    Reason for Ban Request: Insult
    Evidence: https://i.imgur.com/oyS8fsf.png
    Additional Comments: Aforementioned player (playing as the VIP character) blames the team throughout the game for not knowing how to play, with which I do not have any problem, obviously, since it is an in-game discussion/criticism within the limits of his/her rights although the tone is not appropriate. Some teammates, on the other hand, thinks he is the one to blame since he constantly died with his character. He replies with a statement involving the following phrase of "f*cking pathetic", which could again be OK, since the risky adjective is not directed to a specific person. After this, my reply to him is "We all saw how you died, man.", referring to the player's performance in the game. His reply happens to be the following: "Shut your f*cking mouth, subhuman piece of sh*t." I don't follow up with anything else other than "Ok".
    A few rounds later, I play as the VIP in the opposite team of the player. He comments negatively after the round end, althought there was no insult, it is just told here to give a full overview of the context.

    I know it may be considered as a very "usual" internet incident, and a relatively "mild" insult in online platforms. But I guess I am not a usual internet person, and I am still frustrated by insults of the people online when I compare this behaviour with how it would really be if the insulting person did not have the comfort of being behind a screen.
