Complaint
Appeal

Edit:
1)This appeal has been edited to show a link to the warned post instead of re-quoting it, as has been requested by RCG.
2)The argument for the appeal has been streamlined.

I have received infractions for this post.
Reason: Personal Attack/Trolling (Obnoxious behavior)

As can be seen from this thread, a large enough group of people did indeed find the post to be Hitleresque, and therefore my reference to it as such should not be labeled a "Personal Attack." If forum members don't want their posts referred to in that manner, the obvious choice is to refrain from making such statements.

Edit to previous post:
It's understandable how the question about the Swastika could be perceived as an insult, however, keep in mind that there are plenty of people who proudly display Swastikas, and strongly defend their right to do so. ENGINETORQUE's antisemitic comment elicited/provoked the inquiry.
.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ....................
In other forums, the most likely solution to this little skirmish would be to delete both ENGINETORQUE's post, and mine. I'm not making such a request. ENGINETORQUE's comment is a reflection of his character and should be available for public scrutiny. And as such, my post should also remain, for to delete my post and allow his post to remain, would be a reflection of RCG's character.

Once again, I'll politely ask:
