    As we've answered before (directly to knowing parties), and keeping in mind the scope of these words and symbols typically used in the community in the past, they are known and recognized as real-world divisive symbols at best, and pure racist hate symbols at worst, regardless of their original historical reference. They also have no grounding whatsoever in the game or its lore to explain them sufficiently outside of this context to be allowed further use.

    If there are any concerns with any other use of symbolism (you mention Hospitallers) in the community that may actually and seriously be a controversial issue, please let us know and we will absolutely investigate. We appreciate the change of the related frog use to the snake, this is a good step and we appreciate that recognition. However, if submissions or questions are identified with the intent to troll or still up controversy for the sake of doing so, or simply to win an argument, then we may not be able to take action.

    Any publicly accessible posts or mentions about Kek and related symbolisms in the forums and other official community channels (game, Discord, Steam pages, social pages, etc.) will continue to be moderated, so please just don't post them and all will be well.
