    Since the thread in question was lost to the ravages of a magnetic read/write head, I cannot quote the posts (and Google didn't cache them, [-]un[/-]fortunately. However, Zombie revealed exactly what 14thDoctor was doing. 14thDoc said there was no evidence he could have known the poster's first name (WHICH, BTW, HAS NOT BEEN REVEALED BY SAID POSTER, SO STOP POSTING IT IN THE RR THREAD :ualbert:). However, this was demonstrably false (see the thread at TK). For the rest, again, see post 351. The circumstances are identical.

    Well, if Garamet got banned for something similar that Jamey got banned for, let them both back in dammit.

    I think permabans should be reserved for noobs who show up just for trolling purposes and Packard. Let them all back in, even Cass.

    So that's it, then? Jamey gets banned and it's open season on my personal information for everyone else?

    Since you're the one who revealed it, and not Jamey, yes. I hope you enjoy yourself.

    By the way - what type of sunglasses do you recommend?

    Nope. I did not reveal it.

    If not Jamey, then Zombie's the one that made it painfully obvious.

    I haven't revealed anything.

    It seems to me the rule has been being over-applied for some time now if this is true.

    You might have an argument there, but the right time make that decision is when things are quiet, not right in the middle of an incident.


    I didn't like the rules very much before, but I accepted them, even when they worked against me. Changing them now that they're working against someone more popular, or against a dozen or so shit-disturbers, isn't right or fair.

    I went to Google, entered my first name, my age, and my town.....and looked at the first dozen pages of hits.

    Nothing there related to me - and I live in a town of 6,000-ish people

    I'm actually in Google.

    Some stupid Classmates thing that someone included my name in when they added my graduating class.

    They ought to be banned from life.

    !ban :yes:

    And yet - in the face of all these worrisome developments - here you are.

    Not 3 weeks ago I came under harassment at another board I had come to regularly post at. After discussing the issue for a day or two and seeing I couldn't prevail, I said "oh well" - and I haven't posted there since.

    It all depends on how seriously you feel about it.

    And, by the way, I left here once too, and only dueled back in order to follow Kyle's lead and stay out of the Red Room and just talk about "Lost" and "Heroes" and such - until I was outed.

    But the point is - at the time I left, I made a choice that what bothered me was important enough to leave. Others have too.

    What's your priority?

    I don't even think a first name should count as personal information. For the record my first name is Percy, feel free to troll me with it. :bergman:

    Neither you or Nick can ever bitch about your first names being used. The genie is out of the bottle, it's common knowledge now. Same with Ted, who would have loved this thread.

    It is completely out of the question to ask the entire board to never use an AV that is related to Ray. Quit whining or leave the board, we aren't going to change for you.

    And yet there you were, hard dick in hand, revealing the name of KIRK1ADM on Wordforge before someone turned around and tricked you into doing it back to yourself.

    Hypocrite.

    I know your first name, where you live, where you work and what you look like.

    Shall we have an auction? Opening bid is 456 pesos.

    You also know how big my company is, show up (if you can find the right office out of the many in just the Houston area) with my first name and even a pic and see if you can find me.

    Sooooo....

    According to the testimony of the person who banned you....as long as no one knew about the reference (other than those already in the know) then the offense, while perhaps deserving, wasn't actionable.

    :chris:

    Which....is....exactly where the banner troll stood until you started this thread.

    So - you purposely confirmed the name you claim to protect in order to arrange for the banning of the troll in question?

    Again, sir, I must invoke the word "Priorities" - what exactly are yours?

    His priority was to get a member banned. He sacrificed his first name to do it.
