Good evening, everypony.
We've heard your complaints, and understand your frustrations. Recently, we've had a lot of truly unnecessarily, overdramatic fighting going on here on /pony/, and on /canterlot/, that has been both rule breaking, and highly disruptive.
Our staff has been deliberating these fights, and the history of these fights, for several days now. We've concluded that the users of the site are generally good, and shouldn't be punished for fights that emerge from only a few people.
These fights have been incredibly harmful and toxic to the atmosphere of our humble community. Effective immediately, we will be banning the two users we have determined are responsible for the constant rule-breaking incivility that has so frustrated all of you.
(1) Manley T. Dragonpuncher;
(2) a lost pony
Their bans shall be effective for two weeks, immediately; the reasoning is this: these two users have constantly fought, despite endless staff and user instruction, assistance, and conciliatory efforts. We cannot tolerate it any further, and feel this immediate action is necessary.
After this two week period, if either user engages directly OR indirectly with the other user, i.e., making thinly veiled references to the other, an IMMEDIATE permaban shall follow for both users, unless it can be shown one user acted with malice to purposefully pull the both of them down (self-destructive revenge).
