I’d like to address the issue of copying comments out of a Nation, posting it in another Nation and discussing that person’s comment there. After a discussion with the other mods, we have determined this behavior to be a no-no.
First, Nations are designed as a way for Viners' to share and discuss the news and other interesting topics together. These conversations are intimate and built around the community in that Nation. So if you aren’t in that community, for whatever reason, it really isn’t within the spirit and the purpose of the Vine to take out a comment and discuss it elsewhere.
Second, it has been our experience when looking at these copy/paste comments in practice that the majority of them are not very nice. The intention is usually to inflame situations, attack users, or gripe about not being allowed to comment in that Nation. This is also not within the spirit and the purpose of the site.
Third, it can be very frustrating for an author to have their comment copied to another Nation they cannot participate in and oftentimes being mocked for said comment: also not within the spirit and the purpose of the Vine.
I know it can be frustrating to not be allowed to comment in a Nation. This is something we are addressing on a case-by-case basis as it is reported and taking more action on Admins who are in violation of our updated Code of Honor. We've also created a moderated Nation, called The Spirit and the Purpose, where you can be sure you will not run into that issue.
However, let’s practice the policy of keeping our conversations as just that: our conversations. Don’t copy and paste other Viners’ comments from Nation to Nation, folks.
