Instead of looking at each weapon individually in a whitelist we could choose between two broader philosophies about banned weapons.
Philosophy A is the current global whitelist (alternatively the b4nny/valve major philosophy) which is to allow everything that doesn't break competitive 6v6.
In other words weapons that nobody uses in serious games because they aren't very good, but don't break the game, are all allowed. Think of the scout primary unlocks; pretty much nobody seriously uses them.
Philosophy B would be like something people have asked for in this/other threads and in the past, where you ban everything that doesn't contribute positively to the game.
Pretty much this would mean memey weapons (like the aforementioned scout unlocks) would be banned, because they are almost never used. Would anyone really care that much if they were banned?
Maybe this wouldn't even be a big deal, because these superfluous unlocks are pretty much only run in non-competitive games anyways, i.e. in games where there is a skill gap between both teams and one/both start memeing because they give up, in aids doublemixes, games of meme teams with meme compositions (that usually consist of sandbaggers anyways), etc.
Why not have a poll where people choose between these broad ideas, and only then discussing individual weapons?
