Banning Teddy was an overreach by the moderation team. This is coming from someone who is generally supportive of the mods.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

Teddy should have been banned many years ago, as the potential consequences of his mental illness is one of the few things around here that could lead to this forum not existing in the future for reasons other than Dave's inattentiveness.

That being said, I disagree with his banning for this reason.

I probably could have made that post clearer (reason = statements to Jew Republic), but do you have any other problems with what I said.

any poster useful enough to forewarn the forum of a potential system crash in 2038, deserves another chance.

That's like saying it was anti-Hispanic to ban Straha. Mind you I don't support banning Straha but it's a pretty obvious logical fallacy.

Um, no. His autism is the reason why he is a bit crazy. These actions are the result of that. Nice try, Zach.

What is a logical fallacy is pretending the forum is like a school to defend his banning.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

The thing is, he took the issue on the forum and admitted it was him that was talking about murdering another poster.

He shouldn't be posting on an election forum. He should be seeking out professional help. He's a nutjob, to put it bluntly.

When even Eraserhead supports a ban it ought to tell you guys something.

Remember, this is not the first time. Teddy has acted creepily and threateningly to other posters multiple times. He's been given second chances multiple times.

I sympathize with the fact that he has mental problems but this forum will never solve those problems for him (which should be obvious from what has happened with him on here).

So Teddy has mental issues. Big deal. I know that. And he has professional help, sillies.
