Mikal asked me to inform you all, that he is now perma-banned, so 'everything is resolved,' and to tell you all goodbye.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

This is a regrettably unfortunate way for him to needlessly end his time here...for what? Getting punished?

I'm glad he followed through with his promise. He's at least a man of his word.

I think it is universally acknowledged that Mikal crossed a line and that a temp ban was in order. But, I agree that a temp-ban doesn't necessitate him leaving the site forever.

"for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

He brought a temp-ban on himself with egregious conduct. Then, he literally got himself perma-banned. There is no wording I could use to describe how stupid his actions were in the past several hours, and again - he brought it on himself.

That was his own decision. I suspect he's interested in accruing sympathy, which I'll grant him. It's hard to be banned, and embarrassing. But like the perma-ban instead of the temp-ban, Mikal knowingly and actively chose it.

This site is not your family. At some point everyone moves on. If he wanted too, good for him.

I agree, and I think the site will be calmer for his departure; however, my point was he did not have to chose it. He could've chosen to become a polite and productive member of the site.

What exactly happened? May you give me a short description on what transpired?

I SAY GOOD RIDDANCE. He was only interested in something if it benefitted him. He was selfish, and did things just so he could. I am glad that he won't come back. I swear, he was worse than Raccoon98. At least he was honest about his selfishness.

I understand Mikal's inner anger. But, it was his pursuit for absolute freedom that led to this. No one should have absolute freedom . . . it's not healthy and it's not conducive to life.

There's a dif between freedom and entitlement. He was not for freedom--he was metaphorically crapping on people for saying things he didn't like. But I pretty much agree with your analysis.

Mikal felt that he could say whatever he wanted. Well, he couldn't. Reality bit him in the ***.

Those of us that want to debate and that frequent these kinds of sites are simply going to have to put up with it.
