Iam against censorship in the current situation, we have no inpartial people
to make the decission on what is an insult and what not. This has a very high
potential of abuse under the current administration.
But if this is implemented against my objection then i have the following
* People are warned first and only repeat offenders are unsubscribed and only
if this doesnt help moderation is considered.
* Developers are excluded from being unsubscribed/..., we need them to move forward
even if they are occasionally rude in a exceptional situation and the current
* All unsubscribes, moderation and bans are publically announced and publically
justified with public statement of who and why is requesting it.
* The person being unsubscribed/... is given a chance to defend himself
