    "Seriously polarizing" implies there are people who actually give a fuck... This is, without doubt, the most apathetic ban post-mortem in the history of the forum... I almost feel like defending him, that's how shit it is!

    Someone said they were "slightly sad", someone else went "aww", and someone was afraid.

    RIP MacGuffin, not much of a send off, but better than a kick in the balls.

    What kind of send-off are you looking for?

    Hm.. The class clowns aren't usually the people whom are missed and coveted when they are gone. Usually it's the passionate, opinionated dramatic people that get big hoop-la's regarding their absence since it's felt more. Mac was funny, never did anything wrong by me, and I enjoyed his posts. But my reaction was more "Omg really?! Huh!" than something that warranted an immediate post in here stating how sad I was.

    Oh. I guess I was so out of the loop with who he was that I didn't even know what sort of effect that he had on people.

    I can see this. With the passionate, opinionated folks, there's usually a five-thousand page thread that demands their return.

    My personal theory: The information was of a sensitive nature, and as such if they merely posted in the Banned and Damned thread there would be a thread started anyways going "Omg Haight totally is keeping info from us and not posting all the ban information!!" so he thought he'd beat that to the punch by just posting a straight forward thread that would inevitably be created either way. Which also sort of takes the fire out of the situation, since the OPs of member-created threads tend to be a bit more passionate in the first place.

    It's not like he hasn't done this before, on occasion, to beat things to the punch. It just hasn't happened in a while.

    The only interaction I ever had with Mac is that he called me a narcissist once. And the only other thing I'd particularly noted about him is that he listed his type as xkcd and I hate that comic. Odd, seeing as how he was such a high-profile poster and apparently polarizing for everyone else.
    WUT? I think you're the first person I've ever met who dislikes xkcd. I'm not sure we can be friends anymore.
