I used it twice, the discussion was brought up as if I needed to be warned twenty times. I was initially confused by this ban because I said I did it twice. The best example I can give is as follows: team killing once, getting warned by the same person multiple times for the one kill, but because he warned me multiple times and I didn't do it again, I get banned. That is the scenario that pretty much happened. I was being honest with you because the Chinook sponsored politics channel changed into the Chinook sponsored warn Wade 20 times for a 2 time scenario.
I was not the only one using the remark, multiple people used the remark, maybe that is why you were told this over an extended period of time. I did not continue the actions once the discussion started. I only said one thing which I repeated from another user, when I told someone that they were being niggardly towards me in the debate, which was a way to use rhyming word, but I used it truly and was serious about my point. I used it because I felt as if I was not being treated generously because I was not the only one conducting such behavior. It doesn't make it right for me to do so, I'm just trying to explain the scenario.
Yes. I made real points pertaining to politics during the discussion. I impulsively used the word once, almost like when we use the word 'fucking' in a sentence, and intentionally a second time when asking why we needed to make a big deal and derail from the discussion.
When I used niggardly, I was intentionally trying to annoy Darksidesix, which I do on the regular, and generally we both get a kick out of it. Its not excusable, but that was my intent at the time.
I do not believe that the general behavior is acceptable in the community and in general the atitude shouldn't be used. The users in the channel weren't new, it was a barracks channel, and I did not at the time believe that speaking without thinking was going to spark a riot. In hindsight I misjudged.
I feel like the discussion that happened was enough, when you entered the channel, it was already nearing the end. You came in angry because you had to deal with shit that you shouldn't have to. From my perspective, you didn't have to be bothered, as there was already a regular there that could of banned me or taken care of the situation, I believe that the derailing of the initial conversation was unnecessary, and it should have been a simple 'don't say it again 2 minute warning.
I don't believe that Donors or Regulars should be exempted from rules, I support the charter as it is written, and have no intent on changing the rules at this time. Minors should not be exempted. You should not allow guests to act in this manner. People that have played in the past should not act in this manner.
I misjudged the situation by being too comfortable with the people I was having a discussion with.
I apologize for my actions, I did not intent to offend anyone in any way, it was unintentional racism, and it was taken harshly. My actions are not excusable, I can only ask for the forgiveness of my actions and would hope to move from this. I want to apologize to all of those that had to be part of this, and had to step in.
