The purpose of Lifeline Feed is a place for community members to gather and discuss any topic that they see fit.
Punishments to channel users vary by judgement of the moderator and the rule which was broken.
Moderators reserve the right to enact any temporary rules they see fitting for the situation, in order to keep the channel peaceful.
If an argument arises in the channel and there is seemingly no end to it, the moderators have the right to interfere when they see fit. In this case, the channel may be muted.
If you have a problem with a specific moderator that you believe could be resolved by talking to that moderator, contact them via a query and get it settled. If you have a problem with a moderator that can not be solved by talking to them, contact another moderator.
In order to enforce these rules, mods can and will kick and/or ban. Bans are rarely permanent, but they can be (for example, if you're an obvious spam bot).
