Lament For The Fallen (Banned)

I don't care how controversial they were, I miss Danyal and Boudica. They had interesting things to say. And of course, Matthew94 and Vault101 will be missed by all. And while I can't really say I'll miss him, I don't really think Katatori-Kun's post was all that ban worthy. I guess in the end, people's reactions really did mean more than the intent of the words.

Zeel:
Also, I WHOLE HEARTILY disagree with 'insulting' being worse than image macros/low content post. Whenever insults are thrown is because the person deserves it, aka acting like a massive idiot.

Where as low content posting and image macroin' is a clear sign of an unoriginal, unfunny jackass.

I'm going to have to totally disagree. Out of my three years here, I've seen only a few dozen or so times when people got insults thrown at them because they weren't being too bright.

I would also say that nobody really deserves to be insulted, doesn't matter if they are being a "massive idiot" or not. All you have to do is politely tell them why they are wrong, or just move along if you can't.

I've had insults thrown at me several times, and in every case it was when I made a calm and logical response(with proof) to tell someone how they were thinking incorrectly or that I just disagreed with their views.

More often than not most insults I've seen are thrown at the people that respond in calm and logical ways.

Zeel:
That Zeel guy was such a handsome, clever and pleasant fellow too! Why do the good die so young?

HA! Vault101 got banned? Oh man, the irony of this is too sweet for me. I'm gonna get cavities.

in the end, you'll only get more mass effect 3...

To me, it is. Whenever I write a post that I think might attract mod wrath, I follow my own advice. Either try to reword it so it's safe, or I simply let the matter drop. If I can't make a point without being rude, then I reckon it's not a point worth making.

Okay, but I've gotten 3 warnings, and none were for being "rude".

Low content posts, mentioning the T word, revealing that you've pirated stuff before, these and more can land you a warning. Sometimes things that are said jokingly can get you into trouble too because the mods can't always tell you aren't being serious.

I'm guessing you're already aware of all this, but if not you should know, you do have to be pretty careful.

madwarper:

you make it seem like violating the CoC is inevitable when you post often. I know for a fact that's false.

I'm not saying it's inevitable, but your odds certainly increase if you post more often. That's basically a statistical fact.

Completely avoiding violations is certainly possible, even with a high post count, but we all make mistakes, we're human beings.

T-Word!? ... Titties? Teabagging? Transvestite?

Keoul:
the only thing I really noticed about Vault was their poor spelling and grammar, funny chap. The others I never really encountered.

Wonder if Daystar would ever get the ban, now that would be a national tragedy.

Yeah, that always bugged me a bit about her. But we always had fun conversations.

And if Daystar ever got banned then half the forum would probably go up in smoke.

Part of the CoC is that calling another user a Troll is something that gives you a warning

YOU!

How'd YOU get back in here?

Back on your topic: Not really. Some things are just easier to explain with a picture as a supplement, you know, "picture, worth a thousand words" and all that jazz. Besides, as I recall your definition of a person "deserving [being insulted]" was "they disagreed with you, regardless of how good their reasons".

I notice a lack of MaxTheReaper on that list. He was mighty prolific back when I joined.

I kinda miss Vault101's grammatically awful posts, but only kinda. She was alright.

Daystar Clarion:
*snip*

If the mods ban you, they basically have a revolution on their hands.

Which I shall be a part of...

I think you guys grossly overestimate my importance to this place.

Offworlder:
I remember there was that Max guy (can't remember the full username) when I first started on here. He was a writer as I recall, and he had a tonne of posts. Then he got banned for...something, I remember he was there one day then he wasn't. Not sure if people lamented, back a few people mentioned him over time, the memories aren't clear, it was a while ago.

Max The Reaper, all these darn new posters wouldn't remember him :P

chiggerwood:
Me personally? I'm glad to see that the ban hammer's still strong and that the moderators are trying to keep tings sane and clean around here. Truth be told, the harshness of the mods is what attracted me to these forums in the first place. Hell I remember it used to be that you would usually see three to four bans a thread. It made the site civil and the people intelligent, I'm still of the old thinking and I believe that the forum health meter should go, and the old harshness return. Having said that I can see why they put it in place, mercy should be a virtue. I am a little sad to see Vault 101 go mind you, I really liked her avatar.

This place used to be ridiculously iron fisted in 2008 - 2009. It was both a blessing and a curse, as you couldn't slip for even a single post. Though, I do agree, and without trying to sound like an uppity snobbish prick, that the general caliber of poster was higher. Or rather, they were forced to be higher.

