So apparently "God" is considered innapropriate on Miiverse.

Can't you just write out the message? If they actually delete your message after posting assuming it's not offensive... I don't know what to say.


They censor drawings as well. They especially have ninja-like Moderators on Drawings. They personally know that's where people abuse ToS the most. So yeah, they are pretty darn good at detecting words and imagery in those.

It isn't Nintendo. Television blocks out the word God all the time. It's quite funny to hear the censored program when a character says, "---damn it!" Like out of the two words "God" and "Damn" that kids might pick up, let's make sure they don't learn that horrible G-word.


Lol? What television shows are you watching?

How is it incorrect? If it's files on your computer it's private, however if you publish it and make it visible to other people it becomes public.

It's still your property. Also, you're talking about publishing. The Nintendo Network is, effectively, legally a club. You get in based on Nintendo's entry conditions. You stay based on Nintendo's sufferance and nothing else. Your speech is limited in whatever ways Nintendo wants it to be limited. They are not a government. Your freedom of speech rights do not apply.


It depends on if they are a public or private club, it does not have to be government, no public institution can violate your free speech. Even public clubs are not allowed to violate your free speech.

You would have shrugged that off IF it really happened , unless you had an ulterior motive or you posted it in an entire different context than how you have posted it in your topic post.

You still don't get what freedom of speech is. It prevents the government making laws abridging your speech. That's all. The only way a club can violate your speech is by somehow forcing the government to make laws abridging it.

I think it comes down to a little more than that and is left up to interpretation, it's typically private if it has a lot of membership requirements, in this case the only real requirement is owning a wii u. To access the internet you need a PC, that doesn't make the internet a club.
#90AkaimizuPosted 12/14/2012 9:08:36 AM(edited)
But every forum on the internet IS a club. This is the thing. You are asked to agree to Terms of Service upon entering that club. You do so voluntarily and anybody who makes an account to post in it, does so. Just like being at a Job, doing anything you sign up for, you agree that certain things are taboo to say. Get used to it.

Thinking otherwise is like trying to say that you enter a person's domicile in some country for where the rules are you can't do something, you argue for it since the world outside of it gives you full freedom to do it.

And using Miiverse doesn't mean you simply just have a Wii U. You can use a Wii U without Miiverse. In fact, you don't use Miiverse without first signing up for it. Remember that, account signup stuff you have? Yeah, that thing. Now you can fully not use Miiverse if you don't want to, but you did agree to some things.
