I see that topic:
Was he TM? Or is Ash Lael?
Anyway, if he was TM, I think he deserved it (the ban) that time. The topic that he opened was only for joking the last things that are happeneds. And maybe for all the other things that he usually do :P . I don't want to be grumpy or offend someone, but I think so.

Unfortunately, that would be TM.

Farewell, sir. I salute you.

BTW, I forgot to ask why there are a lot of "Nathan Ashby" wondering around... :confused:

'tis a tribute to the one and only Ash. Compare to the kind of inspiring scene where in "Spartacus" (a film I only read about on Wikipedia btw), everyone gets up one by one saying "I am Spartacus".

Or, if you favor less action-packed movies, the equally inspiring scene in "Dead Poets' Society" (a film I read the book of, but never saw) where, at the end, all the students climb on their desk in a mute protest as their English teacher Mr. Keating leaves the classroom.

What passed between Jeff and Ash is unrelated. What Ash did might have been impolite, and also unwise, but the punishment did not fit the crime.

And a community should stick together.

TM was banned? Again? That would be the third time, geez. And I don't think he really deserved it this time. I hope he was not 'indefinetely' banned.

He's never definitely banned for good. But he only lasted a few months this time though

Oh my. The latest in the AshbyGate fiasco.

I think by now everyone should be aware that protesting JV's habits by misquoting him will result in a ban. What TM did was akin to insulting a dragon after it has gnawed off all but one of your limbs. Hopefully, he'll be back, and hopefully, he'll be more ... restrained.

As Thuryl mentioned in another thread, TM was not banned for changing his sig. He was banned for various things he has done and was warned about, including evading the swear filter.

I like TM and am sorry to see him banned, but it shouldn't be surprising AT ALL that someone who ridicules others without prompting and throws hate language around for effect is temporarily banned.

The news of TM being banned has made my day all the better.

Actually, I don't really hate him. He's just a little overbearing and egotistical. After a while, everyone gets used to it.

I somehow get the feeling that these happenings will slow things down around here... the fear of banning seems to be spreading, and the quickly-growing swamp of topics that is General is getting louder. Soon things will probably crash, followed by a long quiet period.

TM will be missed just as much as Ash, though moniker changes probably won't happen.

I'm not terribly surprised that he got banned, really... actually, I'm impressed that he lasted this long. (Last time, he lasted about three days before being re-banned, I believe)

Most of you know how I feel about TM, and his current offense is very different from Ash's in intent, but even I think that banning him was way overboard. Has he done something extraordinary recently that I simply haven't noticed? If the signature was the proverbial straw, the camel must've wanted its back broken - compared to some of his other actions and statements, it's nothing. Nothing at all.

Odd as it feels, I'm against TM's banning. If I've missed something major, tell me.

EDIT: Well, I personally prefer Ash to TM, so no, my moniker won't change. And it's scary, but you're probably right about the crash.

As has been noted before, TM posted in a manner which allowed certain offensive words to appear despite the protective barriers in place.

That said, yes it does seem evident that TM was looking to get banned. Actually, he was BANNED. Subtle but important distinction, especially with the grammar police on high alert.

Edit - Yes David, most members do know how you feel about TM, mostly because it keeps getting mentioned over and over and over and ov...

There are only two ways people get banned:

1. Repeatedly break the rules ( http://www.ironycentral.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=000013 ) How much rule-bending you can get away with depends on many things, but generally not breaking the rules should keep you safe from this.

2. Anger Jeff when he is having a bad day. (See Creator's recent banning and all the noise it generated.)

So the only thing that can happen to people who are generally annoying without breaking rules is that they can be made to feel unwelcome by those who find them annoying.

The second point, incidentally, is a fairly recent addition. You will notice the significance by the distinction, for example, that nobody so much as blinked when Public Enemy got the Boot, but Creators and TM's banning have nearly sent the boards into riots.

I think it's completely logical that nobody cared when Public Enemy got banned... I mean, that's a pretty bad track record he's got there...

TM's ban will expire on March 16... and no, it wasn't for the signature. It was, rather, for an excess of rule-shattering.

Conditions for Ash's return have been proposed, but I'm not sure how they're coming or if they have been or will be accepted.

EDIT: And since I see E-Master has made a fool out of himself, he's banned too. His ban is unlikely to expire. :P

Jeff had nothing to do with TM's banning.

Don't get it twisted.
