I have never supported the speech rules and never would. Why? Because /ignore exists for a reason. You dont ban someone just because the other player is to F'ing lazy to type /ignore whoever. The only thing that would make this a bannable offense is if these messages were getting through even after a player has done /ignore. Since that's not possible, it should also not be possible to ban them.
Just my private opinion why we can't just let people insult others, and let that others use /ignore and relax.
1. Firstly you should use /ignore each time you join the server. Also, you should use /ignore for each aka insults you. He can easily rejoin created another account with long unwritable name while you are ingame and continue.
Maybe there should be another command, like /ipignore. Or even /iprange_ignore_perm.
Just /ignore is almost helpless. There's also no command like /ipmute.
The nearest existing command to use in such situations is /ipban, that's why it's the easiest way to use against people understand nothing.
2. Not sure if you like to use /ignore and know he insults you, called nigger/muslim/cheater or anything else in public chat, others will read that and think if it's right or not. Maybe you prefer to not ignore him and try to clear yourself of a charge. That will confuse you, waste your time and positive spirit and let you go away.
At hte same time your insulter could be well-known as liar, who tries to offend you just for fun or w/e.
That's why my idea was to prohibit and that unfriendly shit.
That's just for your discussion, i'm thinking about my need to impose anything to the community. Each community should have admins they deserved.
If he is spamming with friends list add/remove, then that is different. But again, you dont ban the player, you fix the problem which is a broken system command. There really shouldnt be any ban reasons based on speech alone.
Agreed about fixing in.
But, while it's not being fixed, that sould be punished also.
Same logic as for hacking: You can fix the hacking problem my making the antihack, so why to ban for hacking until antihack is not ready? But we agree (i hope so) to let people banned for hacking, what about /f?
