Threats on the Southern National server

Threats on the Southern National server
February 25, 2011 03:38PM
What is the Southern National policy on people making threats in private messages and forum posts on the SN server? I heard SN can be legally responsible if the threat is carried through. That is how administrators of other websites are looking at it.

Maybe Counselor Griff, Kevin Lewis or Rob Williams can answer this for you Karen. I don't know that the SN can be held responsible, but all these threats can be saved and printed out as evidence if anything actually happens to someone.

For terroristic threats, and especially for sexual threats against a minor, you should be banned for a year, if not longer, from any SN event or function.

***Thread moved to related list***

The forum guidelines pertain to posts on the public forum (not private) and it doesn't "currently" apply to PMs. However, we (BoD) are discussing changing the policy on threats. Our next meeting is Wednesday March 2nd @ 8pm, and we will have more info then. Check out the notes from the meeting on this forum list for more info.

There is a thread in the Private Discussion list that is discussing this very topic.....and I'm sure somewhere else on the forum, since there are various threads that pertain to the same topic.

As of now the policy is...if a threat occurs on the public forum (not private, not PM) and is voted in violation of guideline, then a warning is sent out. If the user violates a guideline again within a 90 probationary period, then they are banned for 30 days.

So, we are looking at have steeper penalities for guideline #3.

I'm suggesting an immediate ban for threats within public forum, private forum, and PM. Length of the ban: ????
Additional consequences should be having the user prohibited from entering any SN sanctioned tournament for a period of time. However, this could be difficult on TDs who don't really know who is banned.

SN...legally responsible for threats?

I’m with Don on not knowing how the SN could be legally responsible for threats. My knowledge on the subject and $1.75 + tax will get you a small cup of coffee at Starbucks.

[wiki.answers.com]

I think it would be a very difficult question to answer globally.

I do have a non-legal opinion that threats and other personal attacks are more harmful to the SN than mere profanity.

#1 priority should be "attempting to discover reality again"
Re: Threats on the Southern National server

Be careful, Mike.

Guideline #3 does contain the following:
Hate speech: Extremely inflammatory comments directed at a particular ethnic group, sexual orientation, gender, religion, etc. are unacceptable and unwelcome

Although, I personally wouldn't interpret what you said as "extremely inflammatory". Just keep it in mind next time you want to comment on my personal beliefs. In case you're interested in further reading on this topic, check out Proverbs 17:5.

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

Nice. If you choose to quote scripture, it doesn't bother me.

"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
