Date the ban will be lifted: 05-03-2007, 12:00 AM

"I hope a terroist kills your and your family, idiot"

So do the rest of us get to pick on Revstriker now? :rofl:

Actually I've never been bothered by that guy and he seemed pretty chill, if maybe a wee bit old fashioned.

5 bucks says someone on MBW will PM this link to the mods there. I wonder if we'll get our own thread in the mod section there too.

Well, too bad they have to sign up in order to read the OT section here. ;)

We do have three mods here already but bah not a big deal.

no need to PM.

there was a thread in the mod section about the aforementioned thread already prior to all of this.

to be honest, I quickly looked at the page and read through what was going on and figured that it was going downhill so I closed the thread earlier tonight and left for a bit.

now, I'm reading it somewhat thoroughly so I can issue a response and/or see what action needs to be taken.

there's a fine line between what's offensive and what constitutes free speech and I believe that too much control can stifle free speech but too little can lead to personal attacks and fighting and then the line becomes severely blurred. I'm not going to go into legal standards, b/c it's an Internet message board for god sake, but rather my own standard which is usually the test for porn "I'll know it when I see it."

I'm not defending anyone, but I do think Rev made the distinction that Sean's personal attack was inappropriate and that he would let the discussion continue in the hopes of not inhibiting speech. How would you like it if someone said that they hope you and your family gets killed? Rev warned Sean and then as we all know unfortunately that posting PM's on MBWorld is a no-no and thus the ban resulted.

Jangy, I completely understand where you're coming from. If I was of Iranian descent I would be equally as angered--hell, some of the stereotypes angered me. I didn't know that there was a history between you and AMGDriven and I wish I would have known and just locked the thread before things got out of hand. His comments were not appropriate and should have been reprimanded.

I know I'm new, but I know and have been informed that before banning anyone, that they should be pre-warned (like Sean). Thus, I can't really ban AMGDriven, but I'm going to put AMGDriven On Probation, but unfortunately I feel that I may also need to do the same to you to be equally as fair due to the barrage of responses that you issued prior to the lock.

Please give me your thoughts.

WHAT CAN YOU WARN ME AGAINST?

What exactly did I say or do? to be fair? You saying that my defense of my people in any way was at the biggot level of his? Do what you need to. i will do what i need to. I will never stand for such hatred to be spread about my race. I was mending my fences with EVO, but that doesn't mean you can have a center for hatred.

Ban me for all I care. the lawyers get access to it all.

Has AMDouche taken part in any of this? I wonder if I can sucker him into getting on probation too :clap:

Read my replies. Make sure you have grounds. If all you are looking for is a fair excuse, then look elsewhere. I will not stand for it and I will not allow your members to spread hatred and be suported by the moderators.

Jangy, I'm sorry. I re-read it. I must have read it too quickly. I thought people would have issues with the "******" comments, then I re-read it. It's not really that offensive. I'm not going to issue squat.

I actually re-read all your comments and yeah, they were defensive and I'm not going to do it. The post on MBWorld will be edited.

Does that suffice Jangy? I told you guys to give me your friggin thoughts.

BTW man, this is one thing I'm not going to stand for, are you REALLY going to file a 1st Amendment claim against an Internet Message Board? Please be a little bit more rational. Don't shoot the messenger, why do you think I posted here? I wanted to get your thoughts and your side of the story, something that I can't get just from reading and re-reading the posts.
