    Banned for Personal Abuse.

    When it was merely a playful remark with him leaving.

    Accusing someone of smelling like "gone off mince". If i wanted to insult the guy (not that ive any reason to) im sure i could come up with better.
    Also this is my first Strike (Well according to Thaed anyway, i think its debatable).

    I ask for the Ban to be revoked.

    A banning does seem harsh. An infraction would have been enough imo.

    I fully support any action taken against the great Satan and his PI mods of doom.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,374 ✭✭✭Gone West


    Seems a bit harsh alright


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,983 ✭✭✭leninbenjamin


    it's a fair ban. you insulted him, no matter how mild. the post was not constructive in any way either. sorry, but it's deserved.

    edit; i didn't realise the thread he posted in wasn't a PI thread. considering this I believe the ban was indeed harsh.

    I do read the PI threads a lot and people have been banned for less.
    Once you attack anyone, you’re gone.

    I don’t think it’ll be revoked but fair play for asking anyway. It was fair imo

    I had to log out to see it ..

    Quite funny and over-reacted ban, if it was any attempt at an insult I'm sure he would have at least tried. Just seems like playful jest on a thread of monotonous replies.

    If anything a simple yellow infraction at most was needed. Or a simple response with a warning.

    If someone walked up to you on the street and said "you smell like gone off mince". Would you be offended? Or laugh it off as a joke?

    Hes leaving, its a cheerful event to be celebrated not taken seriously.

    I'd probably wonder WTF is wrong with the toolbox who just approached me.

    Ban him in real life using a gun and a few 'caps in teh ass.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,255 ✭✭✭✭The_Minister


    I thought it was a joke, but if Marksie didn't see the joke then it is personal abuse.

    Even Marksie loled at the jibe. Maybe he forgot to wash his tantric finger? :D FFS Thaed, power trip or what?

    I think this shows that he didnt take it as a personal insult. Hes probably laughing about it as i would if someone said it to me.

    I have stated in the past that she lacks a sense of humour.

    Hmnn Marksie was a pretty good PI mod. Very constructive and seemed like a real human being. That's something lost with his departure.

    I'd just assume you meant something bad and beat you up. So don't do this in real life in case it's me you meet.

    OT, bit harsh but there you go. Did you ever smell gone off mince?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,314 ✭✭✭Marcus.Aurelius


    Sounds like Thaedydiasl theadiddle whatever is back on form as a PI mod.

    Noobs beware!

    Thats not very nice of you. Shows how bad the country gets if you immediatly resort to violance and not try and at least respond with a witty comeback or just ignore a silly comment like that....

    Isn't she entitled to think it's a 'glitch' in the matrix so. What with all the hiccups boards has been having.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,216 ✭✭✭✭monkeyfudge


    Some people might like the smell of gone off mince.

    Nothing about the post suggested it was in jest so im not surprised the OP was banned. Not saying I agree with a ban as punishment but the OP broke the rules none the less
