I was done with this when I saw words to the effect of “you better unfuck yourselves and reopen my thread” in the protest thread. I was surprised the ban hammer didn’t drop or at least probation.
So, it was that fine line thing. Didn't want to ban him for an unorthodox idea. I wanted to accomplish some education of "how" to go about proposing unusual ideas. I don't know if it was clear to you all but I tried to do some education by PM. He was unhappy that I wasn't having the discussion in public. For a commissioned O, he wasn't getting the public / private differences in mentoring.
I appreciate the PMs, etc on the thread as it was developing.
The hammer swung when he combined repeated refusals to present sources with claiming it was a butt-hurted issue. Sigh.
@scott Oldham - thank you, sir!
Ultimately, Thanatorched did get educated. He spoke with DocGKR by phone the morning after he was banned. The indication I got was that a light switch came on during that conversation. IF it did, it was because of Doc's efforts.
