OK - Here is the deal:
Ordinarily, I would not make public the details behind someone being banned from the site but I think this situation warrants an explanation.
Gerbear was banned for threatening another poster with actual physical violence in a PM to another member. That threat was reported to the mods. The mods discussed it and it was agreed this warranted a full ban.
Gerbear reappeared as OskieG and began posting again (same IPs, same content, tone and style of writing). The more experienced mods told me that this had happened in the past and that some members had come back, apologized, and been accepted back. Members here made an issue of Gerbear’s return so I blocked OskieG from posting but offered him a path back to full membership - apologize for the threat. I did not have a response to that message. So now he appears to be back as Jenny (sp?).
My take on this is that we can’t have people threatening each other, getting banned, and just coming back with a new email. That undermines the whole point of the rules. So, I do not know that all three are one in the same person, but the IPs are close enough etc. that I think it is the same guy.
Was Gerbear goaded and trolled - I think he was. Does he love the Cats - absolutely. OskieG and Jenny have been model members so I know he’s capable of regulating himself and probably regrets losing his cool.
As Niagaraguy wisely put to me in an unrelated message, we are all Ti-Cat fans so why can’t we get along?
My suggestion to Gerbear/Oskie/Jenny is contact one of the mods - be ready to apologize and I think the member you PM’d will accept that apology and we can all move on.
