+ 1000 The problem won't go away by lowering cut-off. It's a problem on the requesters side.

Yes, slapping people's wrists is work, but if it had been done more consistently in the past, we maybe wouldn't have had so many problems.

ayrt

And it seems like part of the problem is that the mods have decided complaints require researching into the canon to make sure it's legitimate and not just grudgewankery, but if it's adding that much more stress to deal with it during the exchange, then don't.

Let the writer lodge a complaint, tell them ODAO, warn the requester and have a post-Yuletide inquiry period to decide if the warning stands.

It's really stupid, all this trying to account for every single little loop hole that someone might use to sneak in a request that is ~against the spirit of yuletide.

That's what lead to the great mess of convoluted rules last year AND THERE WERE STILL PEOPLE REQUESTING CLINT/COULSON.

It's just not possible to prevent people from being jerks. No matter how air-tight the rules, sheer jerkitude will still slip through the cracks. If they really want to address jerk behaviour, there has to be consequences for being a jerk.
