i have always said “welcome to hell” when people joined. nothing has changed. i was never told not to do that. how does that warrant a ban? second, i made a stupid “its not illegal if you dont get caught” joke. those have never been against the rules. third, i dont see what me being an anarchist has to do with anything.
Edit: ban dispute 4.0: the final dispute
A lot of people have messaged me after my ban, giving me various lectures on what i did wrong or why i was a brat or whatever but its BobsYourUncle’s lecture that really hit home. I came back after a ban, I was under extra scrutiny because of that, and I did not make any changes to my behaviour. Then, I realized something. I have always been this way. I have always been “annoying” and “bratty”. And yet, I managed to stay here 5 years before being banned. Why is that? The community has changed. Most of the people who like me for who I am have left, people who dont like me have joined, and the staff team has changed. I did not realize this at first, so I did not make a change to my behavior to match the new community. Now I realize that I need to do that. (EDIT: this is MY fault. I’m not trying to blame it on the community)
Now, I am not asking to get off scott free. We all know that is not gonna happen. But, since my misbehavior was only in chat, I believe it would be fair to unban me and give me a server wide mute. Maybe in a few months we can talk about taking off the mute, but for now, I think this would be fair. Tallcraft is really important to me. I love to read, but I really struggle to focus on books. With tallcraft, I can play minecraft while i listen to an audiobook and then i stay focused. Without tallcraft, I cant focus on minecraft. ADHD sucks man. I really need this. I’m really sorry for being annoying, its not gonna happen again.
