    I am pretty sure you already know what this is about.
    But, on the off chance that you do not, I will clarify.

    I went to log on Wednesday night and was greeted with this message:

    You have been banned for the following reason: You can be racist all you want. But you can't be racist here. No, we are not infringing on your First Amendment rights. No one stopped you from saying your racist post. But... There are consequences for what you say, this time a 3 day ban. Your ban will be lifted on Aug 6, 2016.

    I am fairly certain I already know which post is referred too, and I defy anyone to show me how it was "racist."

    More irritating than the ban itself, however, is the condescending and insulting ban message.
    Not only was I called a racist, you implied that I was stupid enough to think that the American First Amendment applies to a website owned by a British guy and based in-- Santa Ana, California, as I just discovered. I always thought the server was in somewhere in Europe. But I digress.
    I'm fully aware that freedom of speech does not apply to online forums, and to imply otherwise was insulting.

    I already know who banned me.
    Site rules prevent me from publicly calling you out, but I know you will see this.
    We need to discuss this.
     
    Mister Asmodeus bro hoofs this.
