Made language mistake got autobanned

Recommended Posts

I made a pun about wood and used a common slang that was deemed racist.
There was no racism to speak of, none of my actions were race based nor any of my sentiments.
The pun i made was: Wish a niggah wood? Just 20 scrap at O25.
Alas i see now that in the eyes of the AI chat moderator there is no acceptable use of niggah, in jest or otherwise.
Please appeal my ban ASAP and i shall refrain from using any such language in the future.
All advertising puns will be above the belt and i will endeavor to avoid such low brow comedy.
Xoxo Ttyl ❤️ P.S buy my wood.

I feel terrible, i should add that i will never use such terms on a public forum again. I often make jokes ABOUT racism to highlight indifference and the absurdities that come with it but i myself am not racist in the least, in fact i try my best to fight racism and any race based sentiments any chance i get.
I think race has no bearing on ability, choice or opportunity and should not be highlighted as such. Racism is not only pointless but incredibly stupid.
I understand that language means something different for each individual and i have in some circles definitely crossed a line, for a lot of people there is no difference between the er pronunciation and the ah pronunciation. A public forum is not the place for me to assert this difference, well intentioned or not.
I am very sorry for this, I admit my wrong doing and will NEVER do it again.
Please get back to me.

Thank you for appealing. 

With the current cancel culture in the world, racism in all aspects of society is being closely scrutinized.  While we do understand that it still heavily permeates music, comedy, movies, and other media, it is something we do not feel is appropriate to have in our servers.

Words such as what you used, are not welcome in any context. 

Here are resources that you can explore to learn more:

That being said, you will get a second chance. Just one.
The ban will be lifted once 72 hours have passed, but it will remain on your record.  There will be no additional chances as this post should encourage you to change how you speak in our servers and to abide by the rules.

Take a few minutes before rejoining, and refresh yourself on the rules to avoid any chance of breaking them. If you are unclear on any of them, or aren't sure what is permitted, reach out to the staff and we'll be happy to clarify them for you.

● No raiding, griefing or looting of any kind.
● No mic or chat spam, player disrespect, politics, racism or harassment.
● No camping loot rooms, monuments or any highly concentrated areas.
● You may build in caves but you must ensure safe passage for other players.
● No blocking water ways, building around monuments or large areas of unused land.

(Please read the splash page as well, as each server type has slight variations regarding specific features of those servers.)

Welcome back. 
(Please bear in mind, this is a one-time ban reversal. No further rule infractions of this nature can happen. Thank you!)
