It doesnt matter what i want and what i've voted for. Rules with the most votes = rules that apply

This is really the bottom line, and the only reason I reversed one (1) warning. It's so obvious, I don't understand how there can be 1930249 pages of arguing about it. If a warning is given for something that isn't against the rules, that's incorrect. If the the warner refuses to acknowledge this fact, then that's intellectual dishonesty. It's no secret that most people here don't like claw, so it's warning him without justification just because you don't like the guy that's biased, not the other way around. I have no problem warning him if he ever deserves it, he's just been smart enough not to so far.

And, he's also right about "Polack":

Quote
However, the English loanword "Polack" is considered an ethnic slur in the United States and the United Kingdom, and therefore is considered insulting in nearly all modern usages.

1.Slang: Disparaging and Offensive (Random House Unabridged Dictionary)
2.Offensive Slang used as a disparaging term for a person of Polish birth or descent (The American Heritage Dictionary)

Seems legit to me. If anyone thinks that "nigger" deserves a warning and "polack" does not, well, I guess they're just sanctimonious hypocrites. :P

Lmao, are you going to go overturn the ban Lightbringer put in too, because stealing accounts isn't against the rules?

where is the butthurt coming from, nobody got warned AFAIK (duno if chester got his 10%), nobodys warning got revoked. people are simply aware now that p*lack is a racist phrase and shouldnt be used, at least not when racism is punished.

I provided the arguments in the original post, mouse added a different source, its all clear now.

Are you nerds disagreeing with us? where are the sources?

Hey there, as we all noticed, one little n*gger can start a 5-page-long shitstorm along with insta warnings. Racism is now again forbidden with 8-7 votes, at least for now. So i would like to point out an incompetence when it comes to ethnic slurs punished by the admins. Lets take a look:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ethnic_slurs
Nigger / Niger / nig / nigor / nigra / nigre (Caribbean) / nigar / niggur / nigga / niggah / niggar / nigguh / niggress / nigette
    (International) Black. From the Spanish and Portuguese word negro, derived from the Latin niger.


However, theres this one too:
Polack
    (Primarily US) a Pole or a person of Polish or Slavic origin,[197] from the Polish endonym, Polak (see Name of Poland). Note: the proper Swedish demonym for Polish people is polack[198] and the Norwegian equivalent is polakk.[199]



Also the wikipedia tells us:
The noun Polack (/'po?l??k/ or /-lak/; also Pollack, Pollock, Polock), in the contemporary English language, is a derogatory reference to a person of Polish descent. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polack)

For context, le n*gger:
Nigger is a noun in the English language. [...] its usage had become unambiguously pejorative, a common ethnic slur usually directed at black people.

The wikipedia leaves no difference between n*ggers and p*lacks in terms of ethnic slurs. I think its time to protect little Poles, mods!

Inquiry: does one forfeit their right to report others for the use of pejoratives after having themselves been banned for the same reason?

Ref:
of course not. If this was the case, all the past-hackers that have ever been warned/banned (lance, g3mini, mage) would not be able to request SS etc. This is not the server policy.
