    Ok I guess we need a test to determine if all viewpoints are still safe. Here I go, Liberals are dumb and tumblr is Liberalism times two.
    Also communists are stupid.

    Please no ban me.

    But Papa Highwon literally said it wasn't to censor people, just to have a back-up policy when someone repeatedly proves to be nothing but a detriment for the community, e.g. trolling, causing drama, etc., etc. incessantly - You're still allowed to have your own views and opinions and even *gasp* express them.

    Papa Highwon the man himself even said that this was gonna be used rarely, and seeing as it requires a lot of evidence and reason before it can take effect don't expect it to hit you unless you go all-out on being a deliberate jerk (y)

    Seems fine to me if it is employed in practice as described here.

    Though, I'd like to know:
    The latter clause pretty clearly refers to rule breakers, but the first part could be applied to cases where people game the system and the rules to get others punished/warned by virtue of the rules sanctioning it.
    Far as I'm concerned, staff intervention is a source of negativity if the intervened against party feels unjustly treated.
    Am I to understand that this policy could be used against someone if they were to use the rules malevolently against others (i.e. toxic gameplay but forum-side)?

    2) In terms of "players who continually instigate, form baseless arguments" - what would class as "baseless arguments" (bad wording?) and "instigating"? I understand the concepts but in relation to these rules, some exemplary examples to exemplify aforementioned would be appreciated.

    I'm rating you dumb because the trolling attempt itself was dumb, not the message.

    Already is, its under metagaming. record a demo and prove they were the one opening the door by looking at it ez bans

    anyone else wondering how long it is til smor catches one of these bans for constantly calling staff nazis lel.

    Can we finally be done with the stupid cringe kids that blast the "fuck highwon" 24/7 for no reason other than to try and gain approval for the people who left on 1/11? News flash, not a single staff member that left that day gives a flying fuck about you or anything you preach. Go home.

    I'm looking at you Aarow.
