It is a good thing. I mean, members should have a say in who gets banned. Especially when there is a member who harasses members on a daily basis. It's completely unneceptable.

Members should have a say to the extent that they have a right to make their case to the moderator. But, the moderator does and ought to retain the final say on who is or is not banned, and to the extent of any ban.

I can think of one perfect candidate to be banned forever based on toxicity. I can think of another right after that. I'll bet the forum agrees with me too, at least a majority of active members would.

Agree to disagree. The community should make the choice.

People who PM and threaten to "rip them to pieces" should be banned.

Yeah, it's going to happen. This idea has been tossed around a lot, and it got some traction with Bluesteel in the past, but it died off because moderation ultimately addressed the problem.

But I don't think they're going to in this case... so we're going to need to explore other options.

The Jews. Thats why

It's always the jews.

If that literally ever resulted in toxic members being less toxic, then we wouldn't even be having this conversation. But it doesn't.

You can say it's going to happen all you like, but it is absolutely not going to happen.

Plus, the polls I've taken recently suggest DDO strongly endorses current moderation practices, so the desire you perceive for this kind of drastic change just doesn't exist.

YYW, there is no good reason, other than personal vengeance, to implement this policy. You are mad at Zarro. So what? Report her and move on. If you think there is a good reason to ban her, make your case to Max.

I know.

But it's not just me. We have toxic members who feel the need to start drama, and then can't handle the outcome of it. Then they play the victim.

I don't really care what polls said at one point in time. When you've got debates between toxic members creating toxic environments for others, opinions change to follow the shift in the status quo.

But I'm not going to argue with you about whether it's "going to happen" or otherwise. The community will decide, and this is an idea whose time has come.

YYW, the poll literally closed today. All responses were collected over the last 5 days. It's not "one point in time;" it is the community's view of the here and now, and you're out of step with that view.

But I'm not going to argue with you about whether it's "going to happen" or otherwise. The community will decide, and this is an idea whose time has come.
