A perfectly good reason for why a toggleable language filter should be added.
Which won't really help with comments like "I am going to shove this <insert random weapon name> so far up your <insert random orifice> it'll come out your <insert random orifice>" or "I am coming to your house to <insert random act of violence> your mother" which are so commonly used for 'trash' talking.

I do! I'm like the only person who will admit that they don't mind and think its kinda fun to loose.
Anyway, I think I said said it wrong. I was actually asking if you guys and gals would like to have a little bit of time at the beginning of each round before the fighting actually takes its course for trash talk. Anymore after that period would lead to some sort of punishment like... Da Banhammer!

To Clanners: "your a freebirth and your mother was a merchant class"
To Kuritans: "Honorless spawn of a Davion"
To Davions: "You fight like your from House Liao"
To Stieners: "Is that a Locust your driving?"
To Marik "Have you filled out all the required paperwork for an assault yet?"
To House Liao "ummm damn im sorry, you have my sympathies"

If there is no public VOIP ingame from the start then people will only talk to their own team members during battle. If they implement VOIP you sould be able to turn it off or at least create private channels for your team.
It IS actually fun to loose at times. Esprecially when you have those battles where everything balances on the edge of a knife or you spend 10 minutes dodging and weaving each others shots and none of you have any kind of armor left.
Its loosing in a GOOD way after a very long satisfying battle.
I call it battlesex.
Was it good for you? it was good for me.

Like in WoT and I've knocked out 6 tanks, but we're still going to lose because I'm the only one who's actually taken down an enemy.
At that point, it's like.. Come on guys.. Come on..

Start winning and people start screaming that they want your address so they can beat you up in real life.
It's funny at first but it becomes obnoxious very quickly.

By the way, the wording of your polling could have a little more thought put into it.

It's mainly just for funsies and competitive spirit, but naturally some people go overboard and are very unpleasant.
I would love a minute before a match to talk trash and make battletech jokes at one another. If someone takes it too far, which is likely in any online game, that just means you and your lancemates can have the joy of gang-owning them.

If I make a wrong tactical decision and someone says "LOL dude what were you trying to accomplish there?" I'll be like "Well not THAT! LOL" you know. Banter, even fun antagonistic banter, can be fine.
I don't even call that trash talk.
My fury meter really only goes up when someone who has achieved nothing for the team is belligerently calling other, better, team members "noobs".
"Noob" might be my most hated term in online gaming. Not because of the implication. If I or someone else are not well versed in what we're tasked at doing, we are in fact beginners. No big deal there. It's that 99% of people who say "NOOB!" are socially handicapped underage delinquents with wiener issues.
It would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

anybody who cant handle some good and wholesome trash talk is a butthurt silly billy
and conversely, anybody who runs their mouth more than they play is more likely to lose anyway.
the thing about braggarts is, they invision themselves as such a big thing that they are often lost in narcissistic fantasies during competition, making them easy prey.
in fact, if someone is showing indiciations of having a big ego, instigating a sudden inflation of their ego by projecting an image of inferiority on yourself is a tried and true trolling technique, and quite a handy subversive tactic for getting into a competitor's head.
when it comes to show time, exploit every weakness you find, physical and mental, no mercy is to be shown as mercy is detrimental to winning.

To me its a matter of mutual respect and I hope trash talk will not be very common. I might not post much, but I read almost daily, the majority of posters seem more mature than those in many forums I've frequented over the years. I hope (even if its futile) that will also be reflected in the majority of the games.
And to anyone saying trash talk is a part of gaming; I've been a member of various (non-BT) clans, guilds, corps etc. Each and every one of them had a simple rule; respect eachother. Trash talk was practically non-existent, which meant everyone had fun.
