I think he went far beyond "doing what he thought Rebecca would want" and was just being a spiteful jerk when he banned Kurt for the speeding video. Attitudes like his are not conducive towards any kind of meaningful community.

I agree.

I just don't know what the realistic solution is.

The old Irish directions to a traveller: 'If that's where you want to go, I wouldn't start from here'.

Sigh.
Massey: No, he needs to be left alone.  We can't fix any of this with violence.
Schlock: You're just afraid to use enough of it.

Tagon: So what is it, gas?  Ice crystals?
Ennesby:  It's a melange.
Tagon: I didn't ask what colour it was!

Meh.

Maybe I'm a pushover, but I'm more than willing to see what happens know that Rebecca has ever so slightly intervened.  Not having carte blanche to ban away may be enough to address people's objections to Beleth.

Rebecca's explanation on why Beleth was behaving as he did is suitable for me to give the benifit of the doubt, and to wait and see what happens.

I was pretty set to take a looooooooooooong break from the forums after Kurt's banning, but I have been placated for now.

I don't think we've yet heard from those who voted "yes."  ???

At least one of them was a mistake, as posted earlier in the thread :P

Was Zookster saying I shouldn't have started this thread? I can't tell for sure.

No, I was just saying that I missread the question when I voted.
