Justicar's Opinion

Justicar's Opinion - 032 DB vs. Raidoner

On July 23, a complaint was brought to the Justicar that the defendant had sent a long recruitment email to numerous members of the organization. In the email, he claimed he new Clan to House transition was “proof” that the Brotherhood was disintegrating, and then attempted to convince the recipients to join his alternate online Star Wars club. The Justicar issued Raidoner an official warning for inappropriately using his access to member's email addresses to send spam.

On August 1, the Justicar received several complaints after the defendant entered #dbgaming and posted a malicious link into the channel. If followed, the link would display an explicit image, begin an endless pop-up loop, and expose users to malware. Raidoner was quickly banned by a channel operator, who reported the incident to the Chamber of Justice. On the same day, Raidoner sent a private message to a Dark Council member, in which he posted the same malicious link. This was also reported to the Chamber.

The Chamber convened and determined that Raidoner had violated the terms and spirit of his official warning, and had violated the Dark Covenant. An Order of Advanced Incarceration was put into place to block Raidoner's access to the website, IRC, and the forums to prevent further violations. This Order was approved by the Chamber Appeals Panel as required by the Dark Covenant, Section 8.08(c). Raidoner was notified of the charges, which included Crude Behavior and Disreputable conduct. The defendant refused to enter a plea, instead using the Notification of Charges email thread as an opportunity to insult and threaten the Chamber of Justice, the Dark Council, and the Dark Brotherhood.

Several days later, the defendant violated his trial-term probation and his official warning by again using acquired email addresses to send out more spam recruitment attempts. The defendant was notified that the Hacking violation had been added to the charges against him, and responded by threatening that the Brotherhood had not, "not seen the start of it yet." After the plea-waiting period ended, a trial was held, and Raidoner was unanimously found guilty on all counts.

After the verdict was decided, the Chamber of Justice determined that expulsion would be the most appropriate sentencing option, as the defendant clearly intended further harm to the Brotherhood. The Covenant requires that all expulsions be approved by a jury, so a sentencing jury was composed to review the material and whether expulsion was appropriate. The sentencing jury came to a unanimous decision that expulsion was appropriate in this case.

During his time in the Brotherhood, Maximus Raidoner has been charged by the Chamber of Justice with Abuse of Power, Crude Behavior, Hacking, and Disreputable Behavior (twice). In addition to this, he has been given numerous official warnings, countless IRC bans, and executive reprimands. While his past misconduct could be seen as a series of bad decisions, his newest violations were purposeful and premeditated. His clearly enunciated threats indicated he intended to continue his misconduct and do as much as possible to disrupt and damage the entire club. This type of behavior cannot be, and has not been, permitted in our organization.
