First of all, this is not an appeal, this is not an attack on any person(s) on monolith. This is simply a discussion regarding the definition of "Threat" and misuse of the word.


Legally, I did not threaten Austin. Simply stating that you hope someone dies is not considered a threat under any circumstance.
Clearly, there has to be some sort of bias for someone to ACTUALLY believe that I had actually threatened Austin in this clip.
Sure, what I said may be considered rude or unfaithful to certain parties under certain circumstances, but a bit of hurt feelings and a chip on their shoulder does not translate into threats. It's quite concerning that respected member(s) of staff do not fully understand what a threat entails.

"I will _ you" is a threat
"I'm gonna _ you if you dont _" is a threat

"I hope you _" Is NOT a threat.
"It'd be a lot cooler if you _" is NOT a threat

Staff Members on Monolith deserve to be better educated on topics such as "IRL threats" so that they may better deal/resolve arbitrary quarrels such as these.
Thanks!

Either way it’s still un acceptable behavior you shouldn’t be saying such things.

You said and I quote "You are a genuine c*cksucker and I hope you die IRL." the fact that you A: Don't apologize for this behavior. B: Defend it, and C: Argue it's "legally not a threat" is... Ridiculous? Absurd? Disconnected from baseline reality? I don't know what the right word or words for it is, but you're so caught up in the specifics of the word threat and being right about it "not being a threat" you glance over the fact that you wished death upon another human being over a Gerald's Modification Roleplaying Server. If you're that miffed about the technicality I'm sure we can unban and reban for the reason "Breaking Community Guidelines".

Threats should be avoided generally (whether IC or OOC), we don't need such hate in our lives especially during these times <3
