The South Pacific Regional Message Board
Sometimes free speech is more important than some peoples feelings. Don't you want an active RMB? Right now too many posts get suppressed for nonsense reasons, and I think you can guess why I don't support fascist government regimes like this.

THERE SHOULD BE RULES. WHO SHOULD BE THE ARBITERS?
Not too long ago, a member of the Local Council authored an article in defence of the institution, arguing that the body exists to enforce the rules of the Regional Message Board (RMB) and maintain order. The Local Council exists today because of the institution's codification in our region's Charter and laws, but do we need the Local Council to enforce the rules of the RMB?
My answer is no. The Local Council's existence today was born out of an attempt to give power to the gameside but, in reality, the institution imposed a divide within the community that is the South Pacific. Contrary to what others have stated, there is only one community in the South Pacific. I strongly deplore rhetoric that claims otherwise and condemn them as factionalist attempts to divide the South Pacific, regardless of the origin of this rhetoric on either the RMB or the forum. You will never hear me say "gameside community" or "forum government" because I reject the assumptions made by those terms.
One may ask if the Local Council doesn't exist, who shall make and enforce the rules? Well, the South Pacific's forum and Discord server are subject to the enforcement of the Community Standards, and a team of moderators exist to enforce these standards. It's not a glorified role, and these people are supposed to be apolitical in their position as moderators. They are not elected but are instead appointed based on trust as longtime citizens of the South Pacific in good standing. These are the people who can replace the Local Council and who are trusted enough to moderate the RMB sensibly.
Forming the Local Council was a mistake to begin with, and I support any legislation in the Assembly that seeks to abolish the institution. We have rules in the South Pacific, but should the Local Council be the arbiters of these rules when it comes to the RMB?

I do agree that many are imposing a divide between the game and forum, and that the South Pacific is truly united as one community nonetheless.
However, I do agree with Auphelia that the rules are there to maintain order in the RMB. Also, what about the fact that TSP is a democracy? The people have the right to choose who will represent them; that’s the reason why we have elections.
