Here's a suggestion. Why doesn't CubeCraftGames stop being racist?

    Hey! So, the title is a serious claim, so I'd like to back it up with some hard evidence.

    Hop onto the HUB, right now, and type "jew". See what happens.

    Now, type any other religion in the history of the world, including "muslim", "christian", "buddhist", etc. See what happens.

    Are you kidding me CubeCraft? What the hell were you thinking?

    Here's what I suggest we do:

    Either, unblacklist the word 'jew', and add a system where some meaningless blacklisted words, including this one, can be blacklisted if they have stereotypical insult words such as 'filthy', or 'kill', etc.

    Or, block all religion names.

    Some people can't join the server rn (like me), so it's always handy to clarify your message or add screenshots. I guess it has something to do with the chat censor.

    What exactly happens when you type these? Can you elaborate a bit more on the suggestion?

    Just tried this, and I see what you mean.
    But I know for a fact that Cubecraft didn't do this on purpose.
    So your title is in my opinion slightly 'too much' for a simple report on something you have noticed.

    Anyways, thank you for the report and I hope that cubecraft will fix this for people that get offended by this.

    It was a bit too harsh, yeah. But it's offensive to my culture, and I would like this handled.

    The thing is, it's nothing to do with the "racism" mentioned - people use the word "Jew" in such negative connotations that the staff felt like it was needed to censor. Anything that can trigger any fascism around the server is, I am sure, strictly prohibited.

    That being said, people use muslim in a negative connotation as well, perhaps even more. Why aren't they blocked?

    I have no idea in all honesty. However, anything that can target a race can be seen as racism - such as if I were to call someone of Muslim descent a "terrorist", it would be seen as racism. However, in other contexts, it can be seen as a perfectly reasonable word to use: "I was playing CS:Go and I was in terrorists..." ECT ECT.

    The reason for the censorship is because of 90% of the sentences containing the word "Jew" is probably offensive and related to war.

    Well, what if you want to use the word muslim in a regular conversation?

    People nowadays already get triggered if you don't agree with their opion

    IA gree the world needs to be unblocked. I mean seriously, I don't even see why we have a chat filter as every word can be bypassed and it blocks other commonly used words such as "Jewel" or "Put A Roof"

    Put A roof can easily be replaced by place a roof... Or build a roof...
    They shouldn't remove the filter of that word...
    And for Jewel... Well Jwel? J3wel... Idk

    Well played bro, well played.
    IMHO I can't decide how I exaclty see it
    In a way it's discriminating
    In a way Jew is really used as an offense
    I mean if "Italian" was used in offensive contexts I'd still want to be able to type it in the chat.
    But at the same time people would offend other people using that word
    It's complicated
    But in my opinion the block should be removed, and the word allowed.

    I mean sometimes the anti-swear filter does some dumb things
    And I think "Hacks" was removed from the filter (thank god, or Allah however you want to call it)
    I am not asking to remove the antiswear all together, but just rework it because it needs a lot of improvement. People bypass it in several ways while it blocks people who want to have a normal conversation.

    Well what's the problem with it?
    You can't block 'Jew' just because it's used as a swear word most times.
