Default Should Boo boo get parole?

In a recent talk with Boo boo, he informed me that he is willing to behave and wants to come back to MusicBanter and join us in bantering.

I for one think he deserves a second chance. Who is with me!?

EDIT BY CONAN:

Alright, let's get a little project going, eh? Let me make this clear that this chart won't change anything - but perhaps will just give us all a little more clear a perspective.

Boo Boo's Parole

4 - The only people petitioning for his return, are the people who have the least experience with him.

Legitimate entries will be added to the list.

First, he's well past the 2nd chance. He's honestly probably closer to 10.

Secondly, why? Has the Prog forum been less hoppin?

No one thats ever perma-banned comes back with a new attitude. You know why theres only ever been 3 who've had to ask, because everyone else who posts here isn't enough of a raging **** to get perma-banned in the first place.

He's had emotional barriers since he showed up here. He once got pissed at me and thought I hated him because of a fight over Sting. STING! I had to be told by another poster that he was even upset in the first place.

Don't get me wrong, the guy could be alright when he wanted to be. I liked his opinion, but for ****s sake, I think we've had enough.

I think he's a nice guy, I think he's funny, I think he contributes to the forum at least more then fucking guitarbizzarre, and I think the reason he was banned was outlandish to begin with. Everybody fights in the shoutbox, its really not that big of a deal.
And I think if upon his return he gets harassed, you should give warnings to said harassers.

Well... I don't know him aside from what I've heard of him. He seemed to have a good taste in music, and from his posts that I've come across he doesn't seem too bad. Personally, I believe in allowing people another chance, but then again I don't know enough about this to really give a decent answer. I think it would be interesting to see what would happen if someone could put him on "parole" (if that's possible - for all I know, terminating a ban may not be an option).

Yes, it has. It's for the most part just Tore with Skaligojurah and myself occasionally dropping in (along with a few others).

EDIT: Didn't see the poll. Voted 'yes'...

I voted yes and he better not make me feel sorry about that.
I like what I've seen so far.

What is this ? Some kind of pressure on mods to unban boo boo? I don't think it should work that way. I haven't been modded yet when boo boo got banned, but I understand that he has been given more chances than anyone else on this site. That's why I think it's important not to compromise in this case, but to go with one year ban all the way through. He'll be back, he's not permabanned.
