    We have been saying all along that ignore is a great feature people should use. Sadly, the mods just want to ban which shows how far away from acceptable behavior they have gotten.

    And yet here you are, in at least the fourth thread based on you reading and believing @gturner's lies, and you don't want to be ignored. So we still have to deal with his lies. QED: Ignoring him doesn't solve the problem for the rest of us.

    Oh, is someone daring to disagree with you and your B.S.? You have gone from claiming GT's posts have no value, to admitting it does because other people respond and engage him, to now claiming he has to be banned because other people actually do find value in his posts.

    Spin some more for us and make up a few more transparently obvious false excuses. We all know you guys banned him because he was a conservative, you've made that much obvious, so why not just admit it so we can move on to pointing out what crappy intolerant people you all are? I might actually respect you more for admitting you are a snowflake who needs a safe space.

    None of those were ever my position, nor are they now.

    I didn't ban him, I didn't argue for him to be banned, he isn't a conservative, and other conservatives aren't banned.

    You're arguing for him to be banned now. :bailey:

    As for him being banned for his political views, I'd say Nono and Tererun still being here are evidence of that. :diacanu:

    This is all truly pointless. There are only three people responsible for gturner remaining banned. You're not going to get anywhere trying to convince them the original ban was unfair, so you're going to have to convince them that his return would be a net positive for the community. Better yet, he should contact them himself and plead his own case, assuming he even wants to come back.

    Except the original ban was unfair, and there's no logical reason to keep him banned on that basis alone. :shrug:

    This.

    Which is why I am not sure that this thread serves a purpose in the Help Desk. The original questions have been answered. Now there is just people disagreeing with the answer. Historically that's been Red Room material.

    :rolleyes: And yet your entire ongoing argument has been to the effect of you being in favor of his ban and its continuation. This strikes me as disingenuous on your part and more along the lines of a CYA disclaimer to use now that you've been called on what you've said. Essentially this is like garamet turning around and claiming she didn't actually say something because technically she only heavily implied it. Except you haven't just heavily implied it, you've been actively arguing in favor of the ban.

    No it hasn't. :bailey: Neither you nor anyone else as adequately answered this question with anything more than easily disproven assertions.

    Except that discussion of moderator actions are not handled in the Red Room, they are handled in the Help Desk, which is undoubtedly why you want to shut down any discussion of it here and move to to the Red Room, where it can be more easily ignored, or at least devolve into name-calling rather than being in a venue where it must be taken more seriously.

    I don't see it as pointless. Yes, I agree the "ban the opposition" Stasi probably can't be reasoned with but we can still expose their hypocrisy and lies so, in the future, when they again ban someone who never broke a rule simply because they do not like them, well, at least their terrible track record will be well known.

    Maybe we can even make them gun shy so the next time they are feeling their arrogant unlimited power they check themselves and think twice.

    Oh, look, the Nazi is acting like a Nazi again and trying to shut down discussion because he can't justify his own deplorable actions.

    Literally, every excuse brought up so far has been debunked and, having read the shelter release along with your posts in it, it is an abortion that someone as fact free and obviously biased even got a vote on this matter, Mr. "I am just a regular poster like you".

    That is obviously his reason. Discussion of moderator actions most certainly belongs here and ANC is flailing around trying to get the thread locked because even he knows his excuses are trash so he wants it moved to the red room so he can do his usual derail and make snide comments routine.

    Just another reason why he shouldn't get a vote on this matter at all. He is definitely one of the guilty abusers.

    Why did you get a vote in the shelter release where you almost single handedly sank @Christopher's proposal to right this injustice? You are obviously biased and one of the guilty parties who caused this so why shouldn't we have a clean vote where you hypocrites recuise yourselves as you have obvious conflicts of interest?

    This is a small community. There's very little room for secrecy. Everybody pretty much knows what everybody else is up to. All these wild conspiracies of cartoonishly evil mods plotting behind the scenes are just foolish, and yes, pointless.

    If your goal is to get gturner unbanned, I just told you the most likely way that could be accomplished. Anything else is just pissing into the wind.

    You mean among the four completely debunked and unbelievable excuses that have been offered so far? How about an honest answer that actually holds water?

    Here is another decent question. Do you agree with John that GT's posts had no value or do you agree with Paladin that they did. As an aside Paladin pretty much took John to the wood shed and paddled his behind.

    OK if this is the terrible excuse you are sticking with for your completely unjustified ban can you please provide specific quotes with links to the original material of exactly where GT was supposedly "an asshole"?

    Then we can move on to how that rule was always made up subjective garbage designed by you and your ilk to weakly justify banning anyone you wanted.

    As Packard has so aptly demonstrated he intentionally derailed discussion with his bullshit.

    And yes it is subjective. You gotta team of monkeys working around the clock to come up with that? (It says it in the rule itself.)

    Next unanswered question?

    How about actually bothering to anwser the three I put before you in the last 20 minutes which you have so far ignored?

    This isn't rocket science so you should be able to see them. If you stopped ignoring them.
