There is literally no activity or organization that will not be converged, unless it actively and aggressively resists convergence:
Expert Scrabble players have blasted the game’s owner as ‘virtue signalling’ and ‘woke’ after it banned 400 derogatory terms as playable moves.
Racial slurs including the ‘n-word’, insults against the elderly and homophobic terms were removed from Scrabble’s official online words list following worldwide anti-racism protests in the wake of the death of American George Floyd.
Scrabble’s owner Mattel said it made the change to make it more relevant culturally following global unrest last year.
But Scrabble grandmaster David Webb said the move has been interpreted as ‘virtue signalling’.
Offensive terms including the ‘n-word’ were removed from Scrabble’s official online words list following worldwide anti-racism protests in the wake of the death of American George Floyd.
The exact list of banned words has not been released.
Of course it hasn’t. The objective is to be able to administer the rules on a subjective basis, thereby granting the converged authority more power and flexibility while allowing them to avoid ever being held accountable to an objective standard.
