All of that really does not stop you from completing the infraction system you took time to develop and include the appeal process and a gateway to contact the admin that applied the sanction. If you have completely abandoned any concept of community governance then there is really no reason for anyone to have to publicly discuss their private account with admins in a thread on the forum. even speeding tickets are handed out using a black and white process that includes an appeal process and a way to contact the official that handed out the ticket. Linden Lab tried it without an appeal process for years but finally put one n place. Many times the nden involved saw ht the were not really seeing the situation for what it was t first glance. Emotions at the moment play a large role in such decisions. I just do not agree that providing the link to the Area17 for a new resident to take their off-topic questions to is cause for an infraction. Many have asked the same thing of other posters with no negative results from any administrator.
