I was recently posting a small 2 word message in server chat and accidentally hit the caps lock button and pressed ENTER before catching the mistake. I immediately followed up with a message simply stating "oops, caps". I was promptly kicked for CAPS. Now I do appreciate anyone trying to make the Empire community better, and those who volunteer to do so. I also appreciate supporters who make payment of servers and expansion of the community possible. However, I must ask if a zero tolerance policy regarding caps is really making the community better, or does it make the moderators look like they are abusing "power". Personally, I feel that there is a greater damage done by having a perception of moderator abuses than the occasional use of caps. For weeks I have seen other regular players kicked for ruthless enforcement of the caps rule. I have also seen the resentment of the moderators by the players when they get back on. I am in no way attempting to smear any moderator or accusing them of being a power hungry Nazi. I am simply asking all of you if a Zero Tolerance Policy on something like caps, is better for the Empire Community. Personally, I am in no way offended by the occasional use caps, and would go on record voting for common sense approach to use of caps instead of a Zero Tolerance Policy which does, in all honesty, create resentment for the staff. Maybe the Community would be better served by a rule stating 2 consecutive all caps messages are the point at which it becomes a problem. Maybe one word in caps is out of line and should not be tolerated. I am asking both mods, and members at which point are caps a problem, and at what point does the moderator appear to be abusing authority? Again, I thank all those who volunteer their time, or money to make this community possible.
