Hmm, as far as I'm concerned the banners and this very discussion thread speak for themselves about who is making a fuss.
It's not so much who the first person was to make a fuss, most of the posters in this forum /are/ making a fuss- /I'm/ making a fuss.
The thing is: "do you honestly think /now/, /this/ issue, is what you should be semanticating over?"

I completely support dokidoki's decision to ban godix because he was technqicually (sp) caught out regardless of the history of BP.
I find it interesting how you see someone being attacked on a personal level as a hypocritical whinner.
I will defend what he did in this case because I do not believe people have the right to be lazy enough to not read that first post and yet still complain at the clearly stated result.
Yes, that's perfectly true.
I will also defend Godix's right to do that.
But BP was right as well (and as much as it pains me to say it) I will defend BP on the grounds that the forum rules were breached unfairly and BP deserved to have its hissy fit in this one particular instance
. Just because BP is a hypocrite and I find it mostly deplorable in almost all of what it does and says (I don't condone yelling and screaming at people trying to help you) doesn't mean they weren't right to turn around and stand up to Godix.
And there I go, repeating myself again
... sorry. ^^;
I think the only reason the comment thread wasn't locked from the get-go was that the mods didn't initially realize what Godix set himself up for. Any one of the people who didn't read the post fully could have turned around and done the exact same thing, and they would still have been right.
Prior transgressions that were objectionable are also not fair to mention because they were incorrectly handled to begin with. You don't "make up for it" by over-reacting later on. What's done is done.
Yes, I agree, Godix and others should have been punished a long time ago as well. Good point. ^^
I don't think this was an overreaction at all. He abused another member on a personal
level (whether he realized or not). As far as I know, the mods might have given him warnings in the past about such actions (and frankly wouldn't surprise me if they had,) and this was his third time strike out.
Godix's comments were not 'that' inflamatory, but they were still inflamatory, and that
, Bash-san is
From my noobie point of view: I would have been really upset that someone could go around saying whatever they wanted to others and get away with it because the mods thought 'oh well, he's been doing it so long we can't punish him now, there'd be no point'.
I think it is perfectly
fair to talk about past transgressions, but you're entittled to your opinion in thinking it's unfair of me; I won't stop you from having an opinion.
I think one of the reasons Godix himself hasn't replied/emailed about this (as I'm sure people would be quoting him if he had) is because he knows he was caught out on this one.
In terms of feedback for the mods, power to you guys! I just wish you caught more people when you did it.
