This thread is just a train wreck, why donsn't everyone agree to disagree and talk about something less divisive like AA admits.
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

While perhaps not ban-worthy, I've got no problem declaring behavior like SUCK's here actionable.  Griefing other posters by repeatedly antagonizing them with unsubstantiated accusations only detracts from the board.  I'd fully support warnings, and maybe eventual bannings after repeated warnings, for this kind of thing.

This.

(also, this type of level-headed commentary is why NPE was nominated in the new mod thread ;D)

Was cliff007 ever banned? I don't think so..and he exhibited that kind of behavior for months and months. The argument in this thread is pretty light, IMO. If people would just ignore each other - I think it would go away. If someone displays a negative, bitter attitude..that should completely be allowed. Regardless of if they get complaints. I think ISUCKATTHISS falls into that category. IIRC, his first post was about being miserable in law school. So..he gets in arguments & displays his negative attitude in his posts. That's ok, right?

You're not paranoid if they really are out to get you?

Anyway, does anyone have anything on the topic of the ban process, as in the future of it as opposed to the past?

Thanks for keeping the convo on track.

I just checked the ban log and that user was never banned.

Well, I'm sure we all remember (posters who have stuck around since last cycle) how he derailed every thread, and was sexually explicit on a regular basis - pretty close to harassment. A quick search of his posts should prove that. There are other examples. I can see a poster like cliff being banned, but PILOFOLO/ISUCKATTHIS, whether or not they're the same person - I fail to see how their negativity/annoyance is worthy of a ban.

I think it's less a matter of culpability in the case of cliff007 and more likely an issue of nobody reporting his antics to the moderators.  If he carried on like you say, he certainly sounds like a prime candidate for the ban log.
