So for those not in the know, which is most likely all of you (because the mods sure as hell aren't going to inform anybody) Christopher Wallace Criminology, or as you all know him, Chris Crime, has been banned from GR. Quite possibly forever. And why? Was he posting any pornography? Maybe a thread about being involved in a gangbang? Why no, he just pushed Lethean's buttons and the powers that be decided someone who's been around here for over 10 years doesn't deserve to let off some steam so they banned his ass. So how did this all begin you ask? Well BBK was going on about some gangbang he was involved in. And the rest of GR, except maybe Ugh and Madster, knew that BBK was most likely full of himself. So I decided to have fun with this since nothing else was really going on in GR and made a thread poking fun at BBK. A mod (probably Longo) had lost his sense of humour and deleted the thread I made. So after feeling confused and wondering what was so wrong about poking fun at someone who was breaking the rules on GR, I could only come up with one solution; power trip! Chris Crime caught wind and decided to poke fun at Lethean some more. Not sure if he knew that it was Longo who deleted my thread but we've both always been firmly against mods who get a little power hungry and delete threads simply because they don't agree with it. Are the mods a democracy? Or do they all just follow Longo's word? Longo, who told us all that Lethean was the Wonder Woman of Covert Ops now has a problem with someone else poking fun at him. Feels more like a Do as I say, not as I do :roll: So Chris made a humorous thread about Lethean and I used it to also make fun of BBK But oh no! We can't have that now, can we? So it was deleted. Chris retaliated by posting the thread again and it was deleted, and so on and so on. Finally he was banned. Chris was blowing off some steam and when you try to shut someone up who is venting they're obviously going to get upset and continue to post what they want. Chris and I have always been on the edge with the powers that be, but lately I thought things were at a calm stand still. The current group of mods "understood" that we're not out to bring down GR, just the opposite, we like to liven it up. We don't post idiotic threads about being involved in gangbangs, we just joke around. Even if it does feel too cynical at times, it's still important to be able to laugh at yourself once in awhile. This is something that the likes of TNO could never understand. TNO, a man whose ego was too large to fit inside the internets and micro-managed the forum and even his fellow moderators. I thought those days were long gone... Even if you disagree with his actions, does Chris honestly deserve to be perma-banned from GR just for making Lethean cry into his MMA gloves and for questioning Longo's ego? Chris has been a staple at GR longer than most of you, longer than most of our current mods. He's won a plethora of GR awards in the past and I've enjoyed having his company on this site through the good times and the bad. He caused a bit of stress for the mods but so what? Haven't we all at some point? You can't expect everyone to be as perfect as Lethean or Longo. Yes we know guys, everyone else is wrong and you are always right. GR is a family, and Chris is as much a part of our family as any of you!
