The forum will be better without him. He was asked to cool it on many occasions and had caused a lot of locked threads. And locked threads are rare here.

Actually there was a guy named PersonOfInterest who was worse than Burt.

I was only aware of the Israel issue and the drug legalization issue. I don't frequent the Random thread, so I don't know what goes on there.

Again, the idea that someone would try to make meaningful edits and then purposely troll the forums is a bit farfetched. He's at least guilty of having poor social skills.

Actually he didn't make any edits on the wiki until he was banned on the forums the first time. Which I ended up banning him from there, for being a smart ass. (MT2008 banned him on the forums)

Wouldn't that just give him incentive to NOT make meaningful edits?

It was only a temporary ban. Making bad edits, would have made it permanent.

If he were just a troll, why would he care if he was permanently banned? I would think it'd be easier just to go troll another board rather than try to get back on everyone's good graces.

Does he insult people? Does he personally attack anyone? (Again, I haven't really follow the Randomness thread, so I don't know.) From what I can tell, he just zealously defends his own unpopular viewpoints in a somewhat rational way. (Viewpoints I don't agree with, mind you.)

I don't know the man. I've never interacted with him beyond this board, nor do I wish to. But he never struck me as being a bad egg, just someone who someone doesn't know when to shut up. I'm sure you all know people like that in your life, and you know not all of them are bad people.

I think it IS pretty significant that this thread exists. Neither PoI, Sillybunz, ReelViagra4Cheep or any other user looking at a ban ever got this sort of attention. They just got outright banned.

POI got a thread too, his was "POI is gone" with no ? mark, unlike Burt's. Sillybunz wasn't a frequent poster, just came in to bitch about certain firearms, then got a real bad attitude when we questioned him.

ReelViagra4Cheep? those are spambots, why would we make a thread about them.
