Reminder: Subreddit Policies, FAQ, Section 8.
- But /u/Other_Redditor broke the rules too!
We have seen an increase in users breaking our rules, specifically about personal attacks, then crying that they were only “responding” to another user doing such to them.
This is a private and voluntary association. When here, you are expected to follow the rules and decorum, or you will be trespassed from the premises. This is not a commune, this is not a public square, we mods are not a government. We have no authority over you. We DO have authority (as operators) over the private property that is this subreddit, and we can exclude you from it pursuant to private property rights and freedom of association. Both cornerstones of libertarianism.
We have also updated mod policy section 4 to include:
Specific actions against users will not be discussed with anyone beyond the mod team, the actioned user, and the reddit admins.
It does not matter what action we took against someone else. You worry about yourself, and your actions. Offenses are not actioned in a vacuum, a users with a prior offense will likely face stronger action than a user who commits their first offense. Either way what happens to the other user is irrelevant to you. Worry about yourself, and your behavior.
