Thank gawd! I'm against banning people just because they're annoying. But he was becoming a serious impediment. No attempt at all to contribute, just tearing down at every opportunity.

Can we make it permanent?

Yes, please. And can you imagine the caterwauling on the Advanced Forum?

Exactly. FNB has become a troll. He posts with no other purpose than to antagonize and rile people up. At least he's stopped posting so many annoying pictures. He should have been banned for doing that.

+1 million. God, that was annoying.

Just looking for the approximate date as to when the AF pile on will stop? It's getting egregious. He's not hear to defend himself and I thought the concept of incarceration, for the part of the political spectrum most of the pile on'ers belong to, was rehabilitation vs. punishment? It seems that my understanding of this was incorrect, and it's just to punish and pile onto someone not able to defend himself.

I'm in no way defending AF's action, merely saying that no one is looking too good at this point.

Who's piling on? I made one joke, and I saw one other one, besides that nothing.

Besides, he'll pile on plenty when he gets back.

You missed AF got timed out for, once again, using a word he should probably not use? And then, the resulting posts, that have been ratcheting up the ante btw, indicating he would support this or that racist thing?

I could be wrong, but I seem to see >1 per day. And I don't think he's coming back.

I haven't followed whatever the recent backstory is it at all, and I like AF. But he certainly brings it on himself with his -- let's call it "persistence". He knows perfectly well that his posts antagonize some people. I assume that he finds that amusing and enjoys drawing people out.

This sounds about right, and I agree its a little ridiculous to take jabs at a guy who isn't around to defend himself. It also confirms my suspicion that he is treated unfairly by a lot of other members (and held to a different standard as a result). I mean, he's being picked on when he's not even around to make statements to provoke it.

Really? He strikes me as pretty persistent. I wouldn't think he'd give up now.

Dewd, we pick on everyone, here or not.

Ernest, Kalra, Bergdork Goodwank, etc...

I'm not arguing with this. I am saying that he's at the very least in time out, has been dealt with by the mods, and questioning the appropriateness of him being the butt of jokes to ascribe positions to him I don't think he holds.

In the grand scheme of things, eh. My sense of fair play made me speak up.

Fair enough. I suppose I just see AF as different from that group. When he posts he's not trolling, he's expressing his earnest opinions, unpopular though they may be. Do I think he occasionally says things just to get a rise from people? Sure, we all do. But 9/10 of the time he's just being himself, rather than trolling.
