    Yes, he's really banned.

    Banned for metric? I don't want to look like I'm bobbys' lawyer, but I can't see him ever using centimeters or kilos.

    well surely the fussy pants that pressed the button
    Doubt there was a button presser.. there was a thread posted calling him out for rudeness in his bumping of dead threads/stalking.. Admin likely saw that on his own.

    The "fussy pants" that punched the button on him was me. I generally stay out of political stuff here as it's simply not why I come here, but one individual dragging up a whole series of old threads and flooding the bilge with them just to be disruptive is juvenile and should not be tolerated. It has nothing to do with whether or not I agree with his views. If someone wants to come here and respectfully participate in the conversations, that's fine. Disrupting an entire section of the forum without participating is not. I'll be more than happy to do the same thing to anyone else who tries the same crap.

    kudos for claiming it.

    i missed the ordeal, so i have a hard time imagining why bringing up old threads was so bad. but it doesn't really matter i suppose. i would guess he'll be back, that doesn't sound like a permanent type banning offense.

    In case anyone forgets - I WILL MASH THE BUTTON ANYTIME I SEE FIT, AND THERE IS NOT A DAMN THING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT. If scot deems it bannable, well then it was, and I was correct in my button mashing.


    You have been warned.

    In fact, I already have. Y'all simply haven't recognized it, as he's maintaining a lower profile for now. And he's much more polite, speaks in reassuringly measured tones, and is at least capable of carrying on a conversation (about certain topics). But he's, at bottom, every bit the self-referential nihilistic anarchistic serial bomb-thrower. Bubbles 2.0, so to speak. Hint... he identifies as 'Canadian'. Further deponent sayeth not...

    What a childish, asinine thing to do. Do you not have enough courage to speak in your own voice? Or do you just wish to be a s**t disturber and not get any of the splash on you? The only other reason I can think of is that you have poisoned your own brand so badly that you can't expect a reasonable response from other Forumites - is that why you are masquerading as a Canadian, so you might get some respect?
