Your appeal:

A marine was getting tackled trying to resist in the hive before getting nested and shouted “XIGGA” before he was capped.

I was spectating with the other ghosts in dChat and they started saying how he would be banned. At that point I said “You can say xigga”

The section of the forum rules on Racism and Bigotry state that:
“Usage of slurs IC/OOC on the server will result in a 7 day ban automatically.”
“Racism, the use of slurs and other targeting terms or phrases is strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated.”

As you would agree “Xigga” is not a racist slur, and the fact that I didn’t even use it in reference to anyone or anything and was merely referencing an instant in which someone else had said it shows bending of the rules to enforce in bad faith. I don’t think this situation was thoroughly looked into before judgement was made and an over-zealous verdict was hastily cast. Even if the administrative team disagrees and decides that saying “Xigga” is wrong, I think a message from the admins saying “No, you can’t say Xigga, if you do we will ban you” Would have been more appropriate than a week long ban, since I was, in fact, not the one USING the word.

From the looks of things you did in fact use a slur, whether or whether not you replace one letter of the word with an X doesn’t change that fact. We have a pretty strict no-tolerance policy on this so this ban seems perfectly legitimate to me I’m sorry to say.

This will be denied.
