  3. Accusing someone of a made up mental illness should be ban-worthy

Using the made up terms "TDS" or Trump Derangement Syndrome, or any other made up variant of it, to attack another user should result in a ban. Full IP, no questions asked.

It is time GameFAQS starting taking the radical right (those responsible for countless real-world violent acts, that incubated on-line) seriously and removed them from the platform.

This is an easy way to start.

I don't engage in political matters, but you honestly seem to have the wrong attitude about this. You suggest removing an entire group of people from the site because of things you think they did outside the site...that doesn't make sense.

If anything, I'm certainly glad you're not a moderator on this site.

No, I suggest removing people who use made up mental health issues to attack people that disagree with them. But that's some A+ spin, buddy.

If it's made up, that means it doesn't exist, so I don't see the point of banning people over it.

The ignore button should suffice in this case.

I disagree with the premise. It shouldn't matter if somebody is using a made up illness to insult another - insulting is already covered under Flaming. Also partially under Trolling. At any rate, it's already a report-worthy behaviour.
We do what we must / because we can. / For the good of all of us. / Except the ones who are dead.
At least on CE those terms are bannable.

Of course if someone questions the mental status of someone on the wrong side, no action is taken.

This pretty much.

Plus it's already moddable (IIRC this has been addressed specifically on Ask the Mods somewhere). Far from banworthy though imo, at least in a vacuum.
See me on Discord! ^.^
