loltroll82 and JohnFaa, two people who have been rather abusive, not only to me but to others, have been permanently banned from dA. Like in the same -day- permanently banned from dA.

I really thank everyone who stepped in to help out individuals who were being bullied or harassed by either of these two. I've been subject to spam, abuse, and harassment from some other people, but at least getting these two banned should send a message - we don't tolerate abuse or bullying around these parts.

However, Chimpeetah, a brand new friend of mine, was also permanently banned. ;-; I was a bit shocked, because while they were mean in JohnFaa's deviations in their attitude talking towards me, they were very nice and thoughtful and civil when we were having our conversations. I wonder why this person was banned?

But JohnFaa, and loltroll82, if you come back - and I know both of you have alternative accounts - I want you to know that I forgive you and I'm willing to work things out. I'm willing to talk civilly and come to a compromise of sorts, even though I've no idea what either of you have/had against me. I'm willing to talk.

Chimpeetah, if you come back, we must still be friends! LOVE YOU!!!

Peace out, ya'll!

JohnFaa is your Marxist Stalinist type from what I've heard from him. After all, we shouldn't argue with fanatics for they have no humor. I've never heard about this loltroll guy either. P.S., trolls are NOT friends of atheists.

The loltroll guy and I exchanged apologies, so we're all good.

Trolls are just trolls and aren't friends with much of anyone while they're trolling. XD

JohnFaa got banned? Why am I not surprised. Truly an exemplar of his cause.

Yeah, that was awhile back. I heard he somehow managed to come back to dA, but was permanently banned again. He must've gotten a new IP address or something, I don't know. Either way, I hope he eventually changes his ways. Anti-theists are just not nice people.

Which individual? loltroll82 and I have since come to good terms, but I have not heard any word of JohnFaa. Needless to say, he was an aggressive anti-theist, one who wanted to massacre all religious people, particularly Christians. He spent a lot of time harassing, bullying, and bashing a lot of different people, including me, just because of our religion or beliefs.

Wow! :o Thats new. Every time I've spoken to JohnFaa, he seemed like a nice guy giving useful tips and constructive criticism. However I happen to know he is banned from various other sites he was once part of.

I am sure he was capable of being a very nice, pleasant person when he wanted to be. It is unfortunate, but because he consistently chose inappropriate behavior, I think dA was in the right to ban him permanently. I can't say what he did at those other sites, but I would not be surprised if they banned him for the same reasons. I hope that he will take this time to re-evaluate how he presents himself, his beliefs, and how he treats others who are different/believe differently than him. That's all that I can do for him at this time.

Well said. Ps I didn't know bans were permanent!

As far as I'm aware it was similar behaviour on thses other sites, but I know that the members of Zeta boards are considering lifting the ban on him.

"Well said. Ps I didn't know bans were permanent!"

Some bans are, and some aren't. I think the temporary bans are called suspensions. But he was permanently banned from what I heard.

"As far as I'm aware it was similar behaviour on thses other sites, but I know that the members of Zeta boards are considering lifting the ban on him."

I would encourage them to do so, if he's been banned for a great deal of time. I believe in giving a person at least two chances, if not more. If his behavior is unchanged, then they could at least say that they tried.

Oh, I see Faa seems to be a problem in all corners of the internet. I've banned the little smartmouth twice on a website I moderate. First time for being a general asshole, 3 more of his backup accounts were banned by the site owner, and once again after he reregged (he was already on a week long ban for being an asshole, I just never unbanned him).

Other names of his to look out for:
Chaoayanga
Mullerornis
Dasornis
Diogenornis (his name on Hell Creek Forums)
Pteranotropi (his name on Primal Carnage Forums)

I don't allow people to link to deviations posted by banned people, especially when said person was banned on account of harassment and bullying.

I said what I meant. It did not contain anything that advocated suicide. Plus advocating suicide doesn't mean advocating bullying anyway. Two different subjects.

"There's no rule against it by DeviantArt's standards, I say you're just trying to hide it."

I really don't care. My page, I will enforce additional rules as I see fit. Besides, I do believe that particular comment is still visible where it was posted.

"That deviation called out on a lot of hypocrisy."

