Blocking him for a whole week is a bit steep.. he clearly got overly salty but he may never learn kindness if we ban hammer his his face
You would be right if this was an isolated incident. However, look at this chain of events with some backlog:
- On Saturday morning, i was speccing the teams room and noticed a few people being rather not nice
, dark_gf included. I proceeded to kindly ask everyone to be nice, and also gave dark_gf a few tips on how to express his frustrations without being overtly toxic.
- Later on Saturday, dark_gf got a report for verbal abuse. So, asking kindly didn't work! Since the transgression was fairly minor, a rather meek punishment of a 24 hour mute was applied: dark_gf could still play the game, but with his ability to insult others taken away.
- Within 2 hours of his mute running out on Sunday, this thread emerged (including some unreported instances of verbal abuse, e.g. calling people idiots).
didnt' work either - the week ban is merely the next step.
