    because my original thread asking people this question was deleted for some reason( likely because of the "off topicness" or i am being censord(the last one is not likely))

    recently 2 members were banned over problems on discord. this decision was controversial with members either disagreeing or agreeing with the decision. i created this thread to see what people think,but it got deleted so i recreated it.

    so should members be banned for bad behavior outside of the forums.

    Disclamer: re uploading does not count as what there doing is plagiarism.

    No.

    But the mentioned users weren't banned just for "bad behavior outside the forums". They were banned after repeated offensive behavior toward some users, right here, on the forums.

    The Discord incident was simply the last straw.

    But wait? How was that the last straw? If it was the last straw, that means that they got banned for an incident outside of the forums.

    Kill this thread

    I though this was already over

    But i agree, people should not be banned outside the forums, it would be like if i crashed Nadeox1's Lamborghini, i would get banned on this site or something.

    I love how people like to spend their time arguing semantics and making a big fuss about something absolutely irrelevant: behavior of the banned guys was sanctionable, even if the "last straw" also had consequences outside this forum.

    Just go check some of the profiles of the users they've been "cyberbullying".

    Jesus Fucking Christ get over it people, I know this forum is full of underageb&s and other cancer but you can't be THIS retarded. If user X is being a asshole on this forum or the Discord or whatever related to this forum, he can get banned, easy as that.

    Not that I agree with some bans here though.

    I mean, sure no!
    Discord and the forums is an other "thing"
    Because, what's next? Being banned in-game?

    Mohammed giving-soup-out-to-the-homeless Abdul get over it people, I know this forum is full of shills and other great people but you can't be THIS intelligent. If user X is being a nice guy on this forum or the Discord or whatever related to this forum, it doesn't matter, easy as that.

    Not that I disagree with some bans here though.

    Oh boy...please, have these types of complaint threads stopped, but...if I had to answer, simple: If someone is acting aggressively on some other forum, textchat, etc, would you really want that same person to be on the forum you own, and risk a fight over two or more people? I'm looking at this from the dev's point of view, and that Is why I see that they banned people for offsite things...

    Disclamer: this is not just about the inertia and direct_ua being banned.
    this is about anyone being banned for problems outside the forums.
    since it could happen again
