As in, would you warn or ban a member if they broke a bunch of rules on other sites in your niche, or got into a massive controversy on social media? What if someone said they were breaking the law elsewhere? Personally, I don't punish users for behaviour on other sites, and tend to only care whether they break the rules on my own forums when it comes to how they're treated. Honestly, they could be the worst troll in the world on every competitor's forum, and so long as they didn't act like that on my own one, I wouldn't care about it. And there are a few reasons I run sites this way. For one thing, I understand full well that people tend to act differently in different situations, and that someone's dodgy behaviour in one situation may not reflect their behaviour anywhere else. After all, do you act the same way with friends as with your boss? Probably not, so why should the company care what you say/do in your off time? I also realise that by looking into people's behaviour elsewhere (or taking hints from others on the matter), it kinda makes me more responsible for how people act than I would be otherwise. That seems like a legal adn PR nightmare waiting to happen, especially if I get it wrong and either someone's dodgy behaviour goes under the radar or someone innocent gets banned under a mistaken identity. Finally, I also despise this 'cancel culture' and this 'lets ruin someone's live over some remark said on Twitter' crap, and I consider this setup as a good way of showing I don't support it. If someone goes and complains about this stuff, I'm quite happy to tell them to mind their own business. Similarly, I'd do the same thing if people complained about an employee of mine over this stuff too. Just tell them to cry more and get over it. But what about you? Do member actions elsewhere affect how they're treated on your forum? Would you ever warn or ban someone for saying offensive stuff on social media? What about actively breaking the law in some way? Tell me what you think!
