I don't see the big deal (other than the whole free-speech detail), TM gets banned all the time.

Did Ash get banned? What the heck did I miss?

yeah, you kinda missed that.
the only reason i decided to actually post instead of lurking is cuz TM got banned and Ash seemed to generate a name craze in his wake that i decided to pick up on.

i had nothing against TM and i found him to be rather funny

Hmmm.

The way I saw it, TM got fed up with the slow progress on getting Ash unbanned. He therefore changed his signature to something similar to what Ash did and be the martyr that he is.

But, since Jeff did not ban him (as evidenced by his BANNED title), I suppose this is not the case. I would have been quite sad if he had been banned indefinately, but I don't think he is incapable of doing anything to deserve it.

Anyway, this has got to be the record for the most unbannings of one account.

For the last time, Ash got banned because Jeff asked him to change his sig and he refused. More details here (along with a fair amount of misinformation).

TM, on the other hand, got banned for something entirely different. He was warned for misbehavior mostly around the Ash incident, but finally banned for evading the autocensor.

They were totally separate, even though they were near to each other in time.

They might have occasionally been some of the most contemptious people to get along with, but without them, we are truly lessers. We have lost part of the community. They might not have always said agreeable things. They certainly didn't try to get on with everyone. But they were every bit a valuble member as you or I.

Don't get it twisted.

You ban TM, right?

Yes.

And it's worth elaborating that the return time of either or both may be measured in days if all goes well.

TM gets banned/leaves, Alec gets banned/leaves: these are fairly frequent occurrences.
So far neither has caused the end of the world.

Yes they have. You just didn't notice it. :cool:

And by the way, I can't remember Terror's Martyr leaving without getting banned first, but I could be wrong.

I think TM has stormed out at least once.

TM, perhaps. Ash is occasionally contentious but never contemptuous and very rarely disagreeable. He does try to get along with everyone.

—Alorael, who would not want Ash and TM's crimes confused. Ash doesn't deserve to be lumped in with TM.

Only link I saw between Ash and TM besides both being designers, is that they both enjoy some simple crudity.

Hey, coming from FBM that's saying something. :P

I seem to remember you considering yourself rather unpopular on these boards at one point in time.

Okay, so it's not the end of the world, as long as Ash comes back. *hopes silently*

I don't confuse the two, dear Alo. I do, unfortunately, remember times where Ash had been greatly.. mean.

As for my own remarks to myself, it doth depend on who you would be. On the most part, I think I got myself upgraded to "tolerable, sometimes to the point of agreeable", a while ago. Before then was quite fun, though.
