Unfortunate News - The 2008 April Fools Joke
« on: April 01, 2008, 04:43:26 am »
I know we don't normally talk about these things but we had to remove a long term member's access today. It started with his use of an offensive word, and when his post was edited, an argument ensued.  It was taken off the forum and into private messages and email. The final insult coming early this morning. Unfortunately, the final result was that we had to make a decision and that was to ban Patman.

Steve felt it was best to tell the forum this time since Pat was the highest poster and a long term member. Also to serve as an example of what not to do.

I wish it were.
The timing is certainly ironic, but this isn't an april fools joke.
The things Pat said were totally inexcusable. We talked long and hard about what to do, and this was the only option which seemed open to us. Sorry to spoil your fun guys.  :-\
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Yes they are, I typed in several banned member names and they show up in a search. They don't show up in the main member list, look at the list and under "P".

The timing is unfortunate and I'd like to apologize to anyone who had to see Pat's meltdown in IRC yesterday afternoon however, the policy on cursing is very clear.  On a side note, ignorance of the rules does not make one immune.
