Especially given that mods can't comment on/discuss the matter unless the suspended user brings it up, it's not the sort of thing that can be meaningfully discussed without that user present – and in general, it's not the sort of thing that should be litigated in the "court of public opinion". If a user feels that moderation action taken against them is unfair/inappropriate, that user can contact the CMs to appeal.

1. Do nothing
2. Send a moderator message ("serious" matters only)
3. Suspension