There were no meme images or reaction gifs floating around, posting those would get you warned or banned temporarily. Now they're everywhere.

I recognize two of those names! I don't post enough to get attention so I can't see myself joining that wall... granted I'd probably never make a name for myself since I will not post in the controversial threads :p

Daystar Clarion:

Daystar, I like you. I generally agree with your opinions when you post and you got a cool Amaterasu avatar. However, I'll admit, I never truly understood the obsession with you on this forum :P

AC10:

Trust me, neither do I dude, neither do I.

I'm not even sure how it's possible to get banned on these forums.

Just don't be a dick. That's pretty much all there is to it.

Daystar Clarion:

Whatever you say, my lord and savior.

In all seriousness though, you are pretty important. but the bigger thing would be the symbol - that a poster of your classiness is not welcome here. i've got plenty of other things to do with my time, and if i can't see awesome people being awesome, i don't see the point of spending my time here.
.

I miss Vault, for some reason we kept ending up in the same threads, I never thought vault as rude or that inflammatory, spelling and grammar could've used a little work, but it was very legible. Other than that, i've not really noticed many other people who've been banned

I have removed my words from this site.

MeChaNiZ3D:
I think Katatori-kun got banned more recently than even Vault, which is unfortunate. I had a good debate with him at one stage, and the post he got banned over wasn't remotely offensive, just bitter.

I didn't really care for Vault though to be honest. I think I even reported a post once because it was irrelevant to the topic. I wouldn't have banned her myself, but considering what others have been banned for, she did pretty well.

And I was about to bring up that I saw Zeel having posted in another thread just now, but hey, saved me the trouble by posting in this one.

In the end, of the ones that I recognise, I personally would not have banned them, but I can see why they were banned.

Katatori got banned? WHAT THE FU**?!

I swear the R&P Grim Reaper has a mind of its own.

OT: I started the "Mourn for Vault101" thread and almost made Spider-Mod cry in the process. It is sad that some people get banned despite being generally nice people. Everyone follows the same rules I suppose.

Not that it really matters, but why was the move required?

Torrent. that is all!
not really, just answering the question..........don't ban me

If your list includes all these NewScapists, but does not include MaxTheReaper, Furburt, Hubilub, and IdealistCommi, it can not be said to be a good list.

thaluikhain:
Well, there was Gunsmith Kitten, got banned for having a go at Japan.

Four pages, and a single mention of Gunsmith Kitten? She was just as vocal as Boudica, and twice as crazy. Besides, Boudica asked for a ban herself, didn't she?

What happened to Kitten anyhow? Last fall, as opinionated and angry as she was, she was still going pretty clean with one or two infractions to her name. I'm gone a couple of months, and when I come back she's banned for the aforementioned Japan post. Did she just go nuts with the warns over the winter, or was that one post over the top enough to drop the hammer on her?

Well the main ban that sucked as far as I was concerned was Matthew94, but I still chat to him on Steam anyway so it's been no big deal in the long run. (:

It's the natural flow of things - you either get banned before you grow tired, or live long enough to slowly get sick of the forums.

It's been a while now, maybe he could get back in :D

I miss that angry Irish bastard.

Wish they could get rid of that one kid who always posts on every single news item, at this point I'm doubting he has time to actually game.

I hate to admit I know none of these people, though I did see Vault101's banning. Seemed like it didn't really justify a banning, even the OP said it didn't bother him (if I remember correctly) and that was who the post was directed at. It was a picture of a whining toddler.
Oh well, I don't post often anyway which is why I probably don't remember them, the only guys I really remember anymore are Daystar and Fappy. Though I do tend to see a few avatar images a lot that probably are the same person, I just never pay attention to their names.

MaxTheReaper

He was always nice to me.

Hell, this thread alone has made it kinda....creepy.

It's like people have gone from "Oh Daystar"

to

"Oh....Daystar...."

Franky your charm is lost on me because I liked Okami waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before you so HA! I kid though, you're alright guy.

OT: I'll miss one or two of the names on that list but I'd be lying if I said I didn't do a little double take to see some of them go. It's really not that hard to post without being a dickhead, besides, if Zeel is back then there's hope for all of them.

I have no problem with Boudicia getting banned. She seemed as unlikeable and misinformed as she was outspoken.

There sure are a lot of T-words on this forum. Heaven forbid we ever have a Transvestite/transsexual user making a troll topic about torrenting DVDs.
