Worthy of noting that this username was probably chosen in order to create provocations.

Thank you for your time :)

I saw the username earlier, but I'm aware that phrase has significant religious meaning and so gave the account the benefit of the doubt. It does appear now that this account was intended for 'memeing', which in this case is implied racism.

The account has been banned. I shall be investigating who made the account, as it is clear to me that it's someone's alt.

Crap. Sorry guys about that. I did it, as Nexus said for "memeing". I had no idea it would anger so many people. The AllahuAckbar account was a really, really bad idea. I didn't mean for it to be Racist towards all muslims, but just to meme terrorists.

Sorry again. I swear i'll be more sensitive with what I meme.

And how was it reasonable to "create an alt account to meme terrorists"?
It is not funny and such memes are definitely not acceptable in PL. You said in your appeal that you'll read the rules and abide by them.

Do you not understand that this is supposed to be a game where target audience is mainly children?

Um, I have a question : Shouldn't the username itself have fallen into breach of rule 1.5 concerning religious matters in usernames? Because in such cases, even if the owner of username doesn't do anything, it is possible that a part of community targets him/her because of the username, including jokes, hate, double meaning statements, etc. which can definitely turn bad.

You are correct. At the time of my first notice of the account, I wasn't in a position to do anything about it, hence nothing done until later.

You are right. Did you see the part where I said it was a really bad idea? And again, I wasn't trying to be racist(like the title of the report suggest I was), and I didn't know memeing terrorists would upset so many people. Sorry again.

Bro, in general, you should have never made that acc, you knew something may have happened truly, you should suffer the consequences for the wrong actions you made, like really what was the purpose of doing this? You offended people and you knew something was probs gonna happen, it's a pretty messed up thing you did :/ :-l

Yeah Ik. I originally made it as an alt that wasn't meant to be used. Anyways, I wasn't expecting anyone to get worked up over it. Im not saying it wasn't bad and I should suffer consequences, but im just trying to tell ya this wasn't meant to be offensive at all. As for why I did it? I was trying to make a meme of the well known terrorist phrase as a funny joke, not be racist.
