Busco - ERP/Inappropriate Language

Ban reason: “Indef ban for ERP, talking about ‘anal lube’ multiple times”
Length of ban: Indefinite
Events leading to the ban: I asked the chemist for space lube but said anal lube instead because I thought people would think it was funny.
Reason the ban should be removed: I didn’t understand how serious and vast the rules are for ERP. I honestly didn’t think there was anything wrong with asking for anal lube, but now I do. I won’t say or do anything sexually-related now that I understand this. I feel the need to clarify that I wasn’t saying anything vulgar about what I would do with the ‘anal lube’ but simply asked for some. I know that’s wrong now, but the ban reason might imply to some that I was saying more about the stuff.

We have very strong rules on sexual content to keep the servers a place where everyone can enjoy the game.
I would suggest to brush up on the zero tolerance rules:
In saying that you seem to understand the gravity of it all and I will remove the ban.


To enable speedy review of all appeals, appeals that meet certain requirements may bypass the standard, often lengthy, review process. Our banning policy requires appeals which are denied using the speedy review process have this notice placed on them. Any of the following criteria typically make an appeal eligible for the speedy review process:

  • the ban length is less than or equal to 14 days,
  • the appeal is older than 7 days, or
  • the result of the appeal is obvious.

In some cases, the banning admin may process the appeal. The banning admin cannot process the appeal if:

  • the facts that led to the ban are disputed,
  • the appeal makes a claim that the admin who placed it was biased, or
  • the ban was not within the ban guidelines.

You may contact a head game admin if you believe this appeal was handled improperly, but should be aware that this will typically only result in a review of the processing of the appeal itself, with the appeal being re-opened if an issue is found. An appeal is considered to have been processed improperly if the criteria to use the speedy review process was not met, or if the facts which the processing admin relied on to process the appeal were incorrect. You must concisely describe why you believe the appeal was handled improperly. If no issue is found with the processing of the appeal, the appeal itself will not be re-reviewed. If, in bad faith, you claim that an appeal was handled improperly, the reviewing head admin may decide to extend the time you must wait before you appeal and/or extend your ban duration. You can find a full list of staff, including head game admins at the staff directory.
