Honest question, in reference to this is the post.
Post in question

For the TLDR crew, OP looses service dog, guy responds with "if you are that far gone I would put an end to your self". It was the 2nd or 3rd time since 2009 that I hit report, so I know it was reported.

ETA, The person in question was banned.

Didn't read the post. But based on the title I'd say no. 
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 8:55:51 PM EST
The guy is obviously a troll. My only grievance is sometimes when they don't get caught/nipped I'm the bud, they get their post count high enough that they persist and become a festering fucking annoying sore.
Link Posted: 12/20/2016 8:56:09 PM EST
I hit report too. I was pissed. Claiming to be a man... Total DB.

It absolutely would be against the COC. Even if it didn't warrant a ban or a timeout which it should, it should still have been edited out by a mod. I quoted it so he couldn't change it.

Guy was a prick for saying it.

edit: I see JW took care of it. Maybe it's good it wasn't edited out. Now everyone can read it and see what kind of a person that guy is.

Are you talking about that piece of shit from yesterday's posting telling the OP to get over? Then he goes on telling everybody about how his father's dad committed suicide in front of him when he blew out his brains.

What was the result, warning, time out, ban, other, or nothing?

The post is still up.

ETA: Answered while I was posting.

What he said was fucked up, at the same time no one likes a hall monitor. If you reported it let staff/mods do their thing, no need to start a thread on it.

Edit: it looks like it was taken care of...

To be fair, he did ask for a refund.

I'm torn- it was an asshole comment, but the OP posted some sensitive shit in GD.

First time I've ever reported anything.
Fuck that dude!

So, no...it's not COC compliant. But every violation of the COC is not dealt with in a publicly visible manner.

When you click the report button a mod or staffer looks at it and makes a determination on what to do with it from there.

One of the more assholish posts I've ever seen on ARFCOM, and that's saying something.

Thank you. I wonder how many reports you got on that. I know there were at least 2.

I see it is edited out now. Thanks, the lack of an edit made me think that perhaps whoever the mod was thought it was not a violation. Clearly that was not the case. That and there were some posters, I would deem good, posting things in response that might not be completed COC compliant. I would not want someone to get themselves in trouble like that.

Never ever tell someone to kill themselves. Not in jest. Not in anger. Not in a flippant or dismissive manor. You never truly know what lies in the heart and mind of another and that throwaway trite comment could irreversibly push someone over the edge.

that's fine , and says a lot about you.
I'd likely do the same, because I don't really care about the blathering of strangers.

however, burkeva's comment right above this post sums the issue up perfectly. A shit post of that type can cause unrecoverable damage, and really has to be stomped on.
I know of a guy back in my college days who was upset and said something about killing himself; his roommate basically told him to go right ahead.
the cops found him floating in the Monongahela River outside Uniontown , PA, about 2 days later.
There's a very high bridge there.

I did. Says alot about you, but what about the next person he says that too? He needed bounced. No place for someone like that. He should seek help.

Edit: beat like a rented mule! 

Also... I hope you find a new friend, or he finds you.

Consider than 90+% of GD posts are troll bullshit.  Post count and year joined are the first clues.  Then the tenor and reading between the lines is for the lifers to figure out.  

I saw that post of the "ptsd" "dog died". and my first thought was troll, troll, troll.

What a dickhead move, but typically I don't like the perma ban thing.....

In this case 0 fucks given. I think long standing members should be able to come back after a while.

He was and is in duress. Not everything in GD should be seen as a free fire zone to stalk, do CoC violations, and trying to rises out of people.

GD requires a thick skin, but it is not a free-fire zone in which to be a complete dickhead. We can be rowdy and tease each other mercilessly, but it is possible to go over the line with being an asshole.

People forget that, then they wonder why so many longtime members have left GD or left Arfcom entirely.

Thanks, mods. I was also one of the "tattletales." As many times as I have seen the post by Ed Avila offering help, trying to get people to call others, etc, I just said this crap has no place on this board. Granted, the offending party has problems but that was just too much.
