Am I really that bad?

Is Fisticuffs completely awful?

Yes. Worse than cancer.
Sometimes but no worse than most.
Not at all, Jjoyce must have something up his ass.
Pretty bad but not as bad as cancer/Flanders.

That said, you would benefit from never replying to Flanders again. Nine times out of ten you're the first reply after he posts. I don't know if you're one of those people who enjoys being outraged, but it sure seems that way. Flanders really knows how to push your buttons.

But in my opinion, neither of you (nor HOMOsapien) should be banned.


I don't think you're as bad as the trolls, Fisticuffs, but I've gotta ask:

Knowing that they're trolls (acknowledged by most of us and Forum management), why do you feel the need to lavish so much time and attention on them?

He, apparently, feels that your contributions are counterproductive to the forum. He's "getting a paycheck" to not only read the posts, but to respond and interject when he feels necessary. THAT's his role. THAT's where the complaints are coming from.

If some people are actually outed as being trolls, then why haven't they been banned? If they've been allowed to be here for so long, then obviously Joyce is encouraging others to participate in some exchange with them. What's the point of allowing them to be on here if no one is supposed to respond to them and allow their garbage to go unchecked. Fisticuffs, I don't really see you as a troll. I really don't see homosapien as one either. There are others that are much, much worse.

Let's bring Carol back. Then we can really talk about cancer.

Btw, I did not vote.

I found Fisti quite helpful when I had a question regarding a video game I was contemplating buying.

I also find many of his other posts informative and interesting. And, dare I say it... entertaining at times? Even if the content is in stark contrast to my own thoughts/opinions sometimes.

I think clemency should be the order of the day should our voices count.
