For the record: the last time Allstar was banned I posted in this very thread a nicely packaged defense for the guy and how he has good intentions but ultimately gets in the way of himself. I suggested allowing him back, and if he fucks up badly again, permaban him. I defended him. He even DM'd me thanking me for defending him, and he promised he wouldn't backslide.
Well, as we all know, he did backslide. Quickly. His default setting is to sow seeds of discontent, constantly, with microaggressions and passive aggressive comments, then he hides before an "I didn't realize" shield every time. The thing is, I don't think he realizes. He is so accustomed to treating people like shit he's lost all awareness of that's how he treats other people.
I still don't want him permabanned over this incident. I agree with the above posts, they are fair. But, speaking for myself, he's been antagonizing me for weeks. Then, purposefully or not, said something unspeakably offensive. It was either premeditated or a symptom of a much deeper problem he can't correct. Either way, for me, he can get fucked for the foreseeable future. I can't promise I'll ever be cool with the guy. I thought we were friends.
Anybody can DM me here or on twitter or FB or whatever, you guys know I'm pretty easy going about reaching out regardless of the circumstances, shitty though this last week has been.
