Again, you are down to debates on the severity of the punishment, but that's up to the individual. Whether it's too severe or not, he posted an insult. The original topic was why he was banned. Now, if you have a problem with the severity of the ban, make a direct suggestion that the conditions of a ban and the length of time of a ban be clearly defined. Either way this original topic has been resolved. He was banned for an insult. There isn't any point in discussing this further.


Well, I see that what I said earlier did not say this clearly, but I meant to say that I thought his very small insult warranted a warning and not a ban, but that I could understand if ioi chose to give him a very brief ban.

As being "down to debates on the severity of the punishment", that's what this was always about. Punishment ranges from nothing, through informal admonition, through formal warning, through one-day ban, three-day ban, etc., through one-month and three-month ban, through year-long ban to permaban.

Saying "well he deserved a ban, so any length of ban is at the discretion of the mod" does not seem right to me. If that is not what you meant, please explain in more detail. If that is what you meant, please justify in more detail.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.
