Hello my friends,
I recommend reviewing the politics on fcc facebook group moderation. Moderators should not have completely autonomous power to determine who will be blocked. There should be a hierarchy to review the moderation of the moderator.
A few days ago, a guy named Saverio blocked me the first time from the group, because I made a post complaining that the update of the website erased all of my data(which I found later on that it was not true, my progress was intact). But the guy named Saverio didn’t like that I used the expression “this f@qin website”(and I wrote exactly like this, with the special characters). He said that I should apologize and I did… But he was not satisfied, he wanted more. He said that I should be more cute in my apology, which I ignored, then he got angry that I faced his moderator superpower and blocked me.
Bad language is really terrible, but I don’t think it should be a reason for permban. I did not commit any harassment, trolling or spamming, which are the infractions expressed in the fCC CoC. I was trying to solve a problem related not only by me, but by many other users. A simple notification would suffice to fix the bad language in the post. I sent message inbox to him, he ignored. I created other facebook profile and got into the group again, but he discovered and blocked me again. He continued saying that I was being sarcastic in my apology, which is not true. In my opinion, it’s already personal. He just don’t want me in the group, and he’ll make up every type of argument to try to justify that I should be blocked. He just does what he wants. A moderator named Christopher Lowery was very helpful and kind trying to solve my problem talking to Saverio, but he is too busy hating me to get me unblocked.
So here are my recommendations:
1 - This guy, Saverio, does not seem to have emotional maturity to be a moderator. I recommend reviewing his participation on it.
2 - I found a little weird that a user can only be unblocked from the group by the moderator who blocked him. There should be a hierarchy to review the moderation of the moderators. Moderators should not be given god-king powers.
Just wanted to leave this registered here, so the community can improve its moderation politics also.
