Haggis - what the frig happened to your personality? Im a big fan of yours usually, but this has lost a you a lot of respect from people around here. I know that you have been burned in the past before by unbanning people

Dan, it's not just the "burning" that has caused the damage...it's the fact that, in some cases, I overturned other mods' decisions to unban these people, and they proceeded to crap all over me...therefore the other mods see me (probably quite rightly) as a "soft touch"...what's the point in them disciplining anyone, if they just come whining to Haggis and he lets them back in?? So I made a decision a couple of weeks ago NEVER to overturn the decision of another mod again, and I intend to stand by it...I've spoken to the Fox; he understands, so why can't you?? sad.gif sad.gif

I don't know if you were referring to me when you said you let other people back in. At any rate, I don't want what happened to me to be the reason yall dont let fox back in. When I was let back in, I was on my best behavior but was banned because apparently someone got in on my account and made other accounts and started posting drivel all over the board.

If that hadn't happened, I'd still be posting normally under the name of 'squeezebox' with no ill consequences. That would have been one case in which letting someone else back in was successful.

Also, think about it. Its fricken rabid_fox. He has been here longer or just as long as the people who banned him. That has to count for something, doesn't it?

I find it a little absurd to so quickly pull the plug on a forum member whom everyone likes and respects because of one night of frustration and mischief.

I also just saved 10% on my car insurance.

"This one time, at Banned Camp, squeezebox made a multiple username in order to speak up for someone who doesn't even like him."

I would like to pose two questions.

1) How many of yall like the fact that rabid_fox is gone?

2) How many of yall would rather rabid_fox return?

Now, I am not an empolyee of the U.S. Census Bureau, but I would assume that pretty much everyone would raise their hand after the second question. Just stop for a minute and think of why you go to GTU, and what GTU is.

GTU is not an experiment of higher morals and conduct. It is not a hypothetical governing system envisioned by Plato that is in risk of being destroyed by a few unruly members. It is a forum. Oftentimes, people get annoyed and post things on the forum that they shouldn't have. As annoying as that may be for a mod, it really is not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. All the mod has to do is delete the stuff and then go have a circle jerk in the mod forum while bragging about how quickly they responded.

As unfair is it sounds to say that rabid_fox should be unbanned because everyone likes him, rabid_fox should be unbanned because everyone likes him. We are not dealing with terrorists here. We don't have to show consistancy in the way we deal with posters. GTU can have double standards if it wants because it is not going to be held responsible by some world court or anything. It is a privately owned site that can do whatever the hell it wants.

Is unbanning rabid_fox hypocritical and holding double standards? yes.

Is unbanning rabid_fox a move that will be approved by pretty much every damn person on (and banned from ) GTU? yes.

You decide. (You probably already did)

Thats about all I have to say about that, and let me say that when capo2nd bans this username, I hope everyone thinks he has a bigger penis because of it.
