So, I've just been banned by a non-gaming mod for stating something in chat that wasn't flagged, which was along the lines of: "being @ChrisHatez should be a bannable offense.", in a playful string of others stating "X should be a bannable offense."
For this, I was banned for 60 minutes. I wasn't going to complain but then a few moments later the ban got updated to two hours:
your account has been temporarily suspended by a moderator and cannot chat for 1 hour 59 minutes.
First of all, what right does a non-gaming mod have coming into the gaming channel and banning people for things that weren't flagged.
Secondly, as many people who are related to gaming know, I fully ignore people I actually don't like and therefore my comment can be taken as playful banter. Sure, somebody could see it as not playful and therefore I was willing to sit out for the hour ban without comment, however the escalation (which was manual, since my screen refreshed multiple times during the process) is prompting this.
As this is my first ban for this particular subject, and indeed the first ban I've had in a while:
- Please explain why a comment that wasn't flagged resulted in a ban
- Please explain why the ban was then removed and readded with a longer duration
Explain why I should have to tolerate sexist comments, general abuse, comments about feminism, a whole variety of comments directly insulting me (most of which the user in question deleted by themselves before they could be flagged), and yet when I make a single playful comment I get a two hour ban?
