I was quite surprised to find I had been reported for 'Item Misrepresentation'. After reading the report, and the looking at the screenshot, I realised that it was a joke my friend and I had done several months ago. My friend was at my house and we were on a trade server, and my friend and some other people were joking about how Cancerous and bad a dirty batters helm was and how it was the worst the hat in the game. So as a joke, my friend name tagged my Dirty Batter's Helm, 'Flaming Team Captain' a reference to the most valuable hat in the game. Lots of people on the server had a good laugh when it came up on the chat that it'd been renamed to that. Anyway, onto why the guy reported me. Soon after the Batter's Helm was renamed, a trader posted a standard message along the lines of, 'Selling Unusual XYZ, Trade Me' into chat. My friend thought it would be funny to trade him and offer it on his unusual (http://forums.steamrep.com/attachments/derping-png.3407/) . I think this is where the issue needs to be cleared up. The trader clearly misinterpreted my friends joke, and so reported me for scamming. I don't blame him, as it could well of appeared that I was some type of horrifically bad scam. Soon after, my friend also put up a fake trade on Outpost: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/3534804. Which got shut down for being a 'Troll Trade' and got me a 1 day ban: http://imgur.com/ks8Ca This whole 'Flaming Team Captain' thing was just a little joke between me and my friend and I never intended it to get me reported for scamming. Feel free to look at my OutPost and see that I am in fact a legitimate trader and donator: http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/44780 As to what happened to the Batters Helm, I raffled it away, on tf2 raffle (along with many other things) Link here: http://tf2r.com/k04m510.html Sorry to write such a long appeal, but I just want this whole issue to be cleared up, and hopefully you now realize it was just a misinterpreted joke (and a stupid joke at that) Feel free to ask me any questions and thank you for your time.
