    You don't control the FB site so stop pretending "allowing" Castle to post is some how generous of you. Sure, he should have moved on but what ever.

    Anyway, unlike you I actually care about WF not being an echo chamber and hope to see it endure the excesses and abuses of its current ownership hoping furure owners will return to more sensible and even handed policies. We all do what we can and this is definitely me doing something positive.

    There was absolutely nothing threatening, in any way, about what Ramen posted. Bailey is, once again, being dishonest and moving the goal posts. He can't even get the supposed cause of the ban straight in his own head.

    That is what he has always done. When he loses the argument he changes the subject and tries to pretend it never happened.

    Reading comprehension, go get some. If you don't think there was anything threatening about posting a lynching image as a callout to a black poster, then you're insane.

    If you're talking about since he was allowed back? No one said he did anything threatening since then.

    Unless I missed it? Can you link to who said he had threatened someone more recently?

    And no I'm not, because you seem to be under the false assumption that people's present actions cannot get judged under the context of their past ones.

    When you feel that has happened feel free to call me out on the original question. If it's a case I haven't responded to something I often miss poster, please @ me back in as a reminder.

    It's a beautiful standard. WF is not a platform for racist/violent/extremist content. That doesn't mean everything is going to be sanitized and PC. If you're not sure where the line is, best not try to dance up to it. Yes, long time contributors get more leeway than noobs or people who only show up intermittently to troll. Ramen knew exactly what he was doing, and repeatedly demonstrated he had no intention of contributing in any positive way. Good riddance.

    I again suggest working on that reading comprehension and actually reading the posts in the thread.

    That you personally don't agree with the ban put through by a site owner, backed up by the majority of people who have replied to this thread, and that was explained multiple times, does not mean it was unjustified.

    You keep trying to argue as if people are saying any individual recent post by Ramen would have resulted in anyone else being banned, when that hasn't been claimed.

    For each of the last five regular posters you guys have banned you made similar claims of one ofs and unique circumstances but the truth is you guys keep bending over backwards and doing the same nonsense over and over. You can't even come up with a straight answer about why you banned Ramen other than you don't like him because of something from years ago he already got punished for.

    That is why you keep ignoring what he actually posted this time and trying tp bring up years old stuff.

    They just repeat the same things over and over. They operate under the idea that unless the answer is what they consider valid, it's an excuse, or a cover up for the real motivation. No answer from the admins, other than an admission of guilt, will be enough. So posts like Dinner's, and Captain X's, will continue. Look at the gturner thing, still going after years, after hundreds and hundreds of posts, after everyone has weighed in multiple times, some still carry it like it happened yesterday. After seeing their behavior during that time, I have absolutely no inclination to give one shit about what they think any more, because how they treated me, @Shirogayne, and others was beyond the pale.

    These posters count on a lack of context in order to do what they do, and they understand that if we remember context, it weighs them down. Dinner has a lot of context connected with him, as did Ramen, as did gturner, as did others. So he gets angry because he knows the day is coming when he will, once again, say something incredibly bigoted, and it might be his last chance. Captain X? Eh, he just whines a lot because he thinks this is a court of law or a news media outlet where people have to pretend to be completely unbiased and objective. It's not, it hasn't ever been, and it never will be. It's a message board with admins and mods who try to be as fair as they can be, but are still human, and they pay attention to individuals, to context, to what is being said and what has been said in the past. So if a bunch of bigots get pissed when other bigots get tossed, they're not going to have much fun here. Good.

    Go back and look at the first two pages. Everyone, including you, conflated what got him temp banned previously with why he got permabanned now. :bailey: Not a single one of you offered up any quoted examples of what he did to earn this ban.

    I remember seeing teeth gnashing for every one of Polarslam's bans, and he was here solely to stir the shit pot.

    I really wish you'd have named names about the assholes who.put your personal info on the RR when we lost all the forums so we'd know the true ugly faces around here. Not that I can't guess, but if the board wants a chance to police their own, that's the kinda shit we shouldn't stand for.

    It's more that he slunk off with his tail between his legs for a year or so and there were so many other fires being put out at the time that no one bothered to flip the switch.

    I had to talk Gul down from just turning the lights off entirely.
    God, you know how many people have been run away from this place over shit like this? @bryce was called too sensitive, actormike got the Kikey Mikey stuff...hell, I honestly think it was Chup's pure stubbornness that sustained him posting here after his fianceé dumped him.

    That's what I don't get....in the old days, a shit mod acted shitty, we'd get rid of them and we'd move on. If Listkeeper came back today, I bet only Face would give him shit because it's Face. And the whole Elwood banning GoldenEye over Cheeky Monkey is so far under the bridge it's the first time most of you have even heard about it.

    Yet some of y'all can't let it go over some poster who'd throw any one of you under the bus for his own entertainment. :jayzus:

    I think you guys all take this stuff way too seriously...I've said that before and will doubtless say it again. How long does this stuff go back that you all can't let go of? 15 years??? It's like you're a dysfunctional family or something.

    I go away for a day, come back, and find a lot of lame butt hurt but hardly any arguments. Just more of the same. Still not a decent excuse for their current ban.

    The irony being Ramen did something years and years ago, which was 0.0000001% of his posting, yet you stupid fucks can't let it go because of butt hurt. He didn't break any rule this time, get over your massive ego, and and pretend you aren't a shit stain.

    This is what I've been saying for years. No one can complain as this isn't a democracy. Yes, it's completely biased and hypocritical, but it's allowed to be. Game over.
