How to report a player for Racism?
I have repeatedly been joining games where people have been throwing racist hate and been calling other players things like "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥" and "autistic ♥♥♥♥ers"... I appreciate that this is the internet but at the same time I, along with many other DB players don't want the player base to become toxic and filled with horrible behavior to other players...

I'd suggest using the in-game report for "offensive name" and add the things they say in chat into the "extra data" box

are you going to be that crybaby kid that gets offended by everything he sees and hears on internet? Wrong community bro! Go play Overwatch! They are know for crying all the time for no reason. Grow a pair!

New to the internet?

Don't get offended so easily, insults are just words that angry immature people spit out to release some frutration and anger. Mute everyone before starting to play and problem solved. Those insults are nothing compared to what I hear on every single lobby

Sorry for having concern but I don't want this game to become toxic like most communities... I'm not usually offended that easily but at the same time I've seen many games rise and fall and lose players because of simple things like constant whining from three year olds... people saying "grow a pair" are likely the ones doing it themselves... and how would you like it if you were new to a game/the Internet and all you got was constantly abuse? The Internet is supposed to be a place for everybody... not just morons wanting to express their masculinity through a video game... Racism is just pure hatred anyways and senseless... people who so willingly spout hated among the world for no other reason for self satisfaction have no place in fun and enjoyable communities such as steam. Racism is against steams policy and is generally not accepted among any community, if we let this kind of thing go because "grow a pair" then where do we draw the line? What starts off as 5 or 6 people going unpunished ends up as a whole community of people who spout hatred and kill the game because people refuse to take action.

No... I have held administration roles on servers with people in charge who have taken similar stances like you to these situations on games such as GMod... Guess where those servers are now? right at the bottom with a whopping zero players or not even open anymore because playes who joined left soon after because admins and staff were too lazy or told players to "grow a pair" whenever they reported racism... I don't mind things like "scrub" "noob" and "Moron"... cause I can expect those... But when it goes to full blown lobbies of people spouting hateful behvaiour and not getting punished for it, it can deter most people from these kinds of games... notice how I haven't bought COD:AW or IW, because I know those communities are by far the most hateful, and it is also one of the many reasons why those kinds of games tend to die out fairly quickly after the hype storm ended...

The fact that you see this kind of thing daily in lobbies already proves that these kinds of people come in large swarms... It is understandable to spout a little frustration and I mute people if they are just being plain stupid but that doesn't punishg them for doing something which is just blatant racism... I don't usually mute people because I can often find nice allies in battle and have a few on my steam friends list, but surely those who consistently aim to make the community toxic have no place among players who just wanna chill and have fun?

Fascinating. I play on EU server mostly and experienced such behavior only once in my entire playtime.
Many players ignore team balance and prefer unfair matches (what's boring and annoying) but racism? No. I see even rarely insults.
So for me the Dirty Bomb Community is way more temperate than in other games. Mostly unsporting but that's common for every multiplayer game right?^^

I have found that DB is definately one of the most calm and cool communities out there on Steam at the moment, but since the release of competetive I have seen an increase in this kind of behaviour...
