Just curious, if you know someone who has done this (or if you’ve done it yourself) - why the fuck would someone “request” to be banned? And I don’t mean account suicide, like some jackasses who post things to get themselves banned (like an insult to the forum owner or the forum itself, etc) in order to martyr themselves in the name of Social Justice, or “unfair” moderation, etc, because those people are too simple-minded to care about.
Why in gods name would you ask for a ban otherwise? Because you have no self control, and can’t stay away from posting in the forum? Or you’ve just decided NeoGaf is the root of your self-induced procrastination? I just find it funny that people do this rather than just…. Stop coming to the forum and practice some self control and get shit done in their lives?
For reference, you can find the list of Bans here
along with the reason for the Ban. If you scroll through there’s a surprisingly amount of self request and it’s baffling.
Thoughts? Can you relate to these people?
