I joined SA right around the beginning of the shift to its current culture, and it has been really interesting to see the toxic weirdos slowly get squeezed out. The fact that the FYAD drama just now happened, after the last of the authentic irony vanished, is reflective of that

That would require Lowtax to actually commit to going to the gym regularly and given his previous behavior the only thing he's willing to commit to is disappointing us.

I like King, but I don't really see what this is going to prove. I'll hold up anything by Steinbeck then, so now what?
It's not to prove anything, it's because people kramering in to go "your favored author is poo poo" without offering alternatives is, while a time-honored goon tradition, also unfunny and tedious. State what authors *you* read so we can make fun of them too, cowards.

Most of my reading material these days consists of the forums so that makes y'all the authors, and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Yeah it involved a legendarily bleak and bloody longrunning manga called Berserk.

That banwave was quite restrained compare to the past poo poo, thankfully (?).
It wasn't Berserk, but it was being drawn by the same person who does that one. If you know anything about all the pointlessly horrible poo poo that happens in Berserk, you already know what was getting set up in the new one.

She posts neat threads about animals sometimes, and does lighthearted silly stuff. Like, I can understand that people want stricter moderation in a mental health care thread, but is anyone really reelig at the horror of some fart jokes? Making her out to be some ghastly monster who messes with people struggling with mentall illness because she posts some fart jokes is stupid imo, and so is givng her a punishment that people get for dox poo poo, being actual irl rapists and pedophiles.
That's not what she got perma'd for, and again you're conveniently leaving out the underage aspect of the fart fancition she would not stop posting.

Also we're not 'making her out to be' a drat thing, she *literally did* post in a stickied mental health thread, and it was apparently so egregious that a mod had to edit her post.

I'm guessing she paid to unban. The point is to just ban her for posts others would be banned for, rather than giving her permas for posts other would only be banned for. Does that not make sense?
They specifically un-perma'd her, if you read the image that Phy posted further up. Both the nankeen and hallelujah accounts were supposed to get a perma but it got overwritten by a normal ban because radiumcode

The original permaban was for threatening a politician, which was edited out and she apologized for. The subsequent bans were for unrelated posts. We don't see any genuine reason to maintain this permaban.

Well, would you please articulate to me why you feel it necessary to keep a permaban in place? Permabans are meant to label the worst of the worst, and she is still being punished appropriately for her posting.

Avs made a bad call however you slice it
The sheer number of people crawling out of the woodwork to defend her and trying to claim she was perma'd for things she in fact was not seems to say that people are desperately trying to slice it otherwise.

She was allowed back, after she promised to stop making threats against the muppet. Again- it does not matter how obviously a joke the threat is. It does not matter how clearly impossible the claim of her actions is. The Secret Service do not care, and the phrase 'by any means necessary' is very much a veiled threat.

Lowtax has, in the past, already been visited by the G-Men because of this poo poo. More than once, I'm told. He is not keen on seeing them again.

He still faked being a medic in a warzone. There is a nonzero chance someone died because he had no medical training thought YouTube qualifies as training for anything. loving up first aid because you want to play doctor is still murder.

RFC, what is your point, regarding Caro? You seem weirdly defensive of him and the actions he took

Yes, he was indeed just pretending. Playing at being medic and at being soldier because that's what his broke brain demanded he do, and for his trouble he got his own personal suite in a hell on earth until they managed to get him out of there. People very likely died as a result of his actions, either because he didn't know what he was doing, or because pointing and shooting isn't particularly difficult. What, again, is the point you are trying to make about him?

I wouldn't wish that he went through on my worst enemy, but he is not a good person nor was he a victim of circumstance. He deliberately set out to put himself into that area.
