Yes, people that feed, use racial slurs, AFK, disconnect from the game in anger, harass/insult/hold ill feelings towards people with disabilities, gender orientations, and any other obscurity need to be banned.
However, being one of the many players who don't feel that their ban is justified, (50% of the posts in this forum give or take) There is obviously something wrong with the system, and that is that this is a Teen (13+) game, where chat is available to the enemy team. Now, why does Riot allow for communication between two teams playing against eachother if someone can be banned for calling someone a noob. (Verbal Harassment hurr durr).
This is the internet, and although white knights want to believe that they're justified in punishing players for using insults like "stop overextending noob.", or "call mia next time idiot." They simply are not, many times the players using these phrases are the ones contributing most to the game, buying skins and boosts and supporting Riot's new content.
That being said, I do not believe spending money on the game gives one a free pass to LOL I TROLL U U MAD BRO? HAHA U NOOB LOL WHY R U SO BAD? But knowing that this is the internet, and that we are playing a game for teens. How can you ban players for 3+ days for repeated minor insults like noob? or Idiot? Because someone is sensitive or feels that they're contributing in their ignorance by getting rid of competetive players who's vocabulary mirrors their higher level of skill, to an extent.
The Tribunal has just about killed this game for me, I've been banned twice, the first time for what is noted as intentional feeding. Which I have not EVER done before, meaning that players are smashing the punish button on the Tribunal page for false reports from this game's fragile playerbase.
That is all, I hope that Riot sees this thread and takes some consideration into their system.
There's a 3rd though, the ones zealously white knighting the system don't forget them.
You say (later) that you have contributed to the potential banning of one or more intentional feeder and racist from our fair game. Tell me this, are most of the "verbal abuse" cases you come across really that tame? I'm not going to punish someone for the occasional idiot or noob (though I still think there are alternative ways of expressing yourself), but what I usually see is "you stupid f***ing noob. Why can't you learn to play the game you f***ing idiot. /all CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IDIOT YI?" or something of the like. That is far more common than a noob or idiot a few times a game.
There is a difference between an occasional insult and a tirade of browbeating. The forum should be pardoned the latter punished in my opinion. The fact of whether he was doing well or not in the game makes no difference to me.

Haha, just thought about that. It would make some people stop using the tribunal completely. Imagine if you had to write a minimum 20 words to submit a review, so many players would be too lazy to do that.
This is a terrible idea. EIther 1 Riot doesn't do that and I can write "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" or copy/paste some sentence from a random post or Riot does read it and you've just added some thousand+ probably (maybe more maybe less) sets of 20 words they have to read for every account they look at. This will only cause more work for Riot if implemented correctly and if not doesn't solve anything.
