He said over on that other site he posts on now that he was banned for posting PMs. If so, that’s a pretty good rule that was broken.

He did do this, yes


His account was hacked

Weird that you'd bring that into this

Not weird if he used this place to help cope


I have zero clue about wtf is going on, so I can only react to commentary based on my observations. So here goes....

Using RM to cope is the worst thing anybody could ever do. You’re only setting yourself up for a total fucking disaster.

Weirdos like Balki use strange, subversive methods of coping, which should be welcomed here.

I couldn't care about the threads he creates, I don't go in those.

Just please respect the long term, congregational threads. Even better, stay out of them. Cheers.

I hate this controversy

Does ny dislike of Balki's awful posting outweigh my dislike of our mod team's inconsistency, selective overmodding, and total lack of transparency?

Need to think about this

Balki was banned for repeat and multiple violations of the community standards of RM. This was after several warnings and temporary bans.

It was a team decision via the mod forum to make his ban permanent.

I am at peace

somehow, i'm still troubled

I think it should be seriously considered how there is now a Balki-size hole in RM that will indubitably, inevitably be filled by a reincarnation of the 'one', or a second account, or a current RMer. Subversion, chaos, disorder must counter weigh this mostly unimaginative, dull culture, and you can't ban Him.

1) Balki deserved punishment for posting PMs, a clear rules violation.
2) The infraction did not rise to the level of a permanent ban.
3) The severity was almost certainly increased because of the distaste for the Balki account's posting style by both the board's RealTalk contingent and the mods.
4) There exist means at the account level for limiting one's exposure to the Balki account's content, should one desire to so exercise them.
5) The mods clearly have little compunction about putting their inconsistency, incompetence, and hypocrisy on display for all to see.

I propose the following :

1. Immediate reinstatement for Balki

2. Tree be made moderator of Balki

3. Crackpot is fired...
