I've been a member here for many, many years, and I haven't logged on in quite a while. I just checked today, and I am still banned. It would appear that I have a lifetime ban from the PL, though I still disagree that I did anything wrong that would ever warrant that type of ban, while others probably get away with murder on a daily basis. I've never even attempted to come back and cause trouble under multiple aliases which other people constantly do.

I already sent a PM to a moderator a long time ago asking for my account to be removed, and I never received any reply, so that's why I am posting my request here. I'd rather not be a part of any forum where I can only participate in certain sections, and where members receive lifetime bans. So, just remove my account, thanks.

Done,

Oh wait I'm not a mod

Perhaps you should PM demonhood to see why the ban is still in effect. It could be a simple oversight.

Since I'm not privy to the details, I cannot say if this an accurate problem or it just slipped through the cracks. Probably a lot easier to ask then to jump to conclusions.

I heard bans are supposed to lift themselves after the time period is set by the banner.

So either someone is asleep at the wheel, or the mod banned you perm and didn't tell you.

Neither one is a surprise.

Hey, it's not THAT easy to get perm-banned. Just asking is not enough.

You have to do something REALLY bad, like disagreeing with a mod

Why not just leave and not come back? Nobody is forcing you to come here.

At least you don't have besson3c e-mailing you pictures of his butt and threatening to unleash them on the Internet if you leave.... (believe me, I'm here for the greater good of mankind....)

He's an attention whore and wants to go out in a blaze of glory. In a couple months, he'll register under a new nick, proclaim his triumphal return, and pick up the whining and tantrums right where he left off.

Nostradamus you're not, so don't quit your day job there buddy, or should I call you comrade ? Why would I bother to come back in a few months as you suggest, when I've already been banned for more than an eternity and I haven't yet come back under a new nick ? It is very apparent for all to see that very little intellectual thought goes into your assumptions.

Since you assume alot about me, I will take the liberty to assume a few things about you. I don't even remember you from this forum, so you obviously didn't make any lasting impression, though you seem to certainly remember me, since this is the second thread in which you have replied to a topic of mine just today. It is then fully reasonable for me to assume that you are probably a gay communist stalker, but sorry, my ass is not for sale.

yet another transparent attempt to get yourself banned

And it's truly sad that you'd care enough to even return, see that you're still banned.
If you didn't care, and you weren't such a prima donna, you'd have just walked away.

How unfortunate for us that you're still throwing your tantrum.

It's a matter of principles and also common sense, you don't want an accessible account someplace if you're gone from there for good. Anyhow, this matter is now being looked into, so we'll see what happens.

And not that I really care all that much about it, but why would the fascist besson be sending you pictures of his butt ? That sounds rather disgusting, but then again, coming from him, I'm not at all surprised.

Everything you're saying is pretty much 100 % false, so I can now only assume that you really want me badly. You are a true fanboy, I've had my share of them on here, what else is there to say really.

Let's just get one thing straight, I can call you anything that I like. You're in my territory now. You ventured into my thread with the sole purpose of being an ass, so quit whining and acting like a sissyboy.

A sissyboy would have reported your posts. As for territory, your behavior reminds me of a lapdog marking his. Small, yelping for attention, whether good or bad.

Your tantrum reminds of suicide-by-cop: someone too afraid to end it himself pulls a gun on police so they put him out of his misery.

But what's your point really ? I find it rather amusing that you take the time to reply to this topic, but what stake do you have in all this ? You should feel honored that I'm even taking the time out to reply to a person of your stature.

Since it was you who brought up behavior, I would say that your behavior reminds me of an unwanted cockroach infestation, and you're littering my nice little thread with your untruthful assumptions and pure baloney.

I guess you missed that thread, but I must have missed the thread where you got the impression he is a fascist. I'm not sure if he even knows how to spell it!

Mods can do permabans; this is used heavily for spammers. Mods can also do temp bans, where we set the time to expire. Usually regular-member bans get handled by Admins, but some Mods have handed out temp-bans now and then.

It's better for Admins to handle bans anyway, because Mods cannot edit the ban afterwards. Either to change the time limit, or to undo a ban given in error. Better to let the person who can change things handle it from the start, they're more likely to remember the details then.

