RE: Suspension
GirlyMan, he doesn't deserve an I.Q. that high. Be reasonable, and enter a number in the negatives.

I don't believe anyone will find it disagreeable that you banned a person who made death threats and slandered others.

It is unfortunate that these things happen and he couldn't control his feelings. The only thing we lost was a radical theist who couldn't come to term with facts and what we gained was a more literate forum.

I greatly respect your decision and very happy for informing us. Its qualities of a great leader.

Now lets sacrifice this pig in honor of our great mod.

I'm only joking about the last sentence and hope for more great decisions in the future.

Lucradis didn't ban him, Lucradis just banned his prick. Right now he's in like a some sorta Purgatory, where he can read but can't post unless and until he modifies his behavior or goes malevolent. I'm curious how he responds. ... I like the fact that the arrogant prick came here and thought he could play with us. Dude's got some cojones. But not much else, and Girly gets his testoterone exogenously, so nobody's cojones mean much to me.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

As I'm sure all of you are aware we have had our little forum filled to the brim recently with people who's behavior has been .... unbecoming of human beings. To say the least.
One of these members was Egor. He is still a member though he says he is temporarily gone. This guy I could handle.
The other guy I'm sure you can guess on. His conduct has constantly been of issue to me. He has received numerous warnings and requests and has ignored them all. I was trying hard to find some middle ground for how to deal with him. And failing.
There is no middle ground.
He crossed a line when it was brought to my attention that he once again has posted threatening comments. Now I know we all understand how the internet works and how it tends to spawn interthugs who cause no legitimate fear, but I find the behavior inexcusable.

Today I have suspended Abdelz from posting. I have sent him a message outlining why and how he will be allowed to return. I would do the same to any of you had I felt that your behavior was unwarranted.

Some of you will judge me hasty, or as though I have made a poor decision. It`s cool if you disagree. I`m sorry if you feel as though I`ve crossed the line.

Hopefully we can all go back to having civil discussions.

It was the logical decision to make...or as Spock might say "The needs of the many on this forum outweighed the needs of this one guy to spew out vulgarities"

Sorry, I was just under the assumption he would never change his ways and he probably would never come back.

RE: Suspension
Hmpf. Why oh why did he feel the need to inflict himself on us? I'm sure he could have found willing listeners elsewhere. Guess I never will understand the psychology of douchebaggery. He'll be back Sad

RE: Suspension
Well. thanks for all the support guys!

It's nice to hear. Hopefully you will continue to support me.

I have now Banned Abdelz. Permanently.

After suspending him and sending him a very polite private message explaining why, he responded with a ... very... let's just say he was very Abdelz.
I then replied to let him know he was no longer welcome here due to his behavior. Not something I actually wanted to do, but something I believe was entirely necessary. I don't take this decision lightly. It's not something I want to be doing. But I will do it when it becomes necessary.

I was very nice to him in my goodbye letter. I don't think he realizes the difference though, so I guess I could have just said fuck you and had the same effect.

However I have noticed a change in the general atmosphere (if that's possible in an internet environment) already having him gone. Maybe it's just the activity of some of the new members reviving the older threads focused more on entertainment... Who knows lol. I'd like to attribute it to Abdelz being gone. Makes me feel better.

WOO HOO!
It seems a few of us got got CCed on a response from AbdulZ to his warning from lucradis.Big Grin

It may have been his personal best piece of prose! Cool

If the powers-that-be approve, I will post a copy of it in this thread.

RE: Suspension
This forum is quickly becoming nothing more than a fascist organization that is interested only in self-promotion and silencing the TRUTH!!!

To be more specific, this forum is well within its rights to ban/suspend individuals from participating for valid reasons after giving adequate warnings of such possible actions. I agree with the decision based on the reasons given and have yet to see any indication that the admins are interested in doing anything close to my first statement. If I thought that were the case, I would have left long ago and not returned.
