Ooo a Cad Cad and suineg suineg power fight?
Not at all, he obviously has all the power. I feel like he's just a little worked up right now though and will reconsider tomorrow. He can obviously unban them again if he feels like it. But, I think what he's looking for here is a second opinion or for someone to tell him he's wrong and I don't mind doing that.

I really am not worked up but it's a good idea to go through the motion of a 24 hour moratorium just in case.

I looked at it rationally. Picasso3 is trying to get a ban, he has to be trying at this point. So I did it, dispassionately.

I then thought, why am I banning him though? So I presented the option to Soygen Soygen to talk me out of it. He made a decent argument that just because they are annoying doesn't mean they should be banned. Well if Picasso3 should be free the other ones should as well, it's practically carbon copies just different personal crusades for each of them. We have let @XLC Orr post for months despite knowing he was Tanoomba. We let anyone back in after being banned as long as they don't make it obvious who they were before the ban.

So why not unban them all? Let them hang themselves again if it comes to that, or maybe they won't. Maybe I was wrong before.

Do we really know this XLC dude is Tanoomba or just based on post style, etc? I'm honestly asking.

a. intentionally disrupting threads with shitty, stale, semantic arguments is a good enough reason for moderation. If we can't get fucking retards to not respond to them, then remove them. I'm ok with that. I'm not ok with removing them based on having a dumb opinion, but if their dumb opinion dominates the thread to the point that the thread is useless, then action can be taken. I don't really know about Picasso since I haven't been reading politics lately but he's been pretty dumb in the past.

b. I didn't know XLC Orr was Tanoomba. Fuck that cunt.

c. I don't think you were wrong before. The list of banned idiots are truly all fucking useless idiots who deserve it.

I am sure that when he is ubanned tomorrow he will claim that was purely coincidental, keep posting on the XLC account for a while and then all of a sudden bring back his Tanoomba account like he was doing his monthly check to see if unbanned.
Regardless of whether or not tanoomba is allowed to post, the alt account should remain banned.
