I feel the need to clarify my previous post.
Safe Harbor is a provision of US law under the DMCA, and applies to copyrighted materials. It probably doesn’t apply to table chat at all. My point was that we live in a crazy world, and legal stuff isn’t always obvious. As far as I know (which isn’t that far) the UK doesn’t use the DMCA, though they might have something similar.
On the other hand, “hate speech” isn’t a “thing” under US law, but it is (I think) under UK law.
Allowing foreign language chat does make moderation more difficult, and it MIGHT expose the site to some sort of legal liability.
That’s all I am saying.
Do I care if players actually collude? No, I don’t. It follows then that I don’t care if they might be colluding.
For what it’s worth, I also don’t care all that much if they expose themselves to legal liability. I’m sure they have solicitors they over-pay, let them ask (if they haven’t already) and I am 100% fine with whatever they conclude.
As I have already stated, foreign language chat doesn’t bother me personally. When I see it, I just paste the same thing back in chat with a question mark at the end, and keep doing that until it no longer amuses me, which doesn’t take all that long.
