Personally, it doesn’t matter to me what your preferences are. We have people as young as 13 on this board, and therefore I have a duty to protect them in any way that I can. It isn’t always so cut and dried as reporting people to the proper authorities, since we often don’t have full real names or locations to go on. And, if a person is not actively violating a law at that moment, there isn’t much that can be done.
Many people are fully capable of handling whatever is present on a site, whether good or bad. But there are also plenty of people who are new and under the impression that Jedi are automatically trustworthy. Therefore, if a site is suspect they deserve a warning. I don’t say someone can or cannot visit a site, as it is their choice in the end. And I can’t help if they have a behavior pattern that causes them to seek conflict and possibly harm. That is something that is addressed through their training. But to say that no one should speak up and warn the younger students is just incorrect and allows more people to possibly be sucked into a situation because they didn’t know if was a problem.
But, just to be clear, the person was dealt with and is gone at this point from the online community that people are aware of. That doesn’t mean everyone is safe, just that one known predator is doing the right thing and has removed himself from the community, as far as I know. The reason this thread got confused is that I was told of two different situations and got confused between the two. In any case, the warning is true for any site, as everyone needs to be aware and pay attention to how they feel when talking to someone. If something feels off, pay attention to it. We’ll do our best to let students know if there is anything they need to be particularly aware of, but we don’t know everything that goes on. Just know that inappropriate behavior is not tolerated at this academy and will be dealt with accordingly.
