Save Eric Lunston!

Recommended Posts

Mods,Respectfully, I must disagree with your decision to ban Eric Lunston from the forum system. While I agree with locking the thread (http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=121&topic_id=206094&mode=full), which I found to be an enjoyable and humourous parody of several recent threads, I think banning Eric for that is excessive, and I ask that you reconsider that decision.Best,sg

Howdy,Ditto. The original posting was satire; not malicious.

I agree Scott. I really doubt that the intent of Eric's post was to provoke anyone. We sometimes need a bit of levity around here. How 'bout it Tom? Let the guy back in.Doug

I suspect that the banning might be the culmination of other events, but the thread doesn't reflect that...can we get some more info?Best,sg

Save Eric: bring your spades and buckets now. Banning him from the system is way over the top, surely, fellas? Daily, I wade through nasty flames in what should be useful threads, where people are unable to keep a civil virtual tongue, and I don't see them banned. All Eric has done , whoever he is, is to make an attempt at humour here. You'd have to be having a particularly bad day to see it otherwise.Uh oh. That'll be me gone now then.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/newlogo.jpg

Very good suggestion !!!!!If even the irony of the FSMUD-post (which I enjoyed very much) isn't allowed, where is this forum heading to ???Or is there another reason for banning him (which was NOT explained) ?It would seem more appropriate to lock/delete all these silly FS Water type-of-posts instead.Which was probably the the reason for Eric's parody.Rob Barendregt

That was a funny thread. I laughed. I don't think it was ban worthy and I don't think going to other sections of this forum and telling everyone he got banned was particularly classy. If he has a history, then ban him for what he did then. Not for a humorous thread that wasn't hurting anyone.

Personally, I totally agree with the banning. Not only was the post both pointless and weak in the humor dept., but it was also pretty obviously intended to start a fire.

I don't agree with the decison banning him either. He posted a humerous view of his opinion--I was laughing aloud as I read it. I didn't think it a basis for getting him banned and moreover the moderators made a public spectacle of it vs. just deleting the thread. There are members here who get away with far worse than Eric's thread on a regular basis. This is one of the few times I feel like speaking out vs. a decision made by the mods. If there is something deeper, I respect that and can understand why the mods did what they did--but publishing it to the entire community was bad form...Just my 2 cents...-John

You might find it funny if it was not directed at your company. He had a special *thing* for Active Sky and PMDG that he spent alot of time talking about and always in a negative light. All one has to do is do a search on his past posts and see what appears his agenda was. While technically he did not break the forum rules in his previous posts, he sure spent a lot of time stiring up arguments. When I told Tom to tell him to lay off me since he replyed daily in the PMDG forum right after my posts that had nothing to do with a certain other sim he would not leave me alone. Tom told me that Eric was not doing anything worth banning or removing his post regardless if he was engaging in behavior "I felt" was harassment. So, since Tom warned me not to post in like manner or I would find myself banned, I believe this same warning might have been given to Eric and maybe he choose to ignore this warning. One thing is for sure, Tom certainly does not take banning lightly so I repect Avsim's choice in this matter. Best Wishes,[h4]Randy J.

Actually it was probably Eric Lunston's funniest post. Too bad that probably his intentions were far from 'pure'. I followed last 30 days (or so) of his activity here and 90% of his posts had a 'snake' behind them. When he was not trying to be so funny he lied through his teeth. Whether his real name is Eric Lunston was even under suspicion. Some (many) agree with me. No, I am not shedding any tears for him. *:-*Michael J.

Indeed, John. Take a look at the posters who disagree vs. those that do agree with his banning. That was a little quick on the trigger, Allensworth.And Skorna? We're all impressed that you know something that we don't, but your post was meaningless.

I have moved and locked this thread for what I can only hope are obvious reasons.
