    Yes, the consequence of attending a thread where people post drunk.

    If you go to the thread sober and with delicate sensitivities, then you have no right to be all up in arms when someone posts something offensive.

    I didn't see anyone with delicate sensitivities in the thread.

    His banning as been coming for a while now I suspect, the latest snap was just what pushed him over the edge as it was done in a way that couldn't be ignored or accepted. Still I will miss his presence, he had the ability to make me laugh on more than a few occasions when others were being so anally serious.

    I didn't always agree with Flak, but found his presence added a lot to the forum. The independence, directness, humor, and at times unflagging regard for the "correct" over the dull and nice were refreshing. Many of the people who've jumped on his case now (but were too much of a weakling to start with him without the herd on their side) are no match, and some painfully unaware of this. And some very aware of it (hence the passive-aggressive cattiness you see).
    When people are bullied, it isnt necessarily weakness to avoid confronting the bullies - on a forum it's just a simple shortcut to an easier life. After all, a bully can't beat you up and steal your lunchmoney online. The ignore button really works!

    Right? Last time I checked, drinking won't get you out of jail if you do something bad.

    Ditto.

    I think it's hilarious when someone acts like they or anyone else is the alpha and omega of a forum.
