If he does unban ASSad then Dave pretty much loses all credibility as far as disciplining outrageous and harmful behavior.
If ASSad can get away with it then anyone can.

Your post will be very helpful to the unban NixonNow movement. Thank you.  Smiley

Phil, why is it so important to you to unban him?  Why are you willing to risk yourself and your reputation and your account on his fragile state?

KeystonePhil and KillerPollo: If you want to debate the post of someone’s here, I’d rather you re-post the quote into the “Unban NixonNow” thread, as this thread is only for voting.

I hope you don't mind me stealing your signature.

Not at all, spread the word!

Option 1 -I was apathetic and noncommittal about keeping NixonNow banned until I heard that he bullied John by prank-calling him just because he was mentally retarded.  That is exactly the type of character this forum does not need.

And we don't need members who attack other members either. Now we're going to pick and choose what we find acceptable behavior off the forum?

Another thing, we don't know if NixonNow prank called because John was retarded. John put his number on the forum. NixonNow (and Boss Tweed) called. I love how everyone could get a kick out of John but once NixonNow calls, his actions are somehow worse than what many people said/did to John on the forum.
John wasn't mentally retarted.  He was probably just like a normal 12 year old kid.

I'm not risking my account on this. I can't be banned for supporting the unbanning of NixonNow.

Anyway, this is important because NixonNow is a friend and I know that he can contribute a lot here. He has great knowledge of NJ politics especially and in a year when New Jerseyeans head to the polls, his insight is very valuable.

I believe at one point you said that you would leave if NixonNow acted up again, that's what I seem to remember.   I'll try to dig it up.

Okay, what I found is that you said you'll "take the blame" if NixonNow acts up again.  If you're going to bring us "keep assad banned" people to the negotiation table to get our support, you're going to have to risk your account on NixonNow's mental stability.

And that's just the start.

I don't need to bring you to the negotiation table. I negotiated with Dave. I don't need to put my account on the line for you nor anyone else. I wouldn't risk my account on even the most well liked, intelligent members who have been stable in the past. Anyone can start up again. You're not going to get me to leave if NixonNow starts.

And I love how that's just the start, in your proposal. Would you like me to turn myself into the police if NixonNow trolls, too, Tweed? You know, you're only making yourself look bad with outrageous proposals.

No, you don't need us to negotiate with Dave.  But it looks better if you go to him being able to say 'we have the whole forum behind us under these conditions..."

As it is now, you have probably 40% behind you and that isn't a big enough number for Dave to want to let him come back.  I doubt he wants to make 30 people mad and 15 happy.

That's not big enough for Dave? Excuse me, who talked to him again? Was that me or you, Tweed?

Dave said he was considering it and needed to talk to NixonNow. I am sure everything will go fine with Dave and NixonNow when they talk. On this issue, NixonNow has handled himself very well.

Unless you get more people I severely doubt he will bring him back.  No, there is no 'rule' saying you need a majority, as it is ultimately Dave's decision.  But now there is little incentive for him to do it unless you can get more people.

If Dave can see the good points of just one poster concerning this issue, I think that would be enough.

John was actually 21, and based on the phone call recordings, he was certainly sufficiently slow of speech to convince me he was autistic or in some other way retarded.

I'd be interested in hearing those recordings if someone would post them.

1) Because I said this in my very first post:

Everyone, please, just vote, the “Unban NixonNow” thread is for the arguments, this will just be a poll.

2) Because you could easily put Tweed’s quote into the “Unban NixonNow” thread and not upset me.

3) Because I'm a fascist.
