[MOD] Tonight's Events (Use of Slurs)
1stJun 5, 2021
- Hi Tengaged!
The moderation team has discussed the events that have occurred on the blogs page tonight and have decided how to proceed. For those who may be unaware, blogs were being posted with the word "paki" which caused a discussion on whether the word constitutes a racial slur. My understanding was there was division on the offensive nature of the word, but our stance going forward will be to remove blogs that have the word while we develop a more refined position. In terms of whether it will be banned in the future, consultation will occur with the Tengaged Advisory Council and members of the community who would be targeted by the word to discuss how to proceed. Bans would not be handed out retroactively. We will provide further updates if necessary.
As always, if you have concerns, feel free to reach out to myself, koolness234 or CheapCheep.
