Due to the rampant foul language, and player abuse, I chose to punish him.

I judge tribunal cases regularly, and these kinds of cases are the norm, not the exception. Players behave this badly in many games, including ones I play in on a regular basis, and I think a lot of this behaviour goes unreported.

Judging on the tribunal has motivated me to become a more constructive player.

EDIT:
I noticed summoners later on in this thread were pointing out that "he wasn't so bad". I can't disagree more with you, as that kind of attitude is a slippery slope. I admit, that doing tribunal cases result in a 'jaded' feeling, and I catch myself saying "well, he wans't THAT bad".

This is dangerous. I want nice summoners in my games. I don't want guys who were sent to the tribunal, even if they werent being blatantly racist, or incredibly vulgar to be pardoned. Being mildly mean is a punish. Impacting the experience negatively is a punish.

Left one looks like mutual trolling. Mid one is calling everyone noobs and then leaving, neither of which I would ban for on their own. The right one is the only one that's really banworthy.

I would probably skip this one in the tribunal, tbh. I would bet he gets banned in the end, but I wouldn't want to be a part of banning a guy for a single game where he got abusive.

Easy punish. Offensive language, bashing teammates, just generally not a nice person to be around.

Just because people in your game are equally as bad (flaming wise) doesn't give you a free pass to behave like that.
