I should have typed "completely eradicate"...which are two separate words precisely.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

I would be curious to find out why ikestoys was banned. He's usually pretty good about avoiding bans, but he did bad-mouth spank. Just wondering if spank's glorious new freedom regime has already started knocking out the unmentionables.

Figured it was Politics or SE, couldn't resist seeing if you'd panic when you remembered what you did last night.

And now I'm looking in your mind and thinking of another orange, in another place, far, far away. I'm thinking of a modern Restoration, a renewal of the faith. Let it be...

As long as you don't have a problem with the original Wookie, I think it's alright.

After a while I stopped bothering to even open 4L because his garbage threads always infested the place. And I mean these threads are garbage for 4L. Check them out for yourself as Tuma's been kind enough to be constantly bumping these threads ever since Spike's been banned.
Spike usually had something to say. It was just a matter of deciphering it. He added some personality and volume to 4L, which frankly does not have a lot of traffic. Taking Spike away hurt 4L. Was not around when 4L was in its heyday, but it is limping along these days.

Wish there was a better remedy for whatever Spike did than a total ban.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

it would also be nice to see evidence of his vitriolic posting which led to getting banned. quite frankly it sounds like a mod got tired of dealing with him and perma'd him while being unaware of how it would affect the community.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

Sounds more like a select few members of the community prone to histrionics are ignoring the poster's history and hoping that if they're a big enough of a pain in the ass their pet idiot will be unbanned.

You backed the wrong horse, now it's glue. Move on. Grow up.

Ignoring what history? All we've ever seen of him has been good-natured posting.

I guess you didn't ignore this- since you just responded claiming he wasn't racist in a one line post. Pretty convincing argument in the face of notes from multiple mods.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

What did he say that was racist? Which 10 forums did he catch infractions in?

If he was a toxic poster it shouldn't be hard to pull up postings that contributed to his permaban.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

Tuma, man, let it go. I would prefer that spike be unbanned and exiled from other forums as necessary, but as one of the few people who is familiar with his posting in both 4L and Politards, I am not even remotely surprised that he got banned, and it's not a hill I am willing to die on.

Exile should not be an option for bigots. That's a site wide rule.

This is way too specific, how do you expect Dids to react to this using only the words lol biggot and racist ? Thats not very fair of you.
