Krispos, I think we may be treading on a fine line. (Group business.) [View all]

The banning of rDigital, however justified given content (I disagree with the reason for the ban, but I understand it and would rather avoid the finer points at the moment), sets a dangerous precedent. You banned him for stating that Controllers enabled the Holocaust. I understand that rDigital is currently filing an appeal to you directly, but I trust that you understand the potential can of worms that has been opened with this banning. Where does it stop?

If an RKBAer says "Gun controllers are future facists", should it (by precedent) be banned?

If a Controller says "Gun nuts are hidden criminals", should it (by precedent) be banned?

rDigital's case is a unique one that it is considered more "Severe" in the aspect that he essentially Godwin'ed himself, but Nazi references aside, when is it okay to insult -any- DUer, or even a broad-brush of a swath of DU itself? You'll have posters who will defend weasel-words such as "I only said 'Most', not 'all'" or some other such tripe of course; it is to be expected. At what point is this broad-brush smearing considered intolerable? When RKBAers support satiric criminal murder? When Controllers paint the entire Gungeon as a troll-fest?

I'm all for order, Krispos, but as the recent Meta thread showed, this is getting slightly out of hand. Look at the evidence in that thread; The RKBA forum is suffering from tyranny of the majority, outright persecution by definition, and animosity to outright hostility.

While the denizens here in RKBA may enjoy the group as it stands, it is my belief that something has to, and probably will, break. The current system is -not- working. Spam-alerting from both sides is heavy yet the jury system inherently supports one side of the argument, while the other side claims no recourse. Can you think of -any- potential fixes that may help settle what seems to be a fairly swiftly-growing mess?

(Note; I do understand that you are incredibly busy with the hurricane cleanup and support, and I do not expect much consideration to be taken in regards to my post here, nor even a response. However, I hope you at least read it and perhaps give it some thought. )


Stay safe out there, brother.
