I've come back for a few minutes and noticed all of that controversy going on. That was some of the biggest bullsh!t Ive seen in years. Chill you guys, it doesnt matter if someone gets banned for a week. This is just an online community. YYW is cool, but just because he got banned for 1 week doesnt mean that the whole site has to boycott and make 200 threads about how it happened. If someone here insults you, dont give them a fvck. Again, just online. Why do you care? If you dont like something here, why dont any of you leave?

Did you know that telling people to chill doesn't chill them at all?

Meh. Just a tip.

Why don't you leave? This is the healthiest thing that can happen, is people airing their grievances rather than being tethered to only freely expressing via PMs, which leads to the harboring of resentments and feelings of exclusion.

I did leave :) This is a site Emmarie, just a site. The point is that instead of arguing how it should run, (thats up to the mods and not for you to change) you should either just debate topics or leave. Bottom line is, you deal with the rules or just go away. As the saying goes, square up or square out.

Who are you to tell me how to express myself? I have a right to air my grievances and support others who do. Members have quite a bit of influence on the site about how it is run. Whiners have influenced moderation, so those of us who are more lax can also attempt to express our ideas with the hopes of influencing moderation. Beyond being a debate site it is an ideas website, and members come here for various reasons. At least I debate, more than I can say for *some* members.

I am a mere mortal and can not tell you how to express yourself. Only suggest.

I have a right to air my grievances and support others who do. Members have quite a bit of influence on the site about how it is run.

Emmarie, I am not telling you that saying whats bad about the site is no good. Of course, if you know a way to enhance the site, by all means, say it. But when it comes to banning, that is not something that you should be critiquing. Max knows the site rules better than all of us and when he decides to ban someone, there is always a reason. YYW has violated the TOS and was therefore banned. I dont know why you cant stay calm about that and let Max to his work. You mention how its lazy moderation... Well, when something bad happens, the players are expected to report it. If they dont bother spending 30 second to fill out a form, then its not such a big deal.
At least I debate, more than I can say for *some* members.
Mhm... If you mean me, I have around 40 debates, compared to your 11.
