As I pointed out before, I have no problem at all with that, freedom is the freedom of the others and respect is the most important rule of all. I just want to be able to understand why someone is banned. If it is for a good reason, no problem.sjm wrote:This is a common misconception. Freedom of speech and free speech/free press is not the freedom to be a jerk, nor does it require that that sort of behaviour be tolerated. It also does not force anybody to have to give you a platform to air your views.Tj Shredder wrote:[There are also rules also for a free press, to be called free... I have no problem in general if people can be banned for breaking rules, but I would want to know what rules are broken. especially in this case...!
In this case it is important, as 1eqinfinity has a role as OSC synth contributor. As participants we are interested to be able to communicate of course.
I was curious, and went to his profile to see if there are posts of him, which would explain it, but there nothing is accessible. A short notice on the profile like xxx has been banned for breaking rule "y" might also be helpful.
It would teach all users to be careful about what you post. I simply wish a bit more transparency for those decisions.
And I have read threads which made me wonder why the moderators would not intervene earlier, but in 1eqinfinitys case it is beyond my imagination...
