Team Speak Profanity

Recommended Posts

Not being a prude here , but its kind of difficult being on a TeamSpeak channel when every 3rd word is F$%^! (F Bomb). I get its an adult server, but ya really don't make much of a point if your constantly cussing. There are other people on the channel ya know. I don't mind the occasional, but when someone can not speak English without saying F%$# every 3rd word, its not only distracting and uncalled for, its very annoying! High school is over, you don't need to prove how mature you are with endless cussing. Come on guys,,, Id like to fly with you all in the same TS channel,,,,

Fakum,, and that's as in, Fake Um

Thanks for allowing my little rant,,, have a great day!

No, you are absolutely right, and I have spoken the two involved pilots immediately after I saw your msg.

Before we had a ZERO swearing rule (it still exists in the chat in server), but as the pilots got younger, or the younger guys got older, I think it wouldnt reflect our time or would be a bit harsh nowadays to ban a word like "fuck", since it is quite normal in the every day language.

 

However, that being said, THAT IS NOT A GREEN CARD for immature behaviour. It is so different if I say after a hard fight: "fuck me, that was a great fight" or if I wield the negative cudgel of "f@ck this f@ck that f@ck everything f@ck here f@ck there" - that is just a WTF.

Permanent cursing and espacially disturbing other pilots is a NO GO! It should be etiquette that forbids you to do that. And as much as I like to curse when shite hits the fan, I simply dont push the teamspeak button. such an easy thing to do!

In future, please keep reporting incidents like that to us, we will deal with folks who behave like that swiftly.

 

EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO FLY IN A RESPECTFUL ENVIRONMENT!

 

Thank you, S!

I thank you sir for addressing this as I'm reasonably confident that most people feel the same, but are reluctant to say so in fear of ridicule. Like yourself, I can cuss up a storm myself, I actually do so often, but there is a time and place where it is deemed appropriate/acceptable, TeamSpeak in my opinion is not one of them unless the channel is dedicated for just that. In my opinion, people need to realize that they are not the only people on that channel, and it is inappropriate too assume that it is acceptable to all. many thanks again for your attention to this matter. I enjoy hoping into your server and hopping in a channel where the focus is working with others to have fun and take care of business :}, thank you for the opportunity to express myself as well.

Couldn't have said that any better, mate! Whenever you feel it is getting out of hand, please contact us, and pls forgive if we don't see your msg right away.

Also, pls be aware of the brevity only channels, where swearing and anything apart from brevity is forbidden. Since not everybody is fluent in brevity, I am thinking of reinstalling zero swearing channels, although on the other hand, I much rather want ppl to behave than to create refuge channels for ppl who do behave. that's not how it should be. Respect comes first, the liberty to cuss comes last. And we will focus on that more again, the same goes for etiquette on the server, I cannot believe how some ppl behave around airports, in chat, etc. And I'm not really old school either, but a minimum of gentlemanship hasn't hurt anyone.

S!

Thank you. I had considered the Brevity channel, but was reluctant as I am not fluent at all. Perhaps I will hang out in there and listen while flying? My problem is I'm a long time Hog Pilot that is fiddling about with the F-15 trying to learn. A good team speak channel can teach you a lot in short time. Thanks again sir.

see on the right side in the channel, download the brevity codes. and don't mind doing mistakes. it is not about perfect brevity, it is about communicating about your flight and the relevant info, rather than sunday chatting on and on ;-)

I tried to send you one, but I couldnt for some reason, then I tried admin, but that was as admin permissions message. I didnt want to call you out on TS, I expect at this point you have read the TS rules. Thanks for the response,,,,,

I actually did double click, I have done this in the past with no issue, for some reason, last night was an issue? Who by the way is talking about people we don't like on TS? That is not the topic, its the cussing that violates the TS rules we are discussing here. It seems you were not aware of this policy, I hold no grudge, I simply ask that you and every one else do their best to follow the rules and at the very least, understand there are many others on TS with you, some have family members etc surrounding them, I suspect you get the picture. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with who anybody likes. I look forward to flying with you again,, I appreciate your understanding.

Olde, sorry that you feel offended enough that you have to harass me on TS. I don't work that level, I grew up along time ago.

Was this message really necessary? It has no impact other than to make communication on TS more difficult.

"OldE": hey welome to my Blocked list FOR REFRENCE please fell free to Right click my name and go to BLOCK USER.....works like a charm

i didnt harass you, i simply sent you a message to fix your issue. i'm sorry you feel this way there are people who i dont like me and they just mute me so i was simply giving you that option and marking you as a blocked user will keep me from joining your channel and offending you.

 

Thanks,

Olde

Olde, Its not my intent to create issues here, like most people, Im trying to enjoy a good flight with good people, and more importantly, enjoy myself. Its up to the Admins if they want to enforce their policy, not me. Your response to me was clearly a jab. I have to assume you have not read through this post, if you had done so, I would have expected we would not be in this unfortunate position. Muting people on TS creates issues, how? Well,,, when you have a gentleman on there calling out vectors for you and others, it is presumed considerate to wait until one person is finished speaking before you step in and make a call, otherwise, people are talking over each other and TS becomes virtually useless. If you block me and say 2 others, how do you know your not talking over them and creating issues? You dont, you just wind up stepping on them and creating com issues, what is the benefit of that? And I dare to ask, if your an adult (which at the moment I assume you are) what would stop you from respecting the fact that there are others on TS that dont want to have to constantly hear F this F that? I respectfully ask you, what restrains you from not being able to be considerate?

Like I said in the initial post, I can swear with the best of them, but when your on TS, I know there are others like me that have other people loitering about in the back ground, and I do as well often, so I respect that and refrain from it. Its purely out of respect. I also realize some people dont care, I ran into another person on TS like that last night, I politely asked him to try and cut back and the young know it all who boasts he runs his own server claimed it does not bother him,,, just another one that missed the point. I see that in our youth today, they have no discipline, therefore, they dont even understand what the word respect means. Ya cant fight city hall, it is the way of the world. Choose your path as you see fit. Im not here to save the planet, if you cant find it within yourself to be respectful to others, Im in the wrong place. I will be moving on. At the very least, thank you for reading through this post.
