Due process and rights for the accused


What makes me very uneasy about this proposal is that it stamps the alleged harassing text with a harassment template. This may drive away good editors if they were falsely or maliciously accused, or if they were validly accused but they had some extenuating circumstances (such as, they were drunk at the time). I think we need to take a more softly-softly approach.

I also do not think that reverting changes without proper explanation is generally an example of harassment. It could be part of a pattern of harassment theoretically I suppose, but in general I think that behaviour, while annoying, is not harassment.--Greenrd (talk) 19:54, 18 June 2016 (UTC)Reply

Imo, a Template:Harassed template on a userpage could be handy. The anti-harassment force could take a closer look and take an appropriate action. Lotje (talk) 11:02, 19 June 2016 (UTC)Reply
