So I got banned for a while. Shit happens. I'm normally a pretty mellow guy, and I try to avoid being a snarky sarcastic internet-thug, avoiding all the pecking order bandwagons and all that. Sometimes, though, my inner jerk takes over. Especially when I think of something witty which just is too good not to post.

Anyway, when I read I got banned for "Insulted other member(s), abusive language, flaming", I figured it was one of those posts that got me those last 5 infraction points. Imagine the sheer levels of WTF generated when I discovered it was because of this post:

No, it actually isn't that cool. Dutch accents are terrible.

Sometimes I wish I were French. The French sound sexy. The Dutch sound like a bunch of drunkards speaking Klingon with a mouth full of broken glass.
Really? Saturn? That's worth five infraction points? For someone in the cool kids club, that's not very cool.


Strangely yours,

    An accent is a stereotype. It was a thread in a social group of friends, so really don't see how it is 'flamebait'. Furthermore, it's not like I'm just talking out of my ass, I'm Dutch myself.

    I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed this... but then I knew that either Leet or DCM would pick up on it.

    Meh, nevermind the whole ban. What happened, happened. I'm just kinda annoyed that Saturn went all banhappy in a social group over that. I must've pissed him off or something. Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut and go back to lurking. :/
