Thank you very much random428, I am glad to hear that. As per the suggestions by Wilt, I also emailed contact@tornbanner and also put the link to this into the admin official steam group. Please keep me updated.

Extreme Harassment, Toxicity and Racism on Official Classic UK #5 and Others
Hello everyone, for the last 3-4 days I’ve been constantly getting harassed by 2 Turks with the names “ASKER” and “Komando” who appear to be siblings. It started with them finding out I was an Armenian (Turks and Armenians have a past). At first I just tried to handle them with some people from the server supporting me to keep my sanity, but it just kept going, and kept getting more toxic as I kept silent.
I have screenshots, when uploaded they become way too small to read, so I’ll just post cropped Puush links hoping it’s okay to do so. I do want to believe this to have surpassed the “warning” stage at this point, they think nobody cares about the official servers anymore and endlessly keep taunting me and bringing up their views on the genocide. Do keep in mind that these screenshots are after I had enough of them; after 3-4 days of them constantly doing this.
I have kept silent and took the hits trusting in your judgement. Please do what must be done; they don’t only do this in Official Classic UK #5, but other UK and DE servers they do frequent and harass in as well.
(here Mithrandir and Mystical had enough of them too)
(Translation: …All got slaughtered | your generation will also be killed by f’ing | you son of a bi’h | you seed of a wh’re | bastard)
(I warned them this was the last straw and that I was going to be taking screenshots. I did. Translation: Armenian seed)
(Translation: Ermeniler = Armenians)
(when I asked if there was an admin around; translation: Armenian bastard)
(here one of them admits to being racist)
(after they threaten to ban me without provocation and I decide that I’ve had enough)
This is ASKER’s steam profile: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197995682294/
This is Komando’s: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197995459782/
I hope their actions come with consequences.
RE: Ban Appeals
Steam Community ID: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198039678084
Server you were banned on: Official TO DE #01
Who banned me: No idea.
Reason for ban: “Discriminatory Language”
Your appeal: I feel like this case was very improperly handled; without any warnings to me beforehand and without offering the benefit of a doubt; in an instant. Someone said “the N word” in a humorous way, and got warned by either an authoritative person or another player with the sentence “Name, watch your language”. I replied by saying the person had said nothing wrong, and in fact he just said “the N word”. I was going to follow my sentence up by saying “I also am black, and I use ‘the N word’ in every context imaginable with my brothers and sisters without any negative response; we laugh.”, but alas, while I was typing, I was already banned. Needless to say it wouldn’t be smart of me to be “discriminating” against my own race.
I, as a long time player, suggest that admins make the effort to discuss the player’s standing on the matter before brandishing the banhammer, and I urge the authorities to reconsider the actions of my banner. I don’t even know for how long I’m banned, but I’m assuming it’s a permanent ban with a false accusation for just a simple word that was meant to offend no one (used in an obvious humorous context; I wasn’t offended); not to even mention the fact that I wasn’t the one who uttered it, and the one who actually uttered it was untouched by the banhammer.
Seeing as there are only a couple of servers I can log in without lag to enjoy the game, being banned from one, especially like this, is extremely unpleasant. Thanks for your time.
