@blank has had a long history of disagreeing with the staff here at StP, and making their opinions well known on the forums and in the discord chat.

I don't have a problem with that. What I have a problem with is their complete inability to let a dead horse lie, and instead keep beating it at every available opportunity. After a few months it gets pretty old hearing the same arguments over topics that were settled a long time ago. At a certain point it really does become a kind of trolling, since it almost never brings up anything productive and is a complete waste of everyone's time.

I had a chat with @blank today in the discord (attached to this post as an pdf document) to reach out and see if we could settle this without resorting to a ban, but alas, they could not put their opinions on the matter with fevs aside and stop posting passive-agressive bullshit in threads no one asked for their opinions on.

Clearly not interested in participating in a meaningful way on StP, I decided it was time to ban their account.

Damn, you went back and forth with him a LOT longer than I would have in your position. You got more patience than I do.

It's kind of like inviting someone in to your home and they just want to keep arguing for the sake of arguing (and about bigotry at that). I mean, you can disagree with me about shit....that's fine, it's gonna happen. But if all you want to do is go around in circles arguing and stirring the pot the whole day, after repeatedly being asked to just drop it and change the subject.......well, I probably wouldn't invite your ass back to my house again. just sayin

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
