Tbh I don't even remember this guy but since we are discussing it that means he couldn't have been that bad right?

Seriously? Almost every banned poster has had a petition thread to be unbanned. So the fact that it's discussed at all is really irrelevant. And considering you just said you don't even remember him, how would you know he deserves a 2nd chance?

Honestly, this just shows why I hate these petitions in the first place. Many users either have no idea what they are talking about, or maybe they had a few nice conversations with the banned poster on Discord and automatically decide they they should be unbanned, because "nice guy FF" or something.

I haven't seen a thread to unban that guy who was selling passport, so not everyone I guess? You know like that or I mean maybe.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he is banned for making sock accounts right?

I personally don't think sock accounts by themselves should be grounds for a permaban under any circumstances. Maybe extend the ban for socks, but he has been out for more than 1 year right? That's probably harsh enough

Can't he get his "fix" at the Toxic Place, the various Discords or, ya know, the entirety of the internet?  If this place is that big of a deal to him, perhaps he shouldn't have done something people regularly get banned for.  Let this (and the dozens of other examples) be a lesson to you who lack integrity, yet are addicted to this one, tiny corner of the world.  Don't do it, and if you do because you're a piece of sh**t that wasn't raised very well, don't be stupid about it like Greedo.

These threads should be banned and the minimum age for this site should be raised to 18 or 21.

No. He was temp-banned for spamming (averaging 98 posts per day), which combined with his combative personality and bigoted views ("the thing is 99% of countries in Africa are socialist communist or run by Muslims that is not a real winning strategy.") meant every thread he went into was immediately derailed. After his temp-ban took effect, he created a sock, lied about it when confronted by the mods, and was banned. . .  then created another sock, which was banned . . . then created another sock. . . etc.

I frankly don't get the attitude among some posters that people have a right to post on Atlas and those who break the rules shouldn't be punished, but Greedo in particular was a toxic presence and the forum is better off without him.

Man that thread. I forgot he once claimed that Martin Luther and the Catholic Church weren't real Christians.

Anyway, Greedo has been told how to apply to be unbanned numerous times and if he doesn't (or can't?) do that, that's on him.