"Banning" from a specific forum is a special case. Technically, it's not a ban at all. It's done by editing access permissions for that forum, and can only be done/undone by an Admin. Us Mods can't even see those permissions settings. There is no mechanism for an automatic time limit.

If someone gets a vacation from the P/L, the Admin needs to remember to remove it after a reasonable time. Unless it's meant to be permanent, in which case I'd expect the member to have been told that.

Chances are DH (or tooki? ... i don't recall exactly how long ago he left) forgot to come back to it. The usual answer is to drop a reminder PM to whatever Admin did it, asking for it to be lifted. ghporter is looking into it.

I beg to differ. I'd say that you're the typical leftist anti-USA fascist who claims to be open minded, yet that couldn't be farther from the truth. You fully support censoring people who you don't want voicing their opinions, such as myself. I noticed that you also were defending Chavez in the PL recently, that's no big surprise, since he also favors censorship bigtime and has people jailed left & right and even killed.

If I get reinstated, then all of the miserable leftists, communists, terrorists and dictator supporting people on here will have something to look forward to, because I don't intend to get banned again if I'm reinstated, and I definitely will speak my mind on a whole bunch of different issues that the fascists would rather not have mentioned at all.

Unfortunately, I believe that Besson had a different Chavez in mind when he was busy defending his heroes.

For the uneducated and ignorant amongst us, Chavez is the ugly looking guy wearing the red shirt, standing next to another extremely ugly looking guy with a dirty looking beard in this picture. They'd make a nice couple.

Chavez has plenty of potential dates.

And what's up with the red shirt again ? Everybody knows that commies and socialists like that color, but still. Even for a corrupt, crappy little socialist country, I'd suggest that their leader/dictator goes out and buys a few new shirts. I'm sure that he can afford it with all of the money that he's stolen.

Hey now, I'm not the one who is taking pictures of my butt and sending it around to other people, unlike some strange people on this forum.

I've used at the end of my posts for years, and no, it has nothing to do with any thumbs up any butts, no matter how much certain people's perverted minds wish for it to be true. To each his own.

I think that was started as an experiment. So the admins that didn't have the time for MacNN anymore could just make it so the mods could do it for them. From what I've gathered anyhow (not saying it's teh definitive case.)

Agreed. I think even then more than one admin should be involved.

Ah wasn't informed of that. I was completely banned and yet my time limit thing I believe didn't kick in. I had to msg an admin to get my ban lifted.
If someone gets a vacation from the P/L, the Admin needs to remember to remove it after a reasonable time. Unless it's meant to be permanent, in which case I'd expect the member to have been told that.
Not always. I have been banned before and not given a time limit in which it was going to be removed. But that was years ago, and things were done a bit differently then. I have noticed improvements lately.

Not speaking about besson but to me, most of the people I've met that have claimed to be tolerant and open minded really mean they are so with the people that think like them. They claim others that don't think like they do as being intolerant. And since in their mind being intolerant to intolerance somehow is ok or something.

I don't know how it spins. Being tolerant isn't accepting a view or belief someone shares. Being tolerant is how you treat the very people that view things differently than you.

For example, someone can very well think for example adultery is wrong. That doesn't make them intolerant to adulterers. Now if they chastise them and call them names and mistreat them, then yes, that makes someone intolerant.

I've seen people call themselves tolerant in here that have said venomous things against religion and religious people. This isn't tolerance either.

Like I said, I think too many people think that tolerance simply means going along with a certain lifestyle and thinking your better than everyone else.

*shrug*

Ah, when making fun of someone it always sucks when you make a grammar mistake. It happens to the best of us.

I remember when I was a kid, and me and my friend used to go to the county fairs every year. There was a jailhouse near the place and every year said kid used to love to go up and torment those that were privileged to have a window, by smoking cigs so they could watch etc. (No smoking in this jail)He'd even flip em off and making signs mocking them for being in jail, make fun of them etc.

Fast forward 5 years. Guess where said kid is. Yup, in the same place he was mocking others for being in not 5 years before. (Karma can be a bitch I guess)

I am sure he doesn't think that the kids that now do the mocking are as funny as he once thought.
