By the way, did anyone bother to tell the Lt. Colonel that he's been reinstated? 

He’s been PM’d. 

Outside of that? Not sure what we can do.

We emailed the account he had on file also.

 

If someone knows his twitter handle can they poke him there?

They made an exception with two guys, not a universal reversal. A poster must reform themselves as a dupe before remotely being considered (which is why the appeals system is a good idea).

 

Unless something happens with the Stoolies, I doubt Tank will come back. We are mere ants in the afterbirth of his internet fame, looking on as the Stoolies push him to an even earlier grave.

 

I’m glad the mods realized their mistake and made the right decision. You guys came to the correct course of action after a brief bit of stumbling, and I know plenty of moderators who wouldn’t do that. Good for you. Hopefully, this will be a good moment for self-reflection as for how to run the community. As long as admiral gets the apology he deserves, I’m good with it.

Yeah...outside of the obvious trolls, the only banning I've ever agreed with was IronChefShark because I felt like he was going to track me down and use my skin as a blanket. All of the other stuff has never bothered me that much and a lot of it seems silly in hindsight. Like, outside of being kind of a dip, why was McCall banned? 

 

The McCall banning was the one that most tangibly improved the boards for the better.  I absolutely hated seeing that he had entered a thread that I was interested in  His banning was the first one that I felt actually made this place more calm and civil.  Besides his inability to communicate without being confrontational, his not-so-veiled racism was on display in a lot of his posts, and he was one of the reasons I gave up on the concepts forum.

 

The McCall banning was certainly what was "best for business."

Thanks for the kind words to those who had them, sorry we all had such a weird day. I'm probably gonna keep a low profile for a few days, though; I have a game show to try out for.

Bad behavior results in a ban.

A banned member must reform themselves as a dupe account before being considered for reinstatement.

Opening a dupe account results in a ban.

I would have been thoroughly, thoroughly disappointed had you been banned and then made it onto Jeopardy!.

 

Disappointed that you were banned, not because you made it to J!. I've been trying for years but either shart the bed or forget to take the test. Good luck!

Now I can tell you in person - I got a real kick out of you using "The Lt. Brigadier General" as the screen name for your short-lived post ban account. Thanks for that.

That's the lamest CSI: Miami meme I've ever seen.

 

then it's a good thing it wasn't a CSI: Miami meme then. 

 

That's sunglasses and a pun. I didn't do either.

I just noticed this as I was going to like a response from a (I think) suspended member.  This used to be possible so maybe the change should be named after BucFan, who like about 1,000 Tank posts after his ban.  

 

To be fair, they were all really good, quality posts. I was just showing my genuine appreciation for them.

It was a joke, friend.

What I understood was Admiral, CRichardson were banned and reinstated and Tank was reinstated. My track record could be a bit off. But that's what I got from reading the last page or two.
