Well, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure ganging up on a guy will make him care less about the content of his posts and make him become even more of a douche since it doesn't look like anyone likes him already. He was Banned, got pissed, and pissed other people off. He did his time, comes back, and everyones pushing him BACK into the behaviour that they disliked so much. That's obviously going to cause even bigger problems and all likelyness a perma-Ban on a guy who deosn't fully deserve it. The first thing you guys do when he gets back is say you're no longer friends and Image fail. What type of community is that. Trekster got the idea right, maybe some of you to should too.
And like I said, he's 14. He's obviously going to be immature. That's why you guide him and show him the ropes about proper online etiquete. You don't further provoke him.
I'm 14. And I haven't been sent to the reading room on 3 (?) separate occasions. Trust me; HBL treats Wiihacks like a joke and could care less what other people say to him. So we make fun of him :)
Well, do you know any 14 year olds who do crazy shit for attention? Maybe some friends or a guy at your school? Well, that's the type of person HBL is and it's not really his fault. It's called puberty-that thing where your body goes through funny changes and the hormones make you do funny things. He can't help it and its most likely there will be period in your life where you will be acting similarly to HBL. It's a part of growing up and he, nor you if and when it happens, should be segregated for it. It's like not talking to the clumsy kid with the gross acne who says stupid shit - sure he's an asshole now, but in a couple years he'll cool down, mature, and be ready to be a fully functional member of society. Until then, give him a nughe here and there when he needs to step into line, but don't treat him like a monster. That'll just make him even more of an asshole since no one likes him to begin with, like I said previously. SO I say let by gones be by gones and see if the 3rd time is the charm. Sure, judging b the pattern he'll do it again, but it's even more likely to occur if everyone teams up against him since he'll eventually have to lash out at someone. When that happens, some of you might be like "I told you so", but if you think you had nothing to do with it happening, then your sadly mistaken.
Just...never mind >_>
This is getting ridiculous.
god guys!! im 14 too! half the staff here is that age! yet we are still mature enough to be staff. and you are not. you dont get what goes on around here.
we call him an asshole, because he IS an asshole. and ill laugh my ass off when he matures.
No theta ya dud, modderman, fatal, myself, are all older
I think the same is for anthrotic, chrischown etc
I think only zero and wwlth are the young noobs in staff XD
Well, If you gave him a chance, maybe he would. You guys have made it plenty obvious how you feel about him and obviously hating him isn't doing anything constructive. We don't lock up people for life for messing up every once in a while. We help them realise what they did is wrong and try to make them fully functioning members when they're allowed to re-join. The same thing here, he's done his time and now it's time for a fresh start. If you force a Con back into back habits, there's a high chance he'll redo wht he's done in the past, but if you let him prove he can do the right thing(s), then it shows tha he has matured as a person and can be a good guy. I mean, why not just perma-ban everyone who messes up if you think they'll do something wrong again? I'm pretty sure it's because you hope that some time to reflect will do them good and when they return they will learn from their mistakes.
See, this proves my point about maturity and growning up. The only person who has said anything nice to HBL isn't 14. Maybe when you guys you can behave more civilized like trekster and accept people back with open arms instead staring a flaming thread and thus restarting a cyclic pattern, you'll understand what 'm talking about.
