    What was your type of punishment?
    Gag

    What is your SteamID?
    http://steamcommunity.com/id/Eimix/

    Who has punished you?
    Wanka

    Why were you punished?
    I said a Racist Joke without knowing that it's a gaggable offense.

    Why should we revoke your punishment?
    Well, i really didn't know that i can get gagged for that. I know, i know i have to read the general rules. But i didn't even have in mind that you can actually get gagged for that. I think everybody even if they don't deserve, they should get a second chance. There was also a person that mentioned a joke that aswell mentions ''Black people''. I just can't remember his name, not sure if he even got gagged for that either.

    There's a huge gap between someone saying "black people" and making a racist joke. Although both are discouraged to be used, the latter has a higher possibility of conflict and nobody wants that.

    And you should understand that in the first place, saying something racist is a no-go. Even if it's a joke. (Although, you really should have read the rules. But you got free time now, so you can go read the rules), it's common sense IMO.

    @MarkSatire@MarkSatire I've already readed the rules, but like I didn't mean to show that racism. It was only a joke all though. I'd understand if I called somebody an N word. But I didn't.

    That most likely was a reference to those saying the N-word on the server without receiving any punishments, nobody cares if you say black people without context.

    Not knowing the rules does not allow you to ignore them.

    Against the rules.

    Other people doing things doesn't mean that its ok for you. Mob mentality is not the best defense.

    No point for others to jump in on this appeal, wait for @Wanka@Wanka to be available.

    I added Wanka and wrote to him through steam, he told me to appeal this GAG punishment and he said ''Admins will discuss'' or what was it. But he said to appeal it so I did.

    I told you that I wouldn't appeal the gag because in jest or not, it was still racist. You then admitted to having never read the rules (I have no screenshots of this in Steam chat because I didn't think you would actually appeal).
    Declined.
