So I was just chatting with someone from the duel server I was playing on, and apparently he’s been banned from using in-game chat for almost an entire year! That seems entirely preposterous to me. First off, I didn’t know it was possible to be banned from chat; secondly, I can’t even imagine what sort of satanic chat transgression you would need to have committed in order for your person to be denied from chatting in-game for an entire year. I don’t agree with a chat ban/censorship at all (votekicks will take care of that if need-be), but for it to go on for an entire year is completely ridiculous. After talking to the censored-in-question, here’s what he told me:
This forum post is a petition for this poor guy to have his freedom of speech back. I mean I’ve heard the absolute worst of humanity come out of chiv chat, and I myself have participated in that, and I’ve never heard of somebody getting their voice entirely snatched from the game.
Rotsy!: haha fuckin nice one
Rotsy!: id address you in the chat, but im chat banned
Sheep: is that a real thing?
Sheep: how does that happen
Rotsy!: lol let me finish this fight, and i will tell you the short story, its commpletely unjustified
Sheep: interested to hear it
Rotsy!: okay so
Rotsy!: long sotry short, i was in a lobby and there was a player named “NIGGGER”… spelled just like that. he was being very rude, and i addressed him by his name. and an admin named “PDK” saw me address him, and literally banned me first, then i complained, and they reduced it to a chat ban. i even have witnesses who backed me up
Rotsy!: its complete horseshit
Sheep: yeah that does sound like horseshit
Sheep: I didn’t even know
Sheep: what server was this?
Sheep: it’s like you have to file a lawsuit against someone, to get the banned from the game at all
Sheep: but I’ve never heard of someone being banned from the chat
Rotsy!: it was duel mode 09 west
Rotsy!: about 1 year ago
Sheep: wait so you can’t talk in chat for a year?
Sheep: no way
Rotsy!: i havnt been able to talk for about 1 year
Rotsy!: and its staying that way
Sheep: not at all
Rotsy!: i had baron von moorland undue it, but then, the next day, i was re-baned
Sheep: I’m going to get you unbanned
Sheep: like anything else to that story?
Sheep: again I’ve NEVER heard of someone being banned from chat entirely
Rotsy!: no, thats literally it,
Rotsy!: no joke
Rotsy!: i cant type in any official server
Sheep: we’re gonna petition for you my man
Rotsy!: great to hear, psilo cybane is my witness
Rotsy!: and PDK needs to be taken off the admin team
Rotsy!: ive heard similar stories to mine, all of them involving him
So in conclusion, if you support the motion to reinstate this guy’s ability to CHAT IN THE FUCKING GAME, please support this! How ridiculous is it that we hear constant racist;inflamatory;vulgar;hate-filled chat 24/7 and THIS guy gets banned from being able to talk in the game? What the fuck? Am I the only person who thinks this is completely unwarranted?
Please show your support, and thank you for reading.
