Silence Penalty needs to change
If people break the rules they should be banned from speaking in public channels or LFG. Banning people from talking with their friends is too harsh a penalty.
You are already banned from alot of activities in wow and the silence penalty doesnt diminish it keeps stacking.
I'm not advocating for the silence penalty to BE REMOVED. I'm advocating for a sensible penalty system.
This is a case where the punishment doesn’t fit the crime.
There’s a difference between using inappropriate language and hacking.
There’s a difference between spamming something in /yell and exploiting a game mechanic.

NOTE: I am not advocating for a removal of the silence penalty. I am asking for a sensible one.

That's not the problem.


Apparently it is because you seem to have a habit of whispering people quite rudely. I think the punishment does fit the crime in your case.

Maybe start being a bit more respectful to your fellow players and you won't get silenced, its a pretty simple chain of events. I mean you literally have to go out of your way to earn a silence.

See I had a feeling OP was doing some bad things. I've yet to see ANYONE who's been saying the silence penalty is too harsh not turn out to be a huge jerk.

I've yet to see anyone whose gotten silence and didn't deserve it. I've seen tons of trolls and, frankly, buttheads get silenced, but I haven't seen ANYONE who's not a jerk get silenced.


I rarely reply to these threads because I don't want to ever have the expectation that we regularly do this. I think it can be good occasionally so that you guys know we look into them to validate the actions.

I do however, for my own curiosity, look into every single one that I see, and I haven't found a single mistake yet when it comes to silences.

You can’t hide on your alt from a blue

You'd think after nearly 14 years people would know this by now.

It's also very telling that the Blue states they seem to spend most of their time investigating in something they have no business in

Literally not what I said. I said I look into them, which means I just send an email to someone asking nicely for the details if they have the time. It takes maybe a min or two.
