so there was a light-hearted rap battle going on in a thread of the guild politics section of mortal online. i finished my second video and posted it. obviously a joke around video.
i got banned for a day and the video got taken down. it even got taken down repeatedly when i removed the references to duping and banning. i'm just posting it here so the effort isn't a complete waste.
here are the messages exchanged between arbowl and I:
"It's time to change the subject now, and it's time to talk about how Kuthara has all that cash. I'm pretty sure campodons don't drop hash. Or was it really cougar? He must have been using lugers. Or does he think that we're all cooks, it's pretty obvious that he ___"
This is an obvious dupe accusation, even with the blank spot added. People can be productive without breaking the rules. That section of the forum allows for smack talk, but that is taking it too far.Regards,
thanks for taking the time to respond.
for one thing, it might be obvious when people are familiar with the context, sure. if they aren't, they either won't care, or won't understand. i know you're just a soldier, but i'm going to explain why this policy is dumb.
you consider violating this rule (even if this did violate it through implication, which it hardly does unless you know the context) the worse thing in the video? that's fucking ridiculous. there are way more vulgar verses that are much more insulting, such as the last one. about making the gf's of diph and merk pregnant. like, how the fuck is suggesting(with these censorships) kuthara dupes even CLOSE to touching the other verses seriousness?((OUT OF TRANSCRIPT EDIT: the funny part is that kuthara responded in two posts after the video was posted and made a comment of how bad the other rappers in the competition were, and outright praising me for winning so far and upvoting the post with the video))
if it isn't obvious enough, i'm oronos, and i understood and accepted the first ban so i made reasonable changes. telling me to rewrite those verses and spend EVEN MORE time on something that is completely for fun which is obviously light-hearted for everyone involved in that thread is crossing a line for me. if you, or any of the mod people SERIOUSLY fucking think that someone gets offended at someone accusing them of duping, you're all out of your FUCKING minds. the only reason they EVER act offended is so the other person gets banned. this isn't to say i don't understand the need for the rule, but this is overboard for me.
yeah, you're just a soldier and don't give a fuck what i think, i get it.
i'm just going to say this. when i'm unbanned tomorrow, on my oronos account, i'm going to post
(link to censored video)
in that rap battle thread. that version, too.
i'm not trying to openly defy you or the mod team, i'm honestly just going to put all of my faith in the MO community in that post. i'm letting you know so you can expect it. i honestly have no idea why i spend the time trying to make people laugh or have fun on these forums when some bullshit like this can be pulled
if it gets deleted, i get banned, or a combination of the two, it's going to be too much for me and i'm seriously not coming back ever again.
btw, i removed the banning references after the first initial blank spot so the listeners don't know what i was talking about. it's more than just muting the dupe part. it's muting the part speculating on the consequences of the original verse. as a final note, remember, i've made reasonable changes to the original version of the song to remove all direct implication of kuth duping. you're asking me to rewrite half the fucking song. DO NOT SAY that i refused to do anything.
end of transcipt
he comes back to say it's still a rule, to which i respond with "that's nice that you allow very personal attacks to the listener and their family while not allowing conversation about their actions in a game which is completely removed from reality. you can try to rationalize this rule, but there is no way that it is justified when put in the context of that video. think about that."
now, i haven't played MO for months so it's not like it's going to matter much to them, but because of this rigidness in their policies, i'm deciding this is a perfect time for me to cut all ties with MO.
game is about to die, anyways. lol.
edit: since everyone thinks they're a critic on rap battle songs, here, let me put something down that you can just copy+paste as a response. "wow, that was so pathetic. it was so uncreative and monotone. you have no business doing anything with music because my dog makes more interesting music eating out of his bowl. that could quite possibly be one of the worse things i've ever heard. kill yourself."
