So tell me, if we’re expunging people now for posting links to porn sites, why has this thread, and this user, been allowed to continue? Is anybody moderating over in MPSIMS these days?
And what about Satan’s thread about what his girlfriend wants to do to him? And, in the not-porn but still-being-a-jerk category, of course, there’s Nickrz’ own post at http://www.straightdope.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/003035.html , which certainly slurs if not slanders Dr. Sue, and yet it’s allowed to stand without editing or apology.
I am on record as not being a big C#3 fan (I believe that “butch” is one of the kinder things he said to me when I was a moderator), but fair is fair. If there are going to be rules, they should be enforced across the board (as it were).
C#3 has presented some thoughtful and insightful posts on this board, most recently sharing the circumstances of his wife’s cancer surgery (and bringing an awareness to this board of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month), and also sharing about his experience as a manager (in kellibelli’s MPSIMS thread on Busted Posting at Work, or whatever it’s called). Check out that cancer thread; it’s a side of C#3 I’ll bet you never thought existed. Unless, of course, it’s been purged. Of course, C#3 has also like to challenge a lot of peoples’ existing ideas, and to present some odd ideas of his own, and he’s certainly been very much in-your-face, I’m not denying that, having been on the receiving end of it. On the other hand, he certainly has presented a good foil, hasn’t he? Given lots of fodder for debate, provided lots of entertainment value, allowed lots of others to sharpen their wit and debating skills in sparring with him.
Seems unusual, even for C#3, to be posting a porn link – he’s never struck me as that type. Don’t suppose it could have been an accident? I understand that if you type whitehouse.com instead of whitehouse.gov you get porn. That’s the problem with banning him, of course, that we’ll never get to hear his side of the story, only the “spin” that is put on it by those who need to justify their actions.
(If you don’t hear from me for a few days, I’m out of town Wednesday through Sunday. It doesn’t mean I’m ignoring you, or that I agree – or disagree – with anything written after this post or in response to it.)
