I think a lot more courtesy should be shown for women regarding invitations to do so, as well as explicitly stated means of getting a mods intervention, although I suppose a ban would be more appropriate for our users.

I'm not sure what you mean by that.

We believe that in most cases, blocking PMs from a user is the most effective way of dealing with inappropriate behavior that is happening via private messages. As mentioned, mods can't actually see the PMs so there's not a lot we can do except keep track of reports in case patterns develop.

Every user page has a "Report Inappropriate User" link at the lower right, and that's the best way of reporting a user if that seems necessary.

Cybersex invitations. I was considering the "allowance" of such lewd activities, alongside measures of a more obvious report or block button, but considering the age of several users here, and the intention to promote a non tinder like environment, I suppose the best option would be an outright ban. Sorry for the confusion.

I do not see any reason to actually cybersex here, we already have several apps that can be used for such purpose without the promotion of Crunchyroll as a Mos Eisley like hive of sexual conduct (Or rather misconduct). Thus I agree that Cybersex should be banned.

#1: Ew

#2: Good. This is the kind of guideline I see on other "debate" related forums. When starting a thread you have to at least offer an opinion on what it is you're posting to establish a discussion. Helps curb threads that are basically just throwing a rock through a window and running away.

For now its been restricted to the Daily Donald thread so there shouldnt be any outside of there.


It's the reason I considered coming back. Noticed there were less Trump threads--figured now's a good time.



Nice rule additions.

rule 1 was much needed to deal with harassment cases.

rule 2 should take care of dailymail / "post a random news of questionable validity that incites a flame war" threads. definitely approve.

In regards to rule #2, I would hope the mods would take each thread on a case by case basis. Otherwise I would think the forum would be pretty devoid of content. For instance if Someone wanted to have a thread to talk about show X, and just labeled it as such. Looking at rule #2 it would be crushed by the mods. However looking through the forums that's 99% of what these threads are...

I would also support anything that gets inflammatory troll "politics" out of General.

Once you establish a pattern, what do you do?

Per Rule 7, it's already against the rules to create alt accounts, especially to get around bans, but the rules only mention that the accounts may be banned on site. What do you do if someone keeps creating new accounts to harass someone? How do you deal with this?

Why do you think that that's funny? What PV said is 100% true. For on this site, in the forums, and for in real life.

Na i was lalughing because i basically said the same thing but was too awkward to keep it so i just edited out.

When he said "I think a lot more courtesy should be shown for women regarding invitations to do so"

I basically said that the beginning of the post was confusing because it made it sound like the modds were going through our pms without permission, and that after i read the bulleted part it was just common sense. Obviously if a user is sending sexual pms against the other users will then they should be banned, that is literally just common sense. and if two people were sexually pming each other there'd be no reason for one to report the other, so the first change doesn't really do anything at all because the mods don't actually look at the pms.

But I agree that that should probably be banned in general, although nobody is going to report another user if they're doing it consensually so the whole point about how it's banned in general doesn't really make sense to me since they don't go through pms without permission
