As I was making the grimdark thread go off topic and it was raised as a suggestion, I am making a topic here. My question is: What are the protocols in dealing with forum members who say hurtful things to other members? I understand the current modus operandi is to clean up the hurtful posts, but to otherwise allow the poster to remain. I don't think this is a good way to deal with it, because it sidelines the people who were actually the target of said hurtfulness. The fact that it can stem from other things than outright malice does not make it better. Everyone has their issues, but I don't think some people should be allowed to get their issues over others. There has to be a line after which there are consequences. It has been said permanent banning is not something that will be done here, but I do request there be some sort of option between letting things go as they have and permabanning.
