But Flashlight doesn't post here anymore.
I know @shootER advised Dayton to save his diary thread a few weeks ago. I wonder if he did, or like all advice in his life he chose to ignore it and think he knew better.
If he did, then that's good for him I guess.
If not, then he could have lost the last 15 years of The Idiot's Guide on Being a Failure: Wet Dreams and Delusions.
And if he did lose that.
Didn't he have surgery for that?
That would be.....poetic, I must admit.
He tried to save it, but his printer ran out of ink
I can't say I'm upset or even that bothered that he's gone. He would shit up threads just to shit them up. He claimed he didn't insult first, but he would often just enter a thread to throw out some insult or comment to a poster. He did say he did it because that poster insulted him, his ideas, intelligence, or his family in the past. I refrained from insulting his family out of courtesy, but after his latest shot towards me, I didn't even get pissed off by it, but more annoyed by him. Annoyed like I would be annoyed by an insect buzzing by my head, or by having to hear some kid crying in a theater. And decided fuck him, no more courtesy. And I know that one of his tender spots was insults at his family. So I figured if I did that, it might trigger another meltdown. Guess he did it on his own.
Dayton gave plenty of ammo to use on him - no reason to involve family members, imho.
It takes two to tango, and it takes more than one person to derail a thread. If I wanted my threads moderated so strictly, I'd post in the Green Room.
Dayton has been doing the same old shit for years; why ban him now? And why is it the one admin acting unilaterally rather than a strong consensus?
We like our piñata. This is even dumber than he is.
That didn't stop him from doing it.
That crazy hoarder lady has been keeping her feces in Tupperware for years, why send in the decontamination team now?
He was told last time he was banned (the 90 day he got last year) the next would be a perma.
Sure it takes two to tango but you guys wouldn't stop stepping on the dance floor with him.
So at this point the only thing to do is kill his account because you all can't have your accounts blocked.
I hold myself to a higher standard than I expect from him.
There's something else that occurred to me. To be a fly on the wall when he realized he was perma banned on here.
Emails to staff to take him back:
This is a permaban?
I thought he would be allowed to come back after a certain time period.
Zor prime is a cthullu!
He was told after his last ban that the next time for be a permanent ban.
He was informed several times that it would be his last, his response was to scoff at the warnings and to give the emoticon. And chose not to believe it.

I suspect he never remotely expected to get fired from numerous jobs, but we all know how that turned out.
I'm starting a petition for Dayton's ban to expire after the heat death of the universe. It's only reasonable.
Mods??? Is it technically possible to set a ban to expire after 10^100 years @Order2Chaos?
yeah but none of those were his fault.
Maybe you should have pulled Dayton aside and advised him to, y'know, not be Dayton.
Maybe he would have listened to you and still be a member here then.
In his TK post, he seems to have shown a glimmer of recognition that his Red Room behaviour was a problem. Is that personal growth?
It makes you wonder what really goes through his head. He was told several times that he next ban would be a permanent one. And I know you directly told him at least 2 or 3 times. He's either really, really thick or he's so deluded that he thinks that his actions never will have repercussions and when they do he's genuinely flabbergasted.
Huh. There are people on this board who refuse to hear things you tell them and instead make up their own reality? I'd have never guessed that!
That's because you refuse to hear what people have been telling you.
Is oldfella the god emperor responsible for sending Dayton to hell or lanzman? Amaris volpone is a jadzia dax impersonator!
