Slippery slope just got a whole lot slippery didn't it? I will never support any "anti-troll" legislation, and I believe that every member on here should as well.

"First they came for Carcano, but I was not Carcano so I didn't speak up, then they came after Corino, but I was not Corino so I didn't speak up, then the ass blasted speaker came after me, and there was no one left to speak up for me."

Don't cause another genocide of bans, speak out against the badmins of Virtual Congress.

I still haven't figured out why #Carcano was banned. It looks like he made some people mad. Now, he is being banned. Making people mad is not a qualification for banning someone. I was okay with troll legislation, but I'm not okay with one person possessing all of the authority like a monarchy.

I know you're serious, but that's essentially what is happening.

Jenna shouldn't be able to ban people because she doesn't like them. The whole point of the VC is to have differing opinions.

Jenna is just showing how intolerant the left is.

These two are definitely annoying. But I'm not sure you have the power to unilaterally do this. I think there's a formal impeachment procedure somewhere.

Southern, she had 100% political motive. She has a personal vendetta against me. She just abused her power and banned me despite the fact that I violated no rule. She banned me because I challenged her and she didn't like it. You shouldn't be friends with such a person. She is single handedly ruining the VC and I won't stand for it.

Why don't you just do things by the book? You have no power to block someone as speaker. I was on board with troll legislation to prevent what has happened tonight. You should unblock both members and pass legislation that will present a process for us all to handle these types of situations. As far as I'm concerned at this point, both of the accused are innocent until proven guilty.

C&C compromise: "The users carcano and corino are to be unblocked immediately. Following this, a vote shall be brought to the floor regarding the expulsion of aforementioned users. Look to the VC constitution for procedures and protocol."

Go fuck yourself. I called you a cunt bc you were acting like a cunt.

-I sided with you on the basis of Free Speech when it went to court.

-I supported Suspension of Legislation proposal ability SPECIFICALLY bc I do not believe anyone should be banned from the VC entirely.

-I stated that the ability to propose Legislation is not protected by Free Speech specifically so there would be no confusion in how I rule in future cases.

-I have made it clear I believe trolls diminish the experience of the VC for others.

If any of that bothers you...too bad.

You are not going to find anyone in this Congress that is going to state that anything I do within the VC is unfair or driven by agenda.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the idea of keeping order more than anyone here, but I don't think this was done in a professional way. Just my personal opinion based on my managerial experience. Do whatever you think is best though.

Considering that the speaker doesn't have any authority to ban a user to my knowledge, I do believe this was a misstep. Not only that, but the explanation is extremely weak, Jenna.

"Article 3
(Impeachment of Prestigious Offices)
The people may impeach someone if he/she is inactive, misbehaves.
If a user shares an election poll, that user will no longer be allowed to hold office and will be subject to impeachment.
Congress (the people) must impeach someone by a 3/4 majority vote.
The Supreme Court must review Congress's decision and agree with a 3/5 majority vote to remove an official from office.
If a judge is subject to impeachment, a temporary judge will be appointed by the President and approved by Congress."

I was planning on interacting with the Virtual Congress and planned on posting some law enforcement bills, but this stuff has really turned me off of it. Maybe I'll check back later.

Jenna, did they recently do something else so extreme to merit being banned (within the last day or so and I mean aside from the troll legislation and the earlier court case involving Carcano and Zia) or is this just a unilateral action on your part in response to their cumulative trolling of the past few weeks?

Honestly, I'd stay out of it. Jenna hates law enforcement and all your bills will be immediately labelled as troll bills.

This is what I'm going to do. I will personally tag #carcano and #corino into every single poll. They should tell me how they vote and will be given the opportunity to debate. I will calculate the results of their voice. If their voice would make the bill fail, I'll veto it. This is a temporary solution until our speaker starts doing her job.
