Two of my guild-mates bumped into each other in-game, and one made a jokey comment in guild chat about the others boobs, and they started to do the /dance emote. Next thing we know she finds herself with a permaban! I wouldn't even see 'boob' as a swear word, let alone one that warranted a permanent ban. Nobody would have reported this guild chat so I have no idea why this extreme action has been taken!
What do you think? Is 'boob' that offensive - especially in gchat! - to warrant a perma-ban without the player ever having been given any kind of warnings for any kind of misbehaviour in the past?
Has anybody else experienced this kind of over-enthusiastic banning for 'swearing' recently?
Anet allows botters to run 10 toons on the same spot day-in-day-out, despite them being reported by multiple players, yet perma-bans someone for a word that's questionably even offensive in guild chat!? This seems hugely flawed to me and I'm really disappointed.
I'm all for bans for people who are repeatedly abusive and offensive, especially in /map, but it should start with a warning and move on to increasing length bans (unless it's majorly extreme obviously.)
I'd be interested to hear if anybody has had a similar experience recently? I know that Anet was reportedly very heavy with the bans straight after launch, but now...?
