TL;DR:

I was attacked by a troll.
I didn't respond.
I got banned for being a racist.
Pleaded for help.
Got none.
Community sucks.

The end.

How Bizarre. Usually the rule is the reverse: posts not in the forum's primary language are banned.

Heh, well steam forums allow mixed languages. Some are nothing but russian character spew and I cannot find an english topic. Or some are all korean, etc.

Maybe I was TOO harsh for their baby-faced millennial moderators?

I mean... I said if the game didn't support more languages, then there would be less foreign language topics "spew".

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ... hmm, seems OUR forum cannot display foreign characters correctly... (didn't someone bring that up already?)

Over sensitive dick fraks out there these days I guess lol ... ;)

Yup. Looking into the ADMIN area, it seems the board is set to ISO. Then hesitating changing that setting to UTF-8, I looked at the database. Its all set to ISO as well. So If I changed it in admin, it would surely begin to go rogue. So I need to convert the database. But then I realized it seems a lot of data in the ISO database is actually already multibyte, so its UTF-8 stored in ISO collation.

ARG. No wonder I never converted this ten years ago. LOL!

I'd need to upgrade IMG Forums to IPB 4.0+ as it has a built in handler for this specific case. I will ponder it. However getting it is not a clean cut process, as we need to re-license it and move from 'free' model to 'paid'. Politics.

Whats odd... is I see member names filled with utf-8+ only characters... so, something certainly is going FAWNKY. I think what happens is 'content' is being back converted to ISO, but it doesnt convert user names.

Go figure.... some of that is converted, some isn't. Wow, I hate using other people's code.

Hey watch it Frigidman!  I'M a millennial and I resent that.  Oh... wait, you mean THIS millennia.  Never mind.  

You see, you simply stepped on a snowflake's safe space and left a big muddy footprint from your jackboot of over-the-top racism, violent words, hatred, and INTOLERANCE!!!  Hopefully they will be able to find you and drag you naked through the streets behind an electric car while a screaming mob gathers the rest of your family to stone you all to death for your intolerance to others.

Physical work over tweeting and posting facebook posts? That doesn't sound like them ... zero action, all text.

In light of these recent events, I recommend that we make a pre-emptive strike against Frigidman and limit him to 1 post per day that he must translate into English (US), English (UK), French, Italian, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Pig Latin, and Dwarf. If you care about the safety of your pets and children, then I'm sure you agree that this is appropriate.

Turns out, looking over the thread they banned me on for 'being racist' ... reading the other comments, I see what happened.

Some troll came out of the wood work, calling me a racist. Then other people jumped in saying I wasn't being racist at all. Then the troll attacked everyone's post who disagreed. Then apparently reported us ALL, and you guessed it. The result was that we ALL got banned for 'racism', and the troll who started the war, and was slinging the most popsnizzle around... is left alone and all his posts remain!

How is that for fairness and doing the right thing  /totalsarcasm

What a load of horse popsnizzle. I wrote a scathing email to the company contact email. Doubt it will do anything because the company clearly sides with trolls.

The term has completely lost its meaning - these days the definition is "I don't like your opinion but can't/won't offer any logical argument"

We can only hope one of the up coming generations throw political correctness out and stop trying to appease everyone and making folks live in constant fear of causing offence.

Maybe then we can go back to making progress in society by allowing debate over different points of view on any topic.
