    Nicely said.

    Let's hope people read carefully. There's a lot of value in what you're offering that goes far beyond simple forum culture.

    If you are a member of an emotionally cruel community, it is a test of your character whether or not you stand up to the community.

    To identify with the community is the coward's way out but it allows you to look like a good person.

    Jack had more sand in his craw than that.
    You inveigh against the emotional cruelty lurking behind the community yet you gloss over and excuse JackFlak's repeated cruelty?

    Your motives are so subjective as to be questionable.

    Why don't you stand up for what is right rather than who you love?

    If you cannot defend what is right, then you do not love at all.

    So basically Jack was the typical angry smart guy that had a few friends that sympathized with him.

    I would throw over all respect, admiration and praise simply for contact.

    Jack gave and received genuine emotional contact.

    And I feel sure he would never mistake respect, admiration and praise for an emotional bond.

    My assessment: JF is a brilliant, angry, artistic, misunderstood, out of control, suffering man at war with himself and the world. A man on fire. Many people identify deeply with this, myself included. He acted in a way that many people either cannot or would not risk acting like because their need to be here is greater than their desire to act out.

    But, as you see, you cannot tread the razor's edge for long without falling to one side. And he did, and these consequences are what people shrink from because we want to believe that man can fly. Even if, in this case, his flight consisted of being brilliant and a drunk out of control asshole who miscalculated and got banned. Now he wants back. But, why? That is the pathetic part to me. Because part of why he wanted to be here was to be punished.

    No problem. And thanks for letting us all know that you like to spend your free time snooping on private conversations without any justification. Thank God you took action when you did! I mean he made 1 post in six months. Anarchy might have ensued!!

    I'm so grateful for your efforts.

    Thanks for the clarification, Trin. It's still a stupid rule. The whole point of not allowing dupes is to prevent spamming or repeat offences. Jack exercised restraint by not actively participating. There was no repeat offence. Mindless enforcement of petty rules is pretty pathetic. Even more pathetic than personal vendetta.

    Head AND heart.

    I am sure there are many here who would extend genuine emotional contact to you. I know I would. But, you purposefully keep people at a distance while waiting and baiting them to see past your puzzles and mazes of thought. Instead of just expressing, "I want to be touched."

    You don't understand me. I know you don't want to. Your vision is clouded by emotion.
