    To be compeletely honest, I haven't seen anything from him in my time here that would warrant that 'Talksox nicest member' title he had for so long. His 'generosity' tends to be neutralized by what seems to be non-stop snittiness and wiseassery. I'm not claiming I'm a saint either, or close to it, but to not ban someone who was CLEARLY out of line just because of what he did months/years ago is pretty silly. I would have given him 10 days to 2 weeks instead of one week. I don't agree with the premise that the baitee should punished just as much as the baiter. When people do get banned for conflicts like this, that seems to be the general route taken, and I don't know why.

    All in theory, I have no say in this.
    You're right, his past actions shouldn't be a factor when a ban is considered. He deserved it and rightfully so, I was just surprised. But as for his generosity, he's put a lot of his own personal money into the site, including cash prizes for contests, game tickets, fairly expensive christmas presents for everyone, t-shirts, etc. Doesn't excuse his actions, but we (those of us who were here) shouldn't forget his generosity either.

    Agreed. When I read his comments in that thread, it almost doesn't sound like him, so I went back looking for why someone hijacked his account... I've never seen the offline stuff he gets into or PMs and don't recall seeing him be a dick to anyone so maybe I just missed that.

    But yeah, he's been like the Santa of the site and does the Superbowl grid all out of his own pocket.

    I agree with no one! Not even myself!

    Wait, if we all disagree with each other out of principlle, doesn't the act of everyone accepting that principle mean we're actually all in agreement?

    I agree to not disagree but also not to agree. Yep, makes no sense to me.
