I just want to express my official disrespect for people that do the following
Is mockery okay?
In general no, free speech has limits but mockery is a gray-zone. I admit, I also do it from time to time, but normally not towards one single individual, only if there is actual evidence that he is to be known to be a troll. Try to de-escalate, sometimes a joke helps, when its not meant as insult.
There is a fine line between mocking and aggressive trolling, as well as targeting specific individuals. I also think I do not need to explain further that there is a difference between actual evidence, baseless accusations, and flaming or trolling.
How to address this the proper way
Please keep the respect for
You will get banned from my communities if you break those codex, and I will remove all your content to show my clear direction regarding breaking the code of conduct and my own codex.
I mention it because some people I banned afterwards asking me why they got banned, above reasons is basically why. You always can apologize via DM or retract your content and then we can try to start talking about a second chances, but in most cases such bans are permanent for an absolute good reason, I nor any Lemmy.ml mod, admin banning without solid reason and this is only as a last resort option for people who have no real interest in communicating on an adult level. Sometimes retreading and overthinking helps a lot to get a better picture of the whole situation.
This statement might be updated and improved in the future.
