There is no "witch hunt" when some posters actively seek to erode the quality of posting here. Long threads with pages of responses used to be a result of genuine political discussions. Regardless of how inane I thought some of those moments were, I pine for their return. Nowadays, long threads are almost exclusively flame wars or troll marathons and it really is a shame.

Oh good lord. I've been trying to stay out of this so people can't try to accuse me of being the cause of trouble from Hamilton and co. but you're just being ridiculous.

I'm not really replying to this since you people seem beyond help, but for non-trolls it may be of interest to know that Dave moderates this board, not us moderators.

He is much more tolerant than I could ever be, that's for sure.

You have at least ten unfortunate incidents on record, including incidents after you were warned by PM about previous incidents.  I know, because I remember being the one who talked to you by PM.

They were a while ago. Since then, I tried to refine my posting and avoid personal attacks, but I finally lost my temper with Marokai after he wrote extremely condescending and insulting posts against Mint and Einzige. I shouldn't have taken the tone I did, and I shan't take it again.

With all due respect, "condescension" is subjective. I made probably one snipe at someone, but the harshest I got in that thread was calling Libertas' philosophy on lawmaking "immature and shortsighted." Hardly deserving of a life sentence in my opinion.

You know you've posted worse than that before. I'm not going to start another fight here though, so kindly refrain from this line of discussion.

That's very vague and sound like it could be applied wherever one chooses and disregarded wherever one chooses. Got a cafeteria system going here where you pick and choose what stays and leaves. What's for dessert?

Note that the system is undergoing a custom upgrade that will make several upgrades and changes to the mod system.

- All posts reported and moderated are now given a rating from 1 to 10 based on the "badness" of the post.  These ratings accumulate (sum) into a category called "Infraction Points".

- You can now see on your profile page the number of reported posts, the number of moderated posts, and total infraction points (visible only by account owner).

- You can now see a list of moderated posts with moderator action, post rating, and reason shown below the moderated post.  Just click on the number of moderated posts on your profile page.

- An automated system is being developed to set accounts into states of "Warning", "Mod Review", and "Banned" when the number of infraction points exceed certain thresholds (to be determined).

- Infraction points will expire three months after mod action was taken.  Posts moderated prior to Monday of this week have not been awarded any infraction points.

- Warning messages (PM) will be sent when you near the thresholds.  Posts will no longer be included in these PMs, rather you can view your posts that received moderator action from a link on your profile page (link will be included in PM).

Note that this is essentially adding another dimension to the existing system, providing more information for the user, and some additional automation to help the moderators.  The system still maintains flexibility in the ability to appeal mod actions.  As always, suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Dave

Also, as of now, here is the partial guideline we've come up with for post moderation:

1 - Profanity, Empty Quote that is considered spam
2 -
3 -
4 -
5 -
6 -
7 -
8 -
9 -
10 - Nudity, extreme spamming (ogis-type spamming), Vile personal attacks, death threats

I've said this in the other thread, but Inks is still saying this is a list that multiple people came up with when it really isn't Smiley

Dave moved it, stickied it, and added to it, so I just assumed that it had his blessing.  And for what it's worthy, I've been doing all profanity as 1.

FYI:

Currently at 50 and 75 "points" you get automatic mod review, and at 100, you get "muted" which is exactly what it sounds like -- you lose posting abilities until Dave can review the situation.

Of course, there's still a 3 month expiration date on your infractions.

I hope you're not referring to realistic death threats here... because this lists reads like an inverted case of murder, arson & jaywalking.
