    All kinds of people burnout or whatever and essentially ban themselves. Just indicates some lack of self-control, I guess.praxis

    Maybe he had a major problem with the forum and his wife at the same time. Still... Bizarre!

    Could have been pride, his wife's boobys are sensational.

    Indeed that was exactly the word that got me here Benkei :D But anyway, why is someone banned for posting his wife's boobies? I mean, sure delete the post and quickly have a talk with the guy, but a ban? Isn't that a bit like... puritan? It is not that this is a forum that caters to 10 year olds....

    ...are you sure? Certainly seems like it sometimes, seen the Trump thread at all?
    Gotta be at least a handful of 10 year olds here.
    Anyway, taking bets on the next person banned. My money is on counterpunch. Place by your bets!

    I recognised him when he said something about people having a few mega tonnes of nuclear weapons aimed down their throats. He said that before. I quite liked him, but I wasn’t exposed to the smut.

    Banned @Brett for using racial slurs against another poster. Considering the rest of the post's content, it looks like another suicide by mod.

    They don't read the same to me, Chester was quippy, counterpunch is an essay writer.

    Ah. Yeah, I got that impression too. I don't think he meant the racial slur literally, but it had absolutely nothing to do with the convo, just seemed like a "Ban me already". Even without the politics his posts were the worst. 50% seemed to be "What do you mean by 'cat'?" "What do you mean by 'people'?" "What do you mean by 'the'?" Pain in the aeiou.

    I don't think the intent should matter when calling another poster a racial slur.

    I want to get back to boobs. I think on close examination and scrutiny we may find them subjects of philosophical significance. Maybe even their own forum? The mind boggles - or mine does, anyway.

    Re: Boobs. I told my friend Paul how I used to be active on this site. He said, "So you discuss that if the Earth was a breast, where its nipple would be?"

    In a way all counter-arguments are complaints. In a way.

    In fact, if anyone says anything, they want to make a point; which point is different how they think others see the situation; which is a criticism of the status quo; which means all utterances are complaints.

    Thus: "I like ice cream" is a complant against those, who may believe, with or without evidence, that I don't like ice cream.

    ETC.

    Having just glanced through some of Brett’s discussions I would guess that his issues with the forum stemmed more from his apparent lack of appreciation of science than differences in political ideologies. Just a casual guess but maybe something to keep in mind when dealing with other likeminded folk.

    Twitter also banned 70,000 QAnon accounts. They're full of anger and spite. They say the same ridiculous things over and over.

    Nothing unique about that.

    This forum isn't conducive to a hive mind like Twitter or Facebook. Here it's possible to pin your interlocutor to a wall in a way that just can't be done elsewhere.

    I'm sure there are other reasons.

    That isn't the first time I've seen this suggested (though the other times may have been you as well), but I haven't seen anything to suggest it. Point me at suggestive evidence?
