After my first 7 days suspension on April 2018, I raised HERE some questions related to the proper use of chat rooms to avoid defamatory actions clearly not compatible with the fair harmony of the community and with our Code of Conduct.
In that occasion, indeed, I noticed and I’ve experienced on my person that while a rude but extemporaneous opinion given during an open debate through a comment can lead to a 7 days suspension, a purposeful, deliberate and reiterate public senseless accusations, perpetrated through public chat rooms, which should be aimed to different scopes, had been tolerated and allowed by the community.
On May a related very useful discussion was raised by Robert Frost with the following OP: Is CRUDE healthy?.
Notwithstanding these discussions, the unfair use of chat rooms has gone on; here some example regarding my person from CRUDE public chat room
1) On July 2, 2018
Recently I was suspended again for 14 days because I engaged “in rude, nonconstructive comments with other users”. Here is the message received from Moderators Team to notify the suspension
Even if mine was a defensive action, I think that the decision for the suspension by the Moderation Team, as for the first suspension, was totally right since my behavior was an infringement to our Code of Conduct.
What I can’t really understand is:
Why are the user suspension criteria applied for unfair comments on the main site currently not applied for unfair use of public chat rooms?
My opinion is that these infringements to our Code of Conduct through chat rooms discussions should be taken into great consideration and prompt intervention by Moderation Team to avoid that users under attack are forced to defend by themselves and to avoid unpleasant escalations and subsequent long time suspensions.
Please feel free to express your thoughts about that issue in the most open and frank way.
