a week or so ago i commented on a article about the thai government banning youtube because videos that were considered insulting to the monarch were posted to it... this was the comment, verbatim, and this was the only comment i made: for this comment i was banned for a week and a half. the reasoning given was “moronic racism” so... 10 points to whoever can point out the irony of this ban. and further, i actually have very extensive knowledge about thailand and its people, my father spent 5 years in thailand in the early 90's designing call centers for a major western communications company. he would come home and recall all the weird stuff about them. the story about the coin rolling is 100% true, ASK ANYONE FROM THAILAND! so, when did afterdawn become a place where the slightest insult results in a ban? if you want a healthy flow of free ideas you have to be a little more tough-skinned than to ban someone for calling populous oppressing regimes "crazy". at first when i learned about my ban i was furious and was going to demand an apology, but now ill just settle for afterdawn admitting they were wrong. to fix this may i suggest that mods must have two other mods confirm a ban, you know like checks and balances, to prevent overzealous banning. i think it would be hard to find someone that thought was i said was "moronic racism".
