All this of course would never happen because Blizz would be at risk of losing a large portion of their player base but I'd bet my account that you'd seem a major drop in people doing stupid crap and being purposely douchebagy if you handed out perma bans for everything.
    Actually even I think that is taking it too far - but if they consistently banned people for 24 hours for bad behaviour I would be pretty sure they would get the message.

    Lack of proper intelligence and manners is will get you banned. Enjoy your 48 hours of torment.

    Americans* Not wow players sadly. The amount of thin skinned soccer mom types are pretty abundant where I live, and the neighboring towns, and most of the people on wow, are you're "Average" person as well. Most people just cry over anything that rubs them the wrong way, or that they don't understand.

    Ignorance and Thin skin runs rampart in this country sadly.

    I feel you.

    Same thing happened to me. Well, not exactly same, but me and my friend were fooling around in trade calling eachother things.

    We both got banned, though it was lifted cause we both confirmed that we're friends and that we were joking.

    The person who reported me was probably one of those little children that find it fun to report people afk in battlegrounds while thier in the graveyard waiting for a ressurect.

    I smell troll, or you're just not telling the truth about the context of your ban.

    The likelihood of someone combining "gay" in it's original form with "bro" isn't very high.

    The only other thing I did was /kiss to my friend when I saw her in stormwind...

    That was shortly before the server restart and that was when I went to bed..

    I actually received a 72 hour ban once for swearing in trade, and I sent an e-mail back asking about the language filter. The response was basically this:

    "The mature language filter exists to protect people from those who choose to break the ToS, not as a license to do so for those that wish to use profanity in-game."

    It doesn't matter how you intended it, it only matters how another person perceives it. And you people really need to get something through your heads.

    YOU CANNOT DICTATE TONE THROUGH TYPED LANGUAGE.

    Just because you read it and mean it as "I'm asking if the dude is happy" doesn't mean every person reading it that way is going to see it as such. When you speak something verbally, pitch and tone and context all come out much clearer and the listener can tell your mood and intent easier. Typed language has none of these things except for how the person reads it.

    I'm not going to lie, if I had read what you had typed I would have just thought of you as one of those internet memes who likes gay bashing, too. I wouldn't have reported you for it, but someone else took that step. It was within their right to do so, and you clearly violated the rules of the ToUA. Take your punishment like a man and learn from it rather than blaming everyone else for your mistakes.

    I pity people who have gotten so insensate to disrespect and abuse from repetition that they have elevated being jaded to a virtue.

    Category of Violation: Sexual Orientation Harassment
    Account Action: 48 Hour Suspension

    Greetings,

    We are writing to inform you that due to your language or behaviour we have, unfortunately, had to add a warning to your World of Warcraft account. It is with regret that we take this type of action; however, it is in the best interests of the World of Warcraft community as a whole and for the integrity of the game."

    I appealed to it and will hope for a interesting reply from blizzard.....
    Who cares what words meant years and years back? This is a contemporary game and words are understood in a contemporary way.

    "Say first, for Heav'n hides nothing from thy view
    Nor the deep Tract of Hell, say first what cause
    Mov'd our Grand Parents in that happy State,
    Favour'd of Heav'n so highly, to fall off [ 30 ]
    From thir Creator, and transgress his Will
    For one restraint, Lords of the World besides?
    Who first seduc'd them to that foul revolt?
    Th' infernal Serpent; he it was, whose guile
    Stird up with Envy and Revenge, deceiv'd [ 35 ]
    The Mother of Mankind, what time his Pride
    Had cast him out from Heav'n, with all his Host
    Of Rebel Angels, by whose aid aspiring
    To set himself in Glory above his Peers,
    He trusted to have equal'd the most High, [ 40 ]
    If he oppos'd; and with ambitious aim
    Against the Throne and Monarchy of God
    Rais'd impious War in Heav'n and Battel proud
    With vain attempt. Him the Almighty Power"

    Makes sense? We just don't talk like that anymore. John Milton did....

    So, in short: the internet.

    You are one of the most over zealous white knights I've ever seen. The internet doesn't need people like you around to ruin our fun.
