I liked Jay and his weird sense of humor, unique point of view and his commitment to his principles. However, on several instances years back he did cross lines and was personally offensive to and abusive of fellow member(s).  I could see why some others are not shedding a tear on his departure.  Tbs, I think this place is a weaker site in his absence. There is a continuing trend of good or at least unique posters leaving and being replaced by what I find to be inferior posters.  You also lose another voice on the right. So the echo chamber gets bigger, and the standard bearers of the conservative  point of view on this site are trolls like Winfield. Sad.

JCL would beg to differ and why would sense need to be knocked into Bushie.

I beg your pardon, who says I don't need sense knocked into me?  Some sense has already been knocked in. See the last page of my Update thread for the defining post.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

You don't just ban someone who has been here for a decade. Who cares if he reached a certain number of points within an extremely stupid system? The mods need to do a better job of utilizing discretion based upon the dynamics of the forum and not adhering to inane rigidity when this place clearly transcends such.

Oh, I was going to agree to this, but it seems jmfcst forced the issue himself. It does seem as if he was having to balance between this and his family duties [shrug].

You're talking about someone who has been around for twice as long as you, and when you consider that for close to an entire year after coming here your posting history was around 80% stuff like this...

BRTD let's think about this for a moment. In the run up to the last days, I suggested to jmfcst (more than once) that he just calm down, and get over his mod thing. At that point, he was maybe at 75 death points or whatever. You would have thought he got the message. What did he do? Well he went to a Board with a gay moderator, and posted sh*t with the word "homosexual" painted in red (and he himself admitted that it was over the line, or at least accepted the score of death points he got).  That got him to 95 death points. So I ask you this. Given that factual pattern, isn't it the most reasonable surmise that jmfcst wanted to leave, and rather than just going quietly in the night, chose to make himself a drama queen?  

One has a responsibility when here, to try to work with others, and fit in, and respect the rules, and when something goes awry, handle it as an adult. None of that happened here. Sure it is sad and all, and I like jmfcst, I really do, but in the end, his behavior was really narcissistic. It should be a good lesson for all the youngs here to ponder. No matter who you are, it is never all about you, and you won't do well in life, if you don't make reasonable compromises, exercise self restraint, and carefully pick your shots, where you want to make a stand. Rather, you will be more of a crash and burn artist.

If he really wanted to get himself banned, he could have simply asked outright.  Like that one kid from Colorado or somewhere whose username escapes me right now.  He put up a thread in the Atlas saying "please ban me", and Nym did so.  Very little drama.  But no, jmfcst preferred to troll his way out for several years instead.

While the banning of Jmfcst is truly tragic it makes me wonder how much mourning would be shed for him if he joined in say October of 2011 instead of when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

Hmm.  That's not really relevant, BRTD.  J was a troll; his length of tenure here and my past posts do not justify you attacking me, nor do they combine to make him no longer worthy of a ban.  He was a troll, deal with it.

Among all the bans that have been enacted since I joined, Jmfcst is certainly not the most undeserved.

to take another angle on this, does anyone else wonder exactly what he does all day now?  surely he has returned to read some evidence of the hysteria he left in his wake, but... he would spend countless hours 'trolling', arguing against various walls and rocks about the New Testament, and now... gone!
