    Maybe this board has outlived its usefulness. The desire to ban or spider hole to shut actual Wake people up seems contrary to the boardís founding purpose. Getting rid of non-Wake people or obvious trolls by spider holing is one thing (idiots like kanhoji shouldíve just been banned from the get go). But even if you donít like what he says or how he says it, Rj is one of us and there arenít that many of us Wake fans to start with. Iíve been reading the Wake boards for 25 years and I donít understand why some people canít just take him for who he is.

    What I did towards Strickland is absolutely my fault. I'm not disputing that at all.

    However, we do have proof that there haven't been any problems since they left.

    So, on both counts, there's proof I am changing.

    You disputed it until you realized that you might get banned. You are still blaming them. You havenít changed. Itís been 2 days.
    Letís get this done!

    It's not about the person, it's about the action. In my opinion, this is a community that should not tolerate rhetoric like "You are the kind of Jew who creates Nazis. You would turn in your fellow concentration camp prisoners for a morsel of food". In my opinion, that post deserved a ban. It's pretty fucked up that until I drew more attention to it 6 weeks later, rj did not delete the post, or even edit it to take out that line. He did not apologize until I drew attention to it. His only apology prior to that was "I'm sorry you all had to see that"

    The concept of a kanoji thread is basically equivalent to a lifetime ban. That's not participation and is a continuing, public insult.

    There have been no issues for days.

    Days.

    Literally dozens of hours.

    Discuss Wake Forest Athletics. Freely.

    If this is the purpose of this board, a member is required to take the good and the bad. From everyone. Much of what appears on on this board is offensive to someone. All too frequently, I cringe at the level of vitriol expressed. It's unnecessary but it is tolerated. Personally, I try to adhere to a policy of never typing something I would be unwilling to say in person. I'm reasonably certain that isn't the policy of all who participate on the board.

    Regarding RJKarl, it takes two to make a fight. In his case there are plenty of folks willing to do so. It's not unusual to read pages of criticism and vitriol about him without his participation. Good luck drawing a line regarding toleration. Better luck enforcing it fairly.

    Just an opinion.

    Stop self congratulating yourself and it **might** mean something.

    Because right now it only looks like you've "changed" to congratulate yourself on "changing" and proclaimed that you've "changed"

    It hasn't even been a week yet and you're out here tooting your own horn. That shows that you don't get it. And most likely never will.

    This. We are free to talk about Wake sports without fear of retribution but that shouldnít apply to how we talk about each other.

    The post in question was offensive. No argument.

    The wording in your post could be regarded as offensive by some people. You're free to use it on this board.

    Hate speech directed at another poster referencing a religious genocide is kind of in a different category than the word ďfuckĒ

    That would be my perspective as well.

    The problem for the moderators is in the defining of "categories of offensive" on an board that espouses freedom of discussion.

    I donít think itís really a big problem. This isnít Facebook or twitter. This board is small enough that you can go case by case when thing are really close to the line. And in this case itís pretty clear that the post was offensive enough to warrant a ban.

    If you have actually paid attention, which I'm not sure you have, you would have seen I haven't been out there about your "short ban". What I have opposed is a perma-ban , a month ban or Kanhoji treatment. I've said the absurdity of the ban about Junebug should be taken into consideration as well.

    Yes, the fact that your comment to Strick came on the heels of you threatening me IRL should absolutely be taken into consideration. Youíre completely unhinged, and you should be be banned or limited to your own thread where you can threaten / offend people only if they choose to come visit you. Your posts over the past few days have just confirmed the level of crazy youíve reached. You arenít fit to be a member of the Wake Forest community.

    This is where you reveal you arenít capable of change. The powers that be concluded that what you did to me was worthy of a ban. You disagree, so you double down, without realizing that doing so is just thumbing your nose at the people who have the power to ban you again. A normal person in your shoes would lay low and try not to raise the profile of past sins. But you arenít capable of taking the high road, even when your fate on this board is dependent on it. Load the gun, point it at your foot, and shoot. Over and over and over. You just arenít capable of change.
