They do it differently in the USA
Thought you might be amused by the moderator's tone when banning a right-wing troll from a US games forum:
I invited you here. I told you to tone your [-Censored-] down. I told you to discuss [-Censored-], not attack people. I vouched for you when you went off on your usual [-Censored-].
And this is how you repay it all. You're gone. [-Censored-] you. Bye.

Reading a few pages back on that thread it reminded me of the ebay forum of several years back, minus the swearing of course. Where it was common for a mod and a few sycophants to bait someone those views they didn't agree with. And when they replied using language similar to the mods they were banned.
Even though I saw much of this going on I wasn't sure it was deliberate planned action. Until I saw the recent news where six "ex" employees have been charged with aggressive cyber stalking. Funeral wreaths, bloody pig masks. tampering with witnesses etc. They only stopped just short of a horses head in the bed.
This promises to have far reaching repercussions for ebay as their one time boss was Wenig who only recently left with a multi million dollar .......... some would say golden handshake but many others would say something different.
