Permanently Banned - Wehrmacht=WarCriminals
Date/Time of Ban: 23 June 2017 circa 23:50 GMT
Name you used when banned: Wehrmacht=WarCriminals
Admin who banned you: No idea
Why were you banned:
I presume by the defence of my username against right wing & german fanatics who seem to have an issue with my username over the chat and my subsequent response to them.
Why should you be unbanned:
I do not believe I should have been banned in the first place.
My response to people having an issue with my name has been to google and then pick up a history book, to then ignore them and continue playing the game.
If you believe that I have been engaging in political discussion on the chat then please look at the chat transcript where I have not answered or engaged with even the most vile bigoted filth being written via the chat.
If you believe that my name is provocative and should be changed then I would suggest you also ban all the people with SS and other Wehrmacht unit names as well as those glorifying the III Reich, since there was almost no wehrmacht unit without involvement in major warm crimes, millions of rapes etc. and the open glorification of these units (which is quite common place on your server) I find to be a sickening disgrace which should also not be allowed. Although I have never openly disapproved of this on the server or via chat (and this should also be the same for soviet troops although I have found no one glorifying them), I have never protested against anyone in chat with usernames such as SS Totenkopf or Grossdeutschland Div etc. but I appear to have my fans regarding my username.
If you believe my name must be changed on this server I invite you to educate yourself on what is fact and should not even be challenged or discussed, i.e. the myth that is the clean wehrmacht.
There are several references of books and studies that can be followed from these two articles.
If you believe my ban should be upheld, you should then also ban the fellow who was throwing the most appalling anti-semitic filth at me in random intervals (I am not Jewish but it is still irrelevant), most of which I did not reply to, I'm sure he did not get banned - I forget his name please see the transcript.
Should the ban be upheld I will be fairly disgusted that while open glorification and pride in an army that committed some of the most appalling filth known to a modern army in history is not only accepted, openly displayed and indulged in on your server, but that to signal sympathy for their victims - the millions of women raped and/or forced into sexual slavery not to mention the thousands of deliberate murders and pillaging to name a few would be so outlandish a thing to have as a username that it would result in instant banning.
People have no right to not be offended by my username if it dispels their myth of a criminal army, and I should have every right to use it as a username since it is based in fact and not fantasy, unlike those used by people pretending to be Wehrmacht units with pride.
At most I could agree to not engage in discussion with people on your server who have a problem with my username, I did my best to answer simply google + history book when such people attacked me. However if this is the case I should have been warned and not just banned in an instant and while someone was ranting anti-semitic filth at me I might add. Would people complain if my username was Stalin=Bad? Or Hitler=Murderer?
The only other thing I can think of for the ban is where a few minutes before I by mistake killed quite a few team mates over a bridge firing HE from a tank, they were in fact mixed with German infantry on the Lutremange map (the flags had just changed position) and I also hit an allied supply truck killing all inside which from my angle and with the infantry looked like an Axis opel truck, judging by my score about 6th on the leader board with around 40 points at the time one can see I am not and have never been a deliberate team killer.
The result of this ban dispute is really a reflection of you as a server as opposed to any infarction on my part.
