Rule 19: Any hint of drama on the server will result in immediate perm ban with no chance of appeal.
Seriously tho, I've had casual convos shut down because "there's a chance it may cause drama." Like mates, you know shutting down convos is the main cause of drama. Nobody gets hostile until staff say "drop it"
@Pres The only conversations that get shut down before they become out of hand or hostile are excessively religious or sexual conversations, which shouldn't be a problem since this is m i n e c r a f t. And when an argument or debate DOES gets out of hand (The players start using excessive caps or swearing and pull others in) that's when we stop it/move it to private messaging. You're free to debate and argue as much as you want as long as you keep it under control.
The conversation where people were calling gay people mentally ill? That was stopped for obvious reasons. and slushi later had her mute bypass ban revoked after I viewed the logs and found that she had stopped after being told to.
I have a right to believe that gay people have a mental illness if I want to. I am as entitled to your opinion as you are to yours. Just because you disagree with mine does not mean you have shut out my views. The only thing that's hurt in these debates is the right of freedom of speech. Staff need to realize that their views do not set the views of others, and you cannot forcefully oppose them onto other people by simply muting and banning them. smh my head
