it's one thing to argue with people (that's just a part of life) but it is a whole another matter to racially attack a member. should a forum member who make racial comment, should he/she be banned?

Edit: the link has beed deleted

I don't think it's hard to say at all. If you break it down it's quite easy to see the offensiveness.

translates to this

Cut and dry in my book.

it was uncalled for and 100x worse than when he complained to me because i started a p2p thread and how immoral and such i was and how i lied about my "real" intentions for using p2p. 100% bannable

This thread should be locked. I see nothing good coming out of it.

It's gonna be locked, but comments like that deserve a ban, even if it is temporary (like 24 hrs).

I think that tyler was completely out of line to say that. This is just another instance of how he has contributed nothing to this thread, with the exception of pointless piracy comments. I dont feel he should be banned for this, but I do think it shows the kind of person he is. We have the right to say whatever we wish, but saying things like what he said is rude, and he she think about what he says before he says it.
