With a blank account and now avatar or pictures, even I find that slightly suspicious. Regardless of how many years your been on here. Seriously, standing up for a friend is cool, and commendable too. However, if she was doing it repeatedly, it's no surprise she was perma-banned.
Links to other sites as spam is pretty much bannable on MOST websites anyway. That's kinda common knowledge.
I find this "perma-ban" to be a bit severe although strictly stated in the etiquette policy
So wait, it was clearly stated that such things would get your friend banned, and still your friend posted that link? Guess what that means? The warning WAS given in the policy that is very well available for all to read. If you choose not to heed the warning there, you get what you deserve The admin don't have to tell you, because the fact that your friend is perma-banned should tell you their answer.
Well, she broke the rules. That much is certain. But that IS a very bad offense even though you may not think so. I personally think that is absolutely disgusting to even want to advertise such content in the first place. There are underage people on this site, and people who do not want to see that.
Also, consider the sheer amount of complaints that the admins are getting every day. Especially about how people complain about suicide girls advertisements, the amount of por- I mean distasteful artistic nudity, on the site, etc. If your friend added a link to MORE of that, of course there's no mercy.
Your friend should have known better. But I suppose you are good friend for standing up for them, but this is not the battle for you to fight.
Yeah, but some people have alts that are sometimes older than their main account. Some people jump accounts, etc. Regardless of who is right, you have to admit, this thread is stupid. If I ran this site, I wouldn't ban people for linking to goatse, but I don't make the rules. . . . so it should be obvious why this person was banned. Kinda stupid, but rules are rules.
