I just can't understand how being banned from this forum could possibly make someone mad to that degree. It's not a new idea of kids being pissed off at being banned but when a possible death threat, even when it's not serious, enters the mix it just says to me that these people are worked up the point where they're not thinking before they type.
I definately agree. Back in the days, when I was banned a fair bit (or, a lot of times as any mod will see in the logs and such) there could have been times when I tutted at the screen or something, in very quiet frustration, which would've been largely the result of one of those posting-in-a-spam-thread bans where I didn't really know what defined a spam thread. That would be it though really.
Most of the time, I brought it upon myself though being an idiot, and just spamming or whatever. That's no fun, when it wasn't even humourous in my cases. Oh well, these are better days... I hope ;)
I did feel sorry (or something better, words have left me) for Rucklo specifically though the other day, when some guy posted a thread that Rucklo locked and gave a specific lock message on what to with it. The guy just goes ahead and acts like an arse in a new thread. I mean, to enjoy posting here, you have to be not banned, so when a mod is being nice to you, you should be taking it on board, not acting like you've got jerk rights. I'm just ranting because it annoyed me a little. Ah, I guess the mods put up with that shit alot anyway.
I've said it before: I wish bigbadron was still around. I remember his responses to "death threats" or any other sort of threat being quite funny.
