Hey I appreciate the appeal and yeah your story is true thank you for the honesty. Though you weren’t using the word in a malicious manner we simply have a zero tolerance for any word that can be used in an extremely harmful manner racially, homophobic or transphobic just to simply protect people from using these words in a derogatory manner to create a somewhat safe space for everyone y’know. 
You had a warning a couple hours prior for use of the f-slur hence why you were banned on this occasion. 

I will leave this appeal open for a little for community feedback; but the honesty really is greatly appreciated. Good luck!

Sure, you admit to what you did. However when asked if you think you deserved the ban, you say "no" which leads me to believe you would do the same thing again and again if given the chance.

A reduction would be okay I guess but a full unban for sure not. And even for a reduction I have my concerns.

Edit: -1 for anything.

You say you had no malicious intent, which is understood, but be aware that hate speech of any kind no matter the circumstances is allowed in this community.

Please never use hatespeech here ever again, if you do it will lead to greater bans. 

+1 for a reduction

The reason I answered no to that question isn't because I disagree with the rule or its intent to prevent hateful behavior, but because like I said I don't categorize the way I acted as falling under the type of conduct that this rule tries to prevent (although now I understand its boundaries more clearly.) I've made this clear and I'd appreciate it if you didn't disingenuously misinterpret my answer to that question by assuming something like that.

Understood, thanks.

Seems genuine, and now he knows about the zero exceptions rule so +1 for reduction or unban. Don’t do it again!

Based upon Misa reply I will say 

+1 Reduction | but Neutral to -1 on a full unban. 

Reason: You were supposedly saying the F slur also prior to the ban so you had some knowledge of the server rules even if it wasn't a full understanding of them. I don't know many songs that say the F slur in any ways except hate speech (Only song I can think of off hand is a System of a Down song which uses it in a questionable way talking about cigs) 

As stated we do hold very strict rules on that word regardless of it being song lyrics or just people saying it in a friendly casual way that is sometimes done in society. 
We can't anyone is who they claim to be and even so it's easier to just say Nobody can use these words regardless of reason to keep it fair for everyone and so hate speech is kept off the server.
GMod and online "trolls" seem to bring a lot of hate toward multiple groups these days so we just don't allow anyone to say anything.

You didn't seem to be using the N word in a hateful way however so I see no objection in reducing the ban to few days or a week at most. 
Plus you're honest in your appeal which is a huge step in the right direction.

Hello Diyor so it’s been a little bit of time and through community voice and personal thought I will be unbanning you entirely. The words you used had no malicious intent and you were singing along to a song as was already stated. Please from this point onwards do be using any kind of slur or derogatory language on the server, whether it be in a song or not as it will simply result in a 4 week+ ban. If you have any questions you can reach out and I’m more than happy to talk.

For now you will be unbanned somepoint today when someone gets on. 

Appeal Accepted.
Player Unbanned.
