Thread: Why Close The Thread About Billy Dean?

  1. #1
    Just seems to be another example of censorship. This is a forum for fun, but the people we effect are real.

    Jetje,

    Permanent banning is for people who are intent on spamming the board (to promote another site) or whose primary objective is to anger members, promote kiddie porn, or attack the board itself (hacking).

    Billy on the otherhand, did not come here to do any of those things and his trouble boils down to a non-constructive manner of conveying his thoughts when irritated. I have personally been very close to blowing my top from time to time and often the PM's Mods receive are far different from the original text ( ).

    The result has been a rather spectacular relationship with most mods, who when treated politely, often start going out of their way to be helpful.

    I have just learned to adapt to my own temperment and cool down a bit. I try to remember that overall I am here to have fun, but when people censor me or interfer with my fun by intrusive moderating, I object to the principle (not the actaul loss of a post) and get quite angry.

    I think with Billy, he got off to a rough start with some Mods and it spiraled over time, to a point where he was hounded and harassed.

    Before I derail myself in a coffee induced ramble, I want to state clearly that Billy is different from other BANNED members in that he does not visit to bring harm to the board, he wants to have fun just like the rest of us.

    As it has turned out, his temper and the tempers of the mods reached a point where a time out was needed.

    I think it is time to see who the "MEN" are around here? Who can erase past grudges and move forward.

    I don't think Billy wants to return here a muted version of his former self nor to kiss up to any Mod, and he shouldn't, but perhaps he will change the manner of his posting to help keep this board fun and exciting.


    Since I consider myself a part of this board and I am for having him back, as are the others on this thread, perhaps a poll is needed to see who really doesn't want him back. If the board members don't want him here, then the ban is a good idea. If the do want him here, how can you be looking out for the best interest of the board by banning him?
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    I never wanted him banned. I've had little spats with him myself but I have thick skin and am time enough for ole Billy. I just tell him to STFU!!!

    Unfortunately, not everyone is like me and ole Billy brought it on himself.
    When asked to tone down, he heated up like saying fuck you.

    Mods: Billy chill out man

    Billy: Yeah I killed them and I hope they burn in hell!!!
    Silly bitch, your weapons cannot harm me. Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, Bitchhhh!

    Yeah it seems to be quite an administration failure by banning billy dean. They know they made a bad decision, so they try to cover up how pissed the community is.

    Hobbes, I don't think there should ever be polls concerning individual members, though I would like to see Billy-Dean reinstated. Not that I agreed with all Rikk's views, on the contrary.

    It's spring here in Europe and autumn in Australia, so come on 7thE, please consider removing that ban...

    It doesn't really matter whether you liked Billy or he annoyed the crap out of you, you have to admit he made things lively in here.

    Why is is that the powers that be on this forum only seem to remember the anger? Do they forget that he also made some intelligent, thought provoking posts, and helped more than a few members in other worlds.

    As far as closing threads on this subject, I agree with hobbes, it's just censorship.

    I've seen him in action away from this forum and he is funny, helpful and friendly.

    I am proud to have him as a friend and think this board is sadly lacking without him.

    Well I think he was a dick and when he was told to stop being a dick for an instant he was compelled to redicktify his dickessness.

    I'm not for him being banned but....I'm not for him being reinstated either.

    He shot himself in the foot....on purpose!!!
