To clarify (and I wasn't in the discussion abt the ban because some chucklehead was in the store playing blink 182) from what I can tell the ban wasn't about the bitch comment but thx to the (imo inappropriate) irl zinging he did in that thread (since deleted)

xp ok, didn't see that, that's a bad look

just sort of felt bad for him after all the (afaict unsubstatiated) shit that was being thrown at him following that comment and him not being able to defend himself. but irl attacks like that aren't cool

They are, but the name change from SB to FP sucked a lot of the rhetorical heat out of their use, and hitting the button happens a lot less often now. Temp or perma bans have always been available by mod discretion, even when SB was in play.

The real naming of Morbs happened in response to him using my last name in a snotty, dismissive post; I was responding in kind.

DARING PRINCESS (DJP), Thursday, 6 September 2012 12:24 (six years ago) Permalink

DJP, your last name's still in that thread too, whereas morbs was redacted, in case you would want to get someone to take care of that.

I don't care that much, it was in my display name for years. The real point is that I was not the first person to play the "real name when shit gets heated" card; I also think that if dude is going to spend 90% of his time on that thread saying hateful content-free shit, he should occasionally have his name tied to it but that's just me.

yeah but as you pretty much just said, using his name is different, so it was a conscious, provocative escalation on your part. this was kind of my implicit point, that morbs, not being so buddy-buddy with some of the mods, might not be getting equal treatment.

FWIW, Morbs has posted links to his professional work on ILX, so his true identity isn't exactly a state secret. That said, people wielding govt. names like a weapon is NAGL.

Well, that sure learned me! The ostensible rumored reason for my ban (there's no way to know, of course, since the Star Chamber Log lists no reasons) makes even less sense than the M. Obama one.
