Request for unban.

Postby MacClatchy » May 4th, 2017, 10:33 pm

Hello,
This evening i was banned for having the squad name Langemarck. Someone reported this to one of the admins and that admin then banned me without any warning or a kick. I am aware that there was a Flemish SS division called SS Langemarck and the squad name indeed referred to that unit, however i did not think and still don't think this violates the "No racism/National Socialist ideology, no flaming, insulting." rule as the SS Langemarck Division was simply a Flemish volunteer unit who was created to help Germany fight the Communist Soviet Union which was an equally bad ideology as Nazism. The SS Langemarck was not a political organisation. If this squad name offends people, which it appears to do i am prepared not to use it anymore but i am really convinced this does not offend the previously mentioned rule. I would like to know whether i can still use this name yes or no and i request my ban to be lifted. I am sorry if this offends people and if i cannot use the name anymore i wont.

I cant take this serious anymore...

Plz call your squads Bunny, Whoopy, Flower, Sunshine, Beer etc etc

Imagine yourself being a member of a club, a pingpong club, a pingpong club in Germany called SV Hupsakee and one day you have the brilliant idea to rename that club into SS Langemarck. What will happen then with you?

Comparing this to ping pong is absolutely ridiculous. I was playing a WW2 game on the side of Germany, the Langemarck squad name fits perfectly in that context. Why is it alright for someone to name a squad Stalin, Red Army or anything referring to Communism but you when you name a squad to something referring in the slightest way to Nazism you are the embodiment of the devil himself ? Is it simply because Communism won and Nazism lost ? are the millions of people who died at the hands of Communism really more worthless than those who died because of Nazism ? Why is this double standard constantly being applied and wildly accepted by today's society ?
But all of this doesn't even matter. I was prepared to disband my squad if i was asked to, which i never was.
I wasn't warned or kicked which is what normally should happen before a ban. If you want to accuse me of being a Nazi or National Socialist i suggest you may first look at my stats and see how many playtime i have with Fascist factions compared to Allied factions. I come on this forum to apologise for the misunderstanding and to have a proper debate about this yet all i get is a reply about ping pong.

the point isnt who has won or lost the war - thats nazi rhetoric ...
the point is, what the devils have done. stalin has so much do terrible things, nearly, but not enough to be on the same step like adolf and his whole regime and in ur case, Langemarck is a Political myth, which is the transfiguration of a lost military confrontation(WWI) in the German Reich.
glorifications in this way arent tolerated on this server !
but the ban is a little bit hard for this (without kick) so i think - the headadmins have to decide ...

I'm all for discussion and debate, but there is a clear and strictly enforced rule on this server; No racism/ National Socialist Ideology. Please don't argue the political motivations behind it, it is a no-tolerance policy that needs to be accepted if you're going to play on the server.

^ this is all that matters. The answer is no. Please don't use it again. The head admins have to decide to remove the ban.

That's okay with me, i just thought this didn't violate the no National Socialism ideology rule. If the admins think it does then its their right to think that and take appropriated action. All i'm saying is that i wasn't even warned, some simply reported this and a minute or 2 later i was just simply banned without an admin warning me or telling i had to remove it. If i was told to remove the name i would have just locked the squad, kicked everyone inside the squad and then left it so the name was removed. could have still kicked me after that to send a message if you wanted. But just ban me without even a warning was over the top. That's why i ask you again to remove the ban.

if you think us admins are a joke maybe the ban should be put back in place?
