He quit with an account suicide thread back in 2015 out of the blue.

Spammer is the reason on the ban page.

Probably had spam posts deleted and other posts were trying to mask being a spammer.
Or an alt of a perviousLy banned spammer. If there's no "contact us if this is done in error" you can be confident it's been checked out.

thanks, kinda feels like a band of brothers in here sometimes, so many losses
Yeah. We're getting folks back over time though, brighter days ahead.
It's not a real party until you also bring back:

Greatness Gone
Costanza's LARP
Speculawyer
Kittonwy
ToxicAdam
Empty Vessel
fistfulofmetal
Dennis Dyack

and of course Otrebor Nightmarecoat


Some of these examples may or may not be unserious

I just got banned from ResetEra (for 11 days) for a comment about a topic about a judge in the USA that ruled horribly in the favour of a boy who raped a girl:

Look at my first below comment below:

MY FIRST COMMENT ON THE TOPIC:
You know in South Africa, in the townships where most africans live, the community hunt you down and cut off your penis if you have been found to have raped someone.
Often times the police are powerless to do anything because the community crowds can turn on the cops.
I also heard in some middle eastern countries (and i'm not sure if this still happens) but they cut off your hands if you are caught stealing.
I don't condone any of the above but can understand why people take such drastic measures. To send a message to others who even think of rape or theft.
What message is America sending its people with rulings like this?
Jesus, what is going on over there in the States???
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Now look at this first response from another member:

SageShinigami said:
Why bring it up? Had nothing to do with the thread.

MY RESPONSE:
This topic is about the rape of a child is it not?
My post is about the same situation as it is in South Africa currently and the consequences of a failed justice system which forces people to use mob justice.

“This also means that at least 46 children are raped every day and at least two children are murdered every single day in South Africa. Only 21% of child rapes cases and only one in three murder cases resulted in successful convictions,” said Zakhele Mbhele, DA Shadow Minister of Police.


That is 2018 stats. Lord knows what it's like now in 2019.
And you tell me it has nothing to do with this topic? I fucking grew up in Cape Town where murder and rape is an everyday occurence which is why I posted what I did about people taking the law I to their own hands. My brother in law and cousins are cops and have to deal with seeing horrific acts like these ecery damn day. I did not encourage mob justice in my initial post. GTFO with that.
This is why I try to refrain from posting in thse threads because you always have some people to be assholes and try to question your posts.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------



English is not really my home language but the reason for my post was what happens when the justice system fails the people like it has been doing for years in South Africa. Hence the community exacting mob justice to rapists and other perperatrators. I even explicitly said in my post that i don't condone mob justice but fully understand when people do these things, probably out of frustration that justice is not served to criminals. You can see that towards the end of my response to that user that i got upset because this happens frequently on ResetEra. If you say anything that is not in a certain way, then you get jumped on by fellow users and eventually get banned because 1) you lash out at the users or 2) the mod just bans you without you getting a chance to better explain your post.

This god damn post gets me an 11 day ban. I am fully done with that trash forum. I got even got banned once for saying Michelle Obama was hot for her age.

I am fully now commiting time to NeoGaf. I hope that here my opinions and views are not surpressed as i would like to share my thoughts and feelings with all gamers on various topics.
I don't condone violence in any capacity towards any individuals and i hope that i can form lasting friendships here with fellow gamers who enjoy this hobby that i love.

Welcome.

It’s probably a good thing you decided to post here full time before posting that, because your 11 day ban is likely to turn into a permanent one now that you have posted in this thread.

Hopefully you’ll find a bit more sanity around this place. Cheers 🍻

Before this incident yesterday I asked the mods to remove my account from ResetEra forums after I was banned for saying Michelle Obama looks hot for her age. My account however was not removed and I thought i would give it one more chance and this honestly is the last straw.

The reason for my ban from that place is 'rationalizing violence' when I explicitly stated in my post that i don't condone violence against people.
If my post about this gets me banned there permanently then good, that is what i want. To not be associated with that forum in any way shape or form.

I look forward to discussing many things here with you guys.

If you want to add me to some games online. My PSN UserID is I_C_PEE1

Thanks and have a great day guys/gals.

Well advocating I wouldnt agree with either. I'm not saying all should take that course of action, just what I was planning. And I'm still interested in buying the game. Just not from EGS.

Imo thats neither promotion nor advocating but w/e..

Admitting to piracy has always been a bannable offence. Just take the loss, man.

Yeah, it has. I’ve been here since 2009 (+3 years lurking before that). Piracy has always been bannable.

This is a gaming forum so more sensitive treatment of games over other media should hardly come as a surprise. Especially if you have been here for more than 10 years.

what happened to terrisus, he seemed like the right brand of autism for this board

i'm too afraid to deep dive, don't want my heart broken
So I talk to terrisus fairly regularly. Don't know how much of the history was lost over time but apparently he requested his account be deleted after a nonsensical ban. He said he left a goodbye message that was also deleted by one of the mods at the time. I didn't really know the guy at that point and don't remember much from that era (no pun intended).

Now would he come back if he was allowed/welcomed back? No idea. Can confirm however that he's alive and well and still correcting spelling and grammar like a champ.

I, for one, would welcome the return of GAF's old Grammar Nazi Overlord!

I've unbanned him, and he's welcome to come back. We treat everyone fairly and transparently these days. Could you pass along the message?

Why was I banned for promoting piracy when I did no such thing?
Hello Ryu,

Promoting/advocating Piracy has been a bannable act in NeoGAF for a long while now. The mod team agreed that your post (link) was just that and gave you a temporary break from the forums. As stated in the ban message, please do not continue to promote piracy here.

Have a wonderful day,
Faust

Can't tell what the hell exactly speculawyer was banned for, but it was by bish. He's unbanned, and I emailed him.
Greatness Gone, also a spurious bish ban, overturned and emailed. It's been a full decade though.
ToxicAdam, permed for pushing back against shitting on rich people? Unbanned, emailed.
Damn, I got a hat trick lol :messenger_tears_of_joy:

(Empty Vessel was actually a serious inquiry BTW. He's one of the few who were right on about modern monetary theory before it became a thing. I wonder why he got banned though.)

Oh he's not? Weird, I remember a lot of discussion back in the day about why he was banned.

Upon some searching I guess he was banned in the Ukraine news thread by besada? But it wasn't a perm though.

Hey Faust,

Thanks for getting back to me, yeah I agree that I said what I said I just disagree I was actually promoting piracy. But I will take this note into account and not talk about such matters again.

Thank you for the fairness :). Greets!
