Needler420 was messaged about a post that violated several rules. His responses were unacceptable and contained threats that would impair the ability of the staff to function properly. It became apparent to the staff that his continued membership would be detrimental to the forum and could therefore no longer be accommodated.

Banned for repeatedly breaking the rules and his attitude towards staff and other members.

His hideous avatar didnt help either :)

Sad to see a member get banned. But I suppose it was for the best. Good work admins, thanks for keeping the forums safe. :yeah:

I will not bring up specifics. I will just say it was not deleted. It doesn't need to be brought up again in any way. He made comments that were derogatory to a specific member. The post was deemed rude, off topic, and an attempt to initiate conflict. Upon contacting him repeatedly, he showed no remorse or concern about the broken rules. Also he exhibited a pattern of negative comments toward other members. Anyhow, no more since he is BANNED ;)

I wanted to clarify, if I sounded like I didn't want people discussing his being banned, that isn't what I intended. I meant I didn't want to discuss the initial offending post again.

Understandable - I was just curious because he seemed to be an overall good member. It's unfortunate that his membership ended that way, but personal attacks on anyone shouldn't be tolerated.

I'm sorry to hear that it came to this but if you gave him a chance to change his ways and he didn't then you guys did what you had to do.

I think it was a good move. I have seen comments he has posted both on here and on youtube, and he just seems to have a terrible attitude, and just is a rude person in general. Good call admins :yeah:
