Shayne I get your point of view but did those posters break the rules or have done something that would justify a ban for life?
Yes, they all did on numerous occasions.
In real life, you have several ranges of punishment... Life sentence is one of them, for sure, but there are others....
This is not real life.
I believe it's reasonable to say that those posters (and other trolls) have done their time.
There is no renegging on this at all. I for one, will not bring back those who continually harassed/abused other members for their own pathetic enjoyment. How would that be fair to anyone currently on the board now? Not to mention some of the trolls etc undertook illegal acts.
They didn't insult the integrity, the values, the core of this board that justified the ban for life, am I assuming right?
Yes, they did.
I don't care to give any more time to these idiots than I have. Advocating for ex-members who have been banned for constant, abusive behaviour towards others in order to give the board some life or entertainment value is ridiculous.
If you want catty drama from alcoholics, nutjobs and delusional people, then maybe you should tune in to Real Housewives. It's all there for you - not on this board.
(Carlos is quite capable of speaking for himself on your other issues if he chooses to so, I will leave that with him.)
