"Anti-US propaganda" is way too vague to justify a ban. The US has done, and continues to do, many deplorable things. That's not "propaganda". These forums are not the best place to debate them, but I think the Hiroshima & Nagasaki thread was relevant enough here. Anyway, it's not like there's anything stopping you from posting anti-Croatian things. There's no shortage of tidbits from the NDH period that you could bring up. Also a sizable war in the 90s.

They're not the same, but they are still related. One can significantly enhance the other. Tournaments, for instance, require forum access for posting screenshots, tracking results, and organizing matches. On the other side, actually playing the game can give you a better understanding of the people that you are talking about. Bans should be reserved for extremely poor conduct, especially when they concern pillars of the actively playing community.
