By your reasoning, if I went out and burned down a library, I'd be helping society.

No.
If one burns down a library, everything is lost; with wikipedia everything can be restored. That's the difference.

Never mind BROJ explained your simple minded thrills.
Without adversity, there can be no desire for refinery. Needing an opponent, isn't that one of the tenet's of the Springtime of Youth?
Vandalizing Wikipedia should be a national past time

Well, aren't you a sad fuck?
Come now... isn't it adversity that fuels advancement and refinery?

Wikipedia barely hangs on as it is. Most of the best work comes from dedicated, tireless editors who sacrifice a lot of free time and emotional well-being to deal with the rigorous process of research and improvement, even subject to peer review. It is not easy to write a great Wikipedia article, and neither is it easy to be an active editor and contributor without burning out. And dealing with vandalism is a sure way to get burned out; it's caused a few editors to even retire from the site. Even though I disagree with some of Wikipedia's policies, and even though its total democracy gets in the way of some good changes or articles, it's still a fantastic project and help to humanity.
Good points, but adversity is still a necessary evil.

Personally, I wouldn't want men - even a man who thinks he's a woman - in a woman's restroom. It's just.. awkward. Although, what direction will the bathrooms and locker rooms go in the movement for sexual equality? I don't really like the idea of unisex, so how about separate restrooms for men, women, gays, lesbians, men who want to be/think they are/sex changed to women, and women who want to be/think they are/sex changed to men. I think that covers all of them...

Beyond the social sense of either modesty or an ick factor, can you think of any reason you are opposed to unisex bathrooms? My emotional response is for segregated restrooms, but I'm not sure if I can think of any practical reasons to back that up.
Simple. Most men like the toilet seat left up, and most woman like the toilet seat left down. :P

Unexplainable fatigue.

There's nothing quite as annoying as planning a ton of activities for the next day, and then, inextricably losing the energy or willpower to do them. Perhaps it's summer... Perhaps, I'm innately a horrible procrastinator. Whatever it is, it seems I have to fight this curse everyday.

Dear sweet baby Jesus! How did you get your eyes like that?
A little Photoshop magic.  :D

Bro J, how old are you? You look like you're 16.
I get that a lot, but I'm 20, going on 21 in the fall.

This isn't mentioning all the white-knighting and e-pussying that was going on over her.
I'll have you know I was 'grey-knighting'! :roll:

...Well looks like it's time to hit the ol' dusty trail. There's really no more good argumentation to this topic as it looks like nobody else is going to get 'unbanned'.

I overrode Zeality's jurisdiction in the case of the IRC service and the CE leakers, even though he had wanted them immediately banned from the service. Then he went away to Europe for a few weeks and came back to find the leak hadn't caused the shutdown of the site or any legal action, so he had probably cooled down on the matter for the time being and was waiting for me to make a final decision on the IRC bans in regards to the CE leakers and then carry out the final actions of banning them, especially since it was only a week or so ago that he probably learned how to ban people from the IRC channel.

With Laith's ban, on the other hand, he had sole jurisdiction over as well as the support of the admins, and he was also acting on more recent and as yet unaddressed causes, so I wouldn't compare the two cases.
*sigh* So you had jurisdiction over it. I see...

Good times, but it looks like you win this time. :) Sorry for taking time out of your schedule, and no hard feelings towards the admin, I just wanted to have a little fun.

Yes, but a tolerant atmosphere was present when tea was around for that duration. ZeaLitY demonstrated his ability to actively kick Laith because he was banned, for instance.
Proof:
Quote from: IRC Chat log
...
Yet nobody did this to tea... Why? I feel no real effort was made to keep tea off #compendium, but apparently for Laith there was.

EDIT: Added entire log, to prevent suspicion.

The first week or so seemed tolerated because teaflower and Agasa were supposedly investigating the ROM leak a little more.

After that, her still being in #compendium basically came down to the fact that teaflower just whines too much and acts overly pathetic about the matter, and then causes other people to whine over her case as well, making it hard to just straight up kickban her while she's there. Nobody wants to be the target of all that whining and complaining, so it went ignored for another week or so. Eventually someone had to do it though, especially since #compendium was just becoming a hangout joint for supposedly banned members.
First off, good argument(I'm not whining, just arguing for sport ;)), and I think a few more moves and I might have to admit defeat. But...

This was never made official, so why are you using it as an official defense now? At any rate, I question the MO of ZeaLitY in your argument. If I remember correctly, ZeaLitY didn't believe tea one bit as the chat logs made it an 'open and shut' case and he expressed such. Not to mention, tea purportedly almost put ZeaLitY, JP et al in jail for her actions, so why would ZeaLitY consider something that could have affected his real life as lesser priority than the case of Laith and IRC?

<tea> :o
<kando> lmao
<tea> I take it you napped, Z.
<ZeaLitY> Today BROJ PMed me congratulating me for banning Laith and expressing thanks that IRC wouldn't so fucking stupid now
<Ramsus> The best way to set the tone, however, is by example.
<Jutty> I still don't understand why he was banned.
<Ramsus> Just something to keep in mind.
<ZeaLitY> He's been banned twice before for the exact same thing
<ZeaLitY> He trolls and antagonizes members; I received complaints on the forums and IRC both
<tea> brb
<Jutty> I do think it was because he didn't agree with you and was generally disliked by the "popular kids".
<Ramsus> Actually, he's been banned a few times in the past.
<Jutty> And I don't understand why you would tell someone to kill themselves.
<Jutty> Over an irc conversation.
* Carnivol thought it was a well established fact that internet isn't exactly the place you should put first on the list for "serious business"
<Jutty> I wasn't here for it tho so I only know about heresay.
<kando> ZeaLitY: for the record
<kando> teling someone to kill themselves
<kando> is quite sociopathic
<kando> just a little fyi

If I may make a short appeal on tea's behalf:

tea was not immediately removed from the IRC board until quite a bit after her ban on the forums inasmuch as the two punishments have a tangible difference in time. For this I plead autrefois convict, or a dismissal of tea's ban on IRC, on the basis that the two punishments can be construed as separate actions (and further double jeopardy) despite being called a "site ban" (Is she banned from the front page as well? That is more connected to the CC than IRC.) I know double jeopardy has already been plead, but it should be noted that the administration had failed to enforce her ban on IRC in a reasonable, non-tolerant amount of time, and by this, gave up their right, on a legal basis anyways, to ban her from #compendium. I realize this isn't a court of law, but I figured basic constitutional rights would apply here.

Walmart can take a very large dildo in their asses. Plain and simple.

Oh it is hardly that plain or simple. Would it be a glass one, rubber, metal, plastic, wood, or alternate material? Would this be manual or electronic? Anatomically correct or stylistic? Scented or unscented?

And you have failed to take into account the sexual preferences of Walmart. Does it like south entry, is it into S&M, is it conservative or experimental, etc?

For all we know, you could be saying that Walmart can have a pleasant evening at home alone.

 :lol: Wow... awkward; if it was the electronic bit, it would be specifically called a 'vibrator' (which alone encompass many other options I'll not be going into).
