It really took you guys almost 3 days to decide banning CaptainExplotion was appropriate after his disgusting post. If anyone said what he said about Bernie Sanders or any other Democrat that person would have been banned almost immediately. Let me guess, there is no ideological diversity on the team right now, you're all left-wing nutjobs who actually agree with what he said but knew the optics would be bad if you did nothing
First of all, we don't base decisions on anyone's political ideology. Not a single word about that came up in mod chat. The words Democrat or Republican, left wing or right wing were not mentioned.
Secondly, you seem to have no clue about how we work, so let me make a few things clear.
No matter what the transgression is, (unless it's something that has to be immediately deleted, like a bot spamming porn) we have to discuss it as a group before reaching a decision.
Now you may not know this, but we don't have 100 people on staff, and no one is getting paid for this. Everyone doing this is devoting their own FREE time to it. As such, not everyone is available online 24/7. Because we all have our own lives, jobs, family and friends to balance. One of us is out there fighting forest fires as we speak.
So what this means is that it can take a few days for us to discuss what to do in a particular situation for even one report. Let alone the 15+ we've been juggling in the past few days.
Because when you get a response from another mod in chat, you may no longer be on your lunch break, so you have to wait until you get home later that evening to check and respond. But when you do, that person isn't online anymore. Etc.
Since that report came in, over 15 800 characters were written in mod chat for everyone to process.
Decisions were agreed upon as more information was brainstormed. Preliminary mod notes that were drafted up the first day were modified on the second after input from different members of the staff.
So when we finally finish this one, on our own free time, the last thing people want to see are comments like this.

Especially after you did something similar in that thread, seemingly daring us to perma ban you. And here you are again.
