Hi - can't see anywhere else to report this. But game 144264 has some postings to the Shoutbox that look borderline homophobic. Please can you take a look.

Juvenile, definitely. Borderline, yes. But this isn't really enough to act on.

Thank you for reporting this, though!

If you agree that's "borderline" then you are agreeing it is potentially offensive on the basis of sexual orientation. So I think at minimum there's a duty to remove that shoutbox.

Borderline means it is close to the border, as opposed to over it :)

Hence no action is necessary.
