    I don't think Mezo, would have really bothered to obtain a noob account. I maybe wrong. ADV has gone down hill in last couple of years and why quite a lot Aussies have left

    Perma- ban or not

    Wow.:cry Mezo getting banned is a shame. I looked forward to learning more about his builds and read this thread on a daily basis.

    In reference to the first quote, by an Aussie, I said if he sees nothing wrong with the racist post others on this site did not like it and reported it. I discussed this with the Mod Squad and Aussie mods weighed in as well. It was decided the right course of action is to punt the comments and give Mezo a vacation from this site. He attempted a fake noob registration and the vacation was extended. He doesn't want to come back, that's his choice.
    Again, we will not tolerate racist comments here.

    p.s. Portraying Australia's aboriginal people as welfare sponging, thieving, lazy drunks and displaying a photo of a disheveled aborigine juxtaposed next to a dapper Touareg man might have been comical to some, but when inmates report such a post, we evaluate the complaint and take action when necessary. This is no different than stereotyping or using racial epithets to denigrate Africans, Asians, Arabs, Jews, Italians, Germans, or other ethnic groups. This thread is now closed. When Mezo's ban expires, should he wish to return to this thread, he may contact me and ask me to re-open it.
