Re: News & Discussion Thread - Part 1
Just to be clear here: Alexei has been given multiple warnings and infractions in other sections of this forum besides this one (and not by me, no matter how me liked to claim so), and a probation. He was given plenty of chances to improve his attitude towards other posters, but decided not to do so.
Maybe you didn't think he was "that bad", but we have a ton of reports from members of this forum - again, not just from this section, and not from mods - that say otherwise.
He didn't get infracted, warned, or banned because of his opinion. It was his complete inability (again, not just on this forum) to deal with an opinion besides his own without having a total breakdown during which he would incessantly insult others, and continue doing it after repeatedly being told to stop. So, enough was enough.
We have rules here. Foul language is not permitted, so if you put one here (whether it was directed at someone or not), you're going to get infracted for it. That's how it goes.
Opinions are more than welcome. But if you can't agree to disagree with someone without resorting to insults and nastiness, and continue to do it after being told to stop, then you're going to face the consequences for it. That's just how it goes.
If following simple rules aren't your thing, you're welcome to leave.
