I love mi yodeya as a very greet website. This post is written here to help it to be better. Some participants were punished because of low quality posts by one month of blocked account.

Is this really the right attitude for a Jewish and Tora inspired group? Afterwards I didn't see more posts from those participants. Probably because of shame in public.

המלבין פני חבירו ברבים

If they were simply prevented from new questions or answers for a certain time without suspension, wouldn't it be better.

I feel the moral values of our religion are not really honored by such events on the site. Lack of empathy is discouraged in Tora. I assume the topic is not new but I cannot stay silent.

Disclaimer: This post is for constructive discussion, not Lekanter. To promote if possible an amelioration.

    What's the difference between a suspension and preventing them from posting a new question or answer? – DonielF Feb 2 at 21:32
  • @DonielF A suspension is advertised in your profile and reputation. – Alex Feb 2 at 21:40
  • The difference is that the user remains with his reputation, and can answer but not ask or inversely or can comment – kouty Feb 2 at 21:41
  • I am not surprised by downvotes. I will enjoy to discuss – kouty Feb 2 at 21:44

    For better or worse, there is no other way for mods to stop an account from asking or answering as the case may be. If you have a different idea for Stack Exchange to implement you can suggest it; I don't particularly expect they'd ever get around to it. – Double AA Feb 2 at 22:45

    @DoubleAA is this a valid teruts from a Jewish point of view? May be that the way is good technically but the result is an Avera – kouty Feb 3 at 3:25

    @kouty I hope you understand that it's near-impossible for this question to receive a meaningful answer. You're criticising specific actions of the moderators without specifying the actions. The alleged perpetrators, even if we could infer with certainty which actions you're talking about, would be rule-bound not to comment on them without express permission from the alleged victims. You're explicitly rebuking a small group of individuals for allegedly violating the Torah in a way that is inherently unfair and non-productive. – Isaac Moses Feb 3 at 4:30
