With Overlords of Outlands now available for playtesting, players have noticed that the “/spit” emote no longer works if you have someone targeted on Burning Crusade Classic test servers.
Since the release of Blizzard's MMO, players have been able to spit at other players or characters, targeting them and typing / spitting. This no longer works in the latest version of PTR, although players can still use the emote on the ground.
It is assumed that the changes have been made in the context of toxicity control. Not so long ago, the game even played out a whole drama, when users, at the call of the popular streamer Asmongold, met and saw off customers of the Deluxe edition with spitting, which added a rideable image to the game that was not in the original Burning Crusade, forcing them to change the mode of transport to not emphasizing prosperity.
We are not sure at this time if this is a bug or Blizzard decided to remove it for a different reason, but there are multiple threads on the official forums discussing potential reasons for the removal.
A recent statement by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, released after a lawsuit in the state of California documenting a history of sexual harassment and discrimination at the studio, states that content deemed "inappropriate" would be removed from Activision Blizzard games, but not the did expand what that might mean. A separate statement from the WoW development team states that it would take steps to "remove references that are not appropriate for our world."
