Enforcement Action Taken
Description of the incident:
My name was Bubba Goofus and a staff member wanted me to change it, while I was adamant about changing it I tought of another name I used to play as “Gay Johnson”. While I know Gay sounds like a silly name but it actually is a real life name and several sources for this, also the reason they wanted to change my name Bubba Goofus was because that its not a real name and no people are named by it, so I assumed that people have the first name Gay I could use it. The staff member told me that the name Gay Johnson was not against the rules but they were against it cause I would be made fun of and in return they’ll have to punish those people making fun of me. While I am doubtful if I were allowed to change my name to Gay Johnson those people making fun of me would have been punished. They made it sound like I could have the name Gay Johnson they just wouldnt like it. But the staff members demeanor changed and outright told me I cant have the name Gay Johnson, when I asked why I got no solid answer just because I said so’s. While I fully understand I must follow staff members commands, still I do not see why this name would warrant a ban and me not being allowed to use it. To add I needed to ask the staff member several times if the name was against the rules( they said no), if i was allowed to have it (no real answer until the end), will i be punished( yes). To me it seems like the staff member just didn’t like the name and wanted me to change it, and expected me to change it but when I refused cause its a real name, they banned me. To add, them saying that it will cause problems made it seem like I was allowed to have the name, but it seems to me over time they got a little more angry and decided to ban me. Now the note doesnt mention them saying the name is not against the rules(I highlighted it in pictures), I wasn’t attempting to be hostile and in my opinion I wasnt hostile and was actively trying not to be hostile only towards the end when I said it seems like they just dont like being talked back to can I percieve this as mildly hostile. The staff member seemed to refuse to really explain why the name isnt allowed and I percieve that as they truly know I can have the name but they dont like it and want me to change it, and when I refuse, they banned me for talking back, this is what I percieve it as.
edit: theres a guy with a nickname momfucker but i cant have gay as a first name?
I think these should be looked at and read if you want to fully grasp the situation that occured since I am not a very good writer.
