself as a host for Zaros's "spirit" so he can return now that the edicts are broken.
  9. Used the frostenhorn on the Stone of Jas. I became a god.
  10. http://[LikelyScam; use original link]/i/1DXOo/original found a thing. Mini-edict sword? I hope it's not just a cosmetic override.
  11. Oh god these EoC updates are gonna be awesome. Can't wait!
  12. This is pretty funny, but they should have made a newspost or something.
