I'd agree and kick up a fuss but Captain is enjoying his ban since he can get some work done.
Deserves a longer ban actually. Perhaps a year

yeah........bring Daemon back
and also Blaze18
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
The ban was a function not of moderator opinion, though, but of the infraction system we put in place to instill consistency and prevent specific opinion of members and the biases they bring from clouding the issue of the offences. Under the rules we have, which he would've known, it was a fair ban. I do think it might have exploited (for lack of a better word) a little hole in the infraction system wrt "offensive material" though; it's something that'll be discussed in the mod forum and possibly altered slightly in the future. There's a big difference between posting something like that in a relevant thread without a warning and posting hardcore porn images directly for example, yet the infraction is the same, which is arguably a little off.

We've split the "posting offensive material" infraction option into two categories. The difference in interpretation will be based on intent and the level of offense likely to be caused.
Posting offensive material (heavy) - 40 points
This infraction option will be used if, for example, someone posts hardcore porn directly in a thread, tricks someone into clicking on a malicious link or posts anything we believe has the specific intention of offending the community.
Posting offensive material (light) - 15 points
This infraction option will be used in situations like the recent Daemon example, whereby someone links to something we don't consider appropriate with no warning, but is either not deliberate or not outrageously offensive.
As such, Daemon's infraction has been changed from being worth 40 points to being worth 15, and his ban has been reduced from one month to seven days.

How many points for a Rickroll?
