I actually signed up for this site based on the thread started by him and wondered why he was banned. So I took a few days to go through his posts, mainly to see if the Join Noob thread was a scam of sorts or if he was genuine.

I spent countless hours poring over every post he has made in the last few months and some going further back then that and have realized that he my have been banned without real reason. I know he spazzed out on that last rant in the Transparent Moderation Log & Site Topics thread with physical threats but I see far more jackassery and questionable behavior going on here from being a lurker, and even more once I decided to join and post.

Please be clear that I am NOT bigbris1 but am an unvested party that thought he got a raw deal overall. I'm a fan of polling the community, what say ye?

Didn't he get banned, unbanned then banned again? I liked him FWIW. I wouldn't mind seeing him back. Speaking of being back, that co-worker I wanted to JO in front of is back in the office full time.

The physical threat thing seems to be a line in the sand. I think they'll let him back after some time passes.

Wrong.

He was initially banned for making a thread in Men's Clothing section generating buzz about an item he was selling on B&S. This is a clear violation stated in the rules. If it was any other person, he would have been perm banned but he was only banned from B&S.

Mods were still lenient with him and allowed his aliases around but he continued to push their buttons and resulted in a perm ban.

Clarification: Is this a poll just for BigBris1 or are we to assume all the other BB's too?

We've yet to determine just how acceptable this "unvested" look is.

Please refer back to this thread for updates.

I read through the epic posts and determined that this person I looked up to in a sense got a raw deal. Just gauging what the other members feel. The moderators can check my IP and whatnot to confirm I am not this person.

Ok, not IBP. He just couldn't shut up about how he was wronged. This was in posts and apparently in PMs. Enough was enough. I wouldn't mind a return, but have no big feelings either way.

You seem to know a lot about the situation for a member with only 2 posts...

And for a guy named Margarine. And you seem to have strong opinions on the matter...

Before you look up to him you should know he pees his pants.

I don't know either person but they should stay banned because too many threads are devoted to them, imo.

Can't we all just get a bong?
