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

Everyone has criticism Admin. Even [[Eminem]] does! - TeamRocket747

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.

Me too. I made a few exceptions for the anime on why Toy Story is a better anime than every other anime but it got removed along with the full stop and ADMIN CALLED ME A TROLL ALL BECAUSE OF WHAT I DID!? That wasn't trolling, it's called a joke! I wish I joined pre-26/02/2015! >:( - TheYoshiPyro64

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

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

This is a reason to hate the admins, not why the admins should scrap the policy. Same goes for 6, 10, and 13.

Sometimes I think admins like to be brick walls when it comes to this - SpectralOwl

4 Admin won't listen to us

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

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

To be honest, I didn't think this list would get approved. - styLIShT

Admin just does whatever he wants. - zxm

5 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

The internet is about freedom of speech. Unless you're showing Viacom footage during your YouTube rant but ANY other time, nobody has a right to stop people from doing anything. - Puga

Yeah,admin won't let us swear,not even for fun but let visitors to troll - zxm

6 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

7 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

Just because someone's overrated doesn't mean they're bad. - Powerfulgirl10

8 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

I am not totally against it but some of the things freak me - zxm

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

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

Bad things are happening because of the policy. - EpicJake

I've been criticized before, but I know the difference between bullying and criticism. Criticism is usually friendly and tells you where to improve. Puga and Keyson have both helped me with this on occasion, but bullying is flat-out being a jerk, and not many users had a problem with that. - Garythesnail

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

There is no way 100,000 people are going to go on the site just to sign that. By the time that happens, either the site closes down, or another 300 billion sign up. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

Wheres the petition at? - FerrariDude64

The Contenders

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

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

They're actually afraid of accounts being deleted - styLIShT

Some of my comments got deleted...

One of my lists were removed because they thought of it as a ripoff "Top Ten Worst T.V. Shows" when it was "Top Ten T.V. shows worse Than Dora" I was talking about shows worse than Dora The Explorer. - AnimeDrawer

12 Admin is constantly annoying the users
13 Lists get denied
14 We need more swearing
15 We want more arguments V 2 Comments
16 People retired because of it

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

17 The List Worst TopTenners Was Removed
18 Admin is biased
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

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
