Seriously, why? She has like 2 or 3 active player reports against her for killing people unnecessarily and 2 bans for over escalation in the past week, but her latest ban was only for 1 day? What? Aren’t repeat offenses supposed to INCREASE the time? Over 30% of her 32 bans are for overescalation and she’s still only getting a 1 day ban each time? How does that work? How is that even remotely congruous with the current stance on repeat offenses? I mean if I get escalated to a 1 week ban from a 1 hour ban from 6 months ago, why did she, with 8 un-expired escalation notes in her pocket, get ONLY a 1 day ban on friday, and then on only her 3rd day back (today) get another, only 1 day ban? It makes absolutely no fucking sense. Hell if you want to argue it wasn’t over escalation even though she was falsely using lavaland escaltion to kill, because she was just rebelling as a posibrain mech. she has a history of attacking people in mechs AND breaking silicon policy too!
Edit 9 hours (wait 9 hours?) later:
I said this at the bottom in comment 139 but obviously it’s going to get buried, so I’m saying it again here. This was in response to a private discussion where it was discussed a possible reason as to why Kate gets preferential treatment.
Although that may explain Kate’s behavior, it does not excuse it. We all have problems we gotta deal with, but there is a point at which constantly making mistakes or doing mishaps stops being excusable and becomes a YOU problem. I believe Kate has reached that point.
For those on the outside looking in, it’s not some grand Beestation cabal, she’s not in some inner circle, or anything like that. It has to do with something she posted at one point on the forums, and possibly being given extra grace and chances due to that. But at some point you have to realize what you’re doing is not acceptable in the wider world, and as rule enforcers, there has to come a time when you put your foot down and say enough is enough.
I no longer believe that Kate is acting with bad intentions, but Kate, you need to get your head out of your ass (as I and everyone else has to from time to time) because even though what you’re doing may be okay on a technical level, it’s pissing everyone off.
