    Why were you banned?
    I was supposedly trolling when an admin decided that he did not like what I was doing, I was simply changing my name.

    Why should Harpoon grant your appeal?
    I should not be Permanently banned from a server for changing my name around a few times.

    You have impersonated a staff member of Harpoon Gaming, a partner community of SteamRep. Either you did this to troll, and was subsequently banned for it, or you did it with malicious intent, in which case you will then be marked on SteamRep.

    Are you claiming that your impersonation of an admin was not trolling?

    It was sort of trolling and I can see where you could get that from but I was trying to prove a point... I would have gladly accepted a 1-2 day ban but this was an overreaction.

    Our staff members have to deal with rule breakers, scammers, and people regularly trying to cause problems. At the same time, they have to middleman for trades from a few refined to hundreds of keys. We've had to handle reports, and also ban and mark PayPal scammers. When someone is claiming to be a staff member or an admin, they are inherently risking the safety of the players in the server, and possibly gaining the opportunity to scam someone.

    More often than not, when people impersonate our admins, they do so to scam keys, money, or other items off players. They do so because being staff here acts as a vouch of trust to most people. By using the tag, one that is not possible to accidentally add, you are trying to either mock that trust or use it to scam.

    If you impersonate a staff member of Harpoon (or any community), you receive either a permanent ban, or a permanent ban and a ban on SteamRep. Your responses within this appeal lead me to believe you don't understand the value of that, and that is a problem in itself.
