Facepalm

Because they don't like the fact that he was even given a chance.

Well you know what I don't like? The economy. Let me bitch about that instead.

No what we don't like is that this guy was allowed to flaunt the rules after already chasing off a forum member. Then instead of being kicked, as he should have been, he is given this bullshit 2 week sentence so he can continue his games. If instead of fretting over every single thing the admins would just make a fucking decision for a change there would be nothing to bitch about.

RE: Wicked Clown
I think not having a discussion...just because you feel you might be "acting according to his plan" is silly. If people want to talk about it, I don't see a problem with letting them. Who cares if he is watching and smiling.."good for him" haha.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Yea well, I know plenty of those and none of them are incarcerated Dodgy ... not yet, anyway.

Oh shit, come to think of it, I do have an acquaintance awaiting his court date in Sept. Stupid fucker... he leaves little doubt he'll fuck that up, too.

It's just so shit when they go off their prescribed meds and self medicate with the super fabulous street drugs. The already erratic behavior is enhanced beyond comprehension. They literally suck the life out of every virtual and living thing around them.

Consider
Anyone here been to jail lately? Kook house, maybe? Is there anything specific I shouldn't wear for visiting day? Where's HoC when ya need him, huh? Shy

Maybe I'm just naive, but there are some people whom have been abused all their lives, brainwashed from the time they were still in diapers.
Taught that atheists are evil, taught that without god, without morals humans would just be filthy animals, killing and raping each other.

I don't know if this is the case with Wicked Clown but I don't think there is value in us abusing these people and then banning them.
They need a channel to wake them up, to at least try and get them to see how the world can be looked out without the rosey glasses of Christian belief. I doubt we could convert someone but it would be great if we can soften their stance a little.

There are many types of this. Some just bathe in their own glow, some need to establish their superiority by installing fear in others. And several levels in between. Some are harmless, some are very malignant.

It's cruel to abuse them. We should simply ban them. Drinking Beverage

There is no good reason to allow one person to fuck the place up for everyone else.

Because once's that precedent has been set then it will get used more and more and we will lose potentially awesome members because of it. It's the exact same reason we have a legal system that can see suspected murderers walk free even though the police "know" they're guilty (and how many people here would promote a legal system that allow the police to lock up people without trial indefinitely just because they "knew" it was the right thing to do?).

And I know people may say that losing the odd good member by mistake is a good price to pay to see off certain others but that's very easy to say when you aren't the one being booted. I mean, if the Admins did decide to ban anyone they subjectively thought was a "problem" but they one day they decided you were a problem and banned you, would you congratulate that decision?

He wasn't allowed to flaunt the rules. He made a joke that broke a rule, and was warned. He also posted that smiley which was removed but, before that happened half the FT didn't realise that smileys could be classed as porn (still not sure on the legality btw), and some of us had even posted similar stuff ourselves (and before anyone says that it's obviously porn, no-one has ever reported a similar post until WC posted one). Given that half the team were unclear on that specific aspect of that rule it's kinda hard to expect newbies to be perfectly clear on it.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

You exaggerate the likelihood of that. You think your stance is admirable, but it is just naive.
