A few nights ago I got an angry message after winning a game, based on his quickness to drop the N bomb, while calling me a **bleep** I assumed he was young. I responded roughly the same only ending it with “keep it with civil”, thinking for some reason that would either get him to stop, or at least be more civil. As you may have expected, of course it didn’t work, and it went on for a while until I finally got his last message thinking it was over. The next day when I signed in I got message telling me my account was banned or suspended. This annoys me because I wasn’t the aggressor, or instigator, and what’s worse is now because I’m banned, I cant even complain back. So I made this profile and have been trying with no luck to get in touch with someone from Playstation who can at least read the messages, or explain why I got banned, or at the very least ban this kid who I’m sure is currently harassing someone else and laughing his **bleep** off about it. Maybe just at least tell me if I’m only suspended, and how long it will be. Anyone know how this kind of thing works?

Solved! Go to Solution.
Receiving multiple messages from him and did not choose to block him? Ive received many angry messages from Call of Duty. I usually just reply "LOL" then proceed to block them or dont reply at all. Should of just been the bigger man and left it alone from the start, laugh it off because in the end you won.

i could be wrong but i seriously believe when a msg is reported,Sony only sees that specific msg and not the whole conversation,now i could be wrong but i don't think i am..
i have seen friends do this over and over,they will report right off the bat then go back and give that person hell and they never get banned because they reported first...it's a flawed system but this is how i have always seen it..
i have been known to give a few people grief myself lol,but i will not use my main acct to do so and when they msg cussing me back on that acct. you can report them again..or even do it multiple times and those little 12 year old punks will take the bait everytime and then they wonder..."why did i get a console ban".........like i said it's a very flawed system
You didnt get banned by a "12 year old" you got banned by said 12 year old reporting you, and if Im correct in assuming the way SONY handles these things, he was banned as well.
This is incredilby humorus to me, you sort of deserved it. I mean, if you are so much more mature than him, why not simply ignore him/block him? The fact that you "responed similarly" makes you no better than him.

to me I don't put up with that crap.. I just block them and don't respond to them at all if it happens, sooo in other words don't get offended by them and don't respond to them it just makes things worse
