Facts

See Evidence above


Evidence

Exhibit A

Defendant had been previously given a permanent full ban, but the ban was lifted by the PFA on the promise that the inappropriate comments that they had made on IRC were behind them. However, the inappropriate comments returned on IRC, along with complaints from other COs. In addition to inappropriate comments towards people for their nationality, Defendant criticized people for having a different way of life than their own. The PFA had also received complaints from COs that defendant had been criticizing the way that they ran their sims, with Defendant assuming that they could do it better despite having issues of their own on their sim, the USS Argo/Gaia Colony. They were given two months to clean up their behavior, or the ban would be reinstated. Just as the two months came to a close, the PFA received additional complaints, this time in reference to comments made that could be considered sexual harassment. It was decided unanimously by the PFA that the ban should be reinstated, effective immediately. It should be noted that Defendant was warned that if the ban was reinstated, it would indeed be permanent. They have run out of chances in Pegasus Fleet, and the ban should not be lifted again. Last Reviewed: 12th June 2016 Note: Although the incident above occurred in Pegasus Fleet, Bravo Fleet adopted the ban in 2016."
