Default GrannyMae Post

This was moved from Tournament Circuit although I believe it originated in BBV. I definitely don't think TC is the correct forum.

In any event, some of these comments have crossed the line and I think there needs to be some penalties handed out. I'm specifically talking about brazillo and PITTM. There really isn't a history in the user notes for either of these relating to this type of behavior. So I'm thinking a 1-day ban is in order. If you disagree I'm open to other thoughts.

Sorry, just to be clear the post I'm referring to has been moved to the Mod forum.

PITTM used to cheat, admitted it on the forum, grannymae made sure everybody knew it. PITTM said that he has never trolled GM, but it clear that he has.

fwiw... GM did post in BBV... I assume the rediculous (yet standard) responses originated there...

(Beyond that, I have no opinion)

Yeah, he posted in BBV. Next time I assume I should move it to Legislation as a tax Q, like iron PM'd me? I really had no idea where to send it, but it wasn't a BBV post either.

So those types of responses are acceptable in BBV?

Part of PITTM's unbanning last week was that if he returned to his obsessive trolling behavior where he essentially loses his mind and ruins a thread, he would be banned again for much longer than 1 day

PITTM's "incinerator" post epitomizes the excessively abusive remark that Mat wants to stop at Twoplustwo, in my opinion.

Some of the other comments are also delete-worthy.

FWIW, I agree with your suggested punishment.

There is no mention in PITTM's user notes of any recent issues concerning trolling. Do you have a suggestion other than a 1-day ban? I have no history with him so I defer to those that no about his past.

Well, since you want an opinion...

Have you read BBV lately?... I would say berating a non BBV post in BBV is par for the course. (Not that I think its great, its just the way it is)

Remember, BBV is one of the garbage dumps on 2+2...

Further, if that post had been posted in Finance, my action would have been to edit out the nasty remarks and add a post telling them to chill out on the personal attacks (same for MMB). If the post had been in TLDR, I would likely have done what you did and moved it here and considered suspensions.

So, bottom line, yeah I think the action should vary based on the forum...
