Ok going at this in a different approach, I ask is it bannable to join a steam group and why? Is it an appropiate choice to permaban a group of people and do for all the servers? why? Define slander. Define free speech on this site in your opinion. (I need everyone to answer this in their own words not just the higher ups or whats posted on the rules but you could add those to your post.) Think very hard about these cause it could have some unintended consequences later down the road. While it maybe true that there are people in the group who had ill intent against you. Most of these 52 people's only crime is joining a steam group, think about that. If you don't believe me go to http://bans.plaguefest.com/index.php?p=home and advance search "Steam Community Group Ban (PlagueFestisGAY)" under the "reason" section. I still think it was unfair to globally permaban 51 people with no previous ban records at all. (correct me if this is wrong if need be) I also think it could have been taken positively and handled better by noticing the group and maybe talking to those people in there first? Like I said I'm not looking for a ban or unban currently. I'm looking for answers, some of them partially answered by a small sample of people in this site/community. Also btw if anyone tells me I've already posted an unban protest already at least I think but this thread is mainly for the 53 people banned as well as other people who have been or will be banned for merely joining a steam group no matter how harmless or hurtful a group may be. Will probably ask or answer more questions down the road on this thread but it won't be as accelerated as the last one was. Previous thread here: http://plaguefest.com/threads/globally-permed-for-joining-a-steam-group.10233/ Try not to personally attack or gang up on one person. Lets all have a good discussion. ^^ PS: is there a site suggestions area I can go to? like how to make the site or servers better or give admins advice or something? I see a tutorial area but I don't feel like writing a long post or making a video with only me talking and possibly boring people I'd rather actively discuss with people.
