    Hello everyone.
    I had a run-in with an admin called Geology.

    As I like to do, I love to invite new players into my team to help them out and also so I can learn foreign language phrases. This particular Russian player, "Richard" has a picture of a rooster so I thought of a funny team name.

    I named the team "Putin's Cock" because as many of you know, in English "cock" is another word for "Rooster", so this made a bad pun of a team name. But fair enough -- I knew I was pushing it with this name.

    Admin Geology did not care to even talk to me. He warmed me officially through a prompt in-game. So I changed my team name to just represent my friend's rooster. I renamed the team to "Putin's Rooster" and without further warning or any dialogue at all I get kicked.

    Admin says the name was offensive even as there are people in-game with name "Afroamerican" in team " B l A C K". So why is Rooster being taken out of context by an admin even when I am clearly referring to my teammate with an actual picture of a rooster on his profile? I am not saying this other team name was so offensive that it had to be kicked, but I am asking why is my team name being taking out of context but theirs isn't?

    Other team with questionable name.
    My teammate with rooster profile picture.
    Proof of us in the same team.

    So am I crazy or this is really tone deaf? Had minimal effort been put into trying to clarify the situation, the name of the team could have been explained to the admin -- or changed completely. But not a single word was exchanged between this admin and I before he kicked me.

    Hello, @normal name

    Although I found some humor in the team name "Putin's Cock" it was undeniably vulgar and obviously against the rules. Our staff was right for punishing you with that in mind. Although a further punishment was unnecessary, it was ultimately up to that staff to deem you worthy of punishment. This does not mean that I won't be talking to @Gelogy about when to continue punishing users after the first warn.

    I apologize for the inconvenience, and will make sure this does not happen again.
