    Hello, I've thought if personal attacks are against the rules, why isn't calling someone a noob not against the rules. I mean, it is a personal attack. So, technically it should be against the rules. I mean, look, calling someone a noob only creates bad things. Calling someone a noob could start fights, lead to intense targeting, and really make the other person retaliate. Does cubecraft want that? I'm pretty sure no. I mean, yes, people need to be a little less sensitive but, this really is an acceptation. Calling someone a noob only brings negativity into this fascinating server. I feel like other hurtful words should be against the rules. I mean, it brings negativity into this server. Which, we all don't like. So, let's change some of our community traits for the better! #ImNotFousyTubePls.

    How is being called a "noob" offensive?
    The actual meaning of it is "New, inexperienced person"
    This can't be offensive unless you take it as an insult.
    In that case I think that "you pancake" should be in the filter too.

    Well, if someone says it in a bad way. Example: Someone says "You're just like 1212hawks!" They're saying it in a good way or a bad way. So, people who call people a noob are trying to say it in a bad way. So, I mean, it is just a new person but, they're using it as an insult. Which isn't ok..

    well i mean against the RULES why don't they just have it blurted out like when you try to normally swear

    but the one problem is players will start using stuff like "nub", "n00b", "nooob", ect. so it doesn't really help too much
    but yes i agree with this idea with that 1 change

    Look at it this way: If someone were to call me a potato, should I be offended?
    If yes, then I chose to be offended. the insult itself has no meaning of negativity to it. I chose to be offended by it.
    Now replace "potato" with "noob"

    though that is true it also isn't because it isn't necessarily the case it is all context
    [keeping your example] let's say i had a relative of mine who i admired because they were brave had died in the " Great Irish Famine" that may make me feel sad because i have a loved one who died because of potatoes now this isn't going to sound like it makes much sense but again it is the context is why

    Well, I guess "noob" is blocked for a reason.

    Well, the word noob can be used in a bad way. Well, a potato can't really. I mean, look if you called someone a bad word compared to potato, would that be the same? No. That's the same case with calling someone a noob.
