Hi all,

What is the tolerance on rascist and sexist people in this community?

Sadly it is infeasible to moderate the ingame chat. I'd try to stick to servers which only allow logged-in users and kick people who misbehave.

This guy is mostly likely lying I played Commander.Σ/Commander.B a lot and he never was racist or sexist he was always polite and respectful.

It is close to impossible for the ORA developers to manage and administrate issues such as these. So whether this is true or not is inconsequential.

ORA is engine and official mods (RA,TD, D2K etc) use a dedicated server system in order to host games. The developers can't manage other people's servers, the onus is on server operators to deal with these issues in the way they see fit.

Thats not really correct - we went out of our way to implement a solution in the form of the registered servers, which display player's forum username to prevent fakes and have some level of accountability. Anyone who thinks this is important should be playing only on these servers.

The thing is that most players don't want that level of accountability, and so actively avoid those servers. If we were to start forcing people to play on the registered servers then I expect that many people would instead stop playing OpenRA completely.

IDEA: How about a implementing a chat_line parser / scanner on every OpenRa server?
Here's how it can be done:
1. Player logs into OpenRA_server and their ip_adress gets logged.
2. Player joins a game and enter an ingame chat_line, then presses <enter>
>>
3. OpenRA Client send entered chatline to OpenRa BackEnd_server.
4. OpenRA BackEnd server daemon/script parses incoming chat_line on blacklisted words.
4. If blacklisted words are found:
- Server logs violating player ip_address + message (as proof)
- Server notifies misbehaving player_name + ip_adress to + message to:
-- localserver admin
-- centralized community server
>>
5. Local admin / Community admin manage validate violation alert, grants ip_address ban.
6. Violators ip_address get added to a permanent ban list of all running public OpenRA servers.
This implementation should clean up the community rapidly and permanently

Who cares if some idiot on the other side of the world says some mean things? They're probably 12 years old and all they're doing is revealing themselves as a poopoohead.

Johnnyboy has been temp banning bad actors from his games all the time and if you ask me his efforts has cleaned up the community by quite a bit, OP is probably some loser that misbehaved and is now playing the victim.
