Look, the tribunal was designed to give the power back to the players. You guys
determine what is collectively 'ok'. The thread I think you're referring to is here:
If you'll notice, I never said that saying "stop feeding" is a bannable offense.
I did imply that it was completely ineffective and that, specifically, it was "the petulant whining of someone who is so self-involved that he'd prefer to vent his rage at his teammates rather than endure his tribulations stoically, help his team overcome them, and then carry them to victory."
Because telling a teammate to simply 'stop feeding' isn't
productive. It doesn't help you accomplish your goal- which I assume is to try and win the game. It actually makes that significantly harder because it turns the focus of the game from your team trying to win to you whining, throwing a tantrum, and putting your teammates further on tilt because you can't deal with the setback of someone who is having a rough game due to any number of factors- including him simply not being as skilled as you are
or the chance
that his random opponent happens to be significantly more skilled than either of you
Is "get dunked" bannable? If I came across that case for review and that was the only
thing the guy said, I think I'd
vote to pardon that case. But that's just me. Tribunal was created with the goal of putting that power back into your hands.
If you look at how this thread is being received (similar to it's carbon copy), it appears (to me at least) that the community disagrees with you. That they don't play a game to get harassed. That if they're given a choice when they hop online to unwind and play a game, they'd rather not deal with people who can't handle frustrations like an adult. That's not me telling you that, that's their votes telling you that. Similarly, we ask that people treat each other with at least a base amount of respect. While it's easy for us to spot and expedite some extreme fringe cases, that 'base' is set by the community through the tribunals votes. That's not us making that choice, that's us trying to put the power back into the hands of the community.
Maybe the issue isn't really that Riot caters to 'carebears'...? Maybe- just maybe- the issue we're talking about here involves you hanging out with a mirror and having some quiet self-reflection.
