Riot makes no sense with rules.
Let's look at all the /taunts that the champions do. Do any of them involve sexual or racial slurs? No. Do they use offensive words? Not as far as it goes for me, they don't. So making this comparison from the champion /taunts and trash talking is nowhere near close. How is trash talking on the same level as a /taunt? They don't unless you use /taunts as a way to annoy and be a jerk to others
The great thing about this is now I'm listening to all the taunts in the game and picking out my favorite ones.
When you can come up with a clean way to jab at another player and get banned for it, then come back and cry about your spilt milk. You're allowed to do general trash talking, but once you direct it upon a person or do it obscenely to a point where it causes disruption to the game, i.e. being a jerk, that's where you will get banned for your actions.
