I would like input from the community and if you could add any of your reasoning, that is welcome. Do not let this become a place to troll or flame each other. Try to keep it together for at least this thread.
MOST IMPORTANT POSTS ITT,
the rest can suck it.

Double posting? Come on.
Necro posting? wow. Why?
These are very minor infractions.
The powers that be, be they one or two individuals, are a board of several administration people, have apparently decided to say nothing of the alleged infractions, so no one learns the application of the rules. Imagine from the players eyes, a player disappears for no apparent reason, and then returns after a certain amount of time. Translate that to real life. For example, all the village knows the police have detained someone but no one knows why or for how long. Then one day they reappear.
The admin needs to institute an announcement policy on these infractions. Much like the police give statements on arrests and cases. The courts announce sentences, etc.
Also, the existence of these infractions seems to be part of the old tactic of making trivial common things "illegal" but very rarely prosecuting them so that no one gives a shit cause it seems like it doesn't matter. Of course it does matter cause the powers that be now have an excuse to selectively prosecute whomever they don't like for these minor offences that virtually everyone is guilty of.
Mods, why not tell us what the ban was for ? Please explain the reasoning. If scotty requested you not to tell us then say that.
Honestly this is the second worrisome sign regarding the new moderation for me (first was the ham-fisted handling of the joke rape threads situation).
Rds, you seem like a decent guy. Please, for Hank's sake, don't go the Twilldo route of moderation.

What's the point of having rules when the reasons for enforcement remain ambiguous? How does that effectively serve the goals of CC's enforcement policy?
(hint: it doesn't).
If you want CC'ers to not do X, then punishments for X, Y, or Z should be publicly announced; otherwise, we have no idea which rules are actually being enforced--nor would we know how many times a somewhat unenforced rule is now being enforced. That information matters, but it's unfortunately being withheld.
(Furthermore, responding with "all the rules are enforced! lololol!" is total BS because they simply aren't for several reasons which have been previously mentioned for the past 3 three years).
