I use to have an account at a stupid music site that keeps track of what you listen to on your computer. And it makes a list of people that have similar taste. One of them was a person from the UK that GUITAR WOMAN once used has a picture of her girlsona. This was after the whole major outting though.

Hey Chojin, when you discovered the truth, was it not unlike that part in Ace Ventura where he burned his clothes and induced vomiting?

Try adding some words to the post, maybe?

Part of me thinks he knew all along and was just waiting for the right moment :<

It would be kind of sad, but for the fact that they're all incredibly annoying and generic interweb faggots.

constructive comment.

For the secret santa thing - I always kind of thought it was bullshit that ojb wasn't banned or anything for fucking up that one year. I didn't post my pictures until like february the first year, which was also kind of shitty for everyone else. But I guess it was the first year and WE ALL LEARNED FROM IT.

I'm fine with the way it is now though. I thought jixby was one of the few funny people left on the forums, but I like that the rules are actually being stuck to for once. It sucks, but boogie's right; everyone knew the rules when they signed up.

Chojin Mar 27th, 2008 10:55 PM

So back on the topic I was talking about!

Boogie, those are all people we banned this year, who have been banned for about 3 months now. Everyone of note that was banned from previous santas has been unbanned. This is my point.

I think it's a shame we should lose members that have been with us for years and years over secret santa presents, of all things. I don't see why we shouldn't bring them back and change the rules to reflect this new policy.

So, I'll ask again - what is the point of permanently banning people over secret santa? The threat clearly doesn't stop people. Does anyone think that if the ban was for six or three months that more people would sign up and not send out gifts? Is it really as grievous an offense as hijacking someone's account or filling the boards with dickgirl porn?

You need to move on, pub. The edit button sure has.

Pub Lover Mar 27th, 2008 11:13 PM

I'm kinda secretly glad I don't have it. It's an excuse.

I'm not sure why I lost it though. :confused

Yeah, I like hitting on girls that are secretly guys. It's way less scary than talking to real girls. :chatter

You say the threat of a permanent ban doesn't stop people. No, it doesn't. Technically, the only way to stop people from screwing it up is to not let them participate at all. Once they're in, they can choose not to follow through if they want. But this is all beside the point.

The point is that you yourself set down the rules for this, and now you want to go back on them. I think you put down the perma-ban remark in the hopes that it would deter casual posters and newbies alike from joining in just to fuck things up, without ever intending to follow through with it. And why not? As you pointed out, there certainly was a precedent for ignoring the people who fucked up.

But last year, we had some people who didn't post shit, and they just happened to be vets. These were people you'd expect to follow through with a board event (and Noob3), but they didn't for one reason or another. And I was cool with that, for a long while. But eventually, I felt like we should enforce the rules, and I wanted it to apply to all the offenders, with no special treatment for the vets.


As for why people from previous years weren't banned, I have no answer for that, apart from that responsibility for banning them should have fallen on whoever was running the event that year. If you want, we can go back and ban all those people.
