Wiccan Seeker and banning
    #4216257 - 05/24/05 10:55 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Does she have a right to ban me because of my views in PA&L? Mind you there were NO personnal attacks whatsoever. He isn't even a moderator there? He did respond to my post, interjecting his reasoning without even letting me respond, nor was I warned. What's up with this?

Your post seemed to me to be completely in accordance with the forum rules. It was just a pro-American post, and the ban was ridiculous. I don't agree with your opinions, but you should have the right to state them without getting banned by the liberals.

My real reason for responding though, is to ask, Wiccan_seeker is really a she? I never knew...

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Honestly I don't know. Hence the androgenous referencing.

Wiccan's all man.

The ban wasn't too cool, but I don't think it was even wiccan who banned you. I'm pretty sure it was a PA&L mod... anyway, don't worry, in the future, as long as you don't attack your fellow shroomerite, you should earn a warning.

Talk of killing people in PA&L is a bit intense though... not worth a ban... but it can be hard to debate with someone waving their sword...

But like I said, you should be fine in the future.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Let's set the record straight.

1. I'm a man. Are you?

2. I've even gotten fanmail for it but as I explained to them I did not ban you at all. What I however did do was notify the moderators of Pol & Act of your post.

But the terrorists. Those low-life, inhuman, foul, creatures from the abyss want to kill you for no other reason that being an american. For that I condemn them to death. I condemn their religion to death for inspiring them. I condemn their children to death because they will only replace their fathers after they kill innocent people. I condemn their mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles to death for saying nothing, and chanting anti-american death songs at every opportunity. I condemn anyone who is muslim, dark-skinned, and speaks with an arabic tongue to DEATH. Not because they are who they are, but because its either them or us, and as Jesus can attest, it will be the pure of heart and those who strive for family, nation, and God who will triumph. In short, AMERICA WILL RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!




Your post wasn't pro-american. Your post contained fiery racism.

I condemn anyone who is muslim, dark-skinned, and speaks with an arabic tongue to DEATH.

This is contrary to the spirit of the Shroomery. I can understand that you are scared to death about islamic fundamentalism but gripped by fear you are roaring death threats at an entire ethnic group and religion. Death threats, not intelligent criticism.

Your racist comment is a slap in the face for all our Islamic, middle-eastern Shroomery members and fuel on the fire of fundamentalism.

I decided this was banning material and submitted it to the Pol & Act moderators using the "notify a moderator" button thats at the bottom left of each post, since after all its their forum so its their call.
And you got banned for the contents of your post, for you are judged on nothing else but what you decide to press "Ok, submit" on.

Think before you post. Those bans will only get longer if you keep up your fear-inspired racism.

I'm all for banning looner. But do we really have islamic middle easterners here?

A simple post edit would have sufficed IMO, saving much drama.
