Looks like you were banned for your former inappropriate name. Wich is fair indeed. If you were a bank robber during many years, and a few days after you decided to stop, you were arrested. Would it be unfair to send you to jail? No, because your former crimes deserve punishment.

Just do the time you deserve and be good when you get out.

I'd disagree. Bank robbery is a poor analogy. The bank robbery is an obvious crime but while not entirely applicable in this case, someone might be breaking a rule without realizing it for various reasons. So the purpose of handing out warnings before bans is entirely useless if you are still liable to be punished for things you did wrong before you realized they were wrong.

Intent is everything. Outcome is relatively minor.
(Here's a nice TED talk on why this is the more moral and more mature approach to this problem: http://www.ted.com/talks/rebecca_sax...judgments.html)

Though it's not quite applicable in this case of an obviously inflammatory name, general principle should take this guy's side.

Honestly RIOT needs to remove your ban or refund your RP since if they ban you for a bad name they force a name change on you.

Red post here please.
