Wow is he perma banned?

I've seen people say way worse things and get away with it.
TBH, I was drunk posting on another board and I told someone to off themselves. I got my first ban. I contacted a mod and apologized. Unbanned in about an hour. They knew me. I just crossed the line. Well... cross the line for a normal open forum. I was a site admin for 15 years for an online forum where we pretty much allowed people to say just about whatever they wanted. I drew the line at racists.

What's odd is some people seem to get away so easily with personal attacks, but then if you're a good guy and go out of line even once mods tend to be harder on you. Seems to be like that at all forums, Reddit, etc. I got perma banned from /r/canada for calling ISIS sand gingers (except with a few letters rearranged). I've seen people say much worse things and actually direct it at people who are not terrorists. Also got banned from /r/ontario for calling out someone for not isolating after going to the states. On Reddit most bans are permanent with no warning.

I only start work on Wednesday. 3 day shifts working from home, then on vacation again. :D

I slept in today, been getting up early all week. Super nice day to work on my deck today though so I really should have gotten up early. It's like 12 degrees out and not raining, and cloudy. Does not get any better than that to work outside.
