That's not true. At all.

Aren't you confusing members with big personalities (of which there are plenty enough here) with attention seeking douche bags?

Hyperbolic, but there is definitely some truth here.

This could well be.

There's a difference between someone being interesting and entertaining. And even with that distinction, it's an untrue statement. Urban Hatemonger, for example, is very entertaining. Numberninedream is a very interesting person. Neither have to bend rules or try to be "edgy" to be liked.

Basically, I stand by my statement. I know you all have a fairly tight knit little group here, and you've come to know each other well. But to a casual MBer, anyone here that you don't have to get to know in order to be considered interesting/funny/unique has been banned. I know there are tons of great people here who lead very interesting lives, and that's different. I'm talking about a forum personality. A troll, to use an antieuphemism.

On second thoughts I think you're right.
We should glorify those "interesting" members who choose to harass other decent/boring members, in the name of entertainment!

If you choose to go to a website for entertainment purposes, I agree.

You may disagree if you were the one who had to run around fielding pm's of complaint, deleting inappropriate posts and stupid threads and generally cleaning up the boards wasting your own precious time wiping the arses of these particular individuals in the name of "entertainment".

There's a reason that some of the longer standing mods are often accused of being (appearing) "ban happy".
It's called experience.
