The way I see it, it was kind of like the days when he would push the envelope with his racism and personal attacks - he had to know what the ultimate payoff would be, BUT, that's part of his schtick. He knew it was coming sooner or later. Them's the rules.
If you or I were to do the same thing, either here, in the Media Center, or the lounge, we'd get the exact same treatment. Any of us would.
You're thick headed. I told you why he was bumping threads. He had two legitimate reasons for bumping them. First, he was researching penchief posts because he and penchief had gotten into it. And second, since he isn't allowed to start new threads for whatever reason, he was posting new items in relevant old threads. He wasn't bumping threads and saying "bump" or "Peyton Manning!". He was bumping them for a purpose. You and I wouldn't get banned for that.
He only mentioned not being able to start threads when people accused him of randomly bumping threads, so the idea that he was doing it as a protest is kind of crazy. You're making assumptions because you don't know what was going on and because you apparently ignored my explanations. Unfortunately, this is what our mods do too. They don't bother to do investigate what's really going on, they just make assumptions and sometimes it leads them to bad decisions like this.
Why do these bumps bother you so much? No one held a gun to your head and forced you to stick around and keep them going. It makes it seem like your cheerleading for this ban is more about the person than the rule.
