Banned member BookerTWashington for posting an external link.
This one, I want to talk about in a bit more detail. The individual joined our forum within the last week or so and the first thread+post he/she made was to an external discord channel. Presumably. I did not click-through and check.
By itself, that does not feel like a bannable offence, but we already have a discord channel. Feels silly to be asking folks to move else-where. Not to say that we do not allow it. Heck, if an existing member pointed me to a place with good fanfic recommendations, I'd probably jump in. The issue here is that it was this member's first post. That was very suspicious.
The next odd thing was a poll on the thread asking "do you like men?" (I deleted the poll - no one voted). As far as I know, we don't have rules about anyone's sexual preferences in here. But I can't figure out how the poll and the post itself are connected.
In the end, my decision was to brand the member as banned, lock/hide the thread and write this up in the report, since it felt worth mentioning.
Thank you to one of our regulars who reported this!
