You all understand freedom's come with responsibility, including freedom of speech. Just because you can say whatever you want does not mean it does not have consequences. EA might be a little overboard concerning their filters but it is what it is. Using insulting language at a police officer etc. will land you in trouble irrespective of your freedoms. It is the user of that speech that has the responsibility to act accordingly, if you are at somebody's house they might not invite you back if you do not act accordingly and that is their right, the same goes for when you agree to EA's TOS. 

 

We all get frustrated from time to time but just because you can say a thing does not make it allowable in certain situations.

 

Take the high road laugh it off and do not be insulting to others if you do not want the ban-hammer to come down on you, after all it is just a game and we all want to enjoy it.

@killlthem666 Freedom of speech.

Let me guess, you called someone or multiple people a *putWordFilteredByProfanityfilterHere* ?

And specific skincolors protect you from being banned ? ... Always thought all people are equal.

@ApyhsYou know that people get actually banned for just cursing?

Recently someone showed a mail here of EA with him getting banned for a week for saying something like:
Can you come and F. help?
So i would consider that freedom of speech tbh

l love how people have no idea what "freedom of speech" means.  

 

It basically means you can say what you like, without government interference (bar laws vs hate speech, etc), but it does not remove any consequence for said speech.  If you say something stupid or against someones TOCs then, as a private entity, they can ban you all they like.

@RevMainPlsOf course not, as people tend to vote for politicians who receive big donos from corporations, i.e. less corporate regulation, less consumer protection, etc..
