    <@chaos|superprogramming> leech lyfe Mekkah July 15th, 2007 31 Days August 15th, 2007, ~07:00 PM 31 Days, 0 Hours [Lift Ban] you need to work on your posting quality
    <@chaos|superprogramming> im pretty sure you cant do that
    <@chaos|superprogramming> and by pretty sure, i mean you cant do that
    <+Hazerider> well he's an idiot anyway but
    <@chaos|superprogramming> the only people allowed to bypass the infraction system are administrators
    <@chaos|superprogramming> but im leaving the ban because of surgoisafag.org

    obviously, malicious activity like flooding warrants an immediate ban but seriously. you can't do that.

    Aeolus did it a while ago for Pyr0 e4protector and a few others, though that was after consideration. Alright, sorry.

    The bans you are talking about were put into place because of the ban request thread that was active at the time when it was still nearly impossible to accumulate enough infraction points to get banned. Things have changed.

    At any rate, read.

    Another exception to the 'no bypassing the infraction system' rule is obviously posting Harry Potter spoilers!

    speaking of which, i really, really, hope even dumb joking which is false should deserve an immediate ban...i don't want to read my 800 page novel thinking neville kills harry or something.

    I will be in Kentucky playing footsie with chaos this weekend, so when I get home and start reading a lot of people will already be done. I'll be avoiding the internet until I can say the same.

    quoting because yes, if you or anyone sees this in firebot or wherever feel free to ban for it instantly. drawing the "you dont joke about a bomb in an airport terminal/airplane" corollary may seem a little silly considering the enjoyment of a "children's book" isn't quite on the level of national security, but the idea is pretty much exactly the same: oh haha what a funny joke you sure tricked us get the fuck out of here
