    Was bansheebot seriously banned and all his posts deleted? I can only surmise it is related to his comments vs Chad. This smacks of hms vs Pogue. :evil:

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    If so that's a serious crime against the community! I hope that there's a way that we can find out more.

    Do individual mods have the authority / tools to erase us? Seems at the very least that such a decision should be run through the Cabal. Ugh.

    hms vs Pogue? I don't know that story.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    Looks like the entire trade thread where Jason and Chad exchanged words yesterday has been deleted. Every post.

    Conjecture, anyone?

    Just looked through blood guts toys thread and posts where people quoted him are still there but his posts are gone. Maybe he requested that..? I mean even scumbagandsuperstars posts are still here after his ban.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    Damn... that thread did disappear.
    Last thing I saw was banshee asking why Chad was a mod. Is that a ban-worthy offense to question "authority", or did things get ugly after that?

    So Banshee gets banned for voicing his opinion and Martoy is fine even though he mentioned he sells to whoever is willing to pay the most? What a load of crap.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    Even if it did, what does that have to do with Jason's years of posting about everything else under the sun? The loss of his picture posts alone is tragic, and the majority of his public snark was spot on - what, we shouldn't give shit to bullies, homophobes and flippers now? His posts, more than many here, showed a history of someone who was actively engaged in both the hobby and the community. Whatever the reasons that led to the complete censure of his time here, this situation sucks.

    I'm glad to hear that 'this is all being looked into and sorted.' Please keep us apprised, James.

    Please don't be mistaken toothaction. I'm seriously shocked and dismayed by this news as well.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    I missed whatever verbal spat went down between these members. I'm assuming it just escalated to point of no return. Doesn't look like Chad is a mod anymore either. I've had a battle or two with Jason over the years but he was definitely a good member of the community and a serious collector. No speculating BS in his love for these toys like some people. I'd never want to see him go over some silly misunderstanding or just a heated debate. We worked our differences out and you certainly never want to see an abuse of power. Banning someone is serious, and should be a decision made by more than one and not in a heated moment. Just my 2 cents...

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    The very fact that most were unaware tells me this spat must have been minor given the epic battles I have witnessed on SB. Granted eveyone should play fair, but tempers sometimes flare up since 'Hell hath no fury like a toy nerd scorned'.
    If he even wants back after this, I think Bansheebot has a long enough track record that he should be welcomed back.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    Something pretty close to:

    • J - Why are you a moderator?

      C - Yes, my name is in yellow.

      J - Riiiight, but I asked why you are a moderator, not 'Why, are you a moderator?'


      THE END.

    Scorching stuff, huh?

    edit: forgot the first question mark.

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    First of all, sorry to hear about all this drama. Secondly, what's up with this scumbagsandsuperstars cat? Not trying to dredge up the past or hi-jack this thread, but I was considering purchasing something from SXS and would not like to if there is something shady going on there. Thanks to anyone that replies and sorry if this post makes you angry.

    Banned for asking such a question? That really sucks.

    Bansheebot was always great to read here. Wtf, SB? WTF!?

    Re: Bansheebot banned??

    I'm actually blown away by this if this is true.


    Granted. I've asked the question about Chad before. He was a moderator of the Japan Toys forum but was never in that thread. Of all the active moderators who regulate and seemingly guide the board and move threads...There are really only 3-4 who do that and of those..I would say that James is pretty active in his role and does a great job.
