Historical documents cover the subject in detail.
My biggest issue is the severity and randomness of the bans. Completely inconsistent. It's like they are using a dart board on who they should ban and another dart board for how long the ban should be.
A guy posted a ridiculous tinfoil thread about the CSM, and actually listed CSM 6 with Mittani as chair as the current CSM.
I informed him that he was "fucking clueless and should be permabanned from posting on the internets", which resulted in a 14-day ban by Spitfire with the reason "personal insults". I got what I deserved, I was on a serious shitposting binge, but the randomness is pretty bad.
Their main problem is that they let this shit go on for years and years - once it's deemed acceptable to use language and words you'd never consider using in RL situations it gets ingrained into the community. Once that happens it's hell to get people to stop. Should have stamped out this when it started, they wouldn't have this problem now.

Personal insults are community moderation.
Peer corrective therapy ftw.
Tbh there will be a harsh adjustment period but in the end people will get used to not being douchebags on Eve-O. It will be better for everyone in the end.
You can still call someone an idiot, you just have to be wittier about it. Only difficult if you are shortbus helmet-wearer like Intigo.
Wait are you suggesting that actions and consequences are linked?
No. A Rhinoceros is not a fat Unicorn.
Eve-o forums desperately need a dose of the Hast protocol...
Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.
"You give me the awful impression - I hate to have to say - of someone who hasn't read any of the arguments against your position. Ever."
I don't really see how they propose to clean up the EVE-O forums without starting by banning all the Goon/TEST posters/alts.
