First off: lose the caps. It doesn't help your case.

Secondly: it was your fellow players who put you on ignore, triggering the silence. Were they overzealous for something as trivial as linking an item twice in zone chat? Yes, absolutely.

Thirdly: while GMs can theoretically do something about it, the silence lasts 24 hours and it seems that it is almost always over before they can do an investigation on it.

Many, many people have had the same thing happen to them and it is very frustrating. I definitely sympathize. There have been a number of solutions offered to the devs such as only silencing from zone, local, and subscribed channels, but not fleet, friends, mails, or private tells. Hopefully the devs will do something about this in the near future.

If you want to ensure that something is going to fleet chat, type /fleet before your message.
