    So, typical. Rather than dealing with the issue raised, i.e. the increasing descent of the boards into a quagmire of phoney monotonous woke bullshit, which is only made worse by banning posters, you go for some half-hearted effort at cheap smears.

    your premise is just wrong

    boards that are basically unmoderated are terrible, terrible places to interact. the evidence is all over the internet

    you are confusing moderating and permanent banning

    I spent a long time moderating prior versions of this and other message boards. I completely get how hard and thankless it is. And I know nothing about RJK taking his fight to the real world. That's not OK.

    But I also know that there are people here who have lost the ability to ignore things that are better addressed by silence, and there are others who actively bait RJK. Hell, I've done it in the past. WFU sports is not the most exciting space (though Forbes may finally change that some) and internet spats do spice things up a little (I remember fighting all the time with Pilchard, one of my all-time favorite posters, under our prior board names).

    In other words, RJK is a problem, for sure. But he's not the only problem. People on (semi) anonymous message boards can channel their inner asshole. Some folks here have fallen deeply into that.

    I'm not advocating anything. I guess I'm saying this situation in complicated, like much of life.

    Will you be returning RJís donation?

    I think some of it is generational too. I was personally raised as kind of a free range kid. So I have frequently gotten into it with people on these here message boards. But also understand that it's kind of the rules of the jungle so I really don't expect somebody to be banned or disciplined for giving it back to me.

    oh please

    I think the fact that a significant chunk of the threads on District 13 being about RJ + everything else the mods already mentioned demonstrate that any action they deemed necessary was pretty clearly earned over the years.

    I don't know what this weird phasing means either, but I'm pretty sure the modteam didn't ban him for "phoney monotonous woke bullshit."
    semi-aquatic like otters be.

    If you think they did, you may want to respond directly to parts of their explanation for banning him instead of couching your anger behind rhetorical phrases.

    You are upset that he plays a victim, he called someone massa, he PMs people (surely not!), he complains, and he said bad things about you to other people? On a sports board?
    Anyone of this unanimous mod team here ever walked into a locker room? Hard to picture.
    Sad, dude. Sad.

    Everyone who has been banned or driven away should be invited and welcomed back. If the board will not stand for vigorous discussion, then it will become increasingly boring, monotonous, and pointless.

    wouldn't have pegged creamy as the type to dabble in virtual performative melodrama, and yet here we are

    Yeah leaving a board because RJ is no longer around, hey guys we probably should leave this bar now that the drunk guy that kept interrupting our conversation has been escorted out.
