Plenty of people could post his threatening (and cringe) PM's when he got called out and made to look stupid. There is nothing wrong with calling out the truth of what he did.@dieworkwear can't ban anyone. He is not an administrator or moderator. But I am, and I spy with my little eye someone who might get banned, purely for being an asshat for no good reason.
Here's the thing, not everyone is going to get along. Block and move on. Or just ignore. But if you decide to just get into it with the same person over and over again, then you become the issue.
The forum has grown far larger than my co-founder and I could have imagined. So maybe the neighbourhood bar analogy is not so apt. But maybe this is a large social club. In this space, there are many congregations. If you don't like someone's circle, walk around, have a drink, talk to others. Don't insist on telling the persons at the one group that one of the group leaders sucks.
Okay, so, I hope that we are all clear now.
I am going to cordially disagree with this, speaking as someone who was the smart kid and was indeed badly bullied, but with hindsight's perfect acuity, almost certainly for reasons more complex than "lol nerd!"The smartest kid in the class typically gets bullied and mocked. It's nothing new. Some people just can't help it.
That's a totally unfair and incomplete portrait of Derek's contribution to the topic of menswear and to this forum. He can go deep when the discussion warrants it and he can have fun with it when the discussion is light. He has a great understanding (better than most) of various levels of formality in fashion, and various style tribes too. Not because he is superhuman, but because he takes the time and effort to observe, read and understand.
I'm sorry you were also bullied as a kid, and maybe this whole rationalization you just wrote helps you process it. If so, please hang on to it. But I find it offensive, as I read it as blaming victims and justifying abuse.
But maybe it's just me and I can't read your room, or something.
I mean, I don’t find all of Derek’s stuff funny, but that is a pretty strong opinion about an innocuous cartoon.I can’t remember a single time when his attempts at humour have worked for me. In particular I remember a post about wearing a white fleece and looking like a sexy cauliflower that was absolutely tragic in the attempt / desperation to be funny. I’m sure some people find him hilarious. I feel sad for them!
