According to Cameralady, she was banned from the official RPG Maker IRC for talking about 2k3, because "there is no legal english version".
That was probably before the legal English version was made. It is in their site rules afterall. 2k also isn't allowed to be talked about except as a passing mention because there is no current legal English version. Also, more than likely she was told various times not to do so and either ignored them or argued back - both of which are bannable offences on most forums, so...
That's straight up stupid. If she were going around telling people to pirate it or something similar, then sure, that's a perfectly reasonable reason to tell them to stop or take more serious action if that's the way you want your forum run. Outright forbidding the mentioning of something that does not have a legal release in a region of the world is an entirely other (ridiculous) matter, though."Hey guys, marijuana is illegal in parts of the world so don't talk about it or you're dead. Also if you're gay then that's a permaban for you and your entire family. Thanks."
You can be against those things and if you have a forum then you can choose to run it that way, but that doesn't mean you aren't going to look like you're anything other than tyrannical.
I suppose a more appropriate example would be Dragon Quest X has not been released outside of Japan, therefore if you talk about it you're banned.
, totally neglecting the fact that if a person is talking about it, then it does not mean they have pirated it or even played it, that even if a person has played it that does not mean they didn't acquire it illegally, and that some people speak Japanese as a second language and have a perfectly valid reason for importing it. Also how is a company supposed to gauge interest in a product outside of its own region of the world if no one outside of its region in the world is allowed to even mention it? God this is so stupid.
