    Banning in general shouldn’t be done frivolously

    He doesn’t post here, hasn’t for years, so banning him shouldn’t cause any fuss.

    Given certain PM discussions I've had with other board members about who Storm is, he's a creep on top of a white nationalist. That he was allowed to be as gross as he was towards TKO when Ted was tossed over far less should've never stood.

    If I still owned the place, I would've pulled the trigger days ago without a second thought. I say this as someone who was willing to give gtardo another shot even after his backhanded shit stirring and there was no single poster I hated during my time than he.

    For christ's sake take a hard stand on this. Please.

    Done.

    I get Anc's reasoning for not doing it, but not having to deal with it in real time in the future is what pushed it over the edge for me.

    Out of morbid curiosity would you mind sharing what other creepster stuff he did?

    Not that I get a say, but banning him is definitely the right choice.

    Like I said, it's PM. Even on a closed forum like this I don't wanna put shit out there outta respect for the guy who told me. I'll ask if he can tag you into the convo tho.
