The ones arguing against using filters in commentary don't understand the potential we have to make our scene grow into something bigger and better. If we truly desire to increase the accessibility of our community, not only should we try to appeal to newcomers, we should strive to avoid alienating groups by using potentially offensive speech. Finding a derogatory term inoffensive to you shouldn't matter, that's plain selfish. We need to be more more considerate of others and stop perpetuating in this respect. Potential sponsors don't want to see their brand associated with a person who shows no regard for things like racial slurs, rape, and other derogatory terms. If you want more people to join the scene and smash to blow up into a big esport please understand why this is should be taken seriously. Playing devil's advocate and debating slippery slopes doesn't cut it in the business world. It's either we follow the rules, or stay stuck in the grassroots vortex for life.

- just because something is commonplace in business, that doesn't mean it has a place in a competitive video game with a niche audience. this just confirms to me that the censorship was done out of a desire to make smash into a money-making industry rather than a video game. vgbc & ct already have a monopoly on smash content & their influence in the smash community is wider than they realise. at this point, i believe it'd be wise to not only look at how smash can have the benefits of being considered a real sport, but also at how it may become something even better. i may use a lot of words, but my philosophy is simple: we all have the same love for smash as a game, but let's not quit our day jobs. work is work for a reason. maybe if certain people in high places in the community didn't wanna exploit smash financially & make a living off of it, they wouldn't feel the need to pull people off the mic. maybe we'd all be happier & this never would've been a problem in the first place.
there's nothing wrong with having no commercial potential if you're happy with your life already before playing/commentating/streaming/archiving footage of/doing whatever to do with video games.1 de out de 2014
- Appealing to sponsors doesn't have to mean they're being greedy. The truth is money has to come from somewhere to run tournaments, and even Xanadu nights I'm sure. I doubt anyone (with the exception of some career-minded folk) are doing this to make a living. It would be naive to think Smash works that way. I understand what you're saying, but it seems you're taking a more cynical approach when thinking about the motivation behind the push for a professional public-facing attitude. If Gimr thinks a clean channel is what it takes to keep his channel running, so be it. If a clean channel is simply a preference of his, so be it. It's not impeding on anyone's ability to play and love Smash, so why is the sky falling because one stream is censoring some harsh language?2 de out de 2014
- xD1x+1Allowing one person to speak without thought that could potentially alienate more viewers is selfish. If at the cost of one individuals freedom to say what they please for the sake of the community so be it. Regardless of where you're taking this argument, the perpetrator realized the fault in his actions and acts accordingly on the mic now. No one is trying to lose sponsors that they previously had over allowing obscenities to broadcast to a wide audience of viewers. Mind you there are more than just young adults watching, kids tune in to these streams as well, and I've had parents commend me on trying to maintain professionalism when it comes to streams. We need to think out of the box and realize the community is just more than 16-30 year old men. We have kids, women, LGBT, old folks, religious people, and more tuning in and we have to keep all the different people in mind to not alienate them. That's what working to grow a community is all about.2 de out de 2014
- I am fully in favor of an all-inclusive stream, and I think VGBC is promoting the right mindset for that kind of thing. You certainly can't please everyone, but purposefully catering to only one demographic (i.e most smashers) is a step backwards if we're trying to spread Smash as far as it can go. As a side note, I mentioned it would be naive to pursue a career in Smash, but if there were one person to succeed it would be you, so keep truckin' and ignore anyone who says Smash needs to stay underground.2 de out de 2014
