I hadn't even seen your posts in this thread, so don't take my post personally if it doesn't apply to you. But since you ask, (2) is incorrect, (4) is uncertain, and the details of (5)--which is really the decisive category--are largely unknown.

I assume you're basing this claim on a pedantic interpretation of English grammar. ("We don't need you to follow him.")

Do I guess correctly that you also argue that Trump didn't call the Duchess of Sussex "nasty"?

Shodan picks up a warning for trolling (racist trolling, by my reading): https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...7#post21856017

Trolling maybe. I don't think it's racist to link to a school's website and post the education numbers found there.

I don't either, but I think it is racist to imply a connection between "black culture" and low test scores, as I think the post in question did.

This one is less ambiguous.

The accusation of "trolling" pisses me off. "Trolling" implies he doesn't really mean it. It's just fucking racist hate speech. "Libtards won't admit the obvious, black kids are just inherently violent and stupid, and schools need to use harsher restraints on them to keep the school safe for the good type of children". It's a fig-leaf to blame "culture".

That whole thread pissed me off so bad. This is literally a racist's favorite story. Angelic WASP teachers, tied to a rock and sacrificed to tribal Africans. The recreational outrage is overwhelming.

TPTB of the SDMB have decided that whether he means it or not is irrelevant as far as trolling is concerned.

Learn from this. You can be a valuable poster. I believe that. But if you persist in designing your arguments in such a way as to provoke reactions as well as debating you may continue to pick up warnings. You won't enjoy that.

Are we going to have bets or pick dates until he’s banned?

There’s no point for Shodan to be on these boards unless he’s trolling.

I think he’ll be quiet for a bit but there’s no way he can NOT troll.

Four months?

He really should have listened to this guy on how not to fall afoul of the moderators.

What - me gloat? Perish the thought. I'm merely noting the irony.

I'm not reading back through this whole thread to see if I posted in it before, but I had to shake my head at the first page where they act like Martin calling himself a "no limit n***a" is significant. I went to high school in the early '90s and I'd say a third of the guys in my (all white) class were calling themselves things like that.
