Well I can see that now!GarryB wrote:Congrats on what I believe to be the longest comment in RMF history...
That is not even a medium sized post from me...
Then for the tenth time... Why did we ban T055? He was *only* expressing his opinion, and he wasn't the one to get personal in his discussions... It was myself, and you for that matter. If anything, he was only guilty of inflaming arguments... Hmmmmm.... Wonder who else has done that before?
I didn't ban him. Vlad banned him.
He was "getting abused" and yet had the most realistic (and inevitably proven) opinion on the issue. - That is proof in its own right.
He was getting abused, but if you want me to be harder on banning for that most of the time I would have banned TR-1 as well because the abuse went both ways.
T055 was a little girl about it cause he was getting ******* by you and me + others when responding. He'd post one thing, we'd get personal on him, and then inevitably he'd get personal... His reward for this? Getting IP banned...
Interesting... so T055 was a victim and was not trolling. He responded to abuse?
For **** sake GarryB, he is now saying that Africans and Blacks and Indians and Asians and Jews and Muslims etc have contributed nothing to this forum, and yet you have no problem with this blatant racism?
If you want to class it with one term it would have to be bigotry because Judiasm and the Islamic religion are not races.
Do I need to tell you such beliefs are ignorant?
Do I have to tell you he is wrong and that Africa, India, Asia and also South America and central America are rich with knowledge and talent and skills... beautiful, intelligent, friendly people...
Do I have to tell you most religions have a bit of dirt on them but generally teach people how to live right and are really just a set of codes and rules to interact with others in a civilised society by.
It is their misuse by unscrupulous people that gives them their bad name.
It is obviously an attempt to inflame, nothing more and nothing less.
It is so obvious and no one reported it and several replied to him... just as he wanted.
It's hilarious to me that when a guy with a simple pro-Chinese stance joins the site, he is banned, but "oh no" we can't ban a different *racist and offensively so* member just because he has a different opinion... Make no sense what so ever, to me at least.
I didn't ban him. Things were getting out of control and Vlad made a decision to solve the problem.
i clearly should have acted earlier, but I tend to be too soft sometimes.
You = Mod, yeah.... you get what I mean.
There was no reason to have even considered banning TR-1... He, like you and I, was tired of the ridiculous nonsense getting spewed in that thread... By both sides...
Yeah he had a bit of troll in em', but so did I...
Of course not, but blatant, offensive (to members on the forum) racism should not be tolerated, no matter who is posting and what opinions they share/don't share etc.
Point being? A troll getting what he wants is no less a troll than one who doesn't.
Anyway, as I'm late to responding... Thanks for using responsible (not excessive) action. I hope you understand that I indeed respect your judgement on these matters... And nope, I don't expect to get a reply as this thread has already been trashed...
