I can't tell from the screenshot. I will trust in you that it somehow depicts a concentration camp, though. I wouldn't allow levels akin to that if I ran a server, as many people would be too averted to play.OjitroC wrote: ↑Mon Mar 08, 2021 6:35 pmOne really has to wonder where that's person's head was - in what world is 'that' an appropriate theme for a map? A close second to that map are the 9/11 'tribute' maps - seeking to commemorate the several thousand people who died by making a map for people to run around in killing each other!!! In poor taste is the least one can say about all that. End of rant.
I will definitely agree that those themes are poor taste. Many people died in the historical events depicted. And indeed, when I talk about history or politics, generally it's exclusively in a serious tone, as it is important to respect the course of History. However, I don't believe those levels glorify or condone the tragedies depicted in them. If they did, I would have no reservations with labeling them as inciting violence, or even hate speech. I agree that any content that constitutes hate speech should be removed from the Unreal Archive.
The description definitely has a suspicious air to it, though.
Now, if from playing the map it can be determined that it is such hate-speech content, I definitely agree that it should be removed entirely.
That's pretty much the most precise word to describe stuff said or made with the only intention of being, well, "cool" (but often in the sense of 'offensive'). Like many kida son the Internet like to do, you know. Usually the #1 strategy is to not feed the troll.

It's actually a very legitimate discussion to be held. I agree that some places on the Internet have no right to arbitrate moral values, but at the same time I think they do have the right to decide not to host something if they disapprove of this something. If you're speaking at someone's house, respect their house rules.
Now, the thing here is that these levels in particular very much could constitute glorification. I don't think that is the case, though. It's still definitely a pretty indecent thing to host, and even if it turned out to be morally fine, it would still be in the weird/crappy side of Unreal Archive.
I still think it is stupid for today's American people to pour their brains everytime someone mentions the September 11th attacks, but I also think one of the worst parts is when they use their misinterpretation of the first amendment of the centuries-old American constitution to justify running around and shouting "cancel!!11!1" everytime someone decides they don't want to be hosting someone saying or doing dumb crap.
Where I live, people tend to be pretty stupid, but at least we are able to function as a proper, somewhat harmonious society. And we also do sometimes have pretty polarized politics to endanger that at times, but usually actual issues prevail. I really don't like how people have fallen into feuded animosity. But the average person here has enough brains to not scream childishly in the road.
