Simply put this thread has been constructed to put forth a case that I believe is valid. I believe that Jomei was banned Unfairly and for several reasons that go against the whole rule system especially a certain claim that comes to mind which I will talk about later so let's get it out of the way.
Every member that's been around for the last few years should generally know who Jomei is, Jomei as we all should know was a Ex Mod turned Admin until early 2015 where he resigned his position as Admin and returned to being a Normal and simple Member, until he was banned at the very beginning of 2016 during the Leak "Scandal". (Oh that hurt to write) at the time of his ban he had just got to his Third Warning before he was suddenly Perma-Banned because what he was doing was apparently "so major" it required bypassing the remaining 3 warnings, something like that has only been ever reserved for Trolls and I don't feel like Jomei was a troll. and as I remember several reasons were given out in order to explain why he was banned and I've taken the task of actually going back and reading through the Mammoth amount of threads a little bit to refresh myself on them now I'll start off.
Reason #1: Because Of What He Said On Other Sites.
I personally find the board to have too much spam related topics. Counting toward post counts or not, they do take up room on the database. If they aren't adding value, I see little merit.
That's not why I acted, though.
In this case it's the old tap and dance of drama happening outside of the forums. These types of occurrences have been going on for a decade at some level. I have gotten myself involved at times, and it's a dead end. This is outside of our domain, and trying to validate claims from outside of the boards is not something any of the forum staff should be expected to do.
If you find yourself the victim of cyber bullying, be proactive. Unfriend them on Facebook, stop frequenting other forums that they post on, block them from Skype, remove them from What's App... whatever you have to do to get out of that unpleasant situation. If that unpleasantness drifts onto the Toho Kingdom forums, though, the forum staff will act. And harshly, regardless of position of those involved.
Do not take this as me or anyone else here condoning the actions. Taken at face value, I have lost respect for the people involved in the bullying. Realize, though, that you aren't entitled to the forum staff acting on venues outside of the site. If you have an issue with a user, please send us a link to the thread where they are causing an issue. Do not send us a picture of a post on Facebook or a chat. We can not be expected to police users for actions done outside of our site. I have had people yell at me for this. I realize tensions are high, but you need to remove yourself from those venues or report it to the service where it's occurring.
The Rules specifically state that despite what another person may/has done somewhere else he cannot be Banned here for it. yet what Jomei said on another site that being Tumblr was in part responsible for him being Banned from the forums because of blah, blah and that's totally against the rules of regardless of what he said he MAY end up doing or could do the Mods cannot ban him for it, UNLESS he does do it here but yet it was a reason why he was banned and it's totally against the rules and really if you look back you can see he was mostly joking around.
And plus he was Minority Report Level banned.
Reason #2: Baseless Fear Mongering.
As we all know during the Leaks and stuff tons of Fear Mongering was thrown around by all manner of people saying that the leaks and people using edited pictures as avatars would destroy this site "Do you want to see everything every one ever did over the years get destroyed?!" and much hubab was made over Toho saying thanks for not having the stuff here. and really nothing came out of it Toho never killed or sued a site for people posting avatars or leaked pictures they never took any legal action what so ever for anything like that but yet some people were in arms about this and it was another reason why he was banned now. I'm not saying that having that stuff here was "Right" or whatever I'm just simply saying all the hilarious Fox News level fear Mongering and poor actions were so over the top about NOTHING, maybe right to a degree about their actions and they DID in fact have the sites interests in mind but they were so off course.
Reason #3 "Because He Was A Admin"
This was the stupidest thing of all (No Offense Intended To Anyone) it was a totally made up rule to justify the action this had never been enforced, since, before or ever will it be enforced again. it was totally made up this magical rule never before mentioned in the rules, if so than CZ should have been removed immediately following that action which we don't bring up if not banned outright, but yet she just simply willingly resigned on her own volition and not because of any rules or because she had to do so. MM himself should be permenatley banned from this forum FOREVER basically considering how many times he has been a Mod, Admin and Site Staff, in fact he's still a Site Staff member so where does this rule apply? Answer it doesn't and shouldn't be counted because it never has been.
I mean come on ANYONE who has ever had the slightest interaction with MM knows he can be a total frigging Jerk! I mean just look at his Post Count it can't just apply to one person it has either apply to everyone or none at all.
In short it's been a full year since he was banned, so I think he more than learned his lesson and considering he served TK admirably as Mod and Admin for several years I feel that heshould be given a second chance. as all the good stuff he has done outweighs whatever insignificant minor thing he did which really was just wearing Leaked Picture avatars which is something super minor.
So yeah, this isn't a demand or anything just my piece and others I presume you can lock this thread. Sure, but really for what?
For MM I really don't have to say anything we all know MM he'll be back anyway! MM always gets unbanned sure maybe a year abscense or two but he'll back just like Frosty The Snowman a jerkish Frosty but Frosty the same.
Thus I propose a "Parole System" For them. Jomei could have a 1-3 Warning parole for a whole year (whatever you all decide on) after the year and if he is still here than he can be taken off it and returned to the original Warning System same for MM.
So Long Winded post ends now.
