I wonder how BillRyan continues to avoid the martingale in his suspensions? He did get 7 days on his last recent one. Shouldn't this one be 30 days?

I'll let the use of the s-word be exempt from the Martingale this time, but it certainly doesn't reset it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Life has already martingaled him, why pile on here?

Dear Wizard,
I have a request.

I don’t protest my suspension. I used a forbidden word.
But I formally resent the motive you wrote down in the suspension list.
« Hate speech »!!

Me? Guilty of hate?
Two of my best friends are gay. I even lived several months with one and his boyfriend. They had a rainbow flag on the wall. It is they whom I heard use the term « f** flag » as an alliterative gimmick. Sometimes it was even « f*** flag » !!
Conceded, we are much more at ease with foul words in Europe. No fuss, nobody gives a dime. Words are just that, words.

But fundamentally, NO HATE ! It’s a joke, it’s poetry, it’s bad taste, it’s forbidden in America or in Vegas or on your site, but it - is - not - hate - speech in this context, and certainly not coming from me ! ! !

So, if you please, my request is that you change the official motive of my suspension. Label it ‘profanity’ or ‘impropriety’ or ‘offending’ — don’t libel it ‘hate’.

Thank you.

Yes, you are the exception to everything. You sure know how to play that foreign card. Everything is different across the ocean, I guess.

MaxPen, you know I hate you, and I have a guess that I am not an exception there.
😁 Come have a look at how things go here. This is no socialist hellhole. When you do, give me a sign and I’ll gladly accommodate you. I have plenty of spare rooms.
Chuss.

First, f*g is indeed an offensive word in the US. When its me enforcing the rules, I have no other point of view to go by.

Second, just because people within a group may use a particular word, doesn't make it acceptable for those outside the group to use it. Blacks sometimes call each other the N-word, but if anyone else called them that, I assure you it would be taken as fighting words. It gets more involved whether or not an "r" is at the end, but I won't get into that.

However, I believe that your intent was not hate speech, after reading this post. I'll change the reason for the suspension, but will footnote the change.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm heading to Spain in October. Was in Italy in December. I get around enough to see what's what. I'm adept at detecting BS on an international level. I don't pretend like I'm from Mars everytime I get out of line.

Thank you.

(I understand your position. I was not discussing it, just explaining how bad behavior happened.)

Some of my best friends are black. Well, actually, I only have one black friend left. He's in prison. I've known him since we were teens. He's a good guy. It's his brother I worry about. He's in prison too. Something like 80 years for trying to kill his girlfriend by setting her on fire. I knew him when we were teens also, though he was a few years older. Seemed like a nice guy.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.
