I was considering an annual pardon of a banned member a few years ago but was correctly talked out of it. I don't have much sympathy for anyone who can't behave themselves anyway.

I was an admin on a forum where we incorporated a parole system (I thought it was a bad idea). As it turns out, it basically just reinforced and reminded us why that person was banned to begin with. Every now and then one person would actually be normal and civil, but typically those cases were more like someone got banned on a BS technicality or they actually have changed. I think we had a 1-year or 6-month minimum before the person was allowed to try to be a parolee....usually it was rather obvious from the get go whether or not the person wasn't still a complete retard.

Actually, for what it's worth, Mickey hasn't drank in a long time (at least 6 months, maybe more?) and has been civil for the most part, since he's quit drinking. I would be in favor of allowing MC back on WOV, although I can see why admins may not want him back.

I'm not passing messages from a banned member, just sayin'.

If he ever apologies for the death threat he made against me, I'll consider it.

Was he drunk at that particular moment?

Was this Buzz?

I know he may have poked the bear one time too many, but perhaps it was just a youthful indiscretion?


Aside from the uncharacteristic "bear-poking" there at the end, it seemed like ol' Buzz kept things pretty lively around here!
You serious, Clark?

Probably, but being drunk is not an excuse in my book. People are responsible for their actions, whether drunk or sober.
