    While I am not absolutely committed to an opinion on it, I'm not sure that I agree with this emerging movement to see him as some kind of pet, a tame troll, the jester we like to laugh at, cap and bells and all, the bear we like to bait.

    First of all, I think it's a patronizing attitude, and more for our benefit than his.

    Second, while it seems a source of endless diversion now, I am also not sure that it would remain so upon prolonged exposure. The novelty may wear thin.

    Have you read the short story, "The Monkey's Paw", Mrs. P? The moral it illustrates is: be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.
    Pretty much this.

    I think when you call Michelle Kwan a "competent artisan" your days here are numbered

    Native speakers often spell words according to the pronunciations since they learn to speak before they learn to write. They have more confusion with similarly sounding words such as there/they're/their, your/you're, its/it's and very interestingly "of" instead of "'ve" like AUDIT did and caught by CanadianSkaterGuy, I.e. he wrote "could of" instead of "could have" or "could've"' all the more funny because his sentence was "You could of used the right word,"

    Why is AllYouDoIsTalk banned and sky-fall and PTF are still around? I am beginning to enjoy his/her posts. I find AYDIT a hilarious troll. And actually beginning to like him/her. At least insofar, he/she has not shown any mean spirited comments like some posters who are still around.

    Seems "talk" is a dangerous word to have in your username. Previous member who got banned was "Let's Talk". Granted, they behaved similarly, so maybe it's not a coincidence...

    Yeah, but their screennames were rather ironic. let's_talk didn't actually want to discuss things and just spewed whatever they wanted. And AllYouDidIsTalk should have been AllIDoIsTalk, given the nature of his posts.

    That's was I thought- maybe a new account under AYDIT, just for mostly rambling stream-of-consciousness trollism.

    Has dorispulaski not ever said lately that double IDs are not allowed in GS? (I heard that mods can see user's IP address.)
    This might be a reason AYDIT is banned. Of course might not.

    And yesterday's his 'skater *** is a homosexual' post(deleted now) might have been added to reason banned.
