I agree that AE is about as simple minded and juvenile as they come. His comments to Theodoric are straight off the middle school play ground. He was bullied as a child and thinks that this is the way that you are supposed to behave. He was probably raised on twinkies, kraft dinner, Mcdonalds and religion and likely suffers from a sub par development of neuronal connections.

However, even though AE is basically an ambulating sphincter, I don't think he should be banned. It is much more entertaining to see him completely shot down by the likes of Dr A and Subbie. His big guns don't help him much there.

Perhaps we could start a 'Mocking Fodder' thread in the free for all section and have at him. I appreciate that that is not really the purpose or nature of this board but sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Bad Call
Message 163

Hey Percy,

I realize that you cant please everyone and that you do an excellent job of finding the middle way.

I guess that it was the straw that broke the camels back in AE's case but there are others here who routinely show an equivalent lack of respect for the rules, perhaps more eloquently but just the same. A lot of it goes by because most of us agree with them.

A permanent ban is too severe. Excommunication seems like a failure. OK for the spammers but otherwise leave it to the Catholics.

My two cents anyway.

Re: Bad Call
I chose a permanent suspension for AE because I wasn't aware of any indications of recent interest in discussion of creation/evolution.

I would point to anglagard's Message 556.

I thought that AE had taken some of the criticism to heart and was changing his attitude. I don't think that his latest transgression was anywhere near FEY's vulgar outburst and I don't think that FEY should be permanently banned either.

It is just that I find censorship to be more offensive than just about anything someone could say.

Again, you have a thankless task and you do it well so I will say no more about it.

Re: Wanted-New moderators, apply within
Your assessment of the moderating here is way off. This site is one of the most even handed that I have encountered. Sure, it can be improved but you should not confuse simply being wrong with being suppressed.

The one quality that a moderator requires above all others is objectivity and you have demonstrated very little. Having said that, I would support your appointment as moderator. I am sure that it would be very entertaining.

Re: Excessive
Yeah no I agree. I am not really sure what he did before the obstreperous mocking of the hall monitor's authority and the heavy suspension just made it all the funnier. It is like you threw him under the bus and now we can all point and laugh at his unjustly mangled corpse.

Juxtaposed against BD's 24hr suspension for essentially the same offence adds a nice touch of salt to the wound.
