I have discussed this with the other admins, and I am enforcing a non-harassment policy. This is NOT just for simple squabbles. People are free to disagree with each other, argue, etc. However, there are some limits. You cannot make physical threats to people. You cannot bring up their friends/family members and insult them. Don't make racist or homophobic comments. Etc. Doing these things will result in a 3 day ban from the forum.

I understand your frustration, but it's not as if other websites don't have moderation. It shouldn't be hard to NOT get banned, I assure you I am not going to go around randomly banning people for funsies.

I just don't think it's fair to ban people when we are all a community where we are all equal. If you don't like what someone says IGNORE THEM. You shouldn't be banning people.

Well there might not even be a forum by tomorrow morning since your BFF already reported the forum.


Damn you people for suggesting naughty areas Laughing

Lol my BFF? Let's not be immature. I'm friends with everyone except Neel and am very neutral about every fight that usually happens here because I don't take sides but using your power to ban someone is excessive just because you don't like someone.

That is the point though, we are a COMMUNITY. It shouldn't be a hostile environment. We've already established that the bans are only going to occur in rare circumstances, if at all. It really shouldn't be hard to follow the very basic level of not harassing people.

So are the people he's harassing just supposed to sit there and take it? What do you suggest they do, ignore him? lol

I mean it says a lot when he sends a complaint to forumotion saying we are promoting porn to minors in this forum just because he got banned. You're telling me to not be immature, you tell me now whos being immature here. You probably won't agree with me because like I said, you're friends with him. So whatever.

So if the forum gets deleted, just want everyone to know it was Jesse's fault.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. What is the difference of some of you sitting on skype saying terrible things about people as opposed to publicly.

Communities are entitled to freedom of speech. This isn't a dictatorship and no one was elected to enforce rules around here or ban people. We are equal in my opinion so I think banning people is OUT OF LINE.

When Neil harasses people everyone is told to ignore it so when Jesse does it I'm not sure why the situation is different?

Yes. Ignore it! That's really all you have to do. Let's act like adults.

Banning people because I don't like them would be out of line, yes. But notice that didn't happen. There are people here I may not particularly like much, and yet I am not preventing them from posting. The ban is temporary, as stated, and only because of extreme behavior. I assure you, I would do the same thing to anyone, if Murr decided to harass people he would receive the same treatment.

Dillon, I am sorry, but you are just talking in circles. I understand the point you are trying to make, but at the same time, like you said ACT LIKE ADULTS. That means dealing with things when you are upset, not insulting people's families, significant others, ethnic background, etc. If Neil does those things he will receive the same treatment.

Oh god i dont think I am about to do this....

But the difference is, Neil doesnt threaten to rape someone, crush someone's skull, or wishes people were deported back to their countries. I am surprised he hasn't said anything homophobic yet.

I mean there's no point in discussing this with you, because you are on his side. He already filed a report with forumotion. I got a copy of his report. So he did what he wanted to do. And now we'll wait and see what happens.

To be fair, IMDb had the same policies, and many people got their accounts wiped and/or disabled (at least on the Soapbox, where that shit was common). They just stopped enforcing them a couple years ago when they started automating moderation.

I don't think banning people for homophobic/racist comments is necessary (but whatever), but personal threats (even if idle, provided it's not a joke between the parties in question) kind of crosses the line. The person in question did that.

I know he says things that are terrible. I've said terrible things as have a lot of us. Just recently I was pissed at Neil and told him to go play in traffic....

The point is I don't think you guys should be banning people because of what someone says when they are angry.

Honestly Dillon, I didn't like that either. But it was one post and before we thought of the idea of this policy. Seriously, we are not asking that much of people. Don't threaten people. It should be common sense.

I respect the admins for finally taking a stance on the awful comments I've seen displayed in the last few days. I have to say it, but this is Henry's forum and we all came here knowing full well he made it, so we kind of have to live with the rules. If people are upset about Jesse's banning, they are more than free to start a new forum with him.

I suspect I wouldn't be the only one who would absolutely refuse to join it.

I personally don't care what anyone says. I've never been offended by anything anyone has posted on this forum or the Games Board on IMDb.

But as Dan said, this is a private forum - admins can enforce any rules they want. A lot of people are bothered by Jesse's comments. I get along with Jesse most of the time, but when he's personally threatening someone... I fully understand why people would be upset and want to give him a cooldown period. And as I'll reiterate, these policies are no different than IMDb's (albeit IMDb started automating moderation so it became hit-or-miss whether they were enforced). I imagine admins here will be far more lax for the most part - I can't see Henry, Javi, or Cherry banning people just for the lolz.

It's a 3 day ban. It's not like he was permanently banned. It's just long enough to chill out. He's still part of the community... it's just 3 days.
