A month ago I set up a poll regarding how we should treat people who leave comments that are not outright hate speech but are still queerphobic. Here are the results of that poll:
As you can see the "delete comment and (temporaily) block the user" option is the clear winner. With that my process will be the following:
- Any existing negetive comments will be deleted. The users will not be blocked (since many of these are from several month ago, sometimes even years). With the exception of comments that have been replied to.
- Any new negetive comments will be deleted and the user will be banned for one week (or longer if it's a repeated offence).
I have also made a community guidelines page. It's fairly short now as I think everything should be pretty self explainitory but it will be added to as new guidelines are created.
