Because it probably wasn't loud enough in an existing thread, I thought I'd make it's own thread.
I'm trying to suggest we leave Exploder alone. You know that guy blamed for the destruction of the store, accused of spamming, etc, etc? Yeah, that Exploder. I'm using his name, for crying out loud, what's so frickin' hard to understand?! Erm, yeah.
It's understandable that anger was prevalent when it all came down; even I ventured into the Melee for the first time (the first deliberate time anyway -- I wish people would stop posting innocent-looking links to threads in the Melee!!!) to petition that he be banned. In hindsight that wasn't an entirely good idea.
I say we start anew. Give him one last chance, as a community. I don't speak as an authority in these forums, the administrators can give him as many chances as they choose. A lot of people seem to have run out of patience though. I'm not exactly his best friend, but even I can see a rather disgusting reaction when I see it. I'm trying to distance myself from my own initial response, and there were a lot worse. I don't know about you, but I don't want to become the kind of person who ostracises another (regular) member of the forums, regardless of what he/she has done. No, not even Y2KTM2. And I'm sure you wouldn't want the same treatment if you found yourself in an Exploder-like mess. So I say, we let bygones be bygones, wipe the slate clean and all that, and give him a chance. Stop picking on him at every turn. If he screws up again, even I might run out of patience, but he should have the chance to do so. What do you say? As for you Exploder, I hope you finally learn something from all this. You've probably noticed a few posts and even dedicated threads with hostility directed at you by now. The admins have seen fit to spare your membership, I'd make use of that opportunity and strive to become a model poster if I were you.

I can start to respect him again if he stops posting hes "How often to you cut your toenails" threads.

Mast3rofPuppetsBtw, why did you post this in the spam forum?
:clueless: Where should I have posted it? Not exactly a specific forum for this sort of thing, really.
I really must say...I feel like a burden to GF. Really.

I agree totally Matt. Hes a sound guy if you talk to him, im not asking people to like him, just dont post shit about him, ya know?
Were a gaming community, not a sleazy back alley pub, where people have no respect for each other (bad example, I know :lol: )
He tells me he's realised his wrong doings, and that he cant believe he sounded so immature, so I guess if he doesnt piss around, he's ok to stay, with at least the small amount of respect, that you guys wont rip the piss out of him at every given opportunity...
I would die without my life.
