I believe option 2 is best. The typical discourse of the FC has barely possessed a modicum of intelligence without Generals. This is not to say that they're intrinsic to an enjoyable atmosphere, however they are responsible for one that isn't sullied by the usual suspects who are awfully intent to be annoying pests.

And said usual suspects wouldn't be a problem if people were able to coordinate self moderation via the tools they all have. In particular; the ignore list. It does no good if only a few people use it, because then they're only subject to the annoyance of seeing one half of a squabble. That may even be worse, as you may as well have the whole context if you have to endure it all. In my experience, I'm one of the few who just put the usual suspects on ignore. I'd rather not ignore everyone else, too.

I don't necessarily support option 1, but isn't that a bit unfair Hazeel? The alt attacks happened because a general kicked someone.

And I don't remember, but weren't previous alt attacks also related to people being banned/ostracized from the fc?


You're interpreting the cause and effect wrongly.

If someone is immature enough to pursue attack as a response to their ostracization, that's a solid affirmation of why they should have been ostracized in the first place. If they were in fact innocent/reasonable and a victim of power abuse, then they probably wouldn't retaliate in a way that only acts as a showcase of why they were punished. Because this isn't how reasonable people behave.


In plain speak; don't blame moderators for people being stupid.

Oh, I'm not blaming moderators for anything. But I don't really think mis-interpretting cause and effect wrongly. At the end of the day, even if person x was a deuce all along, they will have alt-attacked only after being kicked/ostracized.

Well... at least that's what history has shown. Maybe x person who is a deuce might alt-attack without being kicked/ostracized? Who knows.


If you're looking at it from a purely cause and effect angle, you're not wrong. Maybe no moderators would prevent that specific problem, too.

But I think the mild annoyance of having to remove kebabs is a sacrifice worth taking if the general discourse of the chat is improved by moderators.
