My rules for OzPolitic
Sep 12th, 2017 at 2:46pm
 
Given the recent spate of bannings at OzPolitic, I felt that I should come up with my own rules.

Please provide feedback, suggestions and opinions.
--------------------
Rules for OzPolitic:

Rules prescribed for the provision of debate, conversation and argumentation on OzPolitic forums. Rules for banning members on OzPolitic.
--------------------
OzPolitic values freedom of speech and provides a platform for the free expression of speech about any issue. People may, subject to the rules prescribed below, discuss or raise any issue they wish.

Any person who:

1)      blatantly vilifies, insults or profanes another forum member using expletive language, and, does not, within forty-eight hours of making said post, apologize for or retract said post, or express regret for making such post; in all which cases to be done publicly on the Forum,

shall be banned from OzPolitic for a period of seven days. This provision generally applies in cases where the vilification or insult is blatant and continual, and takes course over several posts within a forty-eight-hour period; and said comments do not relate to the topic of the thread. A simple ‘once-off’ comment does not usually warrant a ban.

Any person who:

1)      insults or vilifies personally and directly the family and/or member of said family of any forum member, notwithstanding that said forum member brings up the issue of their family,

shall be banned from OzPolitic for a period of three months. Said provision applies in cases where another forum member intentionally and blatantly insults the family or a member of the family of any forum member. This applies irrespective of whether or not a forum member has raised the issue of their family.

Any person who:

1)      posts any nude image (which reveals in nude, either one of both of a person’s ‘private parts’), whether male or female,

shall be banned for a period of seven days. This applies only to adult photos.

Any person who

1)      posts any nude or pornographic image of an under-aged person

shall be banned indefinitely.

Any person who:

1)      reveals any personal information, including addresses, phones numbers, emails, the real names etc. of another forum member without the latter’s consent,

shall be banned from OzPolitic indefinitely.

In addition, any GMod (if the term is correct) who makes a decision to ban any forum member on OzPolitic must:

- clearly and in detail explain why said GMod has banned the member, on a thread specifically related to said member and the banning (and publicly)

The GMod shall provide evidence of postings made by the member and explain what member said that constituted a breaking of rules.

If the GMod cannot justify it, or do not have time to write a detailed report, then the ban shouldn't go ahead.
---
A ban shall not be valid if a report/explanation has not been made on the Forum.

Many Members are unable to post here in Feedback, Caesar, so can I suggest you also post that in Relationships where almost 100% of the Membership can post?

Then there's the practicality of endless reports!

We don't need more rules.

We need people to allow the Moderators to be empowered and to have their discretion and decisions respected.

Stop the attempts by some who seek control through moderator bashing and complaining stirring up discontent. We all should just get on with being members that post leaving matters of the forum governance to those appointed. Quietly accept the decisions of the moderators who usually only issue short duration suspensions as a worst case.

I support all of Caesar's above Amendments to the Rules with one exception.

Insult, name-calling, and abuse should only be acted upon if the target of this abuse complains about it.

Here I don't entirely agree.

A general clue as to why someone was suspended should be enough.

Also, the terms 'suspended' and 'banned' should be used correctly and not as they are being used now.

Maybe the mods can have their own fashion statement as well?
