Your self-admission of your intent to continue to inflict damage through your unwelcome brand of 'humor' shows your blatant disregard and lack of respect for this community. I am therefore compelled to take direct and immediate action.

It really isn't hard to make some small concessions to function better within a group while still being true to yourself. I'm just disappointed that you're not willing to make such a commitment.

One post per day, no rating privileges.

And yes, gloating is inappropriate.

In an odd defense toward Casey, I believe his previous comment that got him into trouble was probably his least offensive post, considering he didn't exactly insult anyone.

But I suppose my opinion doesn't really matter.

His comment stated that he was willfully going to continue the same behavior that has always gotten him in trouble here. So the comment itself wasn't the trigger so much as the intent behind it. I've granted him excessive leeway on this and many previous occsions. This made it clear that he would only continue to push the limits.

I think everyone's forgetting that Casey's not the only person who flames, and to be quite frank, he's calmed down a lot lately.

But in regards to a similar subject, I've been watching these threads and everyone's complaints, and it's funny b/c I think I'm the only person that realizes that nothing is going to change. Despite all the rating comments, number of posts, and other moderations, there will still continue to be a lack of civility in this community. You can't change people, and just because you can add a reason why you have given someone a particular grade doesn't mean that they're going to restrict themselves to respectable manners. As equally annoying as the flames are the people who constantly complain that someone is making fun of them or insulting them, and I'm sure a mailbox full of whiny PM's is just quite as annoying as a mailbox full of insults.

I guess the bottom line is that people can't learn that it's the INTERNET and that people say bad things and if they can't handle it, then they're not ready for the real world where people are much more hostile and mean. And God forbid, the real world doesn't have moderators to keep the crybabies satisfied.

Ah yes and its so hard for people to just play nice eh? This isnt the realworld, this is an internet forum. Further more a forum that everyone could almost certainly meet with very little effort. So why cant we all just get along? I somewhat agree with you, as of late Casey has backed way off, but I side with ho. He flat out said should the chance come up whe would start this all up again. Personally I think Ho's been very lenient with him.

Quite true, but he also has a long track record of infractions. Plus his recent 'calm' has been while already being in a punishment rank. No sooner was he back to Standard that he was also back to his usual antics.

And you're also right that he's not the only one, but he is easily the most destructive one. I'll take action against others should the need arise. This isn't personal. Frankly, I don't really have a problem with him myself. I only have a problem with his negative effect on the flow of these forums and I'm tired of having to deal with it. I'd much rather move on to other things.

Also true. But if the flames did not exist, neither would the complaints.

This is site about a game. I think you're forgetting that to some people, it is their life. ::shrugs::

I know, and the longest discussion of said game is shorter than this thread.

And most of the complaints and discussions on here don't even involve the game. How ironic??

Oh, I know, I wasn't accusing you of that. I'm just pointing out that people need to shut up and go do something productive.
