We already discussed about this multiple times, but in my point of view, as I always say, things could've been better.
There are lots of toxic people in this site, but there are also lots of people that just come here for the fun and gags, in some cases, it results in a 'bad behavior' as spam or similar stuff.
E.g - "+1" chains, other chains, memes and gags, that's basically most of what hltv is all about, at least to me, been that way for decades, and that's probably why I'm here.
But how do you deal with this? hltv's resolve seems to be by banning such people, banning people for writing +1 as a joke, as if someone is going to die because of that.
If there's a "+1" chain, on an off topic thread(and I won't even get on with off topic threads as there is no sense at all there), seriously, what's so wrong with that?
You don't like it? Just delete the root chain comment and be done with it, do you really need to ban everyone who merely wrote "+1"?
This is the part that makes me hate the current way hltv is handled, sure, sometimes you need to ban people if they behave like shit, but can't you sometimes just delete these comments instead of banning if you think it's that 'awful'?
