[DED] A short reminder from the IGS Communications Director

Good afternoon capsuleers,

In recent weeks we've seen an increase in reports regarding personal attacks, nationalist abuse, baiting, racism and unfounded allegations made against a number of GalNET users.

This is a short and direct reminder for those capsuleers who choose to utilize the Intergalactic Summit that there are rules in place, and these rules will be adhered to.

While the Communications Relay Committee tends to take a more passive approach to moderation of the Intergalactic Summit, favoring open freedom of speech and expression, it would appear that a number of independent pilots have taken in upon themselves to take advantage of this.

Please be aware that failure to adhere to the rules laid out by the Communications Relay Committee may result in your pilot CISC being suspended from accessing the Intergalactic Summit either temporarily or permanently, depending on the severity of the breach of communications policy.

In addition to this, temporary or permanent suspension of flight status may also be invoked by the DED in extraordinary cases where warranted.

The Communications Relay Committee encourages anyone who feels that a breach of the rules has taken place to report it through the proper channels. However, please be aware that repeated, targeted reporting against individuals whose viewpoints you do not agree with will be treated as a breach of the CRC Communications policy, and will be actioned as is appropriate.

Please ensure you read and fully understand the CRC Communications policy before utilizing the Intergalactic Summit further.

There will be no questions answered regarding this reminder at this time, however this thread will remain open for discussion.

Regards,


Aux Aliette

Cool! Thanks. It's gotten pretty bad. Maybe this will improve the quality of the Summit. Just maybe.

I don't care what you think, as long as it's about me.

Oh well this is welcomed news. Hopefully it signals a change in course for the igs and not just a Stern reminder.

At no point in that post is there anything that hints at opposition suppression. All it says is get your point across in a polite manner. If you can't do that then I suggest etiquette classes.

Only the quality of posts can improve the quality. This will just force less people to post here. So while it may improve quality for ded and freedom supporters, by eliminating any opposite perspectives, it will degrade to less frequent and less quality posts in general.


People are allowed to have contrarian opinions and are free to express them, in a polite and meaningful way. That is not being referred to by the OP.

Also, claiming that the enforcing of established rules will decrease the number of active posters is a fallacy. The number of active posters has declined because of the ongoing breeches of etiquette as well as breaking the established rules as set forth by the Communications Relay Committee.

Please realize that posting to this forum is a privilege and not a right and that your privilege can be revoked if you are found in breech of those rules.

Feel free to disagree with people, but keep it polite and on point.

Are people that abuse the report system going to be subjected to the same penalties as abberant posters?

Thank you.

Pretty sad that this was really necessary, and I suspect the small handful of people causing this problem for the rest of us (one unnamed person in particular) are too stubborn to change and we will eventually not be seeing them around if enforcement ramps up.

And, it's sad to say it, but nothing of value will be lost.

Couldn't agree more. The blatant level of toxicity and pettiness that's regularly on display on these forums has severely curtailed my enjoyment of it. Thing is, this goes just as much towards the usual suspects as those that poke at them with sticks to get a rise out of them.

If moderation improves, or at the very least actually starts happening (as I have seen very few examples of moderation here despite multiple threads entering the realm of farce and poison) then I might enjoy the place more.

I believe there are several provocative discussion threads that shall be locked and/or deleted from the IGS front page.

I hope the situation will improve now.

Yeah, I'm sure it has nothing to do with this:

Well, I'm thinking that we may have a considerable part to play in this:

Some people may have stopped reporting as much as they used to. I'm frequenting another forum for capsuleers, where a situation occured that looks a bit similar to me: people complained about a lack of moderation, the mods responded that they were not getting reports of bad posts.

Wow. I wish Aliette showed as much regard for the people Kim constantly harasses, hounds, and drives away as for Kim.

After some additional thought, let's see how this plays out. It may be that Aliette intends a new effort in Summit moderation, and Galente kept running while Kim's actually quieted down.
