I need clarification for one of the rules listed:

Rule 13: Requested Bans.


I would like to know what this entails. Does this mean users have previously requested moderators to ban other users, and now this request is no longer being tolerated?

No. A request to ban yourself so you come here less.

Why would you need to request to ban yourself? You can use apps that block access to any website of your choosing for 'X' amount of days if necessary. 

Thanks for the response. I just find the answer baffling. I suppose I never saw the appeal to temporarily deactivating your account on Facebook or other websites either.

You can force yourself to bypass the app or the extension because of a strong attachment to habit, but having yourself banned for a signifcant period of time is more of a solid solution - or, well, it was more of a solid solution.

That's fair enough, I guess. 

I suppose if they want time off, they will just have to break the rules to get a ban now, hey? Not that I would encourage such behaviour.



Yay, new rules!...

I didn't read the last ones, and I won't read this ones either. If common sense is not enough to keep me safe from bans, then there's something wrong with either me or the rules.

So, are the requested bans retroactive? Like, are the people that requested a permaban going to be unbanned now?

Wouldn't that take far too much time to go through and unban them all? Not as if they'd actually use their accounts again either

Edit: Besides, I think the mod team removing requested bans/permabans is what caused the problem rather than allowing them in the first place. When you've got users who are like "permaban please" then a week later "let me back" another week and "permaban please" and so on. It just gets silly.

Yeah, that is true. I was just wondering.

It's cool. A simple summarization is that all PC conversation is banned immediately. :P

Nah. They are grandfathered in (unless they ask to be unbanned I guess...) but we aren't going around and seeking them.
