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 and hating are two different things. You can improve from what the criticism. For example, if some says your lists suck, you can try to improve your list (or whatever it can be). Hating can be more personal. - MrCoolC

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.

It's either gonna b this, or worse, people r just gonna stop caring & leave altogether or troll the site in a way they permanently get suspended. Some cases, the latter just happened, while others, like me, I can't afford 2 lose an account out of nowhere. - Nonpointed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good user: Breadwinners is bad.
Admin: *bans good user because policy*

Hypersensitive Baby: wa you're rude and mean for not liking breadwinners breadwinners is bae buhdeuce is senpai your not nice admin ban them I'm reporting you wa your a bully don't be jelly of swaysway senpai waa! bad user!
Admin: QUICK! Get the spotlight! Make them best user of forever!

BECAUSE THIS IS LOGIC T-T - thisisaveryrandomusername88

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

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 biased
13 The grammar correction system, word censorship, sentence editing and removal of parentheses often ruins people's lists and also messes up their titles badly
14 We want more arguments

What? Why? - Goatworlds

15 The List Worst TopTenners Was Removed
16 Lists get denied
17 We need more swearing
18 Admin is constantly annoying the users
19 People retired because of it

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

We need users that can save thetoptens!

20 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

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
