If it pleases the court,

I'm really bored, and I was gonna write something really fancy, but now that I'm actually starting, I'm way too hungry.

Benzine was banned for saying the n word, but was warned for each use of the word resulting in 900 points or so. However, I've seen, and I know you've seen, similar (although not to the same scale) incidents occur where the offending user has only been warned for the post, not for each individual offence in the post. Basically, I should've been warned for 50 points or so, instead of 900.

Can I have my old account back plox?

Ronnie: What? Just because I'm black you think I did it?
Danny: No, because you did it I think you did it.

I can remember a time when you were proud of those 900-1100 infraction points. Enough to nominate yourself for the GW Book of Retards Records, anyway.

http://forums.gamewinners.com/forums...3&postcount=63

However, I thought at the time (and still do) that penalizing you for every instance of the infraction that appeared in a single post was gratuitous overkill.

So, for the record, I'm not against reducing the penalty to a single 50 pt. Act of Hate infraction (long since expired) and reinstating your Benzine account.

Swiftly over that and couldn't care less if that whole e-book turned into something useful like a new toilet seat.

Furthermore, in hoping this is accepted, could you just merge the Benzine account with this one, as a neat surprise for when I next log in? Under the name of Benzine, por favor.

It's not up to me (or to me alone, at any rate). The rest of the Upper Staff needs to chime in with their opinions and Apollo and Cole will have the final say on this matter.

Yeah, I could unban and merge the accounts now on my own initiative, but wouldn't it suck (for you ) to have that hasty move overturned by the Admins a few hours later?

In the meantime I'll PM them a link to this topic.

I'm good with it personally.

Them's my two cents. You've got 2/5 now.

When I got the warnings that put me over the top and banned it was for two infractions in the same post, but I was flaming two different people, so even I knew that my argument for a single warning was leaky. (Technically, what put me over the top was calling the Console Combat mods "bozos" in this very forum.)

I know that Cole is against unbannings in general, but this case is about the appropriateness of the course of action taken that resulted in the ban in the first place.

I'm inclined to agree that it was overly harsh and should be reduce to the single 50 point infraction.

I posted song lyrics and simply forgot to take out the offending words. Not saying I shouldn't of been warned, just that it wasn't an intentional assault on the honourable laws of this e-nation.

This recess sure is lengthy.

I also have no problem in reducing the infraction down to the now-expired 50 points.

It's nice to see that I've got the majority of the GW Supreme Court. I feel like Alan Shore but without any brilliant nonsense.

Ronnie: What? Just because I'm black you think I did it?
Danny: No, because you did it I think you did it.

Coleman and mara have had two days to chime in and haven't.

Based on the opinions of the Upper Staff who have posted here, I've gone ahead and merged the strscm account into the unbanned Benzine account.
