    I have been a member of the BB(battle bay) community for quite a while now(couple of years), and this is my biggest concern that I will adress. I think reporting players for bad chat behaviour is a JOKE. Being a person of “colour” I always feel so bad that people use racist terms to hurt people in the chat, so I do my best to report them. But it seems as if one can do whatever one wants in the chat without getting banned or reprimanded, since I still see those players being active. While the game itself has developed in a good direction, your “connection” with players trying to keep this game clean has dropped to the point where I have to question what type of game I’m supporting by playing and spending money on. Like I said. Some aspect has become a JOKE and the chat moderation is something that has bothered me enough to speak out loud about. Im not even going to say please do something about it, but DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Getting sick of feeling bad because you don’t do squat to remove those players from the chat for being racist. I have small cousins playing this game and they have reacted to the racism they see in the chat(among other things). The only reason they are playing it is because of me, so I’m responsible for them. Your way of taking responsible is a JOKE!
    DO SOMETHING!!!

    I can do that. But my cousins won’t. Even though it hurts them, they keep on reading it. And by the way. Reporting doesn’t do squat.

    Just tell your cousins to ignore racist players cause they don’t need to listen to them. Anyway, How could they be racist if they don’t know them in real life?

    Rovio don’t seem to care AT ALL friend. For me, it’s enough that someone uses racist slur, to call them racist. I don’t know if you have ever experienced racism before, but I grew up experiencing it all the time, and I still do. That stuff hurts. My cousins are still young(teens) so they feel they have to “fight” back. So they dont block. They are just like me and wants to see some consequences.

    By looking at the flag on the profile? And you don't have to know somebody to be racist. Just posting racial slurs in the chat is absolutely racist.

    Better chat filtering and implementation of muting is still being worked on. Please continue to report the offenders; they do get looked into, but there's a long moderation queue. If there's a particularly bad example, please take screenshots and privately send them to myself, or another MVP or Rovio employee via the forum's private messaging service.

    Although I do have to concede that there's a bit of hypocrisy here with regards to your forum username. If that's your in-game name as well, I imagine there's several parents who aren't too keen on explaining its colloquial meaning to their young children either. "He who lives in glass houses" and all that jazz.

    However, appealing to hypocrisy does not change the truth of what he’s saying.

    Regardless of what his name is, racism and abuse has no place in the chat.

    Similar to the OP's concern I've reported more than one player with an offensive name. I'm not aware that any action has been taken particularly since I saw one of them weeks afterwards. This is a fairly important issue that Rovio needs to take seriously.

    Awesome, good to know. Unfortunately the chat problem is less easy to solve.

    Forget I asked. Just googled it. I was not aware that fingerbang ment what it ment in the dictionary. My meaning with the name is that i use my finger to shoot. Will change it now.
