Hooray, more censorship idiocy

Post by Xenon » Tue Apr 19, 2011 9:36 pm

This time it's Mafia:
Offense: Inappropriate Map
A map published under this account was found to have contained:

Playable roles named "Hooker" and "Stripper"
......
......
......

The map has a firing squad and an electrocution and this is an unforgivable offense?! :Y

So the dancing night elf model they animated is okay? But calling her a stripper is not?

It was pointed out that the model's internal name is indeed Holo_Stripper. Who knows what other horrifying words lurk in the depths of the editor!

Kinda like the baneling's original weapon name was "Suicide" when the auto-censor existed in the beta, which caused the auto-censor to ban the map. They changed the Baneling attack name, but the Scourge weapon in the campaign data is still "Suicide".

I bet they'd want to replace guns with water pistols next!
Honestly, this is the One Piece/4Kids fiasco all over again.

Aren't both One Piece and Starcraft 2 rated T without much censorship? (implied or labeled)


Seriously, if this is censorship for containing the words "Stripper" and "Hooker" then I don't know what would result over two games called "Stripper" and "Hooker" respectfully. Probably similar except rated appropriately.
