I often post witty remarks and sometimes make jokes on the forum. I try my best to keep it clean and in good faith. I do know this is not gameplay and I do know this could cause me more issues but given the response from support I am left with little option other than to vent it here. I had a 2 week ban a while back which I thought was obsurd the moderator did not get the post or the context... I had another warning point for another inane reason and now this..... 

So apologies if this gets your goat

sometimes i wonder aswell if moderators moderate the right thing on forums, but yea certain mods dont like jokes much or dont understand them and see it as insult/racial remark for some reason unknown

Do you think it is a case of moderatos who just use google translate as thier ' linguistic skill'

Is there a permanent ban if you breach the one year ban by posting on another account? Can they even ban your game account from playing?

Not sure about the former but the latter is a no.

Personally I think a year ban is a bit harsh. On the other hand though it's not a very smart comment to make when you are at 2 warning points already.

I remember a friend of mine who had his SWG name ‘ Scottish Drunk’ hit with the bingo bat because a moderator had got excited and ‘thought’ he was being racist. He got it overturned by virtue of the fact that he was Glaswegian and was often drunk. English language nuances are a blessing and a curse for those unable to spot them

Yeah the mods have long tows and short fuses lately.
I got a warning point for something harmless aswell. First one in 7 years

Same here, got one for a single word which I can see (and even much worse versions of it) all around the forum being used excessively by a huge amount of people without any edits or warnings whatsoever. Strange criteria.

Well the tone of the post is that Russians are all vodka slugging drunks, which is the use of a pejorative stereotype. Certainly disrespectful and many will regard it as racist, since racism seems to cover anything that is even marginally upsetting nowadays. Different levels of casual racism are tolerated in different places. I guess you have to remember that this is an international forum, so best to stick with the idea that there is a zero tolerance approach.

Let me remind you another rule.
 

8. Don’t try to cheat the punishment system

If you have been banned, the moderation team can automatically ban all your alternate accounts on the forums.

If you do not agree with your sanction you can always appeal to our team leaders.
