Brought back??? He is just temporarily banned; it wasn't like he was thrown away, kicked out or anything. To Dark_Crusader: TM (Terror's Martyr) is member #4 of SW. He was a mod way back when SW started, and you can probably find more about him, and why he was banned if you do a search on him. I just hope this topic doesn't become another "why did they banned TM?" thread.

Just curious... why would you post about something you don't know about?

Anyway, TM is welcome back whenever A) his sentence is up, and B) he behaves.

He'll be back on October 16, so be patient. :P

That's 12 days, if my calculations are correct.

He'll be back very soon anyway. And the way this poll is going everyone is eagar for his return.

Edit: 2 posts in the time it took to write that.

One word: SPAM. Two words: Increase Posts.
and there is that slight chance that he might just be interested in knowing who TM is???

He wasn't banned on a whim, people. He's had it coming for years. Literally. I'd be waiting expectantly for the 16th if I thought he'd learned a thing from this, but I really don't. Anyway, who's to say he's coming back?

I'll probably get lambasted from both sides for my interjection here, maybe from TM too, if he decides to grace us with his presence again after the ban.

I could be wrong, but from the 3+ years of lurking here, I've found that TM's personality is quite similar to my own. He is antagonistic, cynical, has a problem with authority, comes off as egotistical, and believes that he is right. The major difference between us is that I tend to practice self-restraint. Well, usually.

Frankly, I don't believe that banning TM for anything other than gross violations of the CoC is the way to go. Really, you should take anything he says with a grain of salt.

I voted no because now is Oct 4th and his restraining order hasn't expired.

When it is time, I would welcome him back if he would have us. Otherwise, I'll visit his other haunts.

He tends to make topics more interesting, either through pissing people off or just being pissed off and kind of bitter. Due to the fact that I spend much more time lurking than posting, I'd say he should most definitely return.

Between inanities like this thread and posts that ask who TM is, it is certainly high time for his return. I await 10/16.

A valid point. I wonder how he'll respond to the spam floods we've been having lately...

TM has almost gained Celebrity status through this banning, everyone either wants him back or wants to know who he is.

TM has gained celebrity status several times over years ago, and you of all people have been here long enough to know this. The reason people are asking who he is is because there's an entire generation of newbies who have never seen him.

I'd like him back just for the comicness sometimes. But I do think he is rather crazy.

I don't think it's worth it. At least if he behaves like before.

He managed to get me off the forums through being unpleasant and making me feel very uncomfortable; I was very sensitive back then since I was bullied badly by my old friends, if you remember.

Crickey, Eaglet! With friends like that, who needs enemies? I'll tell you what though. One of the nicer things about growing up is getting beyond the pettiness and meanness of confused, insecure, ignorant kids taking out their neuroses on each other, while they try to figure out who they are.

Of course, the flipside is that then you get to deal with the pettiness and meanness of confused, insecure, ignorant adults taking out their neuroses on each other, while they try to figure out who they are.

Oh, never mind.

I think TM is funny. So yes, I think he should come back when his ban is lifted. Whether or not he will come back is a different story.

This thread is beginning to become a pain to eyes and mind. Is there something worthwhile that can be added to the discussion, or are we going to repeat the last 3-4 related topics?

You should always read the thread before voting as sometimes a single post can be enough to make you vote another way.

Beginning? I think it got there in the first post. Those that don't know who TM is have an excuse, for everyone else: Honestly! What is with you people? Why do you all make such a big deal out of this?

First of all, I'm not so certain that being funny has ever been one of TM's greatest motivations for being as he is and I find it unlikely he will be returning (if he does) purely for the sake of your entertainment.

Second of all, as the last few months have shown, while he adds his own certain flavor to the boards, his presence or lack thereof hardly makes or breaks the community. Personally, I have nothing against him and wouldn't mind if he came back, as long as he no longer viciously attacks members and openly flaunts the CoC. The very reasons, in fact, that he was banned. I agree that TM certainly adds to the boards most of the time, but that is not an excuse for behavior that is inflammatory and offensive.

Somehow many of you seem to fail to understand that TM wasn't banned for being TM. He was banned for violating the CoC when he had repeatedly been warned and had just barely returned from a short ban.

If, when he comes back, he repeats the offences that got him banned, I think he should banned again, possibly permanently as he would have shown he is completely unwilling to make a small effort to avoid openly attacking and insulting people.

If, on the other hand, he does not repeat his offences, I think that the boards would indeed probably be a just bit more interesting for his being here and I would have no problem with him.

Basically, everyone needs to understand when the ban is up he will return or he won't and it's unlikely anything any of us have to say will affect that either way. Deal with it.
