24 hour chat ban is a bit excessive

If this feature is set up at all correctly, users' reports of abusive chat or whatever shouldn't trigger the ban. Rather, it should flag an account for a GM to peruse the chatlog and make a decision. If in fact you got banned merely because a couple other players clicked buttons, that's pretty bad. But if they only reported you and then you got silenced when someone looked over the report, chances are there's more to this story, I would guess, that you haven't mentioned.
I mean, the alternatives are that players can silence other players just by having enough people report someone or that the devs/GMs/admins are silencing players for simply swearing, as your story goes. Neither of these is appealing, so for now I choose to believe you've done something. *shrug*
