No need for the g00g. Just look through 3-4 pages of the General Discussion forum and count the locked threads. >:oP

Because he doesn't break rules. Your posts have been reported more than his. Should we ban you too?

If he doesn't break rules, how come half the threads he is involved with are locked? Threads are only locked if they contravene rules? Or am I missing something?

PS. You can't ban me. I am Seibertron. Plus I've been super nice lately and not insulted anybody for ages.

Because they go off topic with the same stuff again and again.

Plus, there's a process to banning. He's in the middle of it.

So he is breaking the rules! Bollucks to the 'process'. Just liquidate him. Long live tyranny! Long live Seibertron!

I'll give you old age, I'm still in my twenties. It sounds almost as if you want me to go back to my old ways of targeting everybody as a potential wind up... ;;)

Let me put it this way,

Has he ever abused other members? No.
Has he ever sworn? No.
Has he posted inappropriate material? Yes, and that was acted on accordingly.
Has he ever threatened staff with legal action? No.

Do people have to respond to him? No.
Can people ignore him? Yes. It's called the Foe list. I've pointed this out on numerous occasions, in some instances I've DIRECTED certain members to use the Foe list, but they have ignored me, ignored direction from a staff member, that alone should warrant a warning for THEM.

So where does the real problem lie? The guy who obsesses over a couple of different things and ignores all facts put in front of him, or the people who could simply ignore him but continue to respond and in some cases, attack him?

Consider that everyone.

I'd argue that the problem is still him simply because it isn't just a case of "put him on your foe list and he won't bother you" because he still does effect those who have done so by getting threads locked which contain, him aside, decent conversations.

He may only be guilty of relatively low level misdemeanors but he's still having a very negative effect on the forum. You just have to look over the past few pages of General Discussion, each locked thread has been locked directly because of him. Sure some of them have been just shite but others have been decent or potentially decent threads ruined by him.

You're not taking him out round the back of the stables and shooting him. You're just stopping an annoying bloke from posting on an internet forum and ruining the enjoyment of others. If anything, it's your public duty as site administrator. :x

The foe list works, I put the fellow in question on it and it's seemed to work well. I'm also considering putting a few more on it simply because I'm not in my twenties and I have become a crotchety old man in training. Get the fudge off of my lawn!

That said, I'm kinda with BC on this one. Yeah, a lot of the locked threads were useless, but some had real potential. It also seems as if this forum in particular has slowed quite a bit, due to his constant derailment of threads. Why have a conversation if its just going to be derailed and locked due to one person?


Also, threatening legal action against the staff? Tell me that hasn't really happened. :lol:
Photobucket can die now.

I suppose an update is in order. Since my absence I've gotten a promotion from Warehouseman to Foreman. there's a ridiculous amount to learn, and it's far more stressful than I thought it'd be but I've been given some pretty positive feedback. Not to mention the pay raise, new access to overtime (especially in this current economy) I'm quite fortunate.
