And Trisagion isn't not here cause of what Shiny posted.
Nonsense. The emails he sent me are proof you don't know what you're talking about. I suspect you also didn't see the OP that Achronos posted which got him banned. Nobody should be subjected to such a torrent of explicit abuse, and nobody's family should be smeared in such a vile way as did Achronos to TheTrisagion's family.
People can claim whatever they want about the reasons for their actions. There is a reason psychologists exist. If people were so good at knowing the causes and conditions for their own actions and how to remedy them, we wouldn't need shrinks, Priests, and the like.
Trisagion has bigger fish to fry than Shiny and for once I am not making a short joke.
Well, actually I am, but I am also making a larger point as well.
This is not to say Shiny didn't deserve what he got, he did as I have said all along. But let's not add to his proper banishment the actions of others, as fortunate as those actions might be. Well adjusted men don't crumple into a ball of self-doubt and announce to a bunch of strangers asking for sympathy cause someone said something bad about their family which 3 people or so saw.
They either exact revenge on the said person, which maybe is Trisagion's long game (in that case props), or they blow it off and move on.
Anyway, the moderators should be thanked for their actions in the speed with which they removed Shiny's content. It is a good example for others here that such behavior will almost no effect and that no one has to live in fear of such action taken against them.
Few boards would have moved with such agility. I believe Cyrillic is to be thanked for the deletion of the material, but perhaps it was another mod. In any case, good show!
I am guessing positive "criticism" of moderator action is OK? As I have trumpted the mods in the past without warning or recourse.
