I am disappoint.

I highlighted that huge gap to try and find some hidden text.

I'm sure. Angel.
I'm a Canadian citizen now so I had to pledge to the Queen that I wouldnt associate with NRA members after singing for god to keep our land. Why do Canadians keep those awful lyrics in their anthem I'll never know.

No worries. That line refers to David Suzuki..
Or maybe its the guy that played Relic on the Beachcombers.

This. And he should have stopped when he was called out by admin to do so. But he couldn't leave it alone.
Well, its been obvious that people can abuse (and ignore) the admins all they like, given Chippy did this regularly. An Admin isn't special in that they are above the level of abuse the rest of us take from idiots like Chippy.

Personally I don't think Chippy looking up information freely available on the internet is of any harm. But what he was doing by introducing that information into his personal attacks on Cathy does take personal attacks to a whole nother level. He did the same this with Fulton didn't he? Attacking his place of education...

What I think was much worse was when he attacked IndianAtheist for being an Indian. If this forum tolerates individual members driving people away based purely on their citizenship or race then that is a much bigger problem. Indians make up 1/6th of the entire human population on Earth, Indian's have a lot to offer and it would be a shame to miss out on that because this forum tolerates racist behaviour.
I also think it is a shame when atheists make outright attacks on Christians that participate on this forum. As far as I see it, the Christians are victims of the brainwashing that has been devised over thousands of years and mostly likely has been thrust on them from a very young age. Beliefs are hard to break, especially when you view the world with a lens custom built with that belief system and are probably surrounded by friends and family that constantly keep that belief at the forfront of your being. Abusing them just makes them think Atheists are angry vile people in need of salvation.

Anyway, Cathy, you owe no one any explanation.

Yup. Cyber stalking is one thing. Threatening cyber bullying is another thing entirely. Wouldn't have mattered if it was actually you or not, that was the easiest ban call to make this side of the spam bridge. Threatening to expose personal information like name and address on an atheist forum where not everyone is out doesn't even deserve a warning. I don't generally comment on or take a position on banning ever since I got embroiled in that whole RedCelt fiasco. Ain't my job. But that one was a no-brainer. The philosopher king and queen got this. Thumbsup

In my mother's euphoria, I was named after him while my sister was named after grandma. Therefore, My legal name is a "typical" man's name. I operate under an alias, because I'm tired of everyone getting confused because I am a woman. (Like when I'm on the phone, or meet someone for the first time). We often use the same screen name for things.

So when chippy decided to look me up, he saw my sister. Then proceeded to dig into HER life. And because we are identical twins, and are very close, we do as twins do...and have a lot of common things in our lives. We both went to UB, (I went onto Cornell she went onto NYU). we both own our own businesses, etc. etc.

So it wasn't stalking in that he was digging up info on ME, but he was digging up info on HER. Which is irrelevant....he shouldn't have been digging into anyone's life. Google is wonderful, but it can also get you into trouble.

wow ... i'm not sure I can find a FAIL gif big enough for that. For a smart guy that was pretty fucking stupid.

And now y'all know the rest of the story... I believe only me... maybe Rora... was privy to this knowledge, and this is why I dealt with it the way I did. I even had a few members that are highly regarded openly oppose my action to ban him. And, that's okay. Based on their knowledge, they felt I was unjust.

I let all the haters hate on me because that's my job. I didn't tell anyone else what Chippy was really doing and how harmful and effin creepy it was out of respect for Cathy.

Just have faith in us, guys. Our group... the FT... is composed of people who truly want the best for not only the forum but also all its participants. It's not an easy job and we do it for free. It is completely thankless and usually a royal pain in the butt, but we commit ourselves to it because we love the community.

It has since fallen into disrepair, but it's the thought that counts. Yes

I been scouring through these woods trying to track him for a while now and all I can find is "Sorry. This person has moved or deleted this image." I think Interpol might've finally caught up with him.

That's a shame, he was very helpfull when it came to philoophy but he was a little too prone to get into fights with people over petty stuff.

He tended to rely on maxims and confusing logic-speak.

It's funny really, no matter what we do or how "by the book" we play it, someone is going to get mad at the outcome of the situation.

Ban him!
Don't ban him!
He shouldn't have been banned!
Why did his banning take so long?
Why did you rush to ban him?
His threats weren't real!
His threats deserve a banning!
Why did he get banned? He didn't do anything.
Good job admins / mods!
Admins / mods made a terrible and unfair decision to ban him.

These are just a few of the comments I've received or read on the situation.

Take that for what you will...
