Omtatsat banned

Why did Omtatsat get banned?

His recent posts were not worse than usual. Is there a specific reason?

Let's put it this way: Do you have a specific reasoning why he should not have been banned again?

Re: Omtatsat banned

I must admit that he was pain in the ass sometimes but not worse than some of us.

I sincerely hope that it’s only temporary ban and he will be redeemed soon

He'll be back on the 01.07.2019. I did not know that you can get banned on this forum. Some of his posts are not quite "politically correct", but I thought you are allowed to express your own opinion on this forum.

I haven’t seen anything from him today that seems ban worthy so the ban does seem a little odd.

Most of his posts are idiotic but no worse than a lot of other people.

Given that his usual behaviour got him banned before I'd say the reason is consequent behaviour from the mods

Maybe the overzealous mod wants to go on holidays and thus he’s doing his job ahead of time

I disagree.

He created many, many threads, without the slightest intention of moderating them.

If you throw a controversial headline into the EF Forum, then you should be prepared that you're in a position to either stand-by your viewpoint, or moderate the thread so that others have a good opportunity to provide theirs - on a fair and reasonable level.

This guy just took random news headliners, and threw it into the forum. He provided no follow-up, except to provide ridiculous comments, groans or pathetic comments.

I doubt that he's ever issued a "thanks" in his EF life (could check, but can't be bothered).

He has been on almost banned status since decades.

One has to ask who keeps him at EF life really, because so many others are banned with less.

IMHO, he starts threads on controversial topics and spreads his vitriol in a manner of an innocent house troll. As long as you feed the troll, you will be part of his feeding habits. One is not supposed to take it personal and get offended for no reason.

The EF supposed to be a forum to express one’s liberal views however atrocious and controversial they might sound to the others.

Personally, I never felt offended by our banned member and see no reason he is not entitled to his own opinions.

There is also ignore option left.

I checked. He has 'Thanked' on this thread and was pretty helpful in answering the OP's question.

There are lots of people on here who 'stalk' other people or put passive-aggressive remarks for every post people make. None of them are banned.

When has Omtatsat ever made it viciously personal?

Re: Omtatsat banned

Maybe the offending posts got deleted at the time of the ban?

Would make sense if someone took exception to them and they were particularly spicy

He, like anyone else, gets groans and thanks from me.

Albeit, more groans than thanks.

I agree. His posts are generally terrible but also highly amusing to read when having a short break.

Not being able to read Omtatsat’s posts for a month is like skipping an interesting episodes of The Walking Dead

Absolutely. I had many wtf moments when I read some of his posts, but frankly I have been reading much more offensive comments on this forum, and coming from people I would have thought they knew better....he's actually funny sometimes, or at least I'm easily amused.
