Is this supposed to be acceptable? Seriously, why such blatant apathy? Do you have any stake in humanity at all?
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   668d ago
It's not acceptable but it's something that will always happen, even if countermeasures are put in place, and therefore it should just be ignored or the people's accounts reported.

It's pathetic to get worked up over it though.

I think it's depressing and counter productive when people take the stance you just laid out. Just ignore it and move on. Where does that leave us? I fully accept that there are assholes everywhere, but saying it's pathetic to get worked up over it, telling people to ignore it.. There is so much history and so much spilled blood you are disrespecting by saying this.

I'm not meaning to cause any offence to people who feel strongly about this, and as I also said you can report it.

I only say ignore it because I feel it's not worth working yourself up over someone else's racist behaviour. I find myself doing that when I see blatantly racist comments that are very popular when I read stuff on my country's Yahoo. All it leads to is me feeling angry and it's not something that will change, so I ignore it.

With level-heads and low blood pressures that's where. You can't change human nature. There will ALWAYS be people like this.

Instead of constantly getting worked up over them and calling attention to them, just ignore them. Don't give their bullsh*t the time of day. Turn your back to them and shun them. Let the issue die a silent, sad death.

This isn't something that people should be passive about nor tolerate. It's ignorance and while cases will happen, example can and need to be made. When playing online you agree to certain terms of service agreements. To say it's "pathetic" to get worked by a symbol that has millions of deaths tied to it, is outrageous. Telling people to simply look the other way, historically, has proven to always ended badly.

I agree with you and I'm really not getting my point across well. I'm not meaning to insinuate that ignorance is the correct stance to take against racism and general bigotry.

If people spot something of that nature in their daily lives I would fully expect them to intervene; I have in the past in order to teach my niece that racism isn't acceptable. My stance is more towards seeing it on the internet.

On the internet there is no example that could be made of someone that could be made of someone that would deter others from doing stuff like creating nazi emblems. The internet is a lost cause and in that respect I believe that a degree of ignorance should be employed. No matter how many people get banned from a game for these types of things it won't stop the problem or even slow it down.

As to my use of pathetic, that probably wasn't the best way to say what I meant but I can't really understand taking offence to something (especially on the internet). I understand fully the difference between right and wrong and I will voice my opinion on something I feel is wrong but I can't say that I've ever really taken offence to something.

Going over this in my head as I write it I do realise that I may come off somewhat as a bit of a s**t.

No, but it shouldn't be removed either. Allow the racists to blatantly express it so everyone knows. Why? Because the vast majority of people will do exactly in the video game that should happen in real life: beat the living hell out of them and make it clear that their idiotic views will do nothing but make everyone hate them.

So what would you like to do about it? I know, lets remove his right to use symbols we dont agree with. But wait, there are others that I dont like and some that you dont like so we have to remove those as well... oh but, there are so many gamers playing this game and to respect their opinions we will have to remove the ones that offend them as well.

Where does this leave us? NO User Generated Content. Thats where it leaves us. Everything offends someone. You getting offended at someones freedom to offend you, offends me.

It's amazing in a very sad way to see such apathetic and callus comments to my stand against the swastika.

Most of you really don't care for anyone other than yourselves which is so sad as we are all connected, all part of humanity and at the end of the day what we do affects all of us in someway.

Many of you are so sad in fact that you actually defend your apathy with "It's pathetic to get worked up over it" or "Just ignore it"....are you really serious? Are you all completely blind to the fact that its the exact type of apathy that you display that allowed this evil to exist in the first place?!!

Others of you spout off at the mouth with something like "it's freedom of expression" or "it's my right"... when most of you have no idea how your rights were won and defended in the first place.

The lot of you come off as a bunch of spoiled little children whose sense of self entitlement almost outweighs your ignorance. Your "freedoms" and "rights" are a privilege and gift, not an excuse for you to display a symbol that's synonymous with the death of about 6 Million people, and we're not even talking about a tragedy that happened hundreds of years ago, but only 60.

