I think both of these paragraphs are the healthiest, most mature attitude for a community to have.quickdraw3457 wrote:He served his time before and came back. Not every ban is permanent, we aren't in the business of perma-banning people from our community willy nilly.
This recent behavior is inappropriate but not ban worthy based on what I've seen. I recommend just avoiding players you don't enjoy playing against for now.
A lifetime ban is a big step, and there's only one person who's ever warranted it.
Good moderation takes restraint, and that's hard when someone can be a bit toxic. Even the person banned for a year should be welcomed back, if he so choose.
Escalating length of bans is the best way, IMO, for repeated violations.
But an attempt to engage in conversation and then a "well, you don't like me and I don't like you" quit is maybe a bit annoying, but not egregious.
Thanks for the even-handed decisions, quickdraw, and for communicating about it via this post (instead of people wondering why he's back and being ignored). Kudos
