FANDOM Staff have terrible handling on issues involving homophobia, transphobia, etc. Whenever they see a transphobic or homophobic comment, instead of warning the user and telling him/her to stop being transphobic/homophobic, the user instantly receives an infinite block and the Staff will NEVER let him/her appeal, even if the user is not homophobic/transphobic anymore.

In my opinion, you should add this
I'm continuing this here: the reason I'm telling you this is because I experienced it myself: I said a transphobic comment once, which I really regret doing, but whenever I try to appeal (I have to create multiple accounts because no matter how many emails I send, they end up ignoring me permamently), they say that why I did was very inapropiate and that there are "very strict rules" on that kind of comments. SERIOUSLY?!?!?! WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!?!?! I'm not even a transphobic person anymore, I have learned it's wrong but they still whine about that!
Hey, were you Gilben? I saw you got blocked forever and got your account disabled then unblocked. FANDOM even lies about the infinite blocks, I used to have one on my account named DoritoFan80 but they just disabled it and unblocked it 3 months later. Now I'm on the website as Inferno8890. I'm unblocked so I'm not breaking the rules.
Also there was this guy named Futuristichub (that 1 mil sub ytber) who threatened people with false legal action and he didn't get blocked forever.
and especially PKMNLivesNew.
that guy is a troll, vandal, harasser who complains that he gets harassed...how hypocritical.
Yeah I was Gilben. I'm right now talking to the staff through emails. An idiot said that he's happy I changed my behavior but that he won't change his mind on the block. What's wrong with him?
And the account is not unblocked. You can't even access it.
Really, FANDOM (Wikia) is gone full SJW nowadays.
Yup. They take it too far.
If they were just as they claim to be, they would unblock you. But they won't because they are corrupted administrators and also bigots. If you want to keep using their site the only thing you can do now is to use another account without contacting them again. This way they won't spot you.
Actually, I even created another account (I have made about 4 or 5 accounts so far) and they blocked each one of them except the last one I've created. In fact, I contacted them through this account and, as you'd expect, they say - with no reason nor explanation at all - that they are not lifting the block. However, this time, an idiot said that "he is happy that I changed my behavior and that he stated the Staff may do another review if I ask them a couple of months later" yeah fuck you, and why not now?
I've even edited on this last account, multiple times, and nothing happened.
Who's the guy who said this to you?
George Marbulcanti, aka Kirkburn. Also, that other idiot Brandon Rhea was the first I talked to and was the first to ignore me. The last (and second) thing he told me is something among the lines of "the behavior you showed towards the transgender user is far beyond acceptable". Of course it is, but it's not UNFORGIVABLE.
My advice: if you can still edit somehow, just do it and forget about them.
I imagined it was George Marbulcanti, he is one of the saner staff members on FANDOM but not one of the highest in hierarchy, thus he could not lift your block. The real problematic ones there are SemanticDrifter and BertHall, aside from the obvious Brandon Rhea.
