Can we ban him again?

Yeah but earlier his account was disab -- oh, I see Grindy beat me to it. Thought he'd been mugged by Marillion or something. Frownland, that is, not Grindy.

I'm responding to posts made in the Paris Attacks thread here because I agree with what Frownland did and ended the discussion in that thread. I just wanted to throw in my two pennies...

1. Moderators should simply be here to monitor spam, and ban people who are willfully idiots or crossing the line with their language when addressing other members. (that's it, period)

2. I wish the censorship on this website would stop, via deleting threads? If someone comes on here spewing racism or being offensive, let them hang themselves by leaving their threads up. It lets us know the idiots we need to steer clear of. JWB did not fall into this category.
1. You must have missed the time that JWB called a member a f*ggot because he watched The Evil Dead.

2. Leaving every single horrible thread up would make this forum look like a dumpster. That's like letting your roommate leave his garbage and dirty clothes around to teach him a lesson about being dirty. It still makes your apartment look like sh*t.

I'm taking this opportunity to publicly apologize for telling you to leave if you don't like our rules. I didn't have much patience left for the whole thing and was in a very sour mood. I shouldn't have said that. What I should have said was that the rules are rules and I'm going to enforce them. Shouldn't have been so rude with what I said. Sorry.

I know it was addressed, but I just want to highlight that JWB received SO MANY warnings about his behavior on here. Note what I said above about calling somebody a f*ggot. I didn't even ban him a day for that. I warned him. His warnings ran out.

It took a lot of effort to get banned.

My two cents on that.

He deserves to be banned for eternity. Hell, grab his email from his profile and sign him up for a spam grenade.

It's fine, I went about it the wrong way anyways. One time I legit permabanned someone somewhere because they said all non-electronic music was stupid. Then I signed them up for a spam grenade. You guys should seriously consider it, adds some real consequences. Instead of finding a new forum they also need to find a new email address.

The use of gender/sexual orientation related slurs has increased since Sansa/WD haven't been here to say anything about it to the people using them, and it's not just JWB.

I don't need a response, I just thought it was worth mentioning.

You know how Batty's gonna respond to that.
Seriously, I think the use of that term can be gauged. If it's used offensively, fine, warn or ban. If it's used humorously, maybe try to see the joke. If, for instance, someone I knew said "Ah you listen to those ***gots Marillion" or "What would a *** like you know about grindcore?" I would take precisely zero offence. I think the relationship to the person using the "slur" and the one used on, the intent and the foreseeable circumstances should all be taken into account. In the case of either of the above, can anyone see the likes of me running (hell with that: I'm too old to run anywhere!) to the mods to complain of being called a ***?

Of course it's a horrible word (though here we use it as a slang term for cigarettes, which lends new meaning to the phrase "I'm gasping for a ***!") but like all, or nearly all words that cause offence, it's the context, the intent and the potential damage that I believe should be looked at before it's acted upon.

That was a really nice apology, Exo.

I like how you acknowledge that you lost your patience, which we all do sometimes, and you explained that you wished you hadn't responded as you did.

I feel the kind of courteous honesty and self-moderation you demonstrated by apologizing benefits the forum greatly and, the more often it happens among mods and members alike, might even encourage some missing posters to return.
