Behold, Spaced Ranger’s Anduril speaks:

Jay (and responsible minions), I haven’t come here as a new poster. Rather, I plead for the avatar of Spaced Ranger, whom you wrongly and unceremoniously banned without notice and courtesy of defense:

This defense is true:

  • Spaced Ranger broke no forum rules as you wrote them
  • You violated your own rules by the immediate and permanent ban of Spaced Ranger in the forum 's Off Topic section thread Politics
  • You singled out Spaced Ranger for immediate and permanent ban while letting off all others involved in strong cross-talk with mere warnings
  • One instigator, the most aggregious (if in another forum section), even defended himself (applying to Spaced Ranger as well) by your own stated “moderator hands-off” in the Off Topic section
  • Even worse, you immediately replaced your old rules, which stood against your own unjust actions, with new rules as a retro-active justification of your Spaced Ranger ban
  • Finally, the locking of the entire Politics thread, weeks after the banning of Spaced Ranger, is tacit admission that your arbitrarily ignoring your own rules was the real problem after all

To sum, if you have any respect for your forum, it’s posters, and it’s reputation among the community of open forums, you’ll admit your hasty and ill-advised action against a single poster, which smacks of something more indictive than professional, by restoring Spaced Ranger to his active state.

Heed the words of Spaced Ranger’s Anduril.

It was a temp ban, but you’ve probably shot yourself in the foot now with this little stunt. And you think creating six more socks in reserve is going to help your argument?

Pretty harsh, there, SilverWook. It’s shocking to see you deliberately mis-characterizing Spaced Ranger trying to communicate to the responsible party after having been denied any fair play or communication.

Why don’t you LIST those “names” of your so-called “sock puppets”, to demonstrate SR’s communications … 😉

Addendum:
BTW, Spaced Ranger is interested in the ban rescinded and his good reputation restored. You know … someone else’s bad.

Is there something preventing you from communicating with Jay via email? Your beef is with him, not the staff.

Your temporary ban has been extended for creating multiple socks. Your sock accounts, including this one, have been banned.

While it’s true that we had no specific rules governing Off Topic, there was a line that people didn’t cross. In all your time here, did you ever see potentially offensive pictures of any kind (pornography, graphic violence, etc.) posted or tolerated by the mods in any forum? What made you think pictures of aborted fetuses intentionally designed to rile people up was going to get you? A pat on the back?

Your intent wasn’t simply to be provocative or somewhat trollish, but to inflame, and you took it too far — and you know it.

The things you pwn end up pwning you.
