    What say you? With his latest thread ConfederateDunce seems to be doubling down on being a fuckstick.

    Boot him. There will be the usual round of butthurt, but I don't see him reforming any time soon.

    Just my two bits, but I propose we create a forum just for-

    I'm kidding.

    Mostly.

    Seriously, though, I can see the reasoning behind banning him. His racism and bigotry have become blatant, though the more I read his past history I see it's always been there, I just missed it. That's probably a failing on my part. Still, it sets a precedent; If he is banned, then excessively, unrepentant racists are at risk for being booted. I'm not saying don't, as that's not my decision to make by any stretch, just saying that it will complicate things.

    Double his last one? Then just keep doubling until he figures it out.

    True, but this board has lost nearly all it's POC posters besides me over this exact issue. Hell, Nick was going to step in for you after you left, but saw the post-gtardo shitstorm and chucked deuces because his literal name is attached to some posts here.

    It's every bit as demoralizing as the shit gtardo pulled and past admins have been willing to let it slide because they didn't see it or they didn't care. I might subscribe to Anc's idea were this a new TBBS reject we weren't sure about, but Dinner isn't going to change any more than Tasvir has or Sokar did or Jeriko would have if he kept posting after 2005. :shrug:

    Because seriously, in the last three years, Tererun is the only non-Neutered Zone Retard who's stuck around. The only ones we get now are those trolls who literally think we exist to validate their bigoted views. Hell, a TNZ mod even sent one of these asswipes to use *because of our rep.*

    And because it can't be said enough: even Troll motherfuckin' Kingdom has done away with this, for the most part.

    Obviously, I no longer pay the bill here, but ultimately it's the owners' name on the board. I'd make a full on policy about racist slurs, but I don't see what turning Dinner into Polarslam 2.0 will ultimately fix. Either get of him or don't, but do go half-cocked like we did with the Violet Room measure.

    Well stated, and I completely agree. I tried to see this from every angle I could, to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but it's clear the members who are full bore racist have no intention of dialing back or respecting others' wishes. My word has zero weight, I know, but I would agree with some kind of ban on racism. Yeah, TBBS has it, so does Starscape, and like you say even TK is pushing it away, because this is a different era, Google is everywhere, everything is indexed, nothing is left unknown for long, and the racism just really needs to stop anyway.

    Didn’t this already happen? @Malarky ’s post is from the beginning of the month.

    You still want it done?

    How long was the last one, two weeks or a month?

    A month. At this point, using the post in question would only draw blow back from the others, however.

    Agreed. I say leave it be for now since so much time has passed.

    Next ban is double the previous one.

    Can we have the board software automatically replace his posts in the Red Room with this?

    It'd be equally as accurate and generally less offensive.

    To my knowledge he is still dumb rep spamming up the place whenever he visits.

    Dinner has hit me up on PM whining that we need to take away El Chup's rep based on that precedent.

    I told him I didn't recall that but that he should start an HD thread seeing if others remembered differently.

    He refused saying it would only encourage El Chup.

    (please remove the names when this is released in 2 weeks).

    His rep was removed for a time because it was felt that he was abusing it, primarily because he would spam rep in rooms outside of the Red Room. It was restored not too long afterwards, if I recall correctly.

    ^^^ Yeah, that's how I remember it. I think we did the same thing to Baba a few years ago when he was being particularly nutty.

    Gul turned it off two years ago cuz at that point Flashy was doing nothing *but* negging people. Some people were receiving 150+ a day.

    If that's the case, then I don't see a reason to remove either poster's rep ability because both of them do contribute posts in addition to their neg reps.

    I'm prepared to be convinced otherwise, though.

    There should be a way to check how much either is dealing out, but yeah. I doubt it's anywhere near Flashy's amount.

    I knew there was a precedent I was following when I told Dayton to knock off his rep nonsense during his self-imposed 'exile' from the Red Room (and sure, it might have not been the best approach).
