    Sadly that's what happens when people choose to ignore the rules. :\

    Pretty ridiculous ban, mods. Hawk didn't even use it in an offensive way. It's just a figure of speech. Use some common sense when banning people, huh? Rethink this.

    LOL at figure of speech.

    He's had plenty of chances. His infraction list in his profile proves this. Don't tell us how to do our jobs please.

    He's had numerous warnings, this wasn't a knee-jerk reaction. He accumulated 3 infractions for various broken rules and that post so happen to be his third offense. It doesn't matter if "That's retarded" or "That's gay" are common, we ask users not to use them here. Simple as that.

    Yeah. You currently have 2 infractions. So if you do it, you're at 3 and that means you're banned. I mean...I wouldn't do it but knock yourself out if you want to. -___-

    Does LPA like driving out some of their most active users for doing petty things that had no harm intended? Seems like a fast way to kill a site. Seriously, we can't be accountable for how people feel towards the things we say when those people take things way overboard or the wrong way.

    Now, Polychromatic was a different story. That is totally justified. This banning of Hawk might be in your eyes, but it's far from just. Do you ban people for saying "fat" or "ugly"? Because those words offend me. I don't see anybody caring about that. And there really is no difference from this instance.

    We don't enjoy it, travz21 but rules are rules. We don't hold any member above the rules because they're well-liked because that means being unfairly biased. Again, Hawk was not banned for that comment alone. This is not a question of ethics but simple logic. Break the rules three times and you're out of here. Hawk broke the rules three times and has been warned on numerous occasions, that's being more than fair.

    And sure, if someone calls you ugly or fat or whatever, they'll most likely receive an infraction for being disrespectful. However the context is what matters most. Using "fat" or "ugly" as an observation (again, when not used in an insulting manner) is fine. Using "gay" or "retarded" as a way to say something is bad, negative or in derogatory fashion is insulting in general.

    At the end of the day we have rules here. Any member who joins this site is asked to read the rules and ultimately agree to uphold them if they decide to post here. We've been incredibly lenient with Hawk and reminded him time and time again to watch what he says. He didn't take the rules on board or he simply chose to ignore our warnings.

    It's regrettable because I genuinely don't think any of his posts involved malicious intent, but at the end of the day it's not fair to the majority of members who obey the rules that we give someone more chances than most. Ultimately, Hawk had to go.

    The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver.

    Sounds like an easy fix for me, the permissions probably got hosed when I restored it from the backup. Lemme see if I can fix it from my phone.
