    The world is such a joke these days.

    Just offend everyone equally and let them deal with it.

    @lucidus - Money, I guess. :fuse:

    I'm trying to figure out their angle on this one. I mean, do they see this as a sign of being disrespectful? or a sign of terrorism?

    I mean, it's their hangup on what they think of this. But is it really a problem?


    @Finchwizard - censorship is just loony these days. It almost feels like we're going backwards if you know what I mean.

    I get the feeling that the people who actively look for these sorts of "violations" of political correctness think they're doing their people a favor when nobody actually cares.

    It seems that some game companies are getting a little worried about offending muslims and having them act out over the game.

    Changing things because of muslims getting offended offends me, nobuy ¬¬.


    Nothing wrong with muslims, but i don't want a world where you can't do/say something because it "may offend muslims", since they get offended by anything and those things are very retarded, something like getting back to medieval times, people can't evolve because everything they do its considered evil, bleh.

    I think it's somewhat odd that, if in normal conversation, I accidently offended a gay person, for example, then apologized and recanted, I would be seen as a good guy; it would be a decent act.

    But if in a game, Muslims are offended, a similar response from the game developer occurs, and then everyone gets word of it...Suddenly there's outcry.

    I feel there's a double standard here. While Muslims to tend to be easier to offend, in this case, it's a small outcry over a small thing. The thing is in noway integral to the locale or situation, plot or meaning. It's just a tiny decoration. Why not simply remove it, and everyone just remains happy.

    Islam should just vanish, or at the very least shut up.

    Islam means "submit" and everybody seems to be certainly doing that as soon as it's even mentioned. "Don't want to offend muslims" rofl, they go out of their way to BE offended, some of them are permanently offended. :puke2:

    well you dick brain i am really offended for what you just said, Christians, Jews and Muslims are all believing in the same God and prophets its just some of the people like to cause trouble.

    And if game developers know this would cause trouble among muslims than why do it. its our religion our culture go **** with your culture or ur **** starting war country.

    Well that's not proving the point right there. I made a decent post on Islam's side and you completely ignore it for a chance to insult someone else.

    i take offense to you taking offense! why so angry?
    hey i know you should read up on some history. You can start here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_and_war
    merkia hasn't started nearly as many wars. We mostly just intervene and push the war in our favor. Of course i can see why that would make most people angry.

    So am I, lol. But fwiw, I'll just chip in my bit.

    Muslims are too varied, crossing over into different races, cultures, habits, practices and most especially the degree of emphasis on religion in their lives to be typecast under a such a generic term as "the Muslims". Often sensational events or news stories due to their nature are usually what make 'news' and thus get at the forefront of peoples attention. Unfortunately this creates certain associations in some peoples minds where the acts of a few are automatically seen as representative of the whole. I work in the middle-east and most muslims I know couldnt give a rats arse about things like this. If they did, then they'd be up in arms over the bars, nightclubs and brothels in some of the countries here (Bahrain, UAE), but as they couldnt care less (or not enough to do anything about), I guess its what allows these places to thrive and endure. So to generalize or paint in broad brush strokes any groups of people as "the Muslims" or 'the Jews' or 'the blacks' is pretty close to what we may see at Stormfront imo. Sad state of the times.
