He last posted in August 2020 - I think the old mods were still around until Nov 20 at least - and recall him getting a number of one / three month bans under the old regime.

I remember Halibut himself claiming that he got banned a few times, and I'm sure he did, in his early days on the forum, but I sparred with Halibut for a good 6 or so years, and not once did I ever notice his avatar picture missing, which was a sign that you were on a ban. The guy became untouchable under last regime.

Feel better now?

I'm confused, I thought snowflakes had to be lefties born since the turn of the millennium.

What protection did he have?

 

And what has it been replaced with?

He simply got away with things that others didn't. He was looked after on here.

I remember Halibut being on a couple of 'enforced holidays'

I don’t recall him getting any special treatment when I was part of the moderating team.

Hmmm... :huh:


Maybe he was treated 'fairly' by the moderating team then...

 

... and it was everyone else who had a different opinion to him that was given the 'special treatment' ? ;)

LOL. Just the other day I freely admitted on here that I've used this forum on and off under different usernames since 2005.

Thank goodness you're no longer part of the moderating team.

I've noticed that Halibut has cleared off now that the forum is under new ownership and the protection he enjoyed has gone. 

To be fair Halibut stopped posting months before the new ownership. I fear Halibut is no longer with us because he most certainly would have contributed after Donald Trump lost the US Presidential election. I hope Halibut is still alive and if as I suspect he's no longer with us, RIP

Yes folk have an annoying habit of dying, I now hate to meet someone that I have not seen for years, after the initial pleasure we both then inform each other of old pals that are no longer with us, that’s just death I suppose.
