I think it's pretty apparent that both these people have used up the benefit of the doubt. Yeah, a "heavier" hand has used and yet they still play like it's actually entirely the fault of the mod staff (and sometimes the rest of the community) being unfair to them specifically.
This has gone on long enough and the fact that it persists despite the "heavier hand".
Neither of them really accepts any of the reasoning behind the judgments of the staff if it doesn't align with their own egocentric reasoning. Both of them take a rather childish and paranoid approach to any decision they don't like, and if one of the threads here, on /canterlot/ is any indication, they are perfectly willing to attack and accuse the staff of the worst possible of intentions, rather than just accept alternate perspectives. Or even give them the benefit of the doubt, especially considering that they are all volunteers with lives outside this site?
Does that mean they should get some special treatment though? As if their immature attitudes are like cognitive disfunctions?
I think they've both drawn the benefit of the doubt they deserve pretty thin at this point, they certainly aren't going to adjust their attitudes if the mods are willing to capitulate and gives them as much time as they are giving them to just bullheadedly refuse to accept, or even see
anything from the mods perspective and just persist
to assert favoritism and/or persecution.
And this just ruins the site, it's pretty much apparently wearing down the mods, and ruining them as well, as they treat them with kid gloves, perpetually having to placate them in order not to feel guilty about it all. And the more they do that, the more they encourage this sort of behavior from them.
