As of 18:30 PST December 14th, 2014, StarWarsMaster has been suspended from the Choice of Games forums for sexual harassment.
Specifically, he sent unsolicited private messages to more than a dozen new users of the forum, with variations of this message: "Welcome sweety! You man or woman? Welcome to the forums! I’m first_name 21 years old all male you?”
This attempted flirtation is sexual harassment; we take sexual harassment very seriously at Choice of Games. Do not flirt with new users on our forums. Unsolicited flirtation is creepy. It makes people feel unsafe here.
As we’ve written in our forum guidelines, this forum is a civilized place for discussion. This isn’t a place where people go to flirt; it’s a place for talking about games. If you receive an inappropriate private message from anyone on our forums, we ask you to Flag it by clicking the flag icon on the message, so that the moderators can investigate.
While we reserve the right to read direct messages on this forum, we value your privacy, so we don’t normally read all of them. That means we have to rely on you to flag inappropriate private behavior. Who knows how many people StarWarsMaster scared away from our forums, giving them the impression that they were on their own, instead of in a safer space?
P.S. As a reminder, another one of our guidelines is not to argue about civility on public channels. Please don’t pile on to condemn StarWarsMaster or post publicly to defend him. If you have questions about this post or our forum policies, you can contact me directly via private message, or email us at email@example.com.
