67. Just to outline my thinking

- Whether the banning <blocking> offense was justifiable:
That decision must be reserved to the authority the action is reserved. Since the host is forced by circumstances to make these decisions, we must live with these decisions or change the process. Having said that, I will join the ranks of those who feel that banning, time out, un-banning and monitoring is extra work that isn't needed.

I agree with the following members:
- fightthegoodfightnow - free speech is always better than censorship; if an error is made, take all care to see that the error is to the side of liberty
- graham4anything - I don't believe in censorship; me neither
- petronius - anything else beyond the broader ToS and Cs of DU, and nobody should be blocked, ever; bravo, I agree
- and some others who don't favor the idea of blocking for reasons of one or more offensive posts

If you see fit to change the process such that members won't be blocked for offensive posts then rDigital has nothing to apologize/be forgiven for. I really don't care how offensive someone may get telling me that gun-control enables freedom and anyone who carries either open or concealed is a vigilante wannabe. The juries can vote and I can live with that.

-----------------------------------------------

- Whether the member was a productive regular of the Group:
Everyone who participates and stays within the SOP is productive.

- Whether the member participated in a positive fashion in the Group:
Everyone who participates and stays within the SOP is participating in a positive fashion.

- How well-liked...
IMHO, being well liked is non sequitur.


Can we maybe first vote on whether we want to see members blocked at all?
