The incident between Gail Simone and MOTA was almost 6 years ago. Here is what Matt Brady said at the end on the thread.
"You're booted, mota, but not because of Gail.
You had warning after warning about this type of stuff, and you had stopped for a while.
You're gone, thread is locked.
So, after repeatedly being warned to keep his attitude in check, he didn't do it. Then he got banned. I hope he learned a life's lesson, but I'm sure he didn't.
As Simone said in that thread, he had been banned at other sites for the same activities.
In another thread, Simone says:
"Did you READ the thread? If so, did you notice that he said he shouldn't have maybe used the word 'whore' but insulting me PERSONALLY (not my work, despite your goofy reinterpretation) was fine and he wouldn't apologize at gunpoint?
Add to this that he was also trashing me personally on another board that I'd never posted at?
Add to that that he'd been warned many times here over being insane and insulting...
Add to that that he'd been banned from at least five boards for being unbearably obnoxious?
Jesus, in your world, does anyone EVER have to take responsibility for their own words and actions?
I ignored Mota for years. He didn't stop. He insulted, he lied constantly (anyone who was at CBR at the time will vouch for this). In other words, he didn't go away.
So the timeline here is...he insults me (and other pros and posters) repeatedly and often, gets banned consistantly everywhere he posts, I show up to defend myself here, because I like Newsarama, and...
it's MY fault, it's the other poster's fault?
Excuse me, but when, when, when is it MOTA's fault?
I took full responsibility for what I said. I offered not to post here and told Matt I was fine, no hard feelings, if he chose to ban me.
Matt is well aware where the problem lies. If you are not, that's not my problem.
