Default I respectfully disagree.

There is a giant white elephant sitting in the middle of this message board, and ignoring it isn't right. This IS the blast furnace where anything goes, so if there is a need for catharsis, it is right and proper to post up thoughts here, especially given the former position of the banned poster.

Shutting down threads only prolongs the inevitable. Everyone (especially those who were involved in the big BF thread that started all this) is going to eventually talk about it, so why not get it over with?

I kind of agree with you, but at the same time the SF rules state that you must comply with any administrative (or moderators) decisions. So I say, they have spoken.

If you feel the need to discuss the departed poster, I think that can be accomplished via a PM. I'd just as soon forget about it and move on. Just my two cents.

Maybe you'd be right, but this was an ex-Mod, and someone who posted almost 8,000 times. It's a little Orwellian to just pretend that the guy never existed.

His posts are still visible, so it would be difficult to forget that he existed. I just believe in letting sleeping dogs lay and besides - don't you think we'd be lowering ourselves a notch or two by resorting to slicing and dicing a person who isn't here any longer? I think we are all above that, quite frankly.

I'll have 2 beers, please. Molson Canadian in the bottle.

HTG - I am posted out on the issue of the recently departed but FWIW I would be interested in reading what anyone else has to say on the equivalent of Don Imus doing nothing much different than he had done for years but finally blowing himself up.

Default Re: I respectfully disagree.

this may seem to be the perfect opportunity for tons of posters to step up and bash a banned member (especially with a thread placed in the blast furnace).

i would suggest that anyone only say what they would say if that banned member were still here to reply or defend oneself.

this is no time for people to suddenly grow a pair and crawl out of the woodwork (and i say this to the board as a whole, not anyone who has posted in this thread) cause i too, think it is a discussion worthy topic.

litp was a long time member who made {attempted to make} his own contributions to the board.

a healthy discussion is fine, but htg may be right. a healthy discussion may only be found in the confines of a PM.

we'll see. my views are pretty clear and are views that have been posted in the open, and on the up and up. im not about kicking someone while they are down and/or out. i dont like to see any active member banned (even hardworm) but definitely understand when someone must sleep in the bed they made..

i dont care about myself, but i definitely dont like seeing random shots taken at our individual members (whether i "cyber-know" you or not) or our board as a whole.

the thread in question that led to a member getting himself banned was a personal attack against anybody who happened to click on the link and read it. it was dealt with as such.
