So you spent 17,000+ posts and months following around Dan Druff just to make everyone THINK you're a weird middle-aged obsessed stalker?

Well, congrats, you succeeded.

Re: More On Banning

This thread had so much potential, and then around page 3 it just spiraled into worthlessness.

Mason wrote: “Phillips also made personal attacks towards one of our volunteer moderators.” From all I can determine, Paul’s “personal attack” consisted solely of “And this fellow dynasty pours fuel on the fire by boasting about all the people he's banned.”

That’s no personal attack, which instead might be “And this fellow dynasty is a prick for fueling the fire with his boasts about all the people he’s banned.”

Do you see the difference, Mason, between describing the conduct and describing the person? I don’t know whether your error is a misrecollection, a misdirection, or an outright lie. Given the time that’s passed since all this happened, I suppose any are possible. But your characterization of Paul's conduct here is flat wrong here unless I’m missing something. If I am, please articulate Paul’s “personal attack” on a mod to set the record straight. If not, please post an apology.

By the way, I did in fact misremember the underlying events. The reality of it is that Paul had promised to walk if any of his posts were deleted. Mat deleted a thread Paul had started, which included criticisms of the 2p2 interface as well as the above statement on dynasty. Mason asked Paul to apologize both publicly and privately. Paul rather predictably posted an ironic apology, so Mason banned him. Some wag started a poll about whether Paul should be banned, and after that ran 80-20 in favor of reinstatement, Mason did so – but given Paul’s initial promise, Paul was gone and gone for good by that time. Paul’s LJ describes all of this rather more colorfully, but I hesitate to link that here for fear Mason (or perhaps dynasty) will ban me for it – although that now may be inevitable no matter what.

I'll hold my breath for your response, Mason.

Why should I know any of this. I never looked at NWP until a few days ago, and don't even know who Dan Druff (aka Todd Witteles) is. And in case I have met him, you need to understand that's lots of people introduce themselves to me and I don't remember who most of them are or what they may look like.

But I do know this. When I took a good look at NWP, it was simply sickening. We have given the boot to others on www.twoplustwo.com for fomenting hate, so this is completely consistent with what we have done in the past.

However, there is an exception here which we have never made before. We have announced that if Druff is really the quality person you and others say he is, he'll either disassociate himself from the hate, or begin the process of cleaning it up. When either of those happen he can come back.

I don't read NWP at all. However, didn't Druff say that he was very outspoken against people bad-mouthing Sue? Wouldn't this constitute "begin[ing] the process of cleaning it up"?

IF this is really true, then shouldn't he be reinstated now?
