@knoturz Welcome. If that happens right after starting the game, are you sure you are not in the "bid" purchase phase?
@silverbullet This is not a matter of sensibility. It's an objective fact.
Most funny or vulgar (depending on sensibility) names are actually often based on perfectly acceptable items.
If one would take the principle of accepting anything that has at least one acceptable meaning, one would refuse hardly anything.
If you would, instead, start arguing that the worst possible meaning of the name "Hairy Pickle" is either not bad enough or uncommon enough to be ban-worthy, that may be a reasonable opinion, so you can ask for the name to be considered acceptable and wait for a decision about it (if it ever comes).
Meanwhile, you must follow whatever any single moderator says.
When looking at the world through such a lens literally anything could be construed to be sexually suggestive.
@dirtydugga i never banned you, i only entered a trollish vulgar name to our "banned name" list(after you left the lobby), another Mod gave you the ban as your name was already on the "banned name" list. thus it was a second strike on you, i do agree there was not enough communication, but it is hard to communicate when you are not in the lobby or in the forums.
i am not sure how that name logged back into the lobby, but it goes without saying, vulgar names will get banned.
@silverbullet This is not a matter of sensibility. It's an objective fact. My name was in reference to my passion for botany and because you have the mind of an adolescent I'm being punished. When looking at the world through such a lens literally anything could be construed to be sexually suggestive. I know, because I went to middle school! Though where is the line SilverBullet? If I logged in as TheHump, would you ban me in spite of it being in reference to the real supply route used by Allied WW2 pilots to resupply Chiang Kai-Shek’s Chinese Nationalist Forces? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hump
The point I'm making is that you should cease being so overzealous in the abuse of your mod power.
I have now noticed that my ban has been reversed and that I am able to log in. Before I couldn't log in at all, so I suppose thank you for that. What I will say however is that it's absolutely ridiculous that I was ever banned for 9 days in the first place. You should sincerely review your practices as a mod. Your purpose is to maintain a positive atmosphere conducive to comraderie and enjoying of the game. Presently you're an obstacle to many being able to do so. Furthermore, perhaps you should just adopt a live and let live life philosophy. You'll be happier, I promise.
@silverbullet i just saw you enter then leave the lobby as "DirtyDugga", so why not just use that name?
