He already said it was over.
he is IP banned, we did all we could... i'm sorry...
he cant even post in the RC
or make an alt
I didn't know they could do that... That must suck
That's a bummer.
R.I.P Lankist and ME Paint Adventures.
That must have been some serious racism.
Could this thread be locked and stickied alongside the first one then?
Could someone link me to the post/thread that got Lankist banned? :(
This is disappointing
RIP Lankist. May your avatars be graced with Aviators for years to come. :emo:
Lankist is dead, long live the aviators.
Fucking hell I loved that guy.
I wonder if he does this so he doesn't have to do the comic.
I don't get it, why was he banned so thoroughly? I read the banned post and it wasn't that bad, I've seen much worse get a week ban, is this some kind of conspiracy?
it's a cover up guys
Obviously Greeman is not a fan of Mass Effect and the attention being drawn to it basically threw sand in his vagina.
no offense to greeman of course
Hey, shouldn't we be keeping all talk of Lankist's ban to the discussion thread, and keep this thread clean for his assured, swift return?
Doomish that was awesome. Also Radiosquid that avatar is awesome.
Eh, the mod hate won't help any. Pissing 'em off certainly won't bring Lankist back.
Simple TOS violation and they banned him to show that their TOS had teeth. Considering how popular Lankist was it's actually a crazy strong message that even the super popular posters can be banned due to a TOS violation.
However, ip-permabanning for something that is less racist than most of the crap I hear on a regular basis on damn near anything on the internet and clearly satirical is a little overboard and silly.
Also, the action seems to have influenced Lankist's decision to discontinue the comic, as it appears, because he sure as hell could have simply picked up and moved it to any other forum site, I mean, for chrissakes they're not going to cross reference other sites to dig up posts and re-ban him from something random.
Unfortunately the lulz was killed, yet again, by dumb rule over-enforcement. It's not like anyone was horribly upset by Lankist's "evil, evil post" and, well, it's the bloody internet. It's not like someone puts a gun to your head and tells you to be offended. It's pretty easy to choose not to be offended by something like that. I mean I'm a half white, half Arab, American and I sometimes run into posts being flagrantly disrespectful to "fat lazy white Americans" or "terrorists" and I just sit back and laugh at some of the dumb crap people say. Mods are just protecting people's interests and making sure people don't get offended, even though it's one of the stupidest concepts I've ever seen among anything, forums or real life. It protects people who let themselves get butthurt over dumb crap like e-personal attacks or e-sweeping generalizations.
R.I.P. ME2 MS Paint Misadventures. It was a fun ride until something so incredibly dumb killed it. Here's hoping that Lankist finds it within his aviators' heart to continue this somewhere else and at least contract a mole to post a link to it here.
Edit - Yes, I created this account simply to post this.
Aw damn. It was a good Adventure, probably the best I've seen so far.
Gotta don my aviators in respect
I am terribly saddened by this tragedy. It's a shame Lankist decided to stop the comics all together.
yeah, what a pussy, he should have manned up and made his own website for it and raked in the cash, fucking moron.
this is why his parents died.
They may take our Lankist, but they will never take...
Oh shit he was permad... Damn, now who's facepunch lawyer.
Let us establish a legal fund and hire a facepunch lawyer.
Indeed here's :10bux:
you cheapskates, lankist's liberation is worth it!
Well fine here's :20bux:
We almost have enough money to hire a back alley lawyer!
But i only have 2000 left!
I've spent too much for this to fail!
