This probably isn't the correct form. I couldn't find any staff complaint sub-forum, but regardless, I think this should suffice.
I was on the EGC | US West Trade Server trading as normal. I usually use my mic, and when I do I muted some people. The admin in question was Ms. Freakshow, who had muted me without prior warning. I asked "why" and I was apparently talking over her. I couldn't have known about this because she never used chat to tell me, she just said it in VC and I wasn't able to hear her. After telling her that I muted her, along with other people, she gagged me for arguing with her (even though I couldn't hear a single word she was saying because she refused to use the chat).
This has nothing to do with her being a female, but she took it as a personal attack for some reason. As the gag reason said "Ms Freakshow: Issued an extended gag on 2dollaslices for 30 minutes (reason: arguing with admin after HE talked over freakshow and MUTED her)."
Its key to note, that as I was muting other players, I wasn't aware that Ms. Freakshow was an admin because she didn't talk in chat, and because of that, I wasn't able to see her admin tag or whatever. I don't think it should be a player responsibility to memorize a list of admins before joining a server. The fact she didn't reach out to me and took action instantly instead of thinking makes me think that she's not really fit for being an admin. I don't think this knee-jerk reaction style of enforcement is the kind you should be letting on your server. Had she warned me in chat that I was talking over her prior to the mute, I would have unmuted her and complied.
EDIT: It is also worth noting that I was kicked after being gagged. Not sure why, but I went back on anyways to see I was still muted/gagged. This seemed very unnecessary. After today's incident, I'm considering avoiding your trade servers altogether, as this immature style of administration is very unprofessional.
