    Default What happened while I was gone this evening?!

    My family went over to my grandmother's house for the traditional New Year's Day dinner of pork and sauerkraut. I came home, got onto Coth, and I see that Mildot has been banned. Now, I know he said some controversial things on this board, but I am wondering what finally got him banned?

    Glad.

    I really did not particularly care for anything that poster had to say.

    mildot had a penchant for suggesting violence as a solution to many if not most conflicts or disagreements. A bit disturbing at times. I have to suspect that this was a factor in his banishment.

    Wow, I have been so tied up with the fitness stuff, I didn't see that. I wonder what pearl of wisdom finally earned him that honor?

    There are many possibilities.
    One, just guessing, he could have been an alter for some already banned poster and the Moderators just found out who it was?

    This begs, not being horse related, how long before it is closed?
    Why not ask on the Off Topic forum?

    Aw man, I missed the drama again! Now I'm really curious. If anybody knows what happened please share!

    I'd like to know what happened, as well. I didn't share much similarity with him, but Mildot certainly added a, well, "manly man with a gun" viewpoint to discussions here. I don't think he was a previously banned poster, though.

    Mods? Hello? Can you share what happened?

    It may have been this threat as one poster said she was going to report him and then he was gone:

    I for one will not miss him. He gave me the creeps, between his COTH handle and his obsession with guns and shooting people and anything else...

    On second thought, perhaps this thread was the final straw:

    You mean besides his usual demeanor and insults, like those above?

    not that he was my BFF or anything, barely knew the guy.

    But please tell me people don't get banned for being unpopular with the posters who are liberals.

    Sure it was weird that his solution to most problems was "shoot it." But after you got used to that, it was kinda hilarious to always read that as an answer to *everything." Saddle doesn't fit? Shoot it! Didn't like him, but he was funny. (well maybe not funny to the overly-emotional)

    But I didn't read any threats and didn't see any "edited by Mod" where a threat was removed. he exchanged insults with 7HL...and used the same junior high taunts on 7HL that 7HL has been using on everyone on here for ages now. And 7HL is still around.

    Other than that he called some posts names...not posters as much as calling their opinions stupid or whatever. he gets reported for that when the people complaining are getting just as uptight about the same political subjects?

    Huh...guess it's damned dangerous being a non-liberal around here.

    I wonder if he was sending PMs or something. I kinda want to email him and ask, but I'm a little scared to! Of course, he could have given us a great new CoTHism. Instead of SSS, we could just Mildot something!!

    There has to be more to it than that, because several right-leaning posters have said much stronger things on past Off-Topic days! Until a Mod tells us, we are just guessing here. Misty Blue--come on now...don't blame us bleeding heart liberal/tree huggers for this!

    However Mildot might not have qualified for that last S...not exactly a quiet fellow.

    Oh! Rustbreeches--that is a wonderful use of Mildot's legacy here A perfect memorial to his rather violent answer to many problems. He often reminded me of my 8th grade boys and their preference for 'shooting' each other with their hands

    Nah, no hard feeling for those of you who love your tree hugging.

    I'm just hoping like heck that not having the popular political opinion on an equine BB is cause for banning if enough people complain.

    I never saw any posts from him that were more offensive or shocking than a bunch of other posters who are still around. Personally, I found him fairly humorous. But then again, I never took him all that seriously.

    This. I found him humorously offensive in a TOSH.O way. Not starting a petition to get him back or anything, but never thought he was dangerous.

    <Like>

    I have seen way worse posted by people who are still on this board IMHO. Anyway how do you know he was banned. Is there a List of the Banned somewhere for people to consult? Just asking.
