Donald Trump is joining EF? That would be entertaining.
Not really, his vocabulary is tiny.

Susie Q , I got unblocked as well ...
Seems a big amnesty has taken place on EF.
That usually happens after a war ends, right?

Hardly.

I don't read all the posts on here. I've no idea of the extent of reported offensive posts that got him banned in the first place.

I assume the mods, between them, make decisions based on posts and especially reported posts.

I was talking about posting styles, Blueangel. It is better to not take things out of context.

Didn't he come back as Full Circle?
Now...the thing is...when the forum members were talking about Full Circle being reincarnation of a banned troll in thread, when he 'joined' EF, you put a like on his response, so can hardly claim ignorance now.

Here is the wikipedia definition of a troll:

In internet slang, a troll is a person who posts inflammatory, insincere, digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses, or manipulating others' perception.

Honestly, I think some of your posts don't stray that far from such a definition. Your posts on coronavirus, cursing et al provide much more useful contributions than banging on continuously about musicchick, V__, mods, and death of a forum. Maybe... get over it?
If you think I meet your wiki definition of a troll, OK, thatís just your opinion man.

Iíve been on this forum for awhile & the people who were demoted without explanation deserve someone to speak up and stand up for them. If that bothers you, maybe get over it? This place was once quite a positive outlet for many who found themselves in new territory and I would like to keep it that way.

It's funny, if you think more of it. One of those mods gave some red rep points here and people can't get over it. He did that to me too moons ago for something I don't even remember.

Back to V___ , one of these days will write bad stuff to any random EFer and back again to ban. So, what was accomplished?

Sadly I think that ship has already sailed.

For what it worth I donít think Omtatstat was all bad, he made some useful posts ( the injection thing being one of them). He just had a tendency to post provocative stuff and make racist/homophobic comments which earned him multiple temporary bans but he never learned from them

Those decisions ought to be made by a mods consensual decision, not members.
ftfy

, Having one mod running around unbanning people without discussion only leads to chaos.

Why do I post "without discussion"? See the quotes below from 3Wishes and FMF.

Unfairly according to whom?
Okay, feel free to start the discussion there. There's not a new thread yet, so I assume you don't have anyone specific in mind at the moment, and you were making a general comment.

Absolutely a general comment, I wanted to wait till mods are functioning as normal as I have no idea if everybody has access at the moment, certainly would want input from the entire team.

Can we get Full Circle and CodPeace unbanned? CodPeace in particular was banned for absolutely nothing at all.

Full Circle as well he didn't deserve his permanent ban.

22yards and Ace1 simply banned him for being vocal in the Covid thread, just like myself

When I opened a thread for his banning it was closed within 30 minutes...

So glad these people aren't mods anymore! They were not moderating they were smothering the forum
