    i recieved a 24 hour chat ban for saying "sieg heil" to a german after he told me to go **** my mother.

    why did he not get a ban??????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????

    1) He might have gotten a ban.

    2) You might have a more extensive history of typing off.

    3) I'm guessing you broke more than one rule in that post (I don't speak German). Perhaps multiple infractions do the trick when it comes to getting bans.

    4) I might like cheesecake so much that we should change this thread to "PSO's Cheesecake Thread."

                      Simple!!!!
                      You were told to go **** your mother in English.
                      You replied sieg heil which is German.

On a small number of tables and in a small number of regional tournaments, chat may be allowed in a particular language and in English. These tables and tournaments will be clearly labeled. If you are not comfortable with non-English chat, please do not join these tables or tournaments.

                            'could hardly believe that you would ever swear on a table....you're so nice, and that's not sarcasm.

                            AND KRUNKSTAR, really.....you would swear? lol

                            I haven't been here long, but I know and feel the frustration of incredibly bad beats, magicial hands on the fingers of idiots. I try to plot revenge, posting my comments under notes as my red crayon wears down to a niblet. Better that then make myself suffer public flagellation. GL to you, see you on the top side.

                              Well, in this instance you actually would have been breaking the law if you were in Germany, as **** salutes, the use of Sieg heil or a heil ****** either written or spoken are in fact criminal acts and can be punisable with up to three years in prison, due to the impled anti-semetic nature of the greetings. Exception to the law include using the stance or the words in there original context for the purpose of teaching history or discussing the political climate of the time and the slightly more ambiguos usage that is "ironic and clearly critical of the ****** Greeting". Whilst you probably believed that you were being ironic, I would infact say that due to the fact that this was used in a heated debate is was actually cited as a term of offence.

                              I do accept ignorance of this law as an excuse in this case and I do not believe that your intent was in any way anti-semetic and I am sure that you were not accusing the man of genocide,

                              I hope you find this post to be informative and in no way abusive to yourself. With regards to his words with reference to your mother. I hope that he too was administered at least a 24 hour chat ban, and in this instance I am pretty sure he would have been.

                              Good luck
