Maybe the MTF community should decide on that matter in a more fundamental way (poll or something)?
Only one poster needed a ban, and a lifelong one at that. He was the root cause of the whole thing.

That is not a legally coherent approach. if you break rules you deserve sanctions no matter who started it.

All those bans are well deserved. MTF has always had an excellent moderation.

This person basically baited and started it and goaded the others INTO the rule breaking.

Why do you let yourself get baited? I mean, if it's fun then no problem, but it sounds like things got heated. Filo is just trying his best to provoke, you can't take anything he says seriously or personally. Sounds like a discussion in which you should either be laughing or not present.

Same here although I did my best to reason with Filo in a serious manner. That whole argument was a pointless baitfest from both sides, and I tried to stop it. Unfortunately for Doc, he got caught in the cross fire. Really unfair.

Plus our troll threads got deleted.

in that case it is up to interpretation to what extent the others deserved sanctions and certainly also depends on the extent of rule breaking. Can you legally hit your neighbor if he provokes you? No..
anyway, I guess that is what the mods did as well as considering to what extent certain posters stretched the rules on other occasions etc. Interpretations are by nature diverse, so I'm not surprised that there are opposing views.
That said, I feel that some past bans like Saulos have been too harsh.

Exactly what it appears like.

Anyway, Filo V used the exact same victimization drama to get a bunch of people banned last year, so anyone who witnessed that and still engaged with him deserves to be banned imo. Newcomers who were unaware( Elister maybe) hopefully learned their lesson.

Seriously though, playing the victim on MTF is a wonderful strategy. Anyone who expresses outrage and indignation and goes on a reporting spree forces the mods to act.

What happened with Thanos and durrr? Only a short ban for Thanos but he will not be pleased when he comes back

HL (for the brave nomination despite the possibility of incurring Thanos' wrath)

You have never wavered in your support of MTF moderators.

Hopefully he'll carry on with the personal attacks and get some longer ban
