Where did you get the authority to give black marks, Ben?

As I recall you still have the VINS FISZ MARK

My black marks are not official, but yeah, change two to three there. Yikes!!!

Also note that TM still didn't even have the authority to give me the VINS FISZ MARK either, but whatever. I'm pretty sure whoever made account 6050 also made 6052. And apparently those were valid E-mail addresses. :eek:

Your black marks mean nothing to me, Salmon (it only would from certain people), and I was right to question his authority. So, :P

Five stars for Rubberskull. YEAH MAN! Fight the power!

And you know, I never found TM offensive, just funny. Was he trying to be mean all this time?

He was just being TM. I don't find him offensive either, and he's always been nice to me. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen him insult a female.

You know what TM has to be up to on his forced hiatus. His leafy green armies marshal as we speak. Or type.

You know you liked them.

Hey, has one of these topics about another poster popped up when the member was allowed to post? Because it seems sort of unfair that TM can't defend himself from your accusations.

I wonder why. His style (of late) has mainly been directed at putting things up your rectum, and some are quite homophobic.

Since I could not find obscenities or spamming in TM's posts after he was canned, I suspect his ban might be a conspiracy ... :eek: to keep TM away from the elections.

The CoC says that abbreviated obsceneties aren't allowed, and TM used those rather often, despite bieng warned. However, I'm all for conspiracies to keep TM out of the election. Fortunately, Drakey would probably not appoint someone who's been canned and banned as moderator, no matter who they are.

I assume you are aware that a potential for leadership includes the willingness to take a risk?

I have a feeling that Rubberskull will soon meet the same end as EraserHead and Drakel.

Either Rubberskull = EraserHead = Drakel, or

Rubberskull = TM.

Being a mod isn't quite leadership, no matter what some campaigners will tell you, and taking a risk is a category that includes more than petty defiance.

—Alorael, who is certain that TM's true leadership qualities will be seen when the revolution comes. And then let all beware. Cabbages have no mercy.

Salmon, so you know:
I = black mark
| != black mark

Also, Drakey has concluded that Eraserhead != Drakel.

Cabbages have fiber.

I was feeling a bit guilty that such a feeble one-liner retort was naught but spam, when I realized sadly that the high fiber content of cabbage is some of the most valuable information that has ever been posted on those boards. :confused:

They're also high in calcium.

It's pretty obvious that Eraserhead and Rubberskull are the same person. Both have email addresses in New Zealand, their names bear certain similarities, and their posting styles are also similar. (There's also the fact that RS has implied that he's EH, but an uncorroborated confession is dodgy evidence.) Nothing to do now but wait for an admin to show up and do what admins do best.

I hope this was a joke.

EDIT (removed sarcasm): I think that freely insulting anybody you dislike and intentionally breaking rules when told to stop can hardly be considered admirable leadership qualities.

Eh. At first I found TM to be offensive, but negativity just seems to be his idiom. He uses insults and vulgarity so much in his posts that they all just seems to lose their "insulty-ness" rather fast. Maybe it really is his intention to insult people with the intent of evoking anger, but I just find it all to be very very cynical humor.

Nevertheless, the ban is fair enough. Vulgarity is really inappropriate here, and even though TM righteously tries to avoid "homogenization" by saying everything other posters won't say, I don't think anyone should be exempt from the CoC despite their convictions.

Of course, expressing oneself with cynical, insulting humor is a rather peculiar way to show conviction to uniqueness. Come to think of it, I think "Marx' Martyr" is meant to be ironic. He might be super liberal, but he's hardly a collectivist.

He definitely stands out in these forums, at least.

CLARIFICATION: In case the feelings behind this post are ambiguous, I respect TM. He's a cool guy. He's got a lose tongue, but he's still cool.
