I also think the response to his issues beforehand, the massive cut in his post count and the seeming blame of him for the Hotties Forum debacle, was a clear factor in his frustrated outburst.
Information that was not available at the time of my "abortion", if you recall.And as for the length, he's not banned for two years, as you've been already informed (despite his 2nd go round of a GJH/Kleck level rant).
No, I don't owe Paulie anything, Paulie is (IMO) far too thin-skinned and grudge holding at times. I'd know, they were some of my own more serious faults.....And yes, your thread was absolutely an abortion. JMO, but you owe Paulie an apology. You don't think so, that's cool. But don't pretend that you didn't intend it in that manner - that's also insulting.
With that said, I've said often, including in my "abortion", that Paulie is a better Mod than I was. Given my massive inflated ego, you'd think that would be seen as the clear praise it's intended as.
I do aye. Select trolls get a far longer leash. Jets Fan a far shoter one.If you think things have changed, that's your prerogative.
Probably true enough. I could, just for giggles, say I'm unbannable (in order to provoke the obvious banning such a claim would incite), but why play that game today, eh? We know you folks are the authority here, no need for me to help you prove it.But, I hope you consider yourself in the group that gets the free pass for the number of times you've engaged in personal attacks on people you don't deem to be worthy of posting here and the obvious taunt of seeing whether we'll do anything.
And you do a good job Crash, again, as I've said. While I think all of you are far FAR too lenient with certain Trolls (perhaps even including myself some days), I do think you all do a good job overall.You know the impossibility of pleasing everyone here, to the point where I'm not going to bother to try. I know for me personally, I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and as much leeway as possible.
It seems that there is difficulty dealing with one select criticism (since addressed given the ban isn't in fact 2 years) amongst a host of priase, as if it can only be all of one or all of the other. Is it not possible to disagree with one small portion of things (in this case the length), but agree ingeneral terms with almost everythign else?
TLDR Version: If Boro had been banned a week, my "abortion" never would have happened.
The goal posts have somewhat shifted in this situation and that's disappointing, but I guess not all that surprising when the offender is a popular guy.
Something I understand far more than you might think mate. You most certainly have my sympathies, not that you need or desire them.
Treading old ground here, and I can see where it's headed. Sometimes I envy the trolls who post nothing but one-liners. Must be a far far easier experience than feeling the need to try and expalin oneself.
