I joined this server called "The Sauce" IP 126.96.36.199 , and when I was playing a game and this dude with the named crow permantaly banned me for get this....killing another player while they were typing. What the heck is going on? I tryed to join this game from my other computer, but I was banned from that computer too. Does anyone know a website for this server or an e-mail? Any input is appreacted.

This was a PB server? The new PB uses a harsh method of banning, I think it bans your hardware/computer, along with your CD and CD key. It's actually a bit invasive. Are you sure all you did was kill one guy who was typing? If they banned you for just that, it's definetly admin abuse. Admins are requried to warn a player, then kick, then if they continue to cause problems, ban, although usually a short term bad, depending on the circumstances.
I don't know if it had PB, but I killed two guys who were typing before I was in conversation with this admin. The guy who turned out to be the admin didn't announce himself as the admin. He told me to stop one time, and I said that on many servers if you are typing then you are vonerable to be killed. Then after I finished typing that I was booted, so I reconnected and wanted to tell him that his rules were crap, but I would agree to his rules and Not kill people while typing (keeping in mind that I hadn't started playing yet after reconnecting). Then after typing that I was permabanned.

What a complete tw@t of an admin... It's impossible to know if someones typing other than the fact they don't move, which could be for one of many reasons... Don't see why you wanna go back if it's that bad... I don't think he'll unban you, once you've been permabanned the admin doesn't undo it since it is such a dire action. Seriously though, just don't bother going back... If what you're telling is the truth, then he and the server is not worth it. There're lots more servers.
I want to go back to that server because there are good players there and the map rotation is just what I want. My dad can go on that server so what I think I'll do is that I will wait for that dude, and I'll talk to him about unbanning me I just hope that as soon as I start talking to him about unbanning me that he might bann my dad. Then my dad would get mad for getting him banned from that server.
