Dor posted her password in the chatbox yesterday, encouraging people to hack her account. She was temp-banned for 7 days.
Then it looks like she was given access to Puffy's account, was lurking the modbox, changing avatar sig and profile picture, etc. Puffy's account has been banned for 7 days or until we can contact him and figure out what's going on.
Neckbeard has been temp-banned for 2 days for needless hostility to a newb on their intro thread.
Cherry Cola, who should know better since he's not a newb like Neckbeard, has been temp-banned for a week for the same reason.
Muir banned for continued derailing and proselytising with paranoid ramblings and poorly reasoned conspiracy theories.
This user has been warned several times and he had enough opportunities to know full well what wasn't a welcome practice here.
We do not discourage conspiracy theories being discussed, if you can make a strong case about secretive plots or fringe data, if you then follow it with sound argumentation and show willingness to learn, understand criticism and interact with other people then all the power to you.
A think another clarification would be in order. Muir wasn't banned for his views, he was banned for using the forum as dumping ground for the advancement of an agenda ie. being a crusader. Given how entrenched he is in his worldview and how justified he feels doing what he does it is very unlikely he would have abated in the future.
I don't think this comes as a particular surprise to many, although the occasion may be a little underwhelming. For further context you can look at the "Should I take acid" thread and our visitor messages.
During his tenure here he has accrued many infractions and several tempbans for his adversarial behavior and a fairly frequent habit of lashing out at people. His stubborn and wilful refusal to acknowledge moderator warnings, dismissiveness and smartass argumentativeness in response to being given warnings and chances have been duly and belatedly noted.
Mustafa removed early for a variety of compounding reasons, including:
- misogynistic/offensive posts
- incoherent communication/language
- being warned repeatedly w/ no change.
This isn't the place for Islamic propaganda, or that of any other religion for that matter. Religious discussions are totally fine, when it's about discussing views collaboratively, but its not for dropping verses randomly across the forum, and spreading an agenda of force/oppression and sexism.
