And remember this. Because this is the time that I (and a half dozen other people who consider you I be a friend) told you that you were overreacting especially as Arion apologized about a dozen times.
Whatever, do what you want. Ultimatiums made on message boards don't have any sway anyways. It'd be a shame to allow a probably innocuous comment (made by a poster who has never raised a finger to you) ruin your enjoyment of this site.
I was not overreacting. I left it to you and inviso-mod to deal with it. Nothing was done. Not a post, not a retraction, nothing. You and that mod know the history and yet did nothing. You both made a very bad call and now are running on sticking with it. He really made no apology as I pointed out. An apology is saying sorry and not trying to defend the insult they gave. Deleting the insult or editing it away does. He ignored the reactions of others, never dawning until I started with him to begin to understand, which he still didn't.
It was not an innocuous comment on his part. Replying with asking if I'd like artwork with underage nudity is not a reaction to the "needs more cowbell" joke. Feel free to try that with a co-work or your boss. You won't because you know what the reaction will be. The first for everything, here was his. As I said, he got his ass in a knot and made that remark. I left it to staff to deal with it, they didn't. You and that mod made a bad call and trying to defend it in true Simian/Neito ignore it and call it nothing. That behavior has ruined this site for me.
Arion will never try that with me again. Because he now knows that no matter what, he'll get the same in return and with interest. Not because the mods/admins here told him not to, that it's against the TOS, that it's against a semblance of good taste.
Go dig through the near ancient history of this place. I was asked to not deal with these things, as I was one who could and did. I was told this sort would be dealt with. It was not and rarely ever is. That promise I made is null and void as is the TOS for me.
I rarely hit that report button, I take a lot of what's tossed at me without a care or with a smile for the humor. If someone speaks in a civil manner to me, I reply in same. I don't keep grudges often as I see little point in them. Now I have one and it's with the staff here. It's not going away as it's be born of years of that call.
You want to joke with me, fine, you want to talk, fine, but someone starts a fight with me... keep to staying out of it. I won't stop or heed your request or threats to vacation or ban me. Not you or any staff here. You like history here, look at mine, I don't bullshit on this sort.
