This forms post is long overdue. Recently there have been a number of problems with the more recent moderators. I feel that they are undertrained, and do not know how to handle chat. Many of them are misinformed on the difference between a formal civilized conversation and a chat that is causing problems. Today when I joined the server there were a group of players talking about Pride Week and the LGBTQ Community. A different group of players came online and start to throw out hate speech and talk about how Queer persons should be oppressed. I strongly disagree with this and so dis a few other players who were on at the time. Slowly it turned into a heated argument with words like Dyke, Retard and Homo being thrown around. This is all happening while 5 Moderators were online. I chose to @Moderator Rank on discord and tell them that they should pay more attention to chat and not constantly be afk. About 2 out of the 5 mods started to defuse the conversation in a civilized manner while the other 3 chose to yell at random players who have done nothing wrong. After the conversation is lightened a bit chat becomes somewhat normal and players go back to their activities and conversations. The same people who started to attack and bash on Pride Week start again. I chose to state my opinion about how the mods are blatantly ignoring the fact that chat has become quite toxic and that they should pay attention more. This is when multiple players agree with me and Addeve logs on. I ask said admin why these problem players are not being muted after having their first warning, and they tell me that they are waiting to see if a moderator would do anything. Surprise Surprise nothing happens and chat continues. I take this time to ask why is it that good civilized conversations are constantly muted and shut down when it is a select handful of people that cause a fuss or create an argument. Many times when there are calmer moderators online we can have a civilized conversation about occurring events or conversations about meaningful things. The admin tells me "Go ask Apple". Later on, a friend of mine joins the server and proceeds to joke around with me. While talking Bavtato, Relafount and AnarchicMuse proceed to talk about how that this was the last straw and that I am being muted for "Being a dick". What I don't understand is why I was being muted for talking to a friend. I attempt to explain to the mods that this player was a friend of mine that they had also known. They say that they knew who was the player was and to bad. I understand that I was being very aggressive towards these mods beforehand time, but there is no excuse to mute a player for talking and joking with a friend.
