I've been playing and checking the forums for maybe two months by now and I've seen people getting muted for calling someone simple insults like coward and others of the such.

And not to mention I've seen that guy spark from the fog incident get a three day mute for what many can pass as a simple stereotypical and slightly racist joke.

I would just like to ask why the punishment is so harsh and also what kind of words i need to avoid in order to not end up in their places.

Overall it’s up to the admin to punish/ warn ( which they should be warning/ continue to warn if it’s a repeated offense). If it continues the admin should issue a comm block appropriately, we at Panda strictly have a zero tolerance when it comes to racism and saying the n word for example once isn’t enough to warrant a comm block compared to repeated offense ( especially if they were warned).

Insulting is a little tricky as people can be tilted and insult or genuinely be toxic/ tilted. All cases are unique and it’s not appropriate to generalize, but similar to the first point if it’s repeated offense/ targeted at individual(s) it would be consider insulting. You don’t have to like everyone, but the common courtesy is to be respectful to everyone and they’ll have the same respect for you.

We have a stacking system of punishment so the punishment system isn’t harsh, it takes up to your 6th comm block to be permamuted. Especially repeatedly being muted/ gagged while being warned a lot shows a lot about someone who can’t follow and listen to warnings and being continually punished for it. Overall, just be respectful to each other in the server, avoid using the n word/ provoking language. You can also look at the rules primarily 2) Communication rules

2) Communication rules:

a) Offensive language
You may not use any offensive language, which includes insults; excessive raging; disrespecting admins or other players or provoking them; or any kind of discrimination. Racism is strictly forbidden.

Both the offensive language and offensive spray rules include pro-war exclamations or expressing a positive attitude towards terrorists, dictators or otherwise controversial figures. Keep that stuff out of the servers; it's a video game, not a place to express your controversial political viewpoints

IMO being racist/deliberately toxic should be treated differently than being provoked into insulting others.
Both should be punished ofc, however clearly it is unfair to treat these scenarios the same way. E.g. when someone insults another person and this person retaliates, admins should try and break up the fight, and not punish immediately. The person who got provoked may want to know why they can't fight back against someone who insulted them.
