Rule 10 turned out to be what I thought it would. A well-intentioned idiotic mistake that's going to be misused. It makes it too easy for mods to moderate people for anything. The majority of what people say are generalizations because they're opinions based on preference or anecdotes. The rule can't be applied across the board so it requires mods to judge whether it's okay or not not based on their opinion. The result of this is alot of questionable bans.
The mod team is unwilling to debate or discuss moderations. As far as I can tell, the team is unwilling to walk back these kind of bans. Due to all this and in my opinion, the forum is headed in the wrong direction and I rather not be around when shit hits the fan. I'm gonna take a break from here for however long. I like most of ya and this community but I like being able to speak my mind without fear of idiotic bans more. I'm not asking for a permaban. I'll come back when shit is better and the mods are open to debating their decisions.
