You might have seen me on the ban list today and I just wanted to state out there my opinion.
This afternoon I got banned after playing for a while (I have ingame time of 1 week) on the spot because I said something along the lines of:
Told you ♥♥♥, I am not a Traitor, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ told you.
The trigger word of this ban was the word ♥♥♥. I didn't sound angry, I just wanted to proof my point to the guy that tried to kos me because he sussed me. My vocab being not the nicest (I am a Dutchie aka I am quite straight to the point without meaning it really) I used the word ♥♥♥ as that was the first word that came into my head.
Without any warnings or asking why I said it I got banned for saying the word "♥♥♥" (Hateful Conduct) aka 7 days. This in my opinion is way too excessive as I have no prior history of disrespectful behavior, just some wrong word choice at that point. (not to mention what others stated there aswell or how many times I have heard the word going around)
I am 90% sure there is this booklet of banlength with "hateful conduct" being 7 days no matter what.
This in my opinion is kinda bullshit, if I say one word towards a guy (kinda on accident but I get it), I get the same length of a ban than a guy that has been raging for the past 20 minutes or just kept screaming "aderogatory" terms (as the staff member described the word) or any other kind of hateful comment.
Is it really necessary to have such a ban length over 1 word? in my opinion the banlength in the "rulebook for staff" should be looked at per individual and the 7 days here should be the maximum when someone genuinely went nuts.
tl;dr: Ban Length should be subject to previous history and genuine rulebreakage and not just pile it up on one single rule and punishment in my opinion
I would love to hear you guys opinion about it!
Sidenote: btw this is not due to salt as I am going away for 7 days anyway so I won't be able to play, this is just because it is kinda unfair and stupid.
If this thread according to staff has too much salt, delete it, it is just a thing I noticed and it kinda is strange as you would expect a fair system, you wouldn't give the same punishment to a man who stole a bread vs a man who stole millions of dollars? anyway if it is not allowed here just delete, I don't need a forum ban
