ach new day it persists is notable!  (what excuse will they use for censorship this time while failing to censor the filth? Spam, blocking, locking, directing to the twit site, quashing, stifling descent?)  I can't continue my previous discussion though; they locked it after allowing a few unanswerable, informal-fallacy-ridden remarks. The filth remains. Who's approving this?

What is the issue?

Four days since I reported offensive (obscene actually) emblems (this current instance) and nothing.  They persist: an obscene symbol and a skinhead promotion.  TreyArch doesn't care.  Four days.

Well, reporting them is one thing expecting them to be banned when reported unreal.

Maybe the developers intend that people deal with that objection by targeting the offensive content generators in the game?  What develops in the minds of those imposing those emblems as they target others (including those who may voice objection) in a game?

Huh

It seems quite scandalous to me.  Evil prevails when good people do nothing.

This thread is scandalous! EviL is not EVil until you start using a TARGetFInder on the LSAT. Sorry it be true.

This does really go beyond the game too. What attitudes toward people of various classes are being blended with violent portrayals.

Have you too have noticed no effect after reporting offensive content? How long have you seen them persist?  If you don't report emblems and are responding here, you are off-topic: start your own discussion!

(I keep offline copies to provide whatever may be censored elsewhere)

Why provide tags if I can't discuss my topic and it's myriad unique intricacies under its own heading.

I'm not as persistent as I should be, as these emblems are.

You speak with a moral tongue, yet play a game of death and destruction of fellow man, that is being a hypocrite. Chill. If killing, blowing someone up is no issue for you, then some child's poor excuse to get his willies of should be brushed aside like stepping on a roach. Be a man, report, and move on with life.

I turn off graphic content.  Why do they provide that option?

I don't kill and destroy fellow men.  I play an otherwise fun fictional action video game of tactics and reflex.  You are employing the informal fallacy of argumentum ad hominem of the circumstantial type.  Try Phil001(Logic) you may avoid some of the many informal fallacies and avoid absurd conclusions and aspersions.  I'm not as practiced as I should be myself.  I play an action video game.  Killing people and blowing people up is wrong to me.  This GAME is not THAT.  This GAME is also not about projecting obscene, bigoted, misogynysitc messages (those projected messages are REAL messages).

Stand for something.  Evil prevails when good people do nothing.  Read my OP again.

"huh"  Yes, i understand that you do not understand.  Maybe you can try apeeal to force or authority next.

For the younger or more sensitive crowd, what other reason?

Very wrong, your post speaks of "morality" you mention how insulted, how degrading it is to view obscenity in the game, which in a way is very true, I do not enjoy what others do via emblems and report those whom I feel should be reported. But you sound or make yourself sound as of someone without sin playing a violent game, its what you otherwise wrote in judging and condoning what others do publicly.

You play a WAR game, its logic is to inflict make believe damage upon men, if that idea if the notion that you are simulating the action that otherwise more "moral" men wouldn't commit to then, chill. I need no lesson in morals, or instructions from someone judgmental as you are. Thank you.

From someone who uses some logic because you write like you care, why the hell would you explain yourself to this forum? Did you want the perfect answer, are those (including) myself who respond to your thread not addressing how we all feel?

Brushing each persons posts because it does not "fit" your expectation is both moronic and tasteless.

I'll quote someone very simple "respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners"

If it were, I would select the Helpful Answer link.

"for the younger...sensitive"  Thanks.  Then remove the user generated filth too.  What's your objection.

You're the pot that calls the silverware black, Mr Manners.

I don't confuse forceful declarations with facts either.

For the guy who thinks everyone is trying to put his topic off topic you are really not helping. His post was in all area's correct as that is what he see's and is his opinion. Here is a news flash. You are NEVER going to find someone who agrees with you 100% on everything. Take some feed back even if you don't like it and move on. There are bigger problems with this game and with other things, than what you are pointing out.

The easy answers to all of this are:

1) don't look at it

2) report and move on (because everyone,but you understands nothing will happen)

3) don't play a game that is based around violence if you can't take some immature images.

Yes this game is rated M for mature, but just as you can tell some people are not old enough to play this game, by their age, some are also not mature enough to play it as shown in some images. This is the world we live in and the sooner you accept that the better you will be. Don't care what other people do on a game.

Repetitive (nothing new), dismissive.  At the risk of repetition (see OP) using a fictional video game with violent content doesn't grant license to messages that are provocative, obscene, hateful, etc.  They  say they remove them, but I see no evidence.  This affects society beyond those who play the game.  It infringes on those who don't want.  I'm not the only one.

Are you just trying to help dissuade others from answering my Qs posed in OP?  You're not here to answer the questions, so what's your agenda?   Do you really mind that someone wants this addressed?

You do know that that math for the images you are talking about are most likely for every one you see there are like 100 for it... they have banned people from using the emblem editor as I know one that has been banned from it. Just because you don;t see it does not mean anything. And with you spamming the same thread for four days what ever support you had and credibility you once had is not gone.

Move on if you don't like something fix it your self and there is a easy way to do so.

I'm not arguing anything based on what I don't see.  I see persistent emblems that obviously many find offensive (I hope this word's significance isn't becoming diminished, it's serious).  The spam is from the likes of you.  It's the same objection repeated.  People exclude or ignore some points in the OP when making their counterpoints so I have to readdress them.  That's not my fault.  Their repetitive dismissiveness (Activision you need to fix your spell checker) is not my fault.  They should move on themselves.  

Anyone want to comment on their observed prevalence and persistence of obscene, bigoted, hateful, misogynistic messages?   That's the standing question in this discussion.  Many seem to be trying to bury it with spam, piling on repetitively

I thank you for helping me make my point, Hawk.  Because you and some others demonstrate an irritation with even a benign (though important) message that persists, you must be able to imagine the effect persistent obscene, degrading, hateful messages have on many.  Are you that oddly (to me) selective in your annoyance? Are you really supportive of the filth and just helping to quash valid outrage?
