...must be real losers. Seriously. If somebody derives that much pleasure from sneaking back in to "fool" a bunch of anonymous people in a virtual community, they need to move out of mom's basement and see the sun (and other people) once in a while.

What say you, community?

yup. It's basically just really sad. Just like...pitiful. Pathetic.

Like....how bad does life have to get that a forum means that much to you? It's the fucking internet for crying out loud.

I'm of two minds on this.

One: there are members who went off the deep end, got banned, and eventually came back under different names. Vanity and Bris come to mind. Well, not sure on Bris but I think I know his new handle. Anyway, I think that if you're contributing and not going off the deep end again, it's all good.

Two: members who troll, get banned, and then come back to troll more (Petrus, for example). Dunno what to tell you about them, but I think at least a few of them could benefit from therapy, better drugs, and maybe some time away from the computer.

lol - you mean this bigbris: The following users have used the same IP (note: not necessarily a match) bigbris1 bigbris2 Nacho Bear Animal Thug The Gooch Analyst Bruiser3 thirstmode which excludes several subsequent IDs in the bigbris sequence (maybe he was out and about then, they're not coming up on the IP checker) which he started when he was in timeout purely to go after me (when ironically I wasn't the one who holed him) but includes at least two trolls, and one ID purely set up to start a poll asking whether bigbris should be unbanned. So....uh...ya...umm...contributor....uh...

Wondering if any banned member has ever been unbanned after tendering an apology to the mods or something like that?
