Discord Rule 12 is silly.

Postby nemvar » Thu Oct 31, 2019 6:50 pm #521833

12: If you are in possession of confidential administrative information and refuse to cooperate with the investigation, you may be punished as if the leaker themselves.


This violates the right to remain silent.
It doesn't actually matter if this will get enforced in that way, with this exact phrasing, inaction can be punished.
This is oddly orwellian and looks like something a wannabe tyrant would write.

If you have nothing to hide, you got nothing to fear.

Oh yes. Le epic 'This is a private space' meme.
Fam, being a private space has nothing to do with having a good system of rules or not. And a good qualifier for that would be that the right to remain silent is intact otherwise you can not have a fair system.

this is similar to the 18+ servers which have rules that amount to "no kids allowed, and if you _knowingly_ allow kids to be here without telling us so we can eject them we'll fucking yeet you too for being a pedo"

likewise if you get into a side-discord that sets about harassing other players and pulling internet detective bullshit, don't be surprised if you get the boot even if you didn't personally participate in the harassment itself

if you're worried about collective punishment for being in a shady metagang stirring up drama, maybe reconsider whether you should be participating in a shady metagang that stirs up drama

No it's really not. There is no explanation for why this is needed. This is orwellian, you can't argue that it isn't.
Just punish people for actually spreading leaks instead of having a badly formulated rule like this. Your example is already covered under rule 1 and you could also write an explicit rule like:
Spreading confidential administrative information will lead to a permaban.

It would cover your hypothetical so I don't get why we have to go full China and implement a stupid rule like the current one. All it does it stir up the community as rule like this will be perceived as unjust.

The /tg/ discord is not some small group of people. It's a big and varied community. It's not unreasonable to demand a fair system of rules.

I imagine this rule shouldn’t even exist, the times we actually need it would be covered by other rules. If say x person knows about y person threatening to dox someone but doesn’t share that info, they’d be banned with or without this rule. Anything actually important would be covered by other rules, or just common sense.

Not to mention the horrible wording of this rule. Garbage sentence structure aside, what the fuck is confidential administrative information? If you don’t know it yet its not administrative information its just information (that could help with an administrative investigation). And why is it for discord only? If someone does this you’ll only ban them from our discord and leave it there, changing absolutely nothing and encouraging them to continue to withhold information.

All in all this rule reeks of thoughtlessness and haste. Administrative side rules wouldn’t really make sense to poll the community about, but if you guys are gonna grind out rules as terrible as this maybe we should. I’m just wondering how far up the INTERNAL DISCUSSIONS tower this decision was made, we clearly need to get more voices in there.

Why the fuck was INTERNAL DISCUSSIONS tower changed to internal discussions

This absolutely BASED and REDPILLED rule is a result of an attempt by the headmins to coerce me into fingering one of the other admins as a leaker under threat of a server and forum permaban. It's there to punish anyone who tries to post things they don't want getting out there, even if they're not the originator of the leaks and got them off of, say, the /vg/ rumor thread or another ss13 discord.

I'm not sure if they're going to make it a server rule, but I've never been a member of the /tg/station discord so this type of thinking has been used as leverage outside the discord environment.

Isn't this more similar to "contempt of court"? There's an investigation, you're not a suspect but admins know you know important shit, but you refuse to cooperate -> you're punished until you decide to cooperate. The right to remain silent only comes into play if disclosing what you know would lead to self-incrimination, e.g. you took an active part in the leaks.

Contempt of court as far as I'm aware is disrupting the proceedings of the court case itself or otherwise disrespecting the authority of the court while it is in session. The term you're probably looking for is perjury, which also doesn't apply. The right to remain silent is exactly what it says on the tin. To clarify, you're under an obligation to not provide dishonest, false, or misleading testimony. But you're not under any obligation to provide any information at all. Saying nothing is not equivalent to providing false information.

No. If you're called as a witness, you can't refuse to testify. Contempt of court applies if you don't.

Oh right. The US doesn't have the right to remain silent per se. Instead they have 'the right against self-incrimination' which is functionally identical in a lot of cases and certainly seems applicable.

your own link notes:

there are legal reasons to refuse to testify. The reasons should be presented to the court at the time of refusing. They might include:

the right against self-incrimination,
privilege (marital, clergy, news reporter),
questions are not material.

The point is:
Knowing about a leak is a crime in itself->right to remain silent applies, because disclosing what you know would be self-incriminating
OR
knowing isn't a crime->you can't withold information that can help admins catch the leaker, if you refuse you're punished just like it happens IRL with contempt, your rights aren't being violated.

The rule as it is worded seems closer to the second option.

you're not going to get in trouble for someone else leaking stuff to you, unless you then refuse to provide the information about who leaked it to you to the admins when they have a reason to believe you know (probably because you opened your mouth and blabbed).

Leaks themselves may be disclosed under self-incriminating circumstances or in conversations that too are private or confidential.

Thanks to oranges for contributing nothing to the conversation. "Phh, not like this rule will ever be invoked in a way I don't want.", said like a good useful idiot.

Do we really want to ban people just because they don't want to rat out their friends or family?

I completely disagree with the current state of this rule. Besides the good points already made here against it, it seems to me it can and will be used maliciously.

Imagine the implications if false information starts being spread about someone knowing about something, when in reality they don't know anything. It can be potentially used amidst confusion to get rid or punish members of the community that haven't done anything to deserve it, and for personal reasons.

Where does the line get drawn if more than one person are falsely accussing someone else and they can't defend themselves nor prove they have nothing to do with it?

Don't know if I explained myself correctly but I believe this rule will only bring trouble in the future and will enable people to witch hunt for their convenience. Huge no no

Thanks to oranges for contributing nothing to the conversation. "Phh, not like this rule will ever be invoked in a way I don't want.", said like a good useful idiot.

Do we really want to ban people just because they don't want to rat out their friends or family?

if you choose to hang around with a leaker and protect them from us, you're not welcome here on this server.

so, choose your friends and family wisely, because you may be required to go to the wall for them.

Can't get banned for thought crimes on Discord if you just never use the Discord.
