    The Latest Bans

    Because this was obviously going to get a whole lot of questions, so we might as well deal with it right away.

    We recently got hold of information which shed some new light on the situation surrounding Break's ban, and the actions of a few forum members in provoking and encouraging his behaviour. We were shown a conversation in which this group discussed their actions; after looking into it, we found BL posts confirming the the basic facts of that conversation and the intent of those involved. After the usual rounds of discussion and votes, we decided on the measures below for the serious offenders:

    Break remains banned.
    We had lots of different reasons for deciding on this, sometimes while rejecting each other's views, despite agreeing on the actual result. Broadly, the strains of thought were that:
    1) He might have been provoked, but he wasn't provoked badly enough to justify his rule-breaking; the offences therefore stood, and so would his ban.
    2) The ban was agreed on for a repeated and compulsive pattern of behaviour. Even if we took away that one offence, the whole pattern was still very much present. Relatedly, Break was actually offending too fast for us to keep up, with even more infractions occurring during the debate which led to his final perma. In short, this wasn't a matter of a final straw breaking the camel's back: Break had several more straws than were necessary to kill our poor camel. Taking that into account, he should probably be perma-banned even without us considering this one occasion.
    3) Having banned Break, there wasn't any real point in unbanning him when it seemed clear that he would continue. If all the warnings and even the last-ditch ultimatums didn't stop him, we doubted that a reversed perma would be able to do it either.

    Strife is given a public warning and a week-long ban.
    Strife goaded Break the most directly of the merrie band. Although the final decision was that he hadn't done anything so bad as for us to put more than a single formal warning on his record, we really wanted to underline that this kind of behaviour is not on. You don't get to troll people, and certainly not in an attempt to use the mods as your personal beating stick. Because of that, he gets a special extended holiday to go with the warning.

    Christemo is permanently banned.
    Christemo also prodded at Break alongside Strife, and was the one to press the report button as soon as he could, which some of us found especially unpleasant. This being (more than) his third warnable offence while on a second permanent strike, he's at last stretched our patience too far. As per the rules, he gets his perma.

    IRUn and mAc are also pretty bad at reading chat, but they can speak for themselves.

    Basically, after we banned Break we found out about some logs that pointed to Christemo and Strife trying to bait him into getting banned. This kind of muddied the waters with Break's ban, tbh. Now it wasn't as clear cut... we considered unbanning him, even.

    But the main reason Break got banned in the first place (since he already had like 5000 last chances) was that we stopped believing he would ever change; even if he got unbanned for that single incident, he'd go and get himself banned the next day anyway. That said though, baiting him into getting banned in the first place for the lulz is just plain mean and got Christemo and Strife in trouble. Christemo was on the edge of perma just like Break, so he's gone, and Strife got slapped since he was involved.

    There's like 9999+ messages built up every day when I get back home from work, sometimes I read it, sometimes I don't. If it's 1000 messages about League of Legends or FGO I just hit page down.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.
