    New additional shoutbox guidelines

    The shoutbox is for chatting, conversations and for relaying information concerning unfolding events (especially chess related, other sports or events where there is sufficient interest). It is not for:

    * extended monologues
    * strident soapboxing about political or religious non-chess issues. Take it to a thread.
    * transcription of song lyrics just because you happen to be listening to a given song. If you want to inform the forum about what you are listening to do so at http://chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=398.

    As a general principle if you have made ten shouts unrelated to chess in a row with no-one responding you should wait until someone does. There will be some exceptions (for instance if relaying event updates of interest to members or answering complex questions).

    We will not be comma-counting on this but if individual shouters persistently go way outside these guidelines they risk suspensions from the shoutbox.

    antichrist made an unfavourable remark about another member's use of the shoutbox in the shoutbox although he had been explicitly warned to keep such comments to threads where they were relevant and the discussion had been initiated by others.

    antichrist is therefore suspended from the shoutbox for 1 day.

    antichrist repeated this behaviour today in a clearly trolling fashion.

    antichrist is banned from the shoutbox for two weeks.

    antichrist banned for a week for off-topic posting about issues to do with religion.

    Furthermore this is lenient as he has made many trolling posts and some very insensitive ones in the last several days.

    When his ban expires the remainder of his shoutbox ban (about five days) will be reinstated.

    antichrist again banned for a week following previously announced policy of zero tolerance for his use of off-topic religious references. It was only a one-line aside or the ban would have been much longer in view of his continuing failure to get the message.

    Above ban on antichrist revoked since the off-topic religious reference was in fact in a post from his from 2007 that he requoted and not a fresh off-topic religious reference. I did not realise this because of antichrist's customary failure to use the quote function properly.

    He has been asked to remove off-topic religious references when quoting any of his old posts in the future.

    It is customary to give ursogr8 a present around this time of year by reducing whatever ban he has foolishly incurred in the previous months.

    I have lifted his current ban, which was due to expire in a fortnight, however given his failure to learn from Santa's previous benevolence, this Xmas present comes with a very small sting in the tail.

    In view of his frequent breaches of CC rules and attacks on the site (in particular his ongoing and unfactual criticism of CC moderation elsewhere - his trolling "ban quota" gibberish and the like) ursogr8 is excluded from the Coffee Lounge.

    This exclusion is permanent unless violations of CC rules by ursogr8 elsewhere are retracted, desisted from and cleaned up to our satisfaction.

    antichrist banned for a week for offtopic religious references again, this time an analogy about Creationists in the Toolbox-Detox thread.

    Again this is lenient as sixteen antichrist posts have been deleted by the mods in the past week.

    antichrist's ban was to expire in 3-4 days.

    However he has chosen to rant about CC moderation elsewhere at length, and while most of it is just bilious personal drivel that we are struggling to translate into English, he has made some misleading claims about moderation on this site. He should have waited until his ban expired and then discussed his concerns here.

    antichrist's ban has therefore been reset to 10 days, effectively adding slightly under a week to his original ban.

    antichrist banned for a week for a post containing profane and sexual content on the main board (and for dedicating same post to a poster who is legally a minor, although he was not abusing that poster at all, far from it).

    Additionally antichrist receives a 24-day suspended ban which will be added automatically to any further ban he receives in the next three months, or imposed if at any time in the next three months he creates too much work for the moderators by posting too many rubbish posts that in our view require deletion.

    I would like to remind all posters that the deliberate evasion of the swearing filter is not permitted for any reason.

    firegoat7 unbanned as he has resigned as admin on the other forum, finally ending a shambolic reign in which he several times banned various CC members arbitrarily and usually on the basis of false assumptions, and failed to protect CC members from defamation and incorrect abuse about their personal lives. Indeed, quite often he joined in.

    I did note on 05-08-2008 that in view of firegoat's tardiness in complying with our conditions for unbanning him, he would not necessarily be unbanned when he did comply.

    However as a sign of more goodwill than he deserves (which is nonetheless still very little) I have decided to unban him anyway.

    It is my hope that he will learn from this experience and never seek, accept (including tacitly) or execute any position of power anywhere on the internet ever again.

    If he does and our active members are again unfairly affected, even once, he will most likely be permanently and irrevocably banned from here.

    Suspended ban applied as antichrist has again made false comments about this site's moderation elsewhere despite being explicitly warned on 19-12-2009 that he would probably be banned for at least a month if he continued doing this.

    antichrist banned for a month.

    I have been banning Axiom hydras on a regular basis over the past 2 months, the most recent of which about a week ago.

    antichrist banned for two months for encouraging shoutbox flood attacks on this site by a banned former member, and for excessive trolling over the last couple of days (including towards a member he had been explicitly warned not to even do anything resembling trolling towards).

    A reduction of this ban to five weeks with the remainder suspended will be considered if antichrist does not breach any site rule in any comments elsewhere during this time.
