Post Re: RIP - Ruth Ginsberg
KindaSkolarly has been banned from BookTalk.org. As you all hopefully know I don't take banning lightly, especially the banning of someone who has contributed over 500 posts on our forums. But his posts have promoted conspiracies, violence, refuted claims and ignorance in general, so I am heeding the call of many valued active members to remove him from our forums before he does any more damage. I apologize it took so long but I really like to give people the chance to fix their wrongs.

Dove season's kind of puny this year on account of the droughts, so we're hoping the mobs come ranging out of the Democrat cities looking to vent their rage. Election time's good, because that would be an extra hunting season before we get serious about deer. Dove, commies, deer. Maybe that will become the new hunting calendar.


This sort of stuff is bad for BookTalk.org and society as a whole. I sent KindaSkolarly a private message asking him to tone it down months ago and he never even responded. He sure didn't tone it down. And then I warned him publicly on the forums and there was no change to his actions. So now he is banned.

The icing on the cake is that I noticed he was linking to Alex Jones in his signature.

I agree with using restraint in banning, so no need to apologize, Chris.

Lunatic fringe used to describe where people like him came from, but they're getting closer all the time.
