Hi Everyone,

Over ninety years ago, William Howard Taft, the twenty-seventh President of the United States, proclaimed, "Anti-Semitism is a noxious weed that should be cut out. It has no place in America." Unfortunately, the sad truth is that anti-Semitism continues to exist in America today.

With that being said, this brings to me today's "Altitude is a serious business" story. ;)

There is a player on the Altitude ladders that goes by the name of "Jewbag (http://www.altitudeladder.com/profile.php?id=b88157e3-4555-4581-80ba-3b5794945441)". If you're unaware, "Jewbag" is a derogatory nickname (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=jewbag) for Jewish people. It is an unacceptable offensive term (Like the term "Nigger" for example).

Earlier today, a player by the name of "DMCM (http://www.altitudeladder.com/profile.php?id=5ec76fe2-7074-4926-8873-a0e2bf2d9ba5)" left a ball ladder game (http://www.altitudeladder.com/match.php?id=7709&mode=ball_6v6) in the middle, simply because he was offended by "Jewbag" (see attachments below).

The Altitude ladder servers are hosted by "Equivoice LLC", which based in the United States. U.S. laws clearly state that such religion-based harassment is ILLEGAL and FORBIDDEN.

In addition, according to the "Altitude Ladder Rules by Ryebone (http://altitudegame.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3294)", this behavior is forbidden by section 9. "Racism/Bigotry. General immaturity. Excessive or unrelenting trash talk targeting specific players."

Therefore, I'd to ask that you permanently ban "Jewbag".

Thanks in Advance,

Regeneration, an attorney for {ball}DMCM. xD

Don't come in here with random crap about William Taft and how U.S. laws forbid religious tolerance. We don't give two sh*ts about that, and you filling your post with information that has no relevance to ladder only serves to waste our time.

Jewbag has named himself Jewbag since before ladder's inception and to my knowledge has never spouted off a single anti-semetic statement.

DMCM though has no right to leave in the middle of a ladder game even if he feels that Jewbag is violating a rule. He will be banned.

Thread closed for excessively trollish opening post.
