It's still a subjective list, though.
What's trolling for example?
What's just a point of view for one person is trolling for the next. What's a joke for one person is troling for another person.
What would qualify as an extreme racist remark and why make the difference between a racist remark and an extreme racist and who is going to decide which is which?
Uttering threats? What sort of threat are you talking about?
If you want people to have a clear opinion, you have to define the various categories more precisely because this suggestion is a bit on the vague side and open to discussion.
Furthermore, I think that a discussion of the forum rules need to be made when people aren't emotional about the permaban of a popular ex-poster.
If I see people compare a permaban on one forum on the entire internet with the death penatly, it gives me the impression that they're being too emotional about it because that's exaggerated.
I agree. Definitions must be clear and simple enough for people to understand. Remember, majority of members here do not speak english as their first language (like myself, english is my third language).
What is "wishing death"?
Does "If I were you, I'd die from embarrassment" constitute wishing death?
Because a mod banned me for that for several months right away, without asking me for explanation, or warning or infractions. Not to mention, I had NEVER received any warning or infraction before that.
It seems as things currently stand, each mod is free to define the rules by themselves.
Don't believe me? Just have a look at my ban/warning/infraction history and see which mod gave me the most love.
