Since some people like to whine and break the rules themselves instead of staying neutral and report, I'm going to break it down, I went through a few threads and it's utterly a waste of time, both "sides" are breaking the rules back and forth, specifically with flaming. I could just ban everyone for 3 days, but it'll take more time than it's worth so I'll just leave it at this:
1. Stop flaming
2. pathogen is entitled to his own opinion, just like you all are.
3. If someone breaks the rules, don't break the rules yourself, use the report button.
4. If someone is trolling, ignore it, but if you can get together enough evidence to support the trolling we can deal with it. (since light trolling is allowed)
Ultimately, what I'm saying is, I can't punish someone if they aren't breaking the rules. If both sides are breaking the rules, no one is innocent and it becomes a headache.
While I agree with Arun's post somewhat, I think it's fair to say that pathofag was being a total antagonist.
It all started when a few people gave him constructive criticism, then he went on a flame bait rampage.
The people that have been in this section long enough can take opinions just fine.
But when you're going to intentionally flame and troll people, I think some backlash is to be expected.
It was one person against a majority. Numbers should usually win in that situation whether we were flaming back or not.
I'm glad the kid is banned. If he comes back with anymore bullshit let's just continue to report.
Always coming evermore through the darkness i adore
Never slowing never waning
Always chasing always preying
Upon those who doth have power
those whose minds are strong
Never again shall it rest,
for it has tasted fear
