Some of you may have noticed that Colonol Dekker has been banned.  He posted a series of disgusting images in the "Post your pic" thread yesterday.  The less said, the better.  Suffice it to say that it was a flagrant and unapologetic violation of the forum rules, and has been dealt with accordingly.  He has been issued a permanent, universal ban, and is no longer welcome at Hard Light Productions.

While we try to provide a free (in both senses of the word) and open forum for discussion here, we have rules that must be followed.  For the most part, they are common-law rules and are not written down, but we have tried to establish guidelines to let people know what we expect of them.  These guidelines have been posted in a sticky thread for several months now and can be viewed at any time.  We have room for a wide variety of behaviors and opinions here, and all we ask is that you use a little common sense.

Hopefully, Colonol Dekker will serve as an example so that these kinds of bannings can be minimized.  We have not had to ban someone for pornography or shock images for several months now, but if the line is crossed, the rules will be enforced.

This thread will remain open for discussion of the circumstances surrounding the banning or of the rules themselves.  If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to post.

I suppose giving those not present at the time a vague idea of what Dekker posted would be out of the question?

Again, the less said, the better.  However...
Spoiler:
He posted four images: the goatse image, something with maggots crawling out of a body part, a gay threesome, and someone squirting diarrhea into their own face.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, don't try looking it up.

Okaaaay, I totally understand the 'less said the better'. I'm now somewhat wishing I hadn't asked... urgh.

 
Something always struck me as a bit.... odd about him. Granted, I made the FS-number-that-comes-after-2 thread, but come on. Posting goatse and tubgirl on one of the best forums around? I mean, what did he think would happen? Oh well, I won't miss him.

wow. that sucks, but I guess he wasn't thinking straight. Anyway, he was mostly an interesting guy, so again, too bad. But we really don't need tubgirl and goatse, it's gross.

To be honest, I always thought he'd do something like this sometime. I've seen others like him (and much much worse) on threads of less effecient MODing. Can you believe the only rules on this one forum are: no posting redundant threads? Man, that was a horrible time when I thought all forums were like that.

Well, other forums suffer from more abuse too. Like, www.neowin.net for example, with 200,000 members, all 12 to 15 year old geeky males interested in beta's of vista and such, and you really have to have like a team of 50 mods on a site like that. Hard light is nice and chill which is nice and there's no unpleasant admins or mods here, everyone is cool.

Heh, the guy did seem to be a little crazy in general. He actually used to be a normal person in the VBB days, as far as I can remember.

Why was Nuke monkeyed, by the way? (although it evidently didn't have any effect)

Because he went on a drunk posting spree apparently.

I don't like Nuke's musical taste, but he sure has some amazing models, it's too bad no one has used them in a campaign yet...

Now now guys, this is a heads up on why he was banned. It's not to ***** about him now that he is banned. It's a shame he had to do what he did but we can't overlook it - the rules are there for all to see on the matter.

On the subject of Nuke: I was the one who monkeyed him and it was indeed because he was spamming whilst apparently drunk. I know people get drunk and sometimes come along and post from time to time - and it can be funny - but there's no call for spamming and being drunk is no excuse. He'll be unmonkeyed soon enough and hopefully will have sobered up :)

Btw, Goober, do you know how he was still able to post?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Well we could take the other approach and not keep you people up to date, if you'd like? :)

I like Goober... Really. He's funny, if not scary at times.

It's a shame, I rather liked CD but his actions here were inexcusable, I saw the post and was really repulsed by it, I expected better from him. This banning was justified although I will miss his sense of humour!
