Can we like, take a vote on this? And that's kind of one of those lines you never expect to read.
SorO may be a dick, but he's our dick. And you shouldn't cut your dick off.
Though in a way, I suppose I can back this up. I mean, I used to be a huge dick in these forums myself. SorO is pretty tactless, but I don't think he's actively malicious.
Thing is, you greatly improved. Soro didn't. He actually kept getting worst. And consider yourself lucky you didn't end in his direct line of fire, because he did actively start to get extremely malicious.
As the mods pointed out, it wasn't a sudden thing, it was the piling up of years of ignoring multiple warning from the people he directly attacked.
And if his ban is revoked, he'll only become worst. He'll consider that there was absolutely nothing with his behavior after all and only keep escalating it even faster.
