    Since President Trump is in the spirit of granting pardons to less than popular individuals. I figure WF might be willing to get into the same spirit by reviewing some of it's permanent bans.

    Now 95% of the banlist appears to be Castle duals, showing that he clearly misses the community a great deal. But here's a list of individual permanent bans from what I can figure.

    Skrain
    John Castle
    Zodiac
    skinofevil
    gturner
    Doctor Manhattan

    So which of these former members are deserving of clemency?

    All of them, really. Could you imagine the chaos that would ensue here if all of them came back?

    AFAIK the only permanent bans are Castle and gturner. Skrain is here posting. Zodiac was banned but would have been covered in the general amnesty, haven't seen him around lately. The only person who ever posted here as skinofevil is John Castle. Doctor Manhattan/POTN shouldn't be banned, but maybe he asked for his account to be locked? Not sure there.

    I'd happily see Castle back if he got help.

    And I'd happily see gturner back if he got a life.

    Pardon all of them. GT never should have been banned to begin with.

    While we are at it why was Coyote perma banned instead of just given a temp ban? Yes, no one liked his behavior but it is not like that was anything we haven't seen a million times before in the red room. Arguably it was a dick move but in the right subforum as trolling is with in the rules of the red room.

    My guess would be Rule 8. And didn't he just come off of another ban?

    I notice Coyote is no longer on the perma ban list, which is good, the mods made no mention of their change though which is not so good. A bit of transparency would be nice.

    So, exactly like I said, without any public discussion or input.

    So masterbating on another forum? That is rather sad and takes away from discussions which should have happened here instead of on lame private forums.
