    I was asked today about my religion by my friend @xcupcakelovelyx and tried to respond by telling her. On reply I was told that the word Jew is a swear word. I don't understand why it is a banned when other religions are able to be posted in chat. Was not happy that the chat is anti Jew :(

    Fellow Jews : @s__a__r__a__h @HawaiiAkela

    There's nothing wrong with the word Jew. I'm a half-Jew, so that makes me Jew-ish *ba dum khish*

    No but seriously, this is moronic. Fix this please, @halothe23 or @rubik_cube_man

    Cutting off the -ish on groups is common. Finnish=Finns, British=Brits, Swedish=Swedes, etc. I guess you could call Jews Hebrews, but that's really not 100% correct. It's easier to say "Jew" than it is to say "person who practices Judaism."

    Ok, I'm done complaining on the internet for the night. If we could just get this locked/looked at by the owners, that'd be great.

    I believe this is something to do with with people offending people... People may be Jewish, and don't like this word blocked, but some people might say, "I kiel awl Jews" then people are going to be offended. I believe we've had these incidents before, and therefore for all the Jewish people out there it's sort of a helpful way to stop people from using racism.

    By that logic, every racial, sexual, political, religious and secular group name should be blocked because someone somewhere might say something nasty about them.
    (I lied in my last post.)

    No, because Jews have a strong relation to a higher offense dating back to the 1930s-1940s

    The thing about this is that the staff can't just sit in a game all day watching for people to say bad things about Jews.

    Honestly, even though Judaism has had it's horrible moments, @Tacosbefriends is right by saying that all the religious, sexual, racial, political, and secular group name should be banned. The Jewish players that are here should be allowed to express their religion, but with this word banned, they cannot say what they are. Christians, Muslims, etc. can all express their religion to the fullest, whereas Jews cannot. @SevereWarning, yes there were issues of a high degree in the 1930's and 40's known as the Holocaust, as of where I can see how this word could be banned because of taunts pertaining to that incident, and yet, the word Muslim can be said, and there was the 9/11 terrorist attack, Al Queda, and the Taliban (a group of Muslim extremists who took over Afghanistan), all come from Muslim descent, and yet, they can still express their religion.
