As most everyone knows we were going to let mr.Big back in the BB on the 1st of February. From very recent posts it appears that even before this was to happen that he has yet again gone into a tyraid on the LDA server using foul language and throwing out racist remarks. Now comes a question if we should permanently ban him from the forum even before he has a chance to return and possibly do the same here?
This is a question for all to respond to and make their views known. We need to determine the answer to this question before this Saturday (his return date). Please make your thoughts known now. Thanks the Admins.

Sorry Scrap, but I left before he started in and since it was on the LDA server only LDA can extract the log information. Suffice it to say others that were there have posted some information in the thread called Capn crunch.
Look here

Ban him. Boot him. Block him. Forever.

Use extreme prejudice.

I was there and can testify.

Worthless piece of festering humanity.

The worst.

from what i can tell, if i had been there i would be running the risk of getting MYSELF banned wil the language that i would be using to insult guido and get him permanently banned. but, i still stand by what i said before. someone who is racist wouldnt have the honor or whatever u want to call it to stay out of a place where he is not wanted. he would make a new name and we would make a game out of figuring out who he is.

how many times do we have to go through this you dolt?

1) M$ products sux
2) Novell products rule.
3) As/400 products are stable but over priced and require an IQ of 3 to operate. Which is amazing that you even qualify. Must have interviewed you on a good day.

next!

I *think* one gets booted from a server based on name OR IP number. People like Matrix or Par could better answer this one, as I don't understand the nuances of IP numbers.
As I didn't hear/see the exchange, it is hard for me to come to a decision outright. That said, if it were just ME, I would be more lenient. My kids, however, do play on the servers and the LDA server in particular. I do not want them to have to be subjected to such language and insults. They do not have it in them to have the judgement to just leave, or not respond. They just don't have the maturity. If someone who has been reasonable in the past (Synack and Bonzo Dog) feel that his (Guido's/mrBIG's) behaviour is not worthly of being on a public server, than I support that decision.

Yes Sue...

If you are the Server operator and you can get to the server screen, all you have to do is type in:

/kick Player's name
Press return and "Poof!!" Player gone!

Hmmm...the banlist.txt file doesn't seem to work. Any ideas how this is supposed to work?

Fergot to mention that you should find the banlist.txt file in yer TM root, right there besides the config.cfg and dedicated.cfg files...

Hey this reminds me, from time to time I see "player removed from game". What's going on there?

I was not there nor have I heard what was said. That said however, I will stand by any descision that is made. Racist remark are not something that I would tolerate at all well. Remarks of that ilk are, in my opinion, an affront to everyone and shouldn't be allowed around children if at all possible.

So mrBig is actually Guido after all, eh?

I was all for banning Guido back when he first showed up, then back when he showed up again as himself and Marmalizer, and I'm all for banning him again now, just on principle.

"player AI-(name) removed from game" appears when someone joins a server and the computer removes an AI.

i could end up in warm water as far as profanity goes. i know that i have lost it in the past and probably will loose it again in the future on the servers. now i pretty much have it under control, i just go ^%@#$^#@& all the time, even when im not angry at my modem, it saves time too!

(sometimes i wonder, why are "bad" words "bad"? i mean, they're only "bad" because we make them that way arent they?)

My choice Scrap. That subject was at the end of its life and this question - due to actions reported on the LDA server over the weekend - required a new thread to deal with the question. I hope that is alright with everyone, but I did not want to continue with that thread having replies that should be dealt with separately based on new circumstances.
