SiLiCoN14, word similar to racist word

Ban reason: Saying a word reminiscent of the n-word, the English word niggard that means ungenerous person.
Length of ban: Permanent
Events leading to the ban: I said the word out of the blue and 
Reason the ban should be removed: I am deeply sorry for my mistake and forgot that I couldn’t joke around with similar words as I can in most of my chatrooms and I promise it will not happen again. I hope that you will accept my apology and if you do, i would have no problem with a temporary ban because of my mistakes. 

This has been put to an admin discussion and vote of which we have come to the consensus to reduce the ban from indefinite to 2 week.

The reasons provided in the discussion for this decision were the following:

  • Giving the benefit of the doubt.
  • Any further usage of it will result in a more severe ban.

In several decades of speaking English, with many different dialects, I’ve never heard anyone use this word.
Don’t be a wise guy and don’t use it anymore, No further leeway will be given.

Appeal Accepted - Reduced ban ending on 17/02/2024
