It's okay to have *** with somebody. It's not okay to have *** with somebody without their consent.
See the difference? Context.
If you're PHYSICALLY harming someone that's a completely different story. He is using an emote in a game DESIGNED (by a dev consent, advertised and everything) to be spammed.
That's not even close to the same thing and you know it. He was causing no harm to anyone by spamming emotes. Mildly annoying as it may be, he was not actually HARMING anyone.
Player support or customer service tells you "just mute that guy" if you report them for harassment when they are legit harassing you. So why is it all of a sudden a huge deal when someone spams an emote, that it's no longer acceptable to mute said person? It takes the same amount of effort or less.
In one instance where someone is actually causing you emotional distress, it's perfectly acceptable to just say "just mute him and ignore him, it's no big deal!", but in another instance where someone is playing with in game emotes that do not hurt you in the slightest, suddenly that response is unacceptable.
The fact that you people don't grasp how stupid this ban is, and in fact SUPPORT it just baffles me.
