GeriantIsMyHero has been banned for six months for accumulating infraction points for "Continual disobedience", "Ignoring moderator instructions" and "Lack of respect for, insulting, or harassment of other members" reasons. This has seen a "Serial offender" infraction issued. We did not come at this decision lightly. As a long standing and popular member, we appreciate the value that GIMH brings to the forum. We all understood that he has very strong feelings about certain members and the moderation of the forum. Over the course of the past few weeks, many in the moderation team reached out to him to discuss our point of view. It was our hope that though we may disagree in the end, GIMH would at least respect the rules and policies of the site. Instead, he continued to break the rules and targeted and harassed members he disagreed with. After his last infraction, he asked for a voluntary 6 months ban from the site, which we denied. We did not feel it appropriate to ban someone for any length of time when they hadn’t broken any rules. Unfortunately it became clear through his communication and posts afterwards that GIMH was determined to get himself banned from the site. Since he continued to break the rules and post in a manner that was extremely detrimental to the forum atmosphere, we had no choice but to apply the infractions that have banned him for 6 months.
A note to other members: we welcome constructive feedback and if you feel strongly about any issue, please free to email us. We don’t want multiple threads across the forum to be derailed so we ask everyone to refrain from targeting any members because of this ban.
