Ahh, but we offer something those other forums he flounced away from did not. We actually engage with him. We give him attention, something he seems to have trouble getting without first buying people a few rounds of booze.

That is an excellent point I hadn't considered.

Well, his FB message to me was fairly innocuous along the lines of "Why wont you answer me?" style of thing. It has not occurred to him that while my FB account has existed for years, I don't do anything with it or even much check it.

And once again the point is driven home as to why we can't have nice things.

Ok, that’s a neat trick. He managed another Rule 8 violation while suspended, earning himself a ban. Any details on how he managed that? (PM requested if public posting is not acceptable.)

For the record, the moderators responded and yes, posting portions of any Facebook conversations with him would be seen as posting by proxy, although they have, in their wisdom and patience, offered to review such content through PM to offer a decree on specific posts. As he hasn’t responded to me on Facebook I doubt this will be much of an issue anyway.

Careful. Being banned doesn’t mean he can’t read the thread. Now he’ll claim you as a follower who acknowledges him as their mother.

He is a God after all. So put it outside the door. If Santa and the toothfearie can collect, surely our divine Mother can?
