In spite of this, however, I am still receiving appeals. SWST has asked to be allowed a venue where he and Mike can both present their cases before me. Mojo has asked for a relative's account to be unbanned. And Mike has even said:I will still host the website, update the board software, periodically delete spambots, and other necessary administrative tasks that the moderators cannot do, but I'm done trying to enforce a code that the community has stopped believing in. I am therefore walking away from my position as a court of last appeal and away from the helm of this ship.
I'd like to make it clear that I have stepped away from making decisions on how to run the board. I'm not interested as serving as a court of last appeal anymore, not when the community disagrees with me on how the board should be run.Mike DiCenso wrote:But the matter is now in JMS' hands. He can reverse the ban as he has done in the past for others, notably SWST, or he may chose to enforce it, and or even extend it.
It is entirely up to you, here on this board, to decide how to run things. At the moment, everything has been left in Mike DiCenso's hands, since Praeothmin decided to turn in his badge right before I did.
If you want there to be anything else beyond that, you need to have a discussion about that, here and now; and it's probably well past due that you have a conversation about the board rules, enforcement policies, and so on.
