Best of all are the ones where the quote is attributed, within the caption, to someone famous who is neither the correct source nor the person pictured.

...I think that probably crosses the line into inappropriate, even by my most laissez-faire standards. I won't remove it right away if you say nothing, but I think you should probably at least include a sharper warning.

Not entirely true! I once banned someone from an IRC channel for bad spelling.

Nah, it was elsewhere. The only #isharia ban I've had a hand in was MrSaturday.

Hey, speaking of which, what's up with that? Saturday has been theoretically banned since like, 2007 or so, if most of that period unenforcedly. And yet there he remains, out on the sidelines, somewhere in the nebulous ætherspace of the interstices of the community, always ready to interject with his patented abusively dismissive tetrahydrocannabinol-driven sludge. I can remember a time, way back when, when I hated him; now, he seems like a missing member of the family. Where is he? What's up with this ostracism shit? We used to be able to talk candy-making - I've never met anybody else in a position to appreciate the trouble I go to to make proper divinity, for example. (And I always meant to ask him sometime for advice about our family's traditional fudge recipe, since it always fails due to crystalizing too fucking soon.) Also, last time it was put to a vote in the channel, the "ban" side didn't seem to have any better argument than "because it makes Cev unhappy". And I hate to make Cev unhappy - the boy has had more than his fair share of shit - but jeebus cricso, I strenuously object to being asked to choose between people I like and I strenuously object to the so-called "argument" that that isn't what I was being asked to do when I voted.

I guess if you don't accept "he's a needlessly and intentionally cruel person who derives pleasure from inflicting pain and distress by his own free admission" as a reason to ban him, then yeah the only reason would be making Cev unhappy.

I like how even though he was banned after a democratic vote of all the regulars, of which I agreed that I would accept a decision of "don't ban" from the demos should that be the result, which it wasn't, it's somehow still entirely on my head.

Hey that reminds me, remember the other day when Rhetorica and Pharazon tried unbanning him— against the decision of the vote— simply to try to piss me off? I wonder how Nessari feels about shit like that? Or any of the other people who despise Foop and weren't part of that argument? Surely that deserves a little more criticism than, say, having the gall to call an election.

Spend a little time on the other side of a @ symbol, Radius.

I'm pretty sure that was entirely Pharazon, and not seriously pursued.
