SpyderPB819, is unbanned after posting porn

I think that a mod has made a mistake the user SpyderPB819 is unbanned after posting pornography on this website.

SpyderPB8
1907-17-2008
N/A
Porn, also asked for it.
Never

(taken form the bannage log viewer)

I'm a user that reported his post (or I think I did), and don't really approve of this behavior, I"m going to assume this is a misunderstanding on why he is unbanned.

(I frequent the IOT so I know the back story behind the whole mess)

Thanks for the concern. It wasn't a mistake. He did ask to be banned and then posted something to get himself banned. ASM comes with a one time use unban which he asked to use once he came to his senses. That unban is not automatic. It has to be reviewed and the difficult ones, like this one, are discussed. We don't approve of what he did at all, but we are giving him another chance.

He has apologized more than once and we're keeping a close watch on him. If you see him break any of our rules, please report him.

I still think thats is ridiculous.

Have you not permed people for hot linking a picture? Then the picture changes to porn, but they still get a perm, and don't even allow them to come back. I do not think that this is not a wise choice by the staff, because what is to stop him from having another "I"m worthless" episode, and posting porn again if you just slap him on the wrist, and not on the ***.

We understand your concerns. We did discuss this before unbanning him, and it wasn't a simple or easy decision.

To answer one of your questions, if he does it again he will be banned and won't have another chance to use his unban as he will have used it once.

As an ASM member he has the privilege of one unban request. Each unban request is individually evaluated and discussed by the senior mod staff.

Most people who post porn and get banned are NOT ASM, and aren't eligible for a second chance in the first place.

It is extremely rare (I believe this is the only occasion ever) where someone who posted porn would be unbanned. As you know there are other circumstances involved and we've taken all of them into account.

On a personal note I know where he is coming from, and the difficulties he is facing right now. I can genuinely say that paintball saved my life. My other username, and nickname "Manike" comes (in part) from dark times in my life and for 3 years I was a manic depressive. It's not an easy situation and the world of paintball, and support of my peers meant more than I can type in words into this small screen.

The paintball community and people in this sport are how I got through. In difficult times like these I hope we as a community can be as supportive and help him as many people did for me all those years ago.

We obviously have or differences, and the people with blue text don't agree.

Thanks for listening anyways guys.

Side note to simon:
I remember one guy who hotlinked a picture, the picture changed to goatse, and he got unbanned cause he saw the other picture on his screen, when some one told him via PM it wasn't the picture, he deleted it
