Geez, here we go again. Cascade, with all that time bullshitting with Teutone, you didn't ask him this question in private? Having this picked over in "public" here is never helpful.

Anyway, Teutone, if you are going to indulge us in "Moderator True Confessions" I am much more curious about this guage buying a lifetime premium membership avenue of getting around a permanent ban. I mean, I could be inspired to go apeshit on a few guys, get banned and come back with special priviledges.....

Actually I did speak with teutone about the Designo ban a bit, over cocktails, but felt it best to be discreet about what was said, in those discussions, and not to reveal them here, unless teutone saw fit to do so.

I would say that teutone did feel that Destino_E320 did bring his own point of view to the discussions, and it is B W's policy to encourage a diversity of opinion.

Being a moderator is not always easy (as you would know) and difficult decsions, that are not pleasant, have to be made. I can assure you though, that teutone derived no personal joy, from the banning of this individual .

As to avoid banning by buying a "Lifetime Premium membership" that came up too, but only as a joking matter. If puts the mods in a difficlut position if someone really awful tried to use that as a way to get around censure for really bad or vicious posts.

I take it your tongue is firmly in your cheek with that remark?

My biggest problem with Designo was the blatant hypocrisy that he so regularly posted with. He would passionately complain (sometimes correctly) about the racism and prejudice he encountered as a Muslim or as a person of Pakistani descent. And in the next breath he would spew the most venomous hatred about Jews, Homosexuals and Black people. He would post about how sacred family is, and how important it was to teach children well, and the next week he directly insults another forum member's 10-ish year old child. He comes back to BWOT after Eid professing to be full of love, tolerance and understanding, and then immediately starts new threads designed to bait people of various religions, ethnicities, sexual preferences, etc.

I found him to be hostile and combative, always looking for a fight. It was the same over on MercedesShop, where he got himself banned much faster for basically the same behavior. It is a shame he couldn't overcome that combative side to his nature more often, because when he did there were times where I found he did add to the conversation, even when I didn't agree with him.

I'm not going to speculate on what makes him such an angry person, always out looking for a fight on a car forum. I'm happy he's gone. I think he demeaned this place with his blatant racism and bigotry.

I see what you mean, that new policy of "Lifetime Premium Membership"
may already need to be put to the test. I never thought it was a good one.

I don't really know much about guage, though, so I defer to your judgment about the guy, and it appears you think little of him...

This place is in trouble if Rex/SellC buys one of the Lifetime Premium Membeships under a different name. He has a limitless supply of ISP to draw on and has been banned about 50 times, I heard, but still keeps coming back and causing more trouble.
