    BANNED FROM EMBLEMS

    bparrish1
      I went to log on to call of duty this morning to find out that I have been banned from emblems. Im assuming that this is because I had the german flag with a swastika banner as my player card. I would like someone out there from activision or tryarch to explain to me how I am in the wrong when I can go onto zombies and see swastikas on every wall and all over the floor. The other problem I have is that there is a thousand other emblems out there that are more offensive than mine was. There are guys making pictures of female anatomy, confederate flags, little men that look like clan members and so on. I had a symbol from the biggest wars this world has ever seen and I am banned from using my emblem feature. This is completely unfair. I would like to know how this is wrong. I don't understand what I did wrong. I was not warned about this emblem, and to me I cannot understand how it is racially offensive. If someone from up top would have sent me a message on the playstation network warning me that it was viewed that way I would have taken it down.

          I am not dogging, judging or anything else for that matter but why did you want a swastika as your emblem. There are tons of these emblems around the community and I dont understand what the message is.

            You were banned for not being able to use the search function to find the 1000 other threads about people being banned for swastikas.  On a side note, mine was banned to though and all i had one a chick on there with no nudity and no sexual acts involved at all.  but mine was only a temp ban so it will be back up soon.

              I never got that either how they can promote it in Zombie and not allow you to use it as an Emblem, contradiction in terms, sorry your perm ban mate, seems unfair to me.

                  The Swastika is an insta-ban.

                  The other "more offensive" emblems you speak of will get their ban as well. They just have to be reported and reviewed first.

                    And another ignorant racist bites the dust, kudos Treyarch !!  

                    Just love the moronic excuses by the mindless sheep without an ounce of creativity in their bodies come here and try and defend their racist acts.

                      They put it in the game to show it as a historic event, when people have it as their emblem they think they are nazi lovers.

                            I am still waiting on that answer. I havent had ONE person who had a swastika tell me why they were using it.

                              Funny...not once have I seen ANYONE with the balls to walk around wearing a swatsika in public.  Why don't you do that and try to use your explanantion while you're being stomped into the concrete.

                                OMFG! That is a win. ^^^

                                But I don't think you should be automatically banned for having a swastica. If people put their area code, do you automatically think they are in a gang, because that's what everyone I know uses it for. Yeah, its dumb to have that as your emblem because you are just asking to get in trouble, but getting banned for it is stupid. I see plenty of people that have lude and sexual playercard emblems but don't get in trouble. And, you can have FTW on your emblem, which some people say means For The Win, but a lot of people use it as F*** The World. That is how I first heard of it used.

                                Don't use double standards to judge/ban people from the game. Its online play, either get over it or don't play. Its just a picture. Why don't people complain to google or any other website with "racist" things on it. Grow up and get over it.

                                  it's been explicitly stated over and over that swastikas will earn an instant ban from emblem editing.

                                  problem?

                                      It's really quite easy to determine a poster's age or IQ on this forum with threads like these.

                                        Look the Holocost is why your banned next time use the German Cross, its Germany's symbol, if you like German use the German Cross the not Swastiga. BUT you wrong to ban him the Swastiga is the symbol for WIND in Cherokee.  If you don't believe me look it up. So idk if this good ban or not. -shrugs-

                                        I am guessing his shoe size is higher than his IQ. 

                                        How did he manage to look it up if he cant even spell "swastiga" correctly...  :o

                                              I think it's in Zombies because you are blowing away Nazi Zombies, you are blowing them away becuase they were bad people thus if you want to use that symbol you are also going to be considered a bad person and banned from the Emblem maker.

                                              And just asking because i dont know for sure, but all the people with the swastikas say its in the Zombies portion, is it in the MP part?  I haven't seen it and i dont play Zombies so I havent seen one yet other then in peoples emblem...

                                                              Swastikas, penises, and girls:

                                                              1. You're using an emblem that over 3,000 people are probably also using. Have you no creativity? No originality?
                                                              2. You have 12 layers and 20+ pages of icons to work with, yet you're determined to use a bunch of suppressors to make a stupid swastika.
                                                              3. Who wants to see a bunch of penises and girls in COD? I question the sexuality of any guy that has a penis as his playercard. And if I want to see girls I can go outside and see some that aren't animated and don't have flames for hair.

                                                              Get a life. Be original. Take 30 minutes to put some layers together and make something unique.

Im assuming that this is because I had the german flag with a swastika banner as my player card. I would like someone out there from activision or tryarch to explain to me how I am in the wrong when I can go onto zombies and see swastikas on every wall and all over the floor. The other problem I have is that there is a thousand other emblems out there that are more offensive than mine was. There are guys making pictures of female anatomy, confederate flags, little men that look like clan members and so on. I had a symbol from the biggest wars this world has ever seen and I am banned from using my emblem feature. This is completely unfair. I would like to know how this is wrong. I don't understand what I did wrong. I was not warned about this emblem, and to me I cannot understand how it is racially offensive. If someone from up top would have sent me a message on the playstation network warning me that it was viewed that way I would have taken it down.

Instead of hiding behind the anonymity of the internet and we'll see what happens. Chances are if you can't do something in public, it's wrong and not acceptable. If you can send me a camera feed of you walking through a mall or Wal-Mart at around 7:00 p.m. with a swastika on, and then I'll have some start of understanding as to why you think you can use it in the game.

                                                                                  also yes i enjoy going against the grain.

Context is everything idiots, the context in zombies is that you are fighting the side which adopts the swastika, they are the enemy and you are fighting the evil that is the nazi regime... in zombie form.

                                                                                        the context surrounding your playercard is promoting the the swastika, it is your emblem and what you are fighting for so to speak, having it as your emblem suggests you support what it stands for. if you personally adopt the swastika then you are sending a pro nazi message and the political and racial views it promotes. its context and yes you should be banned and you were rightfully and if you came into a lobby with me i would report you.

                                                                                        stop being idiots, stop putting images with connotations of genocide on your emblems and stop ******** about it when you get banned, i mean you cant honestly sit there and say you had the swastika because its the so and so symbol for sun, you did it because in your 12 year old head it seemed like a cool, radical thing to do and would show everyone how against the grain you think you are.

                                                                                        stupid people are stupid,
