    - Name of your Banned Steam Account?: - Juno
    - Steam ID - http://steamcommunity.com/id/ElizabethChicken/
    - Date and Time of the Ban 15/07/20`7 22:00
    - Reason/Explanation of the Ban I was banned for a count of racism, the racism/racist comment being "Ching chang, wing wang." I was then informed the comment was a "bit racist :/" and then told the server had strict rules against racism, I was then banned for 1 day for this, I then checked the Flux.tf rules thread and found that there was no rule against racism, never mind a strict rule on it. My appeal is here due to my account being banned for breaking a rule that does not exist on this server/network.

    I personally don't have a strict rule on racism, my view is "It's the internet, get over yourself" however others may not tolerate it as much.
    I would say that instantly banning for this, without warning, is rather unfair.

    That's pathetic. Giving a warning to a racist? So that means we have to give a warning to aimbotters too (because it won't be "fair" for them if we permantly ban them) if we are applying to what you just said, Flux. Alright maybe I was a little bit strict with the ban because my race was involved. Also, we do have a rule about how disrespecting players and staff is not allowed and racism falls in that category.

    Your ban has already expired.

    I apologize for getting involved, but I was on the server as well at this time and a warning was given. Multiple people were doing this, not just Juno, but once Mr. had said something about it, most of it had stopped, except for Juno's comment. Although some worse comments were made than this by other people, the comments from everyone else had stopped, this probably was the reason only Juno was banned. But again, the ban is over, so this conversation is pretty much dead anyway.

    I understand that this is already over, but I wanted to add something real quick. You have a point here, but we do have a rule on the servers to be nice/don't insult others. Racism can fall under that category. When people are getting offended, you need to shut the offender up.

    There are no rules against racism but there are rules against being rude to other players. Now if you just said this out of context then it shouldn't be a real concern but if you did say it to someone then that's a problem
