Kyro, thank you for your semi-moderating of these forums. It is much appreciated (seriously). But, do you have any idea what reputation these forums are getting by the outragous derogatory comments that you guys give "shoulder shrugs" to? I know that you want to allow "free speech" ect, and that your main job is not to "moderate" forums, but, come one, if that was a black/jewish\women comment, you would have banned the guy for sure, But it's just about "gays" right, so no big deal, so here's our oblibitory verbal slap on the wrist. It's has nothing to do with blacks, jews, or women, it's just "faggots" so no big deal . . .
I agree with PurplePaladin.
As a gay man myself and as a loyal Stardock fan for years, I too am getting sick of this community and I am sick of the moderators standing by whilst such posts go unchecked. I have already returned my copy of Demigod for a refund mostly due to this community, both in game and out, not because I am impatient for updates to make the game work correctly.
I realize that policing forums is a challenge, but I fear that it's precisely this "community" that will limit sales of this game.
+1 Karma to you PurplePaladin for sticking up for what is right.
