    If you're deliberately turning a blind eye to the WE board, LP Moderators, in an effort to justify pulling the plug at a later date because of inappropriate behavior, then why not just pull the plug now and be done with it. By allowing a previously banned troll to return and post his bile once again, you're sending the message to all posters that anything goes and the Community Standards no longer matter.

    As a couple of other long-time posters recently stated, if this has become the norm for the LP Discussion Boards, a free-for-all for trolls, then the Boards are no longer enjoyable for those who desire respectful speech free from hate and bigotry. I guess it's time to join another discussion board and let the troll have this one.

    Ignoring jerks only works for the short term. And this troll is bound and determined to bring down the discussion boards which previously banned him. I'm disappointed that no one managing the LP Discussion Boards seems to care about the Community Standards anymore. Since you moderators obviously don't care if he does this, so be it. But I really expected better from you.

    Forget about Beau. The witches have really upped the crazy. I'm expecting a flat-earther next...that's got to be the next level of whack-a-doodle, right?

They really don't owe us anything.

    That said, what makes the present situation all the more pathetic, disturbing and disappointing is there always has to be someone who takes advantage of a situation and abuses it to no end. Ironically, we now have yet again an individual who has indeed been repeatedly banned, only to re-surface under another sock puppet, whose political leanings espouse the free market and little to no regulation, but whose behavior is a great example FOR it. It's sad there are people like this, who ruin it for everyone else, simply because they can.

    It would be nice if the site operators stepped up. It would be nice if the site operators did something, anything. The a-hole in question was banned for making a rather horrible comment about a very non-controversial poster's wife, and I can't imagine how that poster feels right about now seeing the jerk who abused his wife allowed to run amuck here gain. I'd be looking to cut his balls off, provided they could be found. The site runners could at least give that family an explanation. If he's allowed to stay, they could begin to lose traffic to this site and if they depend on it for any part of their livelihood, they should act sooner than later.

    That's funny. A poster that constantly violates community standards pleading for moderation.

    You don't have to worry about that. You're not. You're a small man with a small mind who bullies others in a misguided attempt to feel big.

    I've argued with skinnerbox, supported Utahjosh because although I don't always agree with him I feel he is NOT a troll and is sometimes treated unfairly, think Beau should be banned but also find him bizarre almost to the point of being amusing, and am surprised to find that the Witches of late are such major consumers of tinfoil.

    So I guess I am more or less moderate, people here seem to at least grudgingly accept me, and I think the few who truly should be banned usually are.

    Balance has been restored to the LP universe.

    This statement would seem to suggest that you think the mods were wrong for banning Beau again.

    True?
