We've been getting multiple reports about him for a while now, but despite giving him verbal warnings numerous times, he's just ignored us completely.

Free speech is great, but not when you use it to spam and copy/paste stuff everywhere. We have rules against this for a reason.

That's bull. Maybe he did copy/pasted certain things but, only to prove his points. He didn't get banned for spamming. The obvious reason is the subject of his topics that the majority of you do not want to have any discussion on. You guys banned him because you don't agree with his points, plain and simple. It had become obvious here that a certain topic is taboo and none of you want it to even he mentioned. Apparently I was wrong. This is not an atheist forum. As the saying goes, "this is bullocks". This is just an anti-christian anti-islam forum and nothing else.

If after repeated warnings a member can't follow your rules, you do what you think is best.

My "vote" though would be a ban for a period of time or a warning, especially (as in this case) for a long term member.

He was warned, and if you were aware of his long history of behavior on other sites (going back to at least 1996), you might have a different perspective on the value of a temporary ban (which is a tool we have at our disposal).

Holy wild conjecture, batman. You are so fucking out of line as to be ridiculous. We had an open misogynist here with crazy opinions. He stayed and only disappeared of his own accord. We've had anti-atheists, anti-theists, seriously wacky Christians and much more not get banned. You are out of your fucking mind if you think it was an anti-Christian thing. A Nony Mouse was listed as an atheist, retard.

As I usually explain it: most of the time you guys don't get to see what goes on behind the scenes, because we edit / delete posts that break the rules.

Some of his links were to source stuff, agreed, but generally speaking sourcing your points from stuff you've written isn't really how you are supposed to do things. Regardless, these weren't the copy/pastes we were most concerned with. We were more concerned with his copy/pastes from articles which he had not written. We don't hold the copyright on these articles, and we do not allow people to simply copy/paste news articles when a link is perfectly fine.

Yes he did. Spamming via copy/pasting is still spamming, at least here it is.

This is the real bull. I couldn't give a fuck whether he believes in God, doesn't believe in the Holocaust, thinks Israel shouldn't exist, etc. I'll gladly debate him on those points, but what we won't do is compromise our integrity and ban someone because we don't like their views.

Which topic would that be? We'll certainly close threads if people can't stop flaming each other, but we don't censor threads based on their subject. We're certainly not anti-christian or anti-Islam (one of the admins is a Muslim for fuck's sake).

Cool it. When we say that it is for his spamming, it is so. My vote for banning him came from counting up to 7 new threads by him in less than half an hour, for bumping those threads that die out of themselves and for not caring one iota about all the warnings received. I have actually never read any of his political posts. Do you still dare to call me a liar? Did I wanted to see him banned because of his views? No.

EDIT: And if we are anti-christian and anti-islam site, wouldn't we warmly welcome an anti-jew?
When I was young, there was a god with infinite power protecting me. Is there anyone else who felt that way? And was sure about it? but the first time I fell in love, I was thrown down - or maybe I broke free - and I bade farewell to God and became human. Now I don't have God's protection, and I walk on the ground without wings, but I don't regret this hardship. I want to live as a person. -Arina Tanemura

Look, the staff was tired of dealing with all of the reports due to copy/pasting, using copyrighted material, and flaming. Ultimately, what did him in was the fact that he ignored anything the staff had to say about his posting style.

Prove it, prove that we banned him for his views and not for his repeated break of the rules. You are butthurt we banned one of your favorite members? That's too bad, but you do not get to accuse others without evidence. Plus we have many members with controversial views and they aren't banned.

So, put up or shut the fuck up, you made an accusation, I demand you to prove it!

Right, more offhanded accusations. We have many theists around, christians and muslims included and they managed to not break the rules, where is your argument now?

So, will you make your case or are you going to keep whining because your posterboy was banned?

You're certainly welcome to your opinion. The content of his posts wasn't even part of the discussion. Personally, if someone wants to make an ass of himself, I'm happy to let him. Hell, I'll hand him a megaphone.
