why did some of them get rollbacks but others like mannercookie got a permaban?
I'm not knowledgeable of his past but maybe this is the 'n'th offense incurred? I have no idea if that is in fact true. I'm not attempting to purposely cast aspersions, but it strikes me as a possibility. Personally I don't feel that his exploiting was any more egregious than any others.
Everyone should have received the same punishment excluding repeating offenders.
I cannot understand why this is a polarizing topic.
The division is an odd one, but not entirely incomprehensible. We all share an Overton window on almost every topic. I would venture that this is especially true when applied to notions of justice and punishment. Whenever a strong feeling is placed behind an action it inevitably seeks out a counterbalance.
