I've always thought that most of the bans I've witnessed were completely unnecessary.
But that's only before I realize that a tigs account isn't that big a deal. Life goes on. It's really nothing more than a slap on the hand depending on your perspective.
I mean... I get it, allowing free speech and all that is nice, but there's no need for words that would hurt anyone's feelings. I understand the need to protect the safety of the many or whatever you'd call it.
which is why it bugs me that some mods are jerkholes to people. why are banable people banning people? Why are they actually banning? If it's to protect someone from being hurt, then why are they arseholes? Is it simply the joy of using ones elected power?
Did I like miss something? Who got banned?
yeah i don't think anyone has been permanently banned for being a scumbag. most of the people who've been permabanned were super disruptive and spread their shit everywhere. (eg antymatter, and uh... idk. antymatter.) the only thing that comes close is people leaving over being offended after being called on their shit, eg jwk5
Is there some history I am missing? Who are these famous people you speak of?
Seriously? What is going on?
