To clarify, I'm not saying that it's okay to take a picture of the monitor instead, just that in this scenario I don't really care if a PM is shared, since it isn't actually against the rules.I mean if it isn't against the rules to share PMs, fine, but I'm going to be a lot more wary about what I say in PM. Again from what I've experienced even when this isn't an explicit rule most people consider it improper to share PMs without consent. Just because the person is an idiot or a dick shouldn't make it not poor etiquette to do this even if it isn't against the rules. I also don't understand the logic that a photo of the monitor is okay, but a digital screenshot isn't. It just comes off as a bizarre form of logic or rules lawyering to claim that.
Yes, I'm going to make this a rule. As the current person did it before this was added, it won't be punished.
I sent it via Discord first, and by the time I posted the stuff on FiC, he already had the Banned banner, so it kinda felt better to post the 'historical document' of him in his last minutes before the ban.You know FiC allows you to use images saved on your computer right?
I will repeat fifty times the entire Administrative Code as penance.And you call yourself a European! You have shamed yourself, those of your line who came before you, and any generations that may come after!
I have no issue with that choice of rule after the fact, though I also think that given TZG's known tendency to portray himself as a poor and innocent victim of arbitrary oppression, that kind of element would make sure that noone would, you know, feel bad about him.I mean, I do think sharing PMs should be verboten, but if you're going to make literal death threats to people (no matter how edgelord they are), it wouldn't make that much sense to force the people you hurl abuse to stay quiet about it.
its pretty much if it's not ilegal and the other user is ok with it with PMs.I can understand if something explicitly breaks the rules of the forum, but it should probably be up to a mod if something that broke the rules in PM is okay to share publicly considering we have a thread specifically for infractions/bans and why they happened.
On the other hand certain things in PM that would normally be against the rules seem like they should be okay if they're only being shared in PM and all parties are okay with what is being communicated.
