[Aaah]Hopper banned by Ribbed? Overeacting?

Postby SeanConnery » Wed Nov 21, 2007 6:44 pm

At approx 4:30 Hawaii time (6:30 Pacific time) Ribbed banned [Aaah]Hopper. Hop doesnt really get involved with the clan much and that is why Im making the post of him.
Here's the story: We were playing dod_colmar and Hop, ribbed, and I were all on the German team. We were down to the last bomb pack for the AA gun. Someone planted from the American team, we killed the guy and I saw someone crouch next to the defuse point. Figuring he was defusing I looked up at the Flag/Bomb indicator on the top left hand side only to see a limited time left with noone defusing. I then told the "guy" who at this point I didnt realize was a POW member a retard because he had just lost the match for us and didnt know how to press E and defuse the bomb.
Ribbed obviously didnt like being insulted so he responded saying that he tried to defuse the bomb, to which I responded with a perhaps illadvised quip. So basically I did make fun of him abit and he got mad.
I then accidently blew up Lonely Zoop with a rocket accidently, and Hopper said over team voice, "speaking of retard". So I guess Ribbed thought this was directed at him and proceded to Kick and Ban Hopper.
Ribbed then called Hop and I smartasses and told me to keep it up and I'd get banned myself.
So I insulted Ribbed and argued with him alittle. Hop makes a remark not even related to the situation and gets banned? He didnt do anything to deserve this and likes the server alot.
So I'm asking for you as a group to Unban [Aaah]Hopper and if it makes you feel any better ban me instead. Hopefully some of the regulars can weigh in and say that the rather small group of [Aaah] are a good group of guys and dont really deserve to be so mistreated.

Bullshit u lil liar. I tried to defuse the bomb. then u started in on me callin me down and insulting me, which I should have banned u for also. then yer lil buddy starts insulting me too..callin me a retard. That doesnt sit well with me, so he got what he deserved. I dont even know why I showed u mercy when u also called me down and insulted me...maybe there is a part of me thats telling me that hey..."he's a regular and should be given a chance." I dont take kindly to being insulted like that and the ban will stand.

Well I realize youre mad and think my buddy insulted you but thats not what happened. He called me a retard and you thought he was calling you challenged or whatever. If youre going to ban anyone it should be myself. He didnt do anything... But youre right. It is up to you. So whatever, its just a game.

There was a lot of confusion at that time when the AA gun was taken out.
Some of us just re-spawned and rushing to defuse the bomb/reinforce the
position. The enemy was still there, and as it happens many times, the
bomb didn't get defused in time. I agree that when someone is making
his/her best effort and see things going south, he/she tends to overreact.
I think thats what had happened today as well. Sometimes, it becomes a
part of the game. But once you realized that you have said bad things,
just apologize and move on.

I also think that Hopper's comment was not directed at RiBBed but I may
be wrong. Most of the times, I get so much into the game that I don't pay
attention to the ongoing conversation. Then, there is other noise around.
Anyways, we all are good players and team players. I am not trying to
preach or patronize, but would request to please get along guys.

In the end, what RiBBed decides would stand, but it's the "Thanksgiving".
Let's keep the spirit of the season.

Whats the console command for passing out turkey? Yah know youre right genie. When I think on it, I really didnt apologize for calling ribbed a retard and it obviously made him mad and offended.

So whatever your decision is Ribbed or even the whole PoW crew. Sorry, its just a game and I overeacted to losing. Thats all I got.

So I said I was done with the subject. Guess not...

Hop's been permanetly banned from pow for supposedly calling someone a retard? Even though he didnt call ribbed anything (the comment was directed at me). How is a single comment grounds for permanent ban? A kick or a 24 hour ban maybe.

I'd really like to hear from some of the Admins here. I would hope that I can expect more from such a great clan and server.

A permaban is not always permanent, it just means that it will have to be manually lifted. I'm sure a discussion about this will follow and a reasonable conclusion will be reached.

Doom will make the final call.

Yeah I realize that permabans are not "permanent" in the sense that they can be removed. Thanks guys, it was frustrating for myself not getting much of a response. Especially since I basically got Hopper banned for something that was very confusing. Hahaha.

It goes like this. Dont be disrespecting people in the server..especially clan members, whether they are admin or not. I didnt deserve to be insulted and called down like that..I dont take kindly to things like that. Gotta think before u speak out like that or there's a price to be paid. I'm a fairly decent guy, but when people do things like that to me I turn into an instant asshole. Be cool to me and I'll be cool to u, thats the bottom line. U apologized and thats cool...apology accepted. I'm sure yer buddy is sorry also...and I accept it also. If I could unban I would..you'll have to wait til someone can have him unbanned. I dont know his Steam id so post it and it should be taken care of sometime soon.

We lost our banned_user.cfg file when I was gone. A backup has been loaded and you should find yourself unbanned.

Hey. I've been making Sean post for me because he was already on the forums and I didn't feel like registering just to make one post. But I suppose since this is the only server I play on I might as well.

Anyway, you guys unbanned me and it was nice, but now I'm banned again. Not sure why, since I haven't been online. Probly a file that got screwed up.

Can you guys please unban me again? Steam login: g_hop

Thanks.