No, it did not. You're claiming things you can't back with facts.

"Either way, both subjects are unacceptable and justifying either because of the presence of LGBT people is considered hate speech and can be a reportable offense."

Please show me what I have done that is so wrong. I have even talked with a lesbian woman who agrees that I've said and done nothing wrong, yet JohnFaa has blown everything out of proportion.

So quote and explain what I said that is so wrong to you. If you can't give me a solid basis for your accusations, I've no reason to listen to you. Especially since there is an LGBT person who says the opposite of you.

Chimpetaah is disappointed that he was banned from the site, especially when he apologized and realized he was in the wrong for some if the things he said/felt. He's not blaming anyone, and realizes that he messed up but was shocked after the air was cleared. If you can please make a petition to allow him to come back because he loves the site, and the people here including you ;)

JohnFaa's alternate: "Why the hell was Chimpeetah banned?"

You: "They will pay a bloody price for this in their kidneys!!"

Him: "Eventually they will."

You: "And then we'll all rejoice and feast on their meat!"

So you think killing people and cannibalism are okay, merely because we're of a different religion/opinion/world view than you?

Yey, someone thinks I'm serious with all this :D (good you haven't observed me joking with friends, intolerant cannibal wouldnĘt be the worst thing I would be then :D)
Personally, my (rather flegmatic) philosophy is "let it live, as long as it does not do a greater harm to anyone", thanks to this, and to the fact I hang out on DA just for relax, internet friends, fun and art, you won't see me anywhere bitching around on pointless controversial discussions, which can only upset both sides/factions.

As for that stalker girl who commented on this too, IDK what is Johnfaas name, its not Carlos (this guy would be quite offended if someone would mislead him with faa), and Johfaa is just guy I watch for years because of his science,biology and spec.evo. essays, not for his religionous ramblings. Honestly I'm quite surprised he haven't been already banned months or years ago.

Where I come from, it's a serious offense to even mention wanting to kill someone. It's not funny...

I've no idea, I really don't have a clue. All I know is JohnFaa was rude and abusive towards me, he's banned now, yet one of my other friends got banned, too. IDK how that works either, but whatever. They must've done -something- really wrong in order to get that kind of a sentence... perhaps something that I don't know about.

Yes... but I'll see what he has to say. Maybe it was a legitimate joke (a sick and twisted joke, but a joke) and he really didn't mean any harm by it... but I have a hard time seeing that as it was JohnFaa whom he was talking too.

That's what I was thinking... I still want to try to get Chimpeetah back, though, because we had just become friends. If it's not possible, then I guess that's all I can do.

But since JohnFaa has an alternative account, will we report that one as well, or no?

There's a way to make a petition? I've no idea how to do that. I'll have to poke around, but if you know of any way that I could do that, I'd appreciate it! I never reported him myself, so I feel a little bad that he ended up banned... like he just got caught up in between what was going on between me, others, JohnFaa, and who knows who else.

Maybe get some members to make it aware that he should be brought back. He only made one offense, and it was primarily because he got caught up in the actions of others. Maybe the member who reported him can help. He's just upset that he was able to get back to being in good spirits with everyone and thought he was exempt from his minor actions, and suddenly he's banned. He would make a new account but his primary issue is just fixing a wrong that was made, and an unfortunate ban due to a small slip up on his part. He's everyone's friend here :D

Well, even if I do make it aware to all of the members, what could we do? I was reading a long, and I know that he himself can plead with the dA staff for his ban to be removed. I remember, he can inquire about the reason for his ban, and then explain his side of the story. Mention that he is now on good terms with the people he was being mean towards, apologized and so forth. I wish I had links to our conversation so he could use that, but all I can say is that he needs to claim that and hopefully it goes well from there. Of everything I saw, it pretty much out right said that friends of the banned person can do nothing to help appeal the ban.

I don't see what you're doing there that warrants comparison. You're not doing anything malicious to -real- people; you're just making you're opinion known about a fake couple.

How is wanting to murder, harass, bully, and otherwise cause harm to a -real- person have anything to do with having a strong dislike for a particular pairing comprised of two -fake- characters?

Maybe I'm just missing something...
