For mastodon.social users:

Dogpiling and harassment are off-limits no matter how justified you think you are. The rules are for everyone.

Strongly considering adding screenshot-dunking to the code of conduct as well. We don't need that culture here.

@Gargron a large number of users responding critically to a poorly thought out staff decision is dogpiling, huh?

@maolfunction No, what's happened with Wil Wheaton is dogpiling.

@Gargron it's more like people are seeing a dangerous precedent being set by the way staff on .cloud and .social handled the whole situation that will benefit abusers, but we'll agree to disagree it appears.

@maolfunction .cloud's decision to suspend wil has indeed benefitted abusers in this case.

@maolfunction He was not actively harming anyone. He has clarified about the blocklist thing. You have every right to suspend him from your instance, but chasing him off from someone else's server through dogpiling was wrong.

@Gargron @maolfunction He repeatedly made frivolous reports and HIS VERY PRESENCE MADE PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT YOU REPEATEDLY FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE.

NO ONE CARES IF HE FOLLOWED THE RULES.

IF SOMEONE'S ABUSIVE EX COMES INTO THEIR PLACE OF WORK, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER THEY FOLLOW THE RULES, THEY ARE STILL CAUSING HARM WITH THEIR PRESENCE.

Please for the love of God try to understand this. He has harmed people. They have a right to be concerned.
