my post doesnt necessarily have to be interpreted as an earnest defense of epi. mebbe it was just an opportunity to call him and pbh dumb.

I've always thought, behind the incoherent typing and grammar, lay a reasonably bright person. (Epipen) The fact that he appears to have Down Syndrome is sad.

nailed it on the head 100%. I don't get why people think this is a reasonable defense against, ostensibly, trolling. ("Even if benign")

In what world do you defend someone by calling them mentally ******ed? The best part is that he probably loves this angle of defense.
Its completely possible to be both a troll and mentally ******ed.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Poster Wake, and Forum Discussion

I chat in Skype and I find Epi getting permad to be hilarious and correct

But I don't think he's a troll at all. He believes a lot of the insane stuff he says, and (his biggest negative as a poster) derails any thread he's involved in with like the same 6-7 arguments

You can say a lot negatively about Epipen, but he's still much more intelligent than both of you, especially TSC.

The mods (well really just tuq, Clark is pretty fair) has personal dislike for some people, doesn't even 95% of their posts, yet has no problem forming opinions on them. TimmayB's post was spot on.

Get thicker skin then I guess. One thing about Epi is that while he dished it out a bunch he never complained about taking it, and he's been the butt of more jokes than maybe any other poster here.

We get it, you think SZ is everything that is wrong with SE.

Instead of constantly bitching about high-volume, harmless, fun posters maybe you should work on not being such a bad mod and this thread and most of SE wouldn't be such a **** show all the time.
Just adding that I had nothing to do with this post, though I support it fully. I'll also add that I don't tuq is even that bad of a mod. He's a much worse poster who adds basically no value to this forum. It really makes me wonder what he gets out of this forum anymore. I know what I like and enjoy about this site. I cannot fathom what tuq does.

Epi has not even posted at a high volume since he moved to Canada. It's just that when he gets into a debate he beats it to the ground. There are a lot of posters who are guilty of that.

Nobody is saying that. There are tons of interesting posters who don't piss people off. There are also some really good posters that do piss people off. I don't understand why "pissing people off" should be a permanently bannable offense. I mean, if it is it is, but this forum will get worse off for it.

The whole "Brady/WIM/Ke$ha/etc." stuff was mildly funny once maybe, but it got stale really, really fast.
It wasn't a shtick though. He really believes Brady is much better than Peyton and trust me, he really believes We R Who We R is the best song ever made. If he doesn't believe it then he's deranged given the amount of time he spent talking about it on Skype. I really don't think he's made that many Ke$ha posts here though. For some reason people just get extra mad at them for little to no reason.

The WIM/Choking stuff is also something he (and I) believe in and when you're a big minority on a topic, you're going to end up arguing my yourself a lot. I don't understand why you people think it was all a shtick. The biggest problem with SE is how a sheepish consensus gets formed and then anyone who disagrees is trolling.

This is a fair (yet very hyperbolic) criticism that I mentioned yesterday. What can be done about it though? He's not breaking any rules by talking about overrated lump of **** Kendrick Perkins. As with most complaints on this site, complaining about something is usually much less effective then simply talking about something more engaging.

LOL, also, I'd be pretty surprised if Epi was creatively capable of staying under the radar for too long.

fwiw Tim and Epi constantly went at each other on Skype because Tim thinks Akon is horrible.

This is fine. I don't even like that I'm defending him since I'm not even a fan, but since I didn't give tuq a chance to flex his muscles last time he made a laughable ultimatum, I figured I'd be a nice guy and indulge him this time.

The reason the Epi perma was ******ed was if that was worth a perma then he should have been perma'd already (as should many others). He did nothing wrong since coming back the final time. Was he ever PM'd saying this was his last warning? He's made posts that deserved bans yet what he ultimately was banned for was ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous what I'm going to be banned over for this post despite behaving pretty cordially to everyone on this site (including those who supposedly I don't like and don't like me) for a pretty long time now. But hey, mods ghana mod.

If I was afraid of getting banned I would not have made this post.

I think almost all bans are flat out wrong but I'm probably somewhere between the 10-30%.

Yeah just to be clear my post was 100% directed at tuq recently (like I said like 3 years ago I thought he was the best mod in SE). Not sure why Clark came at me with so much fury.
