I don't hate him, but I still think he ought to be banned.  Though, I would be fine either way.

Just like I am friends with jamespol, but as much of a friend as he is to me, I would be the first one to stand up against any kind of unbanning of him.  He needed to go.

In fact, when he was in his sock days, I would personally PM Nym90 and alert him to the fact that he's back.

Uh, what?  Nym was only given Modadmin power just over a year ago.

Even so, I still alerted Nym90 and Dave about his sock.  You can ask Nym90 that I did alert him.  I believe he had one sock after Nym90 received his ModAdmin status, because I do recall PM'ing him about it.

I also hated Libertas and Einzige if you remember. I am changed person through Christ. Besides I warmed up to Straha long before that anyway, if you recall I was a big advocate for removing him from mod review.

The one he had around (I can't remember the name) January 2011.  I found the PM reply that Nym90 sent me saying his account has been banned.

Thanks Jeff. His new account has been banned.

Also Straha's postings significantly improved from when he started posting, he went from mostly just useless spam and troll crap to very witty and funny stuff by the time he was mod reviewed.

no, for the principle, not because I like him, nor do I totally disregard a special-case theory at work in this case (though I as a rule disregard special-case.)

I don't like to disregard anything, but I make an exception for special-case, and would never consider making an exception for a special case.

I support banning him because he was a troll, but not necessarily just because he created his sock accounts.

If he was a troll then so is J. J., who no one has ever proposed banning.

It might be interesting to see a sample of Straha's alleged "troll" posts, a word that may well have different meanings to different people in any event (jj, who yes gets it wrong from time to time is a troll?). Again the problem, is that so few here are familiar with the guy's portfolio of posts.

All those who vote in favor of banning should be banned, and Straha should operate the guillotine.

J.J. is not a troll, Geezus H, but he's a stubborn stubborn man, and I'm glad to call him my good friend in real life Smiley

I don't know what Straha did before, but during his brief return, he acted pretty decently, haven't he?

So, he was, according to some opinion, a troll before. Big f**king deal. Joe's still a troll and he's a mod now.

Exactly.

Seriously, these guys need Jesus or something because my god man, the attitude toward Straha is extremely reactionary.  I mean, youse guys are acting like he killed your father in a drunk driving incident and not just some guy who trolled this forum THREE GODDAMN YEARS AGO!

Yes, we need a zero tolerance policy that mandates the banning of anyone who advocates anyone being banned.

I don't care at all, my vote was yes.


I still don't understand why people think this is a big deal.  They don't get upset when people go to jail (REAL JAIL) for posting unpleasant things on the internet, but if somebody gets banned from this retarded place they act like it's the worst thing since Kony.  The recreational outrage that comes from the mod actions here was funny for awhile, but it's starting to get a little depressing.  Don't you have guys any ANYthing else to feign outrage over?  Maybe another Republican in the White House?

Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time.

Recreational outrage is a good term for a lot of it, I think. Do I support the banning of Straha? No, not really. He was never officially banned in the first place, his shenanigans were years ago, and his posts since returning were all fine and occasionally interesting. I think all of that is worth stating and the mods should be reasonable and take that into consideration.

But am I going to lose any sleep over this? No. Mod criticism would have so much more impact if people would not freak out over literally every decision ever made. (And also if it was all just a lot smarter, but that's another issue.)
