So after the radio show I felt good about it and was cool with squashing it. Then the guy who banned me posted this:"So when he made the two posts in two threads to his spam video, I'm like WTF? I had no idea if he was going to continue posting it. I started to wonder if that was really Daniel acting that stupid, acting with complete disregard of our policies or if someone from Poker Royalty had control of his account. So at 2am I made the call to temp-ban the account and then sort it out. I figured this could cause a storm so I immediately called Mason, who already knew of the previous two threads and let him know what I did and why. He concurred with the action.Several times in print and on QJ he stated "What am I, a child that needs a time out?" or something to that effect. I had thought not and had hoped he could figure out that we don't tolerate spam due to the infraction, then deletion of the 2nd thread. But his reaction to this whole affair over a 1 day slap on the wrist and his inability to figure out the obvious, makes me wonder."Here was my reply: Really? How socially inept are you? What made you think posting this would be a good idea after the radio show? Things were civil, now you want to go off insulting me AFTER things were squashed? Who do you people think you are "slapping people on the wrist" like school children? Get over yourself. I was actually totally comfortable with letting it slide, but then you go into a thread and insult me multiple times. Nice work genius. You really aren't very bright. Instead of APOLOGIZING for what you did, and making the SMART business decision, you provoke me further with this insulting post. The MAJORITY of your posters have half of a brain and understand that you handled this TERRIBLY. You got completely PWNED on the radio show, contradicted yourself several times, but instead of saying, "On second thought, maybe a ban wasn't the optimal decision" you still don't get it. You obviously never will if you choose to continue to publicly post insulting posts in your forum.
Yea, I was like WTF when I saw his post right after the QJ interview. FWIW, I thought you both had come to some resolution with regards to the entire situation and then it was like he decided to just completely ruin it by making that post.I wondered if you saw it, I was like OMG I hope Daniel didn't see this but sure enough you did. I really don't know what else to say except it was about the dumbest possible thing he could have done. I partly blame myself for not PMing him in hopes of getting it taken down. *sighs.
