    All righty, let's not make this a 'let's trash' thread. That would be both unnecessary and redundant. I'd just like to know the back story; someone has it.

    Word is it's temporary which is just as well. The politics forum would be one big bore if it were filled with just 'us', let's face it. Oh, god, now I'll be in the crosshairs.

    Anyway, what sent him over the edge? And how'd he do it?
    I'm thinking this curiosity is a little unseemly. My apologies.

    I noticed that this morning. Also saw two other people banned in the last 24 hours after only making their first posts, which were not bannable. Wonder what's going on?

    From the surface it looks like "multiple account syndrome". But who knows? Either way, it's a surprise.

    I can't imagine star running multiple accounts and if he had, it wouldn't be a temporary ban.

    I don't think I've ever agreed with any of his posts in the Politics forum. But I did find his posts gave me an insight into the american conservative mindset. He seemed nice enough in the other forums.

    But I do wonder why now and not earlier. He seemed to be mellowing a little lately.

    Edit: Ah, it's temporary. Perhaps he will enlighten us when he returns.

    I can think of a few political commentators on this site - from both sides of the aisle - that frequently post inflammatory, baiting, burn-your-bridges, over-the-top rhetoric (& one lives in SoCal & is a self-described bisexual in his username, but I will not name names! I'm above that!), however, I have found starinvestor, on the whole, to be generally fair and measured... who at least tries to back up his more outrageous claims with facts & links (even if they are from ultra-conservative hacky sources like Townhall.com)


    I think the starman brings a lively wit and a... a snap. crack, & pop!....& some passion to the mix.

    My 2 cents.

    Careful now, young will. No need to draw fire. And how is it you haven't even broken 500 posts yet?

    Star should not have been banned IMO.

    What did he do wrong?

    Surely it cannot just be for his opinions, just because some folks here disagree with him?

    He is not *THAT* conservative. He is a republican, but he is not member of the religious right. he fights his corner and stands up for his point of view, even though he knows he will be attacked by those who find his view less popular. Frankly, he does not do anything with anymore or less passion than those on the left who constantly oppose his view.

    He is obviously not a social conservative...he simply holds conservative economic views, is concerned how fiscal policy affects him and his family and friends etc. and tends to hold conservative views on foreign policy.

    He clearly is completely liberal and tolerant on social issues...he has no problems with gays, doesn't scream about being Pro-Life, or Pro-God or shriek about you taking his gun from his cold dead hands... and is posting on a site dedicated to penises. He never tries to censor the opposing view to his.

    So why was he banned?

    I do not think that is fair if he is being censored for strongly defending his viewpoint as a Republican. Last i checked, being a moderate republican was not a bad thing, no matter what is said by many on the far lefyt...being a moderate or liberal republican is virtually the exact same thing as being a conservative democrat.

    There is little to no difference, except in terms of affiliation. Frankly, the far left and far right both worry me far more than a Conservative Democrat or a Liberal Republican.

    Of course if this was not the reason he was banned, then i'll just go ahead and shut up. :smile:

    --------------------

    As Karl Marx noted, quantity changes quality.

    So, I'm only going to post relevant, meaningful posts from now on.


    Meaning: no more supermarket games... no guessing the poster above mine's "drag name"..... no posting on threads speculating about the football player's "bulge" during the Super Bowl.... no more gym lockerroom threads - or giving a blowjob to the sleeping straight dude threads..... no more aimlessly posting on NJQT's latest Texas Death Row Inmate Pulls Out Eye, Eats It -type thread.......

    Poor Star........Infestor.
    Dunno.....the reason either.
    I always punked him out in Public and on the forum.
    A week off from LPSG Politicizin' might drive him over the edge i fear. It's his entire life!
    I Will be closely monitoring Kentucky for a crazed gun-man on a Democrat/LIBTARD shooting rampage.
    Don't worry Star......I'll still be here for you when you come back{and you know you will} even though you hate me and think i'm a psycho.

    I highly highly doubt it was because of his opinion. Probably just choice of words. Perhaps (and I'd hope) it was something he was warned before on.

    Would be kinda good to know why, so as a reminder for the rest of us of what crosses the "gray area" (grey area for Spoiled Princess). There are a few actions / terminology that can result in a swift banning. Just curious... hope it wasn't some crybaby influencing the mods. That'd be kinda weak.

    How do you know? What was the occurrence over, Flashster?

    Kotchanski, sorry if I came across as insinuating anything. I only mentioned it because I happen to notice the two new posters were apparently immediately banned after making harmless posts. I assume they were found to be underage or something. I don't remember who they are though. Just found their posts reading a bunch of threads.

    My apologies. I think the Mods do a great job.

    Uh huh Flashy.

    Specifics need I guess, though I thought bi_n_social's comments are more "flamer" than StarInvestor's were.

    I butted heads with SI over meaning. With bi_n_unsocialable, you have direct racist comments, and hints at many others, most of it all phrased in rhetorical form, so there's no grasp of a rebuttal.


    When 1BiGG1 was on the board, I thought he was drifting into obsessive compulsive sociopathic behavior. Maybe he excused himself know it. Dunno. He can answer if he reads this. Might be interesting as to why.

    And "Star" was banned for exactly?
