Let me start this off by saying, I know where you are coming from. However, the laws are put in place to make desteria a enjoyable place for all. And, in the end of the day it is still spam. Now, staff shouldn't just be punishing. But telling users what they could have done differently so next time they are not punished. So maybe a solution for this would be to have the host of the giveaway ask for PM's instead of flooding pub chat. A reason why chat spam is unplesant for people is that it denies them access to chat. Ex: a user without a microphone trying to communicate to his/her faction in faction chat. They can't send chat messages or communicate while the spam is going on. Yes, the laws are there for the people. All people. Not just the people who participate.
