I think Sams proposed experiment is a very good idea. I do have some thoughts,
but my support doesn't hinge on their incorporation and I'm in favor of the
draft either way.
In my opinion these should be experiments of process rather than penalty. I
feel like since the severity of a ban legnth is subjective and since different
cases will warrant different legnths we might do better (i.e. have less things
to disagree on) if all experiments assumed the same ban legnth. I was also
thnking that if everyone agreed this was a process experiment then I'd like to
suggest that all experiments be mock in the sense that the decisions are not
actually carried out. I think doing it that way would give us greater freedom
to experiment. Also I figure anyone banned by an experimental process is going
to make a lot of noise in the appeals process and we might start to annoy our
counterparts who have to hear them?
These are just my thoughts and I'm not tied to any of them so you risk no
argument by disagreeing.
