Jamaican and Dominican (among others) are not English.

You can't say that words you found an English description for are English.

So sorry, no, that excuse does not fly.

Lol what? It's not an excuse, it's literally english. Broken English is still ENGLISH, because it's a root from english, there's no rule that says not to speak broken English it says not speaking ENGLISH is considered cheating, I spoke broken ENGLISH day 1, to nobody at all and somehow I'm cheating? you people would suspend for anything huh? just say you want me off your game that would be a better response.

Creole =/= English. There's a reason it's called creole, and not english.

Creole is still not the language of the locale you were playing in. You are playing on an English server, where you speak standard English, not Creole. Not even if you call it "broken English" (which is not the right term for it, as it is both pejorative and inaccurate). It is still considered a different language. Just as much as, in example, speaking Dutch does not mean speaking Afrikaans, which is technically derived from the same 'main' language, but is still not automatically understood by the 'standard' language speakers, meaning it is considered 'foreign'.

So no, when we say that you need to speak English in the English locale, it means you speak in standardized American or British English, not in foreign dialects, creole, or otherwise. The point isn't whether it is 'technically English', the point is that other players that speak the standard language are able to understand what you're saying. So no, this report will not hang on a technicality. And instead of senselessly trying to continue arguing about it, I'd suggest taking this as a teachable moment and just speak standardized English from now on.

You called it creole, all I did was say english words that are used in my country, no sentences just words. I get suspended for cheating when we obviously know I didn't cheat, nor said anything wrong since I spoke English. As I said just say that you wanted to suspend me, that seems like a better excuse.

Bomboclaat is Jamaican Patois slang, not English. And seeing as you still want to argue, let me quote:

Jamaican Patois, is an English-based creole language with West African influences, spoken primarily in Jamaica and among the Jamaican diaspora. A majority of non-English loan words in Patois come from the West African Akan language. It is spoken by the majority of Jamaicans as a native language.


So no, you're not suspended because someone wanted to suspend you, but, just as anyone who gets guiltied for the same thing: you got suspended for not speaking English.

Whether you cheat or not is a moot point. Anything that isn't strictly English (not creole, Jamaican, Trinidadian, or bastardized) is considered cheating unless it is a globally well-known greeting (i.e. Bonjour).

So while you might not like the answer, it's still the only answer there is.

I got suspended for speaking English. What I said was English Slang, not creole, it's literally english, do not call it creole because it was a slang. Either way that's not in the rules, the rules said English, nothing about strictly english so I don't see why the rules are being bent now (as usual) to prove a point that's invalid, once again if you wanna suspend me for no reason that's a better excuse.
