Listen sometime you deserve to be chant banned and some times its just crap. Here is what I got chat banned for, 15 days mind you.

 

A player, not me, called another player "gay"

Another player said you shouldn't do that, I replied, "gay means happy correct"

Some more chat followed and Webster's dictionally came up, then I replied  yep I checked Webster's it means happy and joyful.

 

I mean what the hell, so I put in a ticket to repeal the ban. The person reply that I was in violation of the EULA. However, I never called anyone "gay" just messed around with the person who called someone "gay" . So I put in a follow up requesting and explanation on how what I said was a personal attack or abuse of someone.

 

The answer "we cant add anything to what was written before" what a load of crap, that's just weak. I used no George Carlin words at all

But you used the same word he did.  That is how they do it.   Had you just reported him, and not responded he only would receive the band.

Sorry to hear about your luck man. However be careful, forum rules forbid open discussion of corrective actions. You might could appeal it. Hope it works out for you.

It sounds like the people that review reports are the same ones that write our clear, concise descriptions of events.

Why would I report him I just said gay meant happy

Once I saw a player with the name "Ni**ger Hater.       I addressed him by his name, to ask about the name.  Then reported the name.    I got banned for a week.

I think they ding you for engaging, and using the offensive word.   Since you are also using it.   I'm not agreeing with it, just explaining.

I put in a appeal, but when you ask for an explanation and you get none, except no comment. Then you shouldn't even have an appeal button. It won't help nothing you can do

Was your chat ban wrong?  Probably.

Could you have avoided it all by simply not involving yourself in the first place?  Yep.

@vikingno2, you are also in violation of forum guidlines, Discussing moderation which also applies to in game moderation. I suggest deleting all of your stuff in this thread.

 First of all, saying something that is uncivil in the chat is wrong and you get banned for that as far as I'm concerned. I believe the in battle chat is meant to communicate to teammates about battle related stuff etc. etc. 

I rarely look at the chat or type (it's just me), but if someone is acting "uncivil" I tend to send a support ticket and forget. 

If you believe you've been mistreated, I'm sure @Hapa_Fodder will set aside some time and discuss things over with you.

Take care, have a blessed day :-)

As with most posts like this, I would ask that you please put a ticket in and ask specifically what got your chat banned and why for some long.

That being said, discussing moderation or punitive actions is a forum violation so this topic is now locked.
