I know for a fact they did not get a suspension because they were still posting right after everything went proof. If all they got was a warning, the same should apply to d2r. The people to whom I'm referring have all had multiple suspensions (and at least one has been banned and then reinstated) so they were on the same thin ice as d2r.

I don't like the idea of bans unless it is something incredibly egregious like scamming or some awful harassment. I agree with long term suspensions for rule violations after multiple violations.

That said, I am not a mod so it means nada.

Like I said , you don't know if/how many warning these people have gotten, nor do you know how long/how many times D2R has been told he was on thin ice. I think the mods keep pretty good tabs on those that get out of control or continuously break the rules. And honestly it's irrelevant how close you think other members are and if they should have already been banned as well. Only the mods know for sure. Clearly Houdini and the other mods warned D2R and he continued anyway.

D2R had a potty mouth.

D2R warned about potty-mouth usage by mods.

D2R banned for having a potty-mouth after warnings given.

D2R allowed back with last warning.

D2R had potty-mouth again despite being warned about said potty-mouth.

D2R got banned again.

D2R is popular among other members here, so people want him back.

D2R broke the rules, but people say "screw the rules, he was popular, bring him back."

For the record, I liked the guy, but the rules are what they are.

I was in the thread he was posting in last night, that got him banned.

He said a rape joke that was not funny apparently.

People freaked out

Someone reported him or a mod saw it

And the hammer struck

Not sure what his signature has to do with his stance on this.

He's defending the banning of d2r for violating forum rules while at the same time violating the forum's no religion rule. Completely hypocritical. Plus it is offensive to many non-Christians.

Lets all defend a previously banned member, who was let back on and now banned again. Yet go after the guy with scripture in his signature. That's the way to do it, rape jokes vs scripture? Lets defend the guy making rape jokes and go after the guy with scripture YAY!

Then report it. And if the mods tell me to remove it I will. Until then I will shed a tear for you.

The forums rule is no Threads with a Religious topic, and that is actually only listed in the off topic section. The only thing it could touch on is, like you said if someone claims they are offended by what is listed in his signature.

Makes me wonder how many people actually read the rules and not just skim and pick and choose what applies to them.

Now you done it. We are about to witness the Passion of Christ right here and now.
