i knew sooner or later Mike would be permabanned, BUT the thing that is appaling for me is that posters can get away with literally nothing, even though a zillion of posters are disgusted by the post (and show that publicly on the forum), and then posts that were only written out of frustration and because of that exaggerated are considered as "discriminatory remark". THIS is the problem, and this is for my taste not objective.
yeah, I can nothing but agree with that. there are much worser posters, especially in GM, who walk around freely and unpunished. besides that I'm not really fond of the whole permaban thing either but that point aside, maybe some people who feel 'attacked' or 'offended' should be a little more strong in those cases and not cry about every single post.
Right now we are going to have a snowball effect probably, lots of people mad because of this ban so they will be reporting more and more and if that's according to the rules the moderators should hand out more infractions as well.
