Posting NSFW on #euk=At least a temp ban

I hope you mean a temp ban from #euk IRC???  Because banning on forums due to IRC stuff would be silly.

Quote from: "Butjam"
Posting porn and the like on here threatens our advertising and thus the continuation of the forums.

Lol.  I don't think kumnaa is concerned about the advertising revenue.  It's pennies and doesn't even come close to covering costs.  It's more to do with the legal implications.  Yes the ads would be stopped but that's a much smaller issue.
Yeah, bans last hardly any time on #euk, don't think there's many permabanned on IRC that aren't just forig trolls

I used 'advertising' as a nice catch all phrase for all that stuff. I can't think of anybody else who was unbanned who so swiftly broke the ToS. Certain members may have run up infraction points but never anything serious (There was that one time, but it was sorted out to be a genuine mistake)

If someone is being harmful to the environment and atmosphere here, the community usually deals out its own punishment through shunning which is p much as bad as a permaban as it extends beyond the forums. You harm the forums themselves though and you'll be booted off
Would be better if you just permabanned, since Goku/those people probably like the small bit of attention they get during the shunning. Plus his poison does harm the forum itself and its community, so boot him off.

He had spent his whole life despised and hated for the mere triviality of wearing dresses and make-up despite possessing a (rather magnificent) penis, and this persecution had fostered within him both a desperate yearning to be loved and appreciated, and an iconoclastic desire to subvert and destroy the odious traditions on which society was built.

I agree with this.

More harm would be done by a perma ban as it would simply reinforce the "elitist" perception of the forum in game.

He was banned before for multiple accounts. Just ban him before he breaks the rules again and further spreads his cancer around the community.

Well he propagates that myth banned or not, at least the forum would be somewhere safe from his poison for the free-thinking players.

You're getting to sound exactly like a Liberal Studies lecturer I had many many years ago whose whole attitude could be summed by "Everyone is entitled to their opinion provided it coincides with mine."

The forums should be inclusive not exclusive.

He broke the rules, banned, whined endlessly and got unbanned. He has no entitlement to be here. In fact, a prerequisite to his unbanning was he actually contributed positively... hah.

The forums should be kept pleasant, if that means disallowing cretins access then so be it. Free speech isn't so precious that I want nazis and homophobes and misogynists all over the place.

Well Frerk told me that he wanted him rebanned when he broke the copyright rule and you and Butjam overuled.

I'd never have overruled Goku being rebanned. I have more reason than both butjam and Frerk to hate him. Not that I recall the copyright thing unless it was his posting of warez.

I was against permabanning after the copyright incident because it was a genuine mistake. He was punished with a ban for it and I assured him that it wasn't going to be permanent. If Goku was Al Capone, maybe I'd go for low hanging fruit to ban him off but he's not and he isn't. If he wants to act like a dick in how he posts, feel free to act like one back, the forum rules have been relaxed. Try and keep it remotely civil though, please

That's funny. Goku sounds exactly like that lecturer you're talking about. How ironic.
