Maybe if I was trying to overturn my report you would be right.
I am not.
This is closer to someone getting reported 'for being black' and being searched for drugs. In a town where half of everyone uses drugs.
When the focus of the reports is aimed at individuals who have done nothing illegal 'is black'/''bad player' and this uncovers something 'has drugs'/'was negative', this creates a systemic issue, especially when an unsustainably large portion of the 'not black'/'people who play consistently' population also 'uses drugs'/'is negative'.
Do you understand the issue now? The issue is that in all of the games I was reported in, many other people were worse offenders of negativity than me. Because the code is so nebulous, and it is so easy to accuse people of breaking it, a huge portion of the community is a potential offender. The limiting reagent in this is reports, because of the tacit agreement of the community that these standards are too strict. Instead these reports are used as a response to unreportable offenses, effectively granting those offenses.
Worse yet, it seems to just be an excuse for a stronger underlying principle. I have seen a number of cases which might have been for intentional feeding, but it was difficult to unprovable. It is very realistic that these individuals could be prone to having bad games.
