In this thread, I'm inviting everyone to ask me questions about what our anti-harassment rule covers, including what actions would be considered harassment or not. You can speak hypothetically or from experience. Note that we will only intervene under special circumstances.

Although this rule looks strict on the outside, it only strictly prohibits behavior that's completely outlandish and outside of the norm, so business as usual should continue. Harassment is a term that's used in extreme situations, as extreme as an abuse report would be. The fact that we made a post isn't because we're having any kind of crackdown. We aren't becoming a kindergarten, where your teacher would slap your wrist if you called someone an asshole. This is to manage the dark side of the human condition.

Some examples of harassment:
  • Repeated bullying and badmouthing about being a recruit
  • Telling someone to kill themselves and being serious about it
  • Shit talking someone publicly to the point that it gets reasonably out of hand and toxic
  • Discriminating against someone in an uncalled-for way for being gay
Some examples of behavior not categorized here:
  • Being an asshole to a friend who understands the jokes and the context they're in
  • Calling Sui an uglyass bitch (because he probably wouldn't care, the lil bitch :^) )
  • Calling HG a "Christian Community" (it's a fucking meme)
  • Getting into a small argument with someone and accidentally calling them a dick. If you guys can cease arguing and resolve your differences without any issue, it's not a huge deal
Here's a link to the rule: https://hellsgamers....assment-policy/
In response to a lot of questions, we posted this after: https://hellsgamers....ouncement-mean/

Neither of these gave a proper forum for us to discuss the practical application of these "new" rules. We in leadership will do our best to give you a mock verdict and punishment if it's considered harassment, so fire away.

I'm making this thread in response to people telling me HG is becoming too sanitized, which I strongly disagree with. We're clearing up the gray area in the rules we already enforce and have been enforcing for years, and I want to make it clear to everyone who asks what management believes is fair game

Anyone who has screen shots of harassment should share them.  Even if it isn't about them.

That could also lead to a slippery slope where people might have screenshots or various other things be sent, when no one involved actually saw it as harassment. This would get resolved eventually with no one getting in trouble, but that might cause headaches for anyone involved.

That is a case by case basis.  If it has been resolved, the parties will let us know.  All parties will be talked to before punishments happen.  We do this now anyway.

also wondering who reviews the harassement, can it be made publicly?
cause im sure if one of the reviewers is the  harasser it will be brushed off as "don"t be so anal about it"

also is it harassement if someone insinuates you and a lbunch of your friends are racist based on mere myths and not facts and abuse status to make sure he/she is right even though he/she isnt? just cause someone is ignorant or just rly rly dumb....
