Has Hect been banned for long enough?

Posted by: russian_metaphor_man

Apparently hect was banned for slandering some users 3 months ago, has he served his time should he be allowed back?

  • Yes, he has been banned for long enough he should be allowed back

  • No, his attacks were outrageous and he should be permanently banned

  • From what I see, he doesn't do a lot that's actually detrimental, disrespectful, or against the ToS. I don't believe "whining about censorship" is a good enough reason to ban him. He has a valid point. If you disagree then that's kind of the point of this website, have a debate...

  • Forget the attacks. He came back to whine about "censorship" SEVERAL TIMES... While continuing the slander, I believe. Apparently, he thinks that airmax, PetersSmith, and I (Yes, me, a non-mod, made it among the "greats" in his mind.) are the axis of evil or something. In all honestly, if we're trying to be evil, I'm doing all the work.

  • Trolling should result in a permanent ban from the internet.

You clearly aren't aware of his eight or so iterations.

Seems like he complains about some things then people complain about him, lol. It's an infinite loop.

I think he has moved on. There are plenty of other forums out there.

@Mister_Man He outright accused the mods of corruption, spammed polls with "Freedom of Speech means free speech for all", called for a revolution on DDO, and when he got banned, he came back and began attacking the mods without evidence. In short, he was anti-censorship, but made a pretty good case for it.

I would also like to mention that hect HAS been permanently banned for obvious reasons.

@forTheLulz - And that warrants a ban? You're saying you ban someone because they're accusing you of being anti-freedom of speech? That kind of makes his point for him, doesn't it? I can understand temporarily banning him for spamming bullsh*t polls, however (from what I saw of him) he did accuse the mods of corruption (and hey, he has somewhat of a point, not to a great extent, but come on), and I've seen many members call for "revolutions" (whether jokingly or serious). I'm unaware of these baseless attacks he made on the mods though. It would be nice if the population of DDO knew why someone was permanently banned, like if a ban log was made for each member who was banned. Kind of one of those "ensure the happiness of the community" kind of things.

@Mister_Man If it were only that, yeah, I'd be right there with you. But when he slings accusations of "fascism" at people (Incidentally, we both created polls about the thing, with UtherPenguin and I forming a pro-mod "fascist army" in response to his "army to topple the mods") on top of his spamming when he was about to lose a debate with Imabench, followed by him coming back after receiving the banhammer, and then forming "you_have_been_censored" as a sock puppet, and after that, calling PetersSmith a few unflattering names, airmax a despot, me a dictator (And that's how I lost my virginity!), and the "DDO elite" (of which I am an aspiring member) of being outright criminals. A few of his forum posts are still around, on top of the odd polls that didn't get baleeted. In short, the guy had no idea how things are run around here, refused to learn, and had no concept of the Terms of Use, which he had agreed to abide by to use the site at all. Basically, this guy was a tumor on DDO, and was excised with extreme prejudice. Also, his "censorship" polls were directed at those powerless to do anything about them, so it was wasted effort anyway.
