@Fellixe @MatejLach @streetvalkyrie @MarkWarner @DickButt4Prez it's difficult for me to piece together what is going on and a generic term like harassment isn’t helping. Bad people claim harassment all the time. Does @Gargron have a good definition for what his instance considers harassment somewhere?
@FatherMcGruder @MatejLach @streetvalkyrie @MarkWarner @DickButt4Prez @Gargron That is it and I disagree. It was not a good call. If that's the behavior they want on their instance they can have it, but I think it would be advisable for other instances to protect themselves from that kind of sanctioned harassment.
@Gargron @Fellixe @FatherMcGruder @MatejLach @streetvalkyrie @MarkWarner @DickButt4Prez That's because she tried to take a bullet for the dumbass who decided to mute someone for "a few days" because they made a harmless joke directed at a celebrity and then didn't communicate, and it's pretty shitty of you to throw her out there again instead of taking blame yourself, since much of the hate was also directed at you, she just kept trying to do damage control.
@Estrusflask @Gargron @Fellixe @FatherMcGruder @firstname.lastname@example.org @MarkWarner @DickButt4Prez It's not up to you to decide what is a "harmless joke". The person targeted complained of harassment and the instance has clear policies against that.
Instead of blaming Eugen, why don't you just admit that what you really want is different rules for the people you like. That is they can harass, since you like them, these are "harmless jokes". Now if somebody sent a "harmless joke" their way - harassment!
@Estrusflask @Gargron @Fellixe @FatherMcGruder @email@example.com @MarkWarner @DickButt4Prez He did not broke any rules, so what you guys did wasn't right. Simple as that. If he's done something not nice in the past, that doesn't mean you have the right to chase him everywhere for the rest of his life. Especially if he apologized, which it does seem so.
I just hope your personal life is as pristine and flawless as you expect of others.
He did something that harmed several hundred people and cut them off of their support networks and has downplayed and misrepresented the damage he did without trying to undo it.
He is a source of emotional discomfort to many. He makes no effort to change his harmful behavior.

Asking the trans women of the instance to ignore that showed a disregard for the safety of people on his instance. Doubly so when he's listening to an ostracized rapist and abuser about bofa.lol's supposed transitioning instead of several trans women who aren't rapists.
