Top Ten Reasons Why Admin Should Scrap the Policy

It is the 22nd of June. The policy has been established since the 19th of June. I thought it was a bad idea, and nothing has made me change my mind so far. I don't know why there hasn't been a list about it, heck, there's been two high quality blog posts about it so admin should be able to take a list pretty well too. Without further ado...

The Top Ten

1 Users need criticism

They do need criticism. Yeah, it is bullying, but if you give biased reasons, act immature, etc, you need criticism then. But No! This policy is preventing us from doing it. And their is also a difference between "Criticising" and "Bullying". Criticising is about giving you certain advice. Bullying is being a jerk to someone. - EpicJake

Criticism hurts many users, but it makes you learn where to improve. Don't be a baby about criticism like a user I can't name because the policy prevents me from criticising users. - Puga

They need constructive criticism, not some guy blatantly saying their list sucks and telling them why. Tell them why it is good but also tell them what they could work on - CityGuru

Criticism is allowed on the site, just critisize in a nice manner and you'll be fine - darthvadern

2 People are scared of losing their accounts

Admin said that if I messed up one more time that I would either get suspended for a long time, or lose my account, after all I've done. Now I have to be extremely careful what I say.

Yeah, I'm afraid of saying it's a bad post or something and losing my account because the user says "I'm bullying them" - Therandom

Not with me. I criticize a lot and I never get warnings. Just read the Terms of Service and act legalistically.

Well they are obviously overreacting and they can't lose their account unless they do something very much agianst the policy - darthvadern

3 Admins are doing what they want and not what the users want

Exactly, they are serving their own interest and moving every creature here like a puppet. I don't give a darn, I'm not like rest here who are wrapped around their fingers and tolerate non-sense on a regular basis. I'll open my mouth, when I feel the need to, and will open it big. - Vip3r

What is more important to a kingdom; the king or the community? - Puga

Without the community the king would have nothing to live for, billy - Puga

They are being really stubborn considering almost nobody likes the new policy. - RalphBob

They are trying to keep the site a safe enviroment, it's quite obvious - darthvadern

4 Admin won't listen to us

So if Admin did listen to us, then we would support the policy.

Well admin was listening to us now that he added a new user or post search feature to the site.

Admin just does whatever he wants. - zxm

Well probably because you didn't give any valid critisicm or because changing it would make the site a lesser safe enviroment - darthvadern

5 What was once okay is not okay

What year did somebody said it was not okay? - FerrariDude64

In 2001 South Park showed Muhammad uncensored.
In 2011, due to death threats, Comedy Central censored him in a later episode. Does that sound unfair? It's a metaphor for TTT. - Puga

That's like saying reporting users used to be ok but not anymore. Your point is? - darthvadern

6 Censorship of the internet

This site is about sharing opinions, well it WAS about sharing opinions. - EpicJake

Welcome to thetoptens, were we ban opinions and swearing - SpectralOwl

You're arguing over that you can't curse here even though it's completely pointless - darthvadern

I HATE censorship! Words are just words - Demon_Kitty

7 Most users are against it

You are supposed to act in a manner that is consistent with the Terms of Use. Making petitions on scrapping the policy promotes multiple violations of the Terms of Use.

To be honest I'm not against or in favor it. I am neutral about the new policy. - cosmo

More than half of the site is against it! Even I'm against it. - EpicJake

Does not mean they're right for being agianst it - darthvadern

8 The Overrated Users list was removed

The list wasn't even meant to be hurtful in the first place. It didn't really attack the users in anyway, and instead, just stated how they got too much praise.

I'm sorry, but I never saw a problem with that list. I don't believe anyone attached anyone. They just stated opinions.

I was being a little oversensitive about the list. I've learned that criticism is actually good for any users, so the list isn't so bad. - Garythesnail

Well probably because people were attacking users there - darthvadern

So I guess by someone remixing most overrated movies, they are attacking people then. - iliekpiez

9 It allows hypersensitive babies to shine in the spotlight

I really dislike how this detracts attention from those who deserve it. With some criticism, they would be fairly balanced. - PositronWildhawk

Oversensitive and immature creatures have been constantly breaking into this site in large numbers and have turned it into a wrecked Civilization, and the administration is not even worth talking about. - Vip3r

I can't name these babies because you guessed it, the policy! - Puga

Don't feed them, ignore them, it's as simple as that, feeding is the reason trolls have become way too prominent in the last few months - darthvadern

10 The petition has 30 signatures but admin took no action

Petitions are useless. The policy won't be scrapped, as it's already stated in the Terms of Use. Stop it with your fantasies.

I was gonna say something about the admins, but due to the new policy, they probably wouldn't accept it. - RalphBob

We should keep the petition up. Hopefully get the majority of the site on our side. - IronSabbathPriest

Sorry, but the petitions usually don't work. - MrCoolC

The Contenders

11 Users are scared of comments, posts and lists being removed

I'm a victim of this atrocious behavior, but the difference is that I'm not scared. 95% of my indigestible honest opinions were wiped out without using even a fraction of grey matter in the head. - Vip3r

One of my posts was removed just because it had an uncensored f***. CURSE YOU ADMIN! - Powerfulgirl10

I censor so my stuff doesn't get removed - Demon_Kitty

Some of my comments got deleted...

12 People retired because of it

We lost a lot of good users all thanks to it - TwilightKitsune

We need users that can save thetoptens!

13 Admin is constantly annoying the users

No, he's just doing his job - darthvadern

14 Lists get denied
15 We need more swearing

Why? - darthvadern

16 We want more arguments

What? Why? - Goatworlds

17 The List Worst TopTenners Was Removed

That’s actually a good thing since it was bullying a lot of users.

18 Admin is biased

This is the most relevant item in the list, and I strongly and evidently agree, with them having a prejudiced mindset. - Vip3r

19 It grants crybabies more power

The item name itself is bad but I don't know how to say it properly. Imagine if a crybaby Indie Dev who can't take criticism reports to admin for bullying, since the policy indicates that the content will be judged for what you said without context, it will be removed. Imagine that being applied to TheTopTens - YourWaifuSucks

Only if you decide to feed them - darthvadern

20 The grammar correction system, word censorship, sentence editing and removal of parentheses often ruins people's lists and also messes up their titles badly
21 It nearly made SpectralOwl infamous

It was after Puga was suspended yet again, over user elimination games. I wrote a sarcastic letter about something involving his next move being removing DHMs on user ranking lists. For some reason, he actaully saw that as a legitimate suggestion. Fortunately, people asked to stop blaming me for it (Specifically, Element119) and reminded people that admin was the target for a long time, and there wasn't any signs of it cooling down - SpectralOwl

22 There are some users on the site that are actually bad and need to be criticized

Criticism is allowed on the site, just not every form of criticism - darthvadern
