I have a supposed conduct violation in the following debate with BSH1: https://www.debateart.com/debates/310 . In the last round I claimed that bsh1 sent me a PM that stated the following
"Wylted, go fuck yourself. You suck at debating and it is a slap in the face to have to suffer through a debate with such a retard"
Let's imagine this was a lie on my part, and that it should be punished though I disagree, I have been banned from the following practices;
1. starting or accepting debates
This is fair, it took place in a debate the punishment fits the crime.
2. Voting on debates
Not even remotely fair and has nothing to do with the supposed violation.
3. I have been banned from reporting debates or votes on debates
How is this even relevant. If I see child porn posted on a debate I just have to ignore it now, instead of reporting it, I have not abused the report function. This is unfair and unjust.
I am about to be banned 3 days because Castin said if I do not apologize I will be banned. For all anybody knows all PM screen shots of my interactions with bsh1 have been faked by him, so no evidence against me that is believable is out against me. I did tell him and virtuosa I lied about bsh1 in the debate, but for all they know I merely did that to defend his reputation to a couple of people close to him, and that my original allegation was honest.
I have very little time to make my case as I assume I will be banned shortly, but my philosophy is that in the debate, and as long as these things do not have provable repercussions outside of a debate that any arguments made should be permissable given the tabula Rasa method most judges should be using. That means if I need to lie about an opponents behind the scene manners to win, it is permissable.
In short, it can not be proven I lied about bsh1, screen shots can be and often are faked, if I did lie it is permissable to lie to win a debate, and if not permissable than the punishment does not fit the crime.
