Garmr has been indefinitely banned from mafia games for posting moderator communications in a mafia game and for violating the discussion of replacing out rule. He had been banned previously for very similar behavior.

Do not post moderator communications. There are some rules on this site that we have for mafia games that are to make them more enjoyable (toxicity, etc.) and some that are to preserve the integrity of games. This is the latter. We cannot afford to allow any wiggle room or leniency on repeat offenses of the latter type.

As a reminder: do not discuss ongoing games.

Alisae has been banned from Discussion forums for one week for abusive behavior in this post.

As a reminder to all, personal attacks are not acceptable, and a user’s history is taken into account when determining moderator action.

RadiantCowbells has been banned from Mafia forums for two weeks due to a pattern of toxic behavior in mafia games, most recently in Doubles Mafia. They will need to be replaced in any games they are currently in.

mastina has been banned from Mafia forums for one week due to a pattern of toxic behavior in mafia games, most recently in Doubles Mafia. They will need to be replaced in any games they are currently in.

These bans are holistic in nature; the incident in Doubles Mafia is only the most recent for both users. It is not the cause, in and of itself, for these bans.

We would like to remind all users that inciting toxicity, participating in toxicity, and escalating toxicity are all considered to be unacceptable behavior by the administrative staff. The fact of someone else breaking a rule does not give you license to do so yourself, and responding disproportionately is the greater offense.

Persivul has been indefinitely banned for continuing to make remarks intending to offend others, as established by his pattern of posting. Additionally, these posts are unacceptable under the prohibited viewpoints rule. He has a lengthy report and ban history, which has been relied on to reach the severity of the ban.

Alts/hydras also banned: Squirrelly, puppymonkeybaby, Rabid Schnauzer

EspeciallyTheLies and all associated alt accounts have been banned from joining new games for 14 days due to posting in a game after she was force-replaced by the moderator. Due to the fact that the user broke this rule under an alt account after being warned for similar behavior under their main account, we are forced to out that particular alt account.

CooLDoG has been indefinitely banned for inciting and justifying violence as documented beginning here, continued espousal of racist ideology, and use of prohibited racial epithets. CooLDoG also attempted to delete the most recent occurrences of these latter offenses from the record in an explicit attempt to evade moderator review. Indeed, CooLDoG has violated nearly every conduct rule to some extent or another at some point.

CooLDoG will need to be replaced in all active games. This extends to all alt and hydra accounts as well:

Red Dragon
Infinite Canine
Stop Getting Banned
Stop Getting Banned Again

The moderation team wishes it known that incitement to violence, wishing harm on another, or threatening same are gross violations of our terms of service. Other users are advised to curtail this behavior immediately.

springlullaby has been indefinitely banned for defending, justifying, and advocating human rights violations, including the persecution of religious and cultural minorities. For example, here, here, here, here, here. springlullaby has a long history of hostility, abusive behavior, and contempt for the rules. She has had many warnings, public and private, and has been banned multiple times in the past year for her conduct.

Zulfy has been banned for 180 days. While investigating this matter, the Moderation Team found evidence of Zulfy advocating for the subjugation of minority populations. This constitutes a pattern of favoring religiously- and culturally-based oppression, which is unacceptable. For example: here. Given lack of prior actionable offenses, Zulfy's ban will be for six months. Upon return, continued similar conduct will result in a indefinite ban.

Zulfy and springlullaby must be replaced in all games. This includes the following alts:
Zulfy
Hicky Zackey Zookey
springlullaby
crotte crotte
teetea

Human rights are incontrovertibly being violated in Xinjiang on a daily basis, explicitly intended to erase a culture from the face of the Earth. MafiaScum users are encouraged to debate the facts of current events. While we would not punish users for questioning the veracity of available facts, enthusiastically supporting atrocities is beyond what is acceptable.

If you wish to educate yourself on the facts of the current crisis, we recommend the following accounts:
Amnesty International
Human Rights Watch
The BBC
New York Times

votato has been banned indefinitely in light of additional evidence of sexual harassment. To be clear, it is acceptable to have conversations about "mature" subjects, as they are part of the fabric for everyday adult life. However, we do not tolerate sexual misconduct. votato will need to be replaced in all games:

davesaz has been banned from Discussion Forums for one week for a) posting to insult or offend other users on the site with this post, and b) weaponising the mod team during an argument - here, breaking rule 7 (Another user breaking these rules does not justify breaking the rules yourself.)

Further, he has consistently toed the line in the last few months with the apparent intention of offending and provoking others into actionable behavior while staying just technically within the letter of the rules. This violates the spirit of rule 4, which prohibits pushing those boundaries.

This ban expires in (expired on 2020-08-21 17:30:00)
