Especially when said sigs started appearing to "prove" the user wasn't a pedophile once he was accused of as such after defending child pornography.

Skimming over his past posting history, it seems like that whole child porn incident in the unpopular opinions thread flipped a switch in his head. His posts were mostly political and benign before that, but then after, it's pretty clear he felt a powerful need to act like he's not into kids, so he started posting pics of porn stars and has consistently been making sexualized comments more and more, usually making it clear in some way that he likes adults. I don't think he understands how obvious this transition was, and continues to be for anyone who paid even a little bit of attention. Maybe he isn't even aware of it, and to him, it's all organic. But the timing and his insane stubbornness with it indicates he is trying to redefine himself after a pretty bad incident. I don't expect him to ever admit that, though.

Edit: Just to clarify, I don't necessarily think he's a pedo or anything. I think he aired a dumb view that got a ferocious response and he took on this "booty loving" persona to cover it up. Regardless if its entirely a new persona or its his actual views that he was just suppressing on Atlas pre-incident, it's comically obvious that he's going out of his way to make sure everyone is aware of it now.

Yes, this is what happened.  And everyone who called texarkansas a pedo and harassed him on the basis of a political opinion deserves a huge share of the blame in all this.  It's a ing awful thing to do to someone. Texarkansas has done enough to be banned, but those who provoked him should be banned as well (i realize this will never happen)

Most people didn't start calling him a pedophile until AFTER his response, the worst case of trying too hard I've ever seen.

I changed my signature in response to people calling me a pedophile, not the other way around.

That political opinion being that viewing child pornography shouldn’t be illegal.



You believe abortion should be legal right?

I guess that means you get off on them.

Sorry, that was crass.  But hopefully you get my point.

I admire your commitment to absolute nonsequitur, but I believe the comparison would be that Iíve had an abortion.

it would be nice if there was an option to block individual users' signatures, most are fine but others are obscene or annoying. i doubt that feature is coming anytime soon though  Tongue

You can do that with adblock. Just tell it that the image is an ad and voila. Only problem is you'd have to redo it everytime they change their sig if it's still something you don't like.

This board is full of small, insignificant and insecure people who want to feel agency in their otherwise dull, powerless lives. This leads them to do things like come on to this board, get outraged at the idea that people have opinions, habits and preferences other than their own, and try to regulate the speech of others and clamor for those they find different from them to be removed, all to demonstrate to themselves that they have some control in some way whereas in most other arenas they do not. People's overplayed outrage at Texarkana is a perfect example of that. People found one or two posts that offended them and, because they live in a world where so many things bother them and they can't do anything to get rid of them, they latch on to this person here who says a few dumb things, turn him into an enemy, and try to get rid of him.

Texarkana has said some really dumb and offensive things, some of which haven't made their way into this thread yet, but the people asking for him to be banned are children who will, within a month, move on to some new target for their bullying and ask for him too to be banned. I have a hard time believing that people on this board really are that offended by a sexualized signature, and that they aren't just trying to prove to themselves that they matter and can have control over the fate of another person. In any event, I can think of several people on this board (some of whom have posted in this thread) who are far more harmful or obnoxious to the forum community than Texarkana, and I would be very disappointed to see him banned while other truly horrible people were allowed to stay.

Peenie weenie, if you believe thatís really true, I hope you didnít support the Greedo ban. Greedo did even less wrong than TexArkana did, and he only created socks because he got banned.

Excuse me? Greedo disrupted countless threads and was a much more malevolent troll than I could ever be. I don't go into random threads and drop incendiary comments just for the hell of it like he often did. On top of this, he would derail the thread completely by arguing ad nauseam with other posters.

Youíve never disrupted a thread? Even mods disrupt threads from time to time The only reason why someone needs a permanent ban isnít if they disrupt threads, itís if they donít listen to repeated warnings

I actually was one of the first people to call for a Greedo ban, but I realized that I have no standing to judge him. Maybe if more people focused on improving their own debating skills, and less time trying to get 15 and 16 year olds like Greedo banned, Atlas would be a more welcoming place.

As annoying as Greedo was, he didn't spam NSFW material over 30 times a day on a forum people browse in public.

I've never intentionally posted a trollish or incendiary comment just to derail a thread for my own amusement, which is what it seemed Greedo was doing. To be fair, I wasn't in favor of banning him until he created a sock account.

You routinely bring up irrelevant sexual stuff in threads. Now, you donít do this every time or anything.

Also, let me point out two things: I have no problem with your current sig, and I think you make some good posts. The problem is the sheer volume of sexual posts you make- sometimes it feels like the comment section of a certain famous adult site.

I don't consider myself prudish by any means, and anyone who knows me well would never even consider that word to describe me, but this is Dave's site, and he has weighed in on signature content in the past, and I really don't think Tex's previous signatures were in line with what Dave said he wanted. You have to keep in mind that Tex's signature appears everywhere he posts, and he posts a lot. He was posting a lot more month(s) ago as well.

Tex's increasing amount of posts referencing sex in some way is annoying and weird in its own way (is this like, digital exhibitionism or something?), but at least it's limited to one post where ever he puts it, as opposed to signatures + display names which show up everywhere.

Greedo was very much on his way to a ban. It's hard to say when that might have been, but if he had kept up what he was doing, it would have happened sooner or later imo. He was muted the day before his temp ban. Say what you want about Greedo, but he was incredibly disruptive. He just couldn't stop arguing with people, and for some reason he got into frequent arguments in ways other posters don't. The day he got muted, he had stayed up basically all night arguing with people in one or two threads. This went on for like 5-6 hours. It was incredible. I think he made over 100 posts that day.

Honestly, I donít feel like getting into yet another debate about this forumís moderation. I will say that TexArkana, for better or for worse, will likely be banned within a couple of months. Weíve seen this same song and dance various times.

Step 1: Outrage over some post.
Step 2: Said poster starts arguing with everyone or tries to spin their post.
Step 3: Moderators come in and either do a warning, a mute, or a temp ban.
Step 4: Poster refuses to change their behavior at all, or only does so temporarily.
Step 5: Poster is perma-banned.

Usually, some type of sock account is later made, which is a whole different story, anyway. I think itís best if the whole process is sped up so TexArkana can start getting his appeals in.

How out of touch with reality are you? There is no reason to read into something that is not there when basically everyone feels the same way. The same line of argument works for not banning a Nazi like Einzige. "Oh, you can't control the opinions you see in the real world, so you want to ban him here."

This is about wanting a forum community with literally any degree of decency. "One of two posts"...I have him on ignore with Ignored Users invisible, and I still see dozens of atrocious posts coming through in quotes. It is not a difference of opinions and habits. I don't come here to see these types of comments. Every time I see a new post was made in a thread, it is from him, and it is spam - I don't know what "valuable contributions" we would be missing out on. We have standards for a reason. If you have a problem poster who does not conform to certain standards of decorum, you get rid of them. It's rather simple. No reason to put up with something nobody wants to see.

This is by far one of the creepiest and most inappropriate things I've ever seen posted here.

What if she IS an Atlas poster?

Nah, there are no curvy black ladies who post here as far as I know. And trust me, I would know if there were any.

.... seriously.

and mods the reason I have not reported it is because he's never leaving my ignore list, and I only learned of it thanks to being quoted as that's the only way I can read his posts. BUT COME ON.

I fail to see how that's even the creepiest or most inappropriate comment I've ever made, let alone the creepiest and most inappropriate overall.
