@Lyte, what's your thoughts on Tribunal members like me?
I was wondering how you feel about Tribunal members which share a similar philosophy to how I pardon and punish.
I skip probably about 40% of the cases that come my way. This isn't due to laziness, or anything along those lines. I've been a member of the Tribunal since season one and always read every case unless something inexcusable occurs, and when those happen I don't spend the time to read the rest.
The reason I skip so many cases is that I don't like to select pardon or punish unless my heart is fully behind the decision. I find many cases where someone breaks the Summoner's Code, but the degree in which it is broken falls into a gray zone for me. In these cases I feel like it could be rightfully punished or rightfully pardoned.
I'm sure there are those of you who are going to say that I skip a lot of cases in an attempt to force my accuracy higher. I can see why you'd come to that conclusion. That's not the case. I simply don't like making a judgement that I'm not 100% sure I'm willing to stand behind.
Also, will this lead to my case load being reduced? I would hope not, because I put a lot of thought into my cases, but I guess I would understand if that was the case, since I skip so often.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts. I'm a big fan of the Tribunal and I love the effect the honor system has had since its been implemented.
