Just caught this on another site -
"Just to clarify in case it isn't obvious.
We use a word filter for certain terms on this website because we have been advised not to let those terms be used on the website.
If users continually try to circumvent the filter then those accounts will be banned.
This is for our own protection as well as yours, please play nice and stick to the rules.
If you do not like the rules then please let me know and I will disable your account."
Straight and to the point.
All I really expect in moderation issues is consistency and communication. If the rules here said "Three spelling mistakes and you're on pre-mod" that would be fair enough if it applied evenly to all. Hootoo site, hootoo rules.

This is a reply to this Posting.
Seems harsh to me, but you're right. A clear policy is vital if you're moderating any website.
Does this mean the beatings will continue ?
Until morale improves, yes
If they're talking of getting 200,000 users here, they need to keep the rules v. simple, non-negotiable and be prepared to tell people to off.
This seems like as good a place as any to bring this up.
Who thinks it should be a criminal offense to violate Terms of Service?
