Warnings should be public
« on: August 20, 2015, 04:06:32 PM »
Posts that recieved a warning should be clearly marked as such, so that others can see if that kind of post is okay or not.

I understand what you're saying, but "what's ok" is pretty clearly marked in the rules.

Keeping the warnings private probably prevents a whole bunch of drama.

I would agree with you if people who accrue warnings accrue them for multiple different behaviors.  My suspicion is that people who accrue multiple warnings do so for repeatedly violating the same rule over and over again.  One would think that one would learn after the first warning.

No it's not at all clear that those rules are applied equally to everyone. It is obvious that to me that they aren't.

My suspicion is that those of the clique go by different rules. This is obvious when moderators click "like" for pure trollposts that don't contribute anything and should be warned.

Eh, okay.  I've handed out plenty of warnings and modboxes to people I actually like.

Posts that recieved a warning should be clearly marked as such, so that others can see if that kind of post is okay or not.

Quote from: The Rules
Not actionable in isolated cases:
Comments such as "You don't know what you're talking about," or "Obviously you have a comprehension problem."
One or two phrases focused on the perceived flaws of other users.
Isolated, incidental, mild namecalling.
Isolated, mild mockery.

You are free to make public any warnings you get.

You know, my kids are always wanting to hear about when their siblings are punished.  Hopefully when they mature they will realize how petty that impulse is.  Maybe its tied up in their sense of how everything in the world has to be just (to their definition of just, mind you) or then "Its not fair".

This seems like an immature "I reported you and now I get to gloat" kind of a thing to me.

This is obvious when moderators click "like" for pure trollposts that don't contribute anything and should be warned.


Does the LIKE button actually serve any purpose?  I complained about it once but now I hardly notice it.

It's purpose is probably to solidify the clique.

No, it is about making moderator favoritism clear and open.