With these rights, freedoms, these gifts... why not use it for good? Why not use it to take a stand against evil on every level? It's obvious that some of you feel a huge sense of futility to the whole thing like who cares really? What power do I have to change anything or make a difference? Change starts small and it starts in your immediate area of influence.

We have a voice, we could show our discontent that developers would allow swastikas to even be a possible to create in their emblem maker and force them to change it.

Be a compassionate human being first and a gamer second. Lets make the world a better place, everything counts.

The symbol known as a Swastika. Actually has existed for thousands of years. Swastikas have also been used in various other ancient civilizations around the world including Turkic, India, Iran, Nepal, China, Japan, Korea and Europe.

Sounds like white guilt. From a black man to a White man... Chill out. It's not that bad.

If this gets out of hand, DICE will probably have all emblems go through an approval process or allow people to report bad emblems.

They should just get rid of them. It doesn't fit with the Battlefield games imo.

Am I the only one who sees the irony of beta males getting emotional over the sight of a swastika in a game where the main objective is to shoot, bash, or slit the throat of other players?
Patrick  +   667d ago
Nope, its quite ridiculous for people to want to have the freedom to do what ever they want, but then remove the same freedom from someone else. Once you begin removing freedoms you will find your own freedoms being removed at the same time, because someone will disagree with you.

Nazis aren't racist.

"For years before Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany, he was obsessed with ideas about race. In his speeches and writings, Hitler spread his beliefs in racial "purity" and in the superiority of the "Germanic race"—what he called an Aryan "master race." He pronounced that his race must remain pure in order to one day take over the world. For Hitler, the ideal "Aryan" was blond, blue-eyed, and tall."

Self-hatred at it's finest. Hitler had black hair was of average height.

Hitler had the gift of gab and knew the power of spectacle. Not everyone agrees in his ideas but he was a dreamer nonetheless.
Consoldtobots  +   667d ago
anyone that thinks the nazi movement was about race has been spoonfed history.

and yes that includes all the losers who shave their heads and wear flight jackets.

Never underestimate the immaturity, insensitivity and stupidity of a Battlefield/COD player

Get over it. If you don't like the symbol then just shoot it down. It's just a game and the pre-teens that put swastikas on their guns have no idea what it really means, they just know they're not supposed to do it.

Anyone who gets offended by a Swastika is a dumbass.

Depends how its used ... In a war game , ok be a bad guy , a target .... Try tatooing one on your face and see where that goes . A symbol is dependant how you use it .... Use it for hate and expect hatred and violence in return ... Ive been to normandy , and I would gladly lay there with the millions of others to stop a sick tyrant like Hitler.

But, battlefield is the opposite of COD, and has a mature fanbase, right gais?
xDHAV0K24x  +   667d ago
Thought the mature gamers are on battlefield lol

THATS IT I AM NOT BUYING BATTLEFEILD 4 ANYMORE.. I CAN NOT SUPPORT THIS TIME OF HATRED.

"NOT" "NOT "NOT" "NOT" "NOT" "NOT" "NOT" "NOT".

Why is this an article????????
ilovefatgirls  +   667d ago
the swastika is hardly a "racist emblem", just some people that happened to associate with it were mass murderers

do you call someone wearing a cross around their neck a pedophile?

food for thought

Oh boo bloody hoo. "That image symbolizes millions of deaths." Really? The whole fracking game is about killing people. I don't hear any complaints about that.
aLucidMind  +   667d ago
You must avoid the mainstream media, such as Faux/Fox News. Plenty of idiots complaining about violent video games right now.
WeAreLegion  +   667d ago
That's the conservative side. The liberal side is just as bad. NBC, CBS, CNN, and ABC.
aLucidMind  +   665d ago
Definitely agree on that, Legion. Both sides are very rotten.
Hufandpuf  +   667d ago
Nazi symbolism is real. The game is not. See the difference?
PurpHerbison  +   667d ago
We need penis emblems.
ghostrider32  +   667d ago
The gaming community was never mature to begin with.
Lykon  +   667d ago
I'd like to see a game with user created content that is not moderated at all. bums tits and willys . swastickers are boring
