you said that they are "given 3 chances before banned permanently". what the OP wants is 1 chance after being banned permanently.

Shes essentially suggesting that they've had 3 chances already so why bother giving them another one?

Considering you're also a double account, who somehow managed to escape mod's attention, I'd keep quiet on the issue of banned posters.

Re: Giving all banned posters a second chance??

Don't they usually get (permabanned ones) several chances before getting permabanned anyway?

Haha never in doubt the fed haters are against it, shitting their pants at the idea to get pwned again by most of the banned legends.

Re: Giving all banned posters a second chance??

Most of the recently permabanned people are at least occasionally either intellectual, witty, funny or troll/hate in creative ways.. many are great posters. There are numerous uncreative, repetitive posters rampantly trashing the forum this very minute. I propose a direct swap.

The ACC winner deserves a straight permaban for being so widely recognized as a clown. Permabans should be the ultimate prize since so many compete to be the best clown. It's only fitting.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

i know... but it would be good if permabanned posters could get one last chance (even after having received their 3 chances before ultimately receiving their permaban) as an exceptional gift.

Re: Giving all banned posters a second chance??

Considering how much shit you have to do to get permabanned on these boards - no, I think you get enough chances.

I was in the thread and saw the posts he was banned for before they got deleted. If someone came to my house and said "I'll give you $100,000 to get yourself banned on MTF in 15 minutes" I'd post what he posted. Unless he wanted to get himself banned, the whole thing is very fishy. Those posts... it didn't sound like him at all.
What on earth are you suggesting?

And you didn't apparently know him very well at all, perhaps by virtue of the fact that you were not on the wrong end of his agreement or approval. He's always had a nasty streak in him.
