Self-Vetoed -Darth

After “Anything appended to a post in this way must be placed in the Admin field of the post, and the post’s Status must changed to reflect its status.” in Rule 1.7 Gamestate Tracking, add the following paragraph:

If a post, official or otherwise, contains highly offensive material, any Admin may remove it. If a Survivor objects to this, an Admin shall revert the removal.

for Though, and no offence, I do question the naming of this proposal.

for Although the original poster would probably object, unless they were not intending to be offensive.

The legal ability to remove a post from existence using the subjective magic words “I find this highly offensive!”, before restoring it intact at any point in the future, seems a little too tempting to scammers.

It’s also not clear what “remove” means, and how reversible that actually is within ExpressionEngine.

against per the “this is boring” issue. . . .

against I think this is OK, but we need a more explicit definition of what highly offensive means. Furthermore, I don’t think it should be reverted simply by asking it, or the player who posted it in the first place can have it back with not effort.

veto s/v per Kevan; when I said “remove”, I had meant “remove the offensive part”, but it’s too open-to-malicious-interpretation.
