Does this fall under my right to protest?

Does this fall under my right to protest? Topic: Does this fall under my right to protest?
July 18, 2019 / By Galen
Question: specifically, i want to protest a website/business via a letter, mailed to their headquarters. They banned me from their game, from which i bought a subscription to play and bought other things in-game with real money. They banned me on what i think are unfair bases, and therefore plan on mailing them a letter with evidence to support my points and ask to be unbanned. However, when talking to the game's support online through their website, they claimed i was harrassing them. Therefore my question is: Is mailing them a professional letter, highlighting why i'm upset, why i should be unbanned, and present valid evidence, can this be considered harassment? keep in mind i am not 18.... i would sue/get a lawyer however i have no means to do so

Your letter will go right in the circular file. The company is a private entity, and can make their rules any way they wish. Apparently, you did something that violated their Terms of Service (TOS) so you were banned. An abject apology and asking if they will work with you will be more acceptable than a nastygram. You may have the right to protest, but the company is not a governmental body, but a private company, and as such, can do as they darn well please.

Derek Originally Answered: Why were non violent protest effective?
Because USA is a democracy. Non violent protests rarely work or are successful in non democratic countries.In China,the Communist dictatorship ordered in tanks to crush peaceful pro democracy protesters. Non violent protests in Iran a few years ago were stamped out by the Revolutionary Guard. In non democracies,as long as the ruling regime has someone to pull the trigger for them,non violent protest goes nowhere and achieves nothing.

no, writing a letter should not be considered harassment, unless you made any kind of threat. you should be able to get a pro rated refund say it was 12 dollars for a year and you got banned after the first month, you could ask for 11 dollars refund especially if there was no mention of losing money due to being banned look up the 3 step administrative process best wishes

Yes you can send a letter. But be aware repeated, unwanted communication is the definition of harassment. But, it's only a misdemeanor so you won't have to go to jail.

Harassment, by definition, focuses in on an overwhelming attack-of-sorts by the so-called guilty party. Are you too intense in your methodology, perhaps? I would back off a bit...and give it a go later...Good luck, dear fellow!

Shona Originally Answered: How can I protest against the $15 minimum wage in California?
Join a union, they are begging for an exemption to the Cali wage hike! Those liberal unions,....LMAO! LOL CNBC bytchs! As cities and states move independently to raise mandated pay for workers, the role of unions has emerged in the national fight for $15 an hour. In May, the Los Angeles City Council voted to lift the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020. As the council reconvenes this week after a summer recess, the group is expected to take action on a union-backed clause in the wage bill that would exempt unionized workers. Union officials argue the exception would allow them to negotiate better overall contracts, while some critics say the exemption would create an uneven playing field for mandated wages. "The argument for a union exemption for minimum wage is that workers represented by unions have the ability to bargain for a combination of wages, benefits and working conditions that works best for them," says Chris Tilly, an urban planning professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.
