Making this thread because it seems like the other one is about cT specifically while I had questions about general mod policy that's related to involuntary restrictions on users. If mods feel it fits better in the existing thread, please feel free to merge it in. So in that thread seebs said (quoting so I don't have to keep tabbing back) And I had a couple of questions about this. Is this the opinion of the whole mod team or just some of them? And will users be notified privately in the future of involuntary mod actions taken on them, whether or not there's a public announcement? To be clear, I don't have a problem with involuntary restrictions if other methods have been tried first and haven't worked, but I did want to express that the public announcement element does carry a feeling of group shaming or punishment. I don't think the mods intended that, but I don't think anyone would react to news of an involuntary restriction gracefully if they first see it in public, and I was interested in knowing a little more about the reasoning behind this.
