I have banned OvertakenByTractors (OBT)


#1

OBT started a new account called ‘TheSecondFoot’ which had raised a lot of grumbles on here culminating in being banned for misogyny to DarwinBabe. I allowed OBT to stay unbanned on the assumption they might let it go and just not be a twat.

Instead OBT messaged me making the key statement:

Why can’t I have another account? I’d rather retire this one and get a fresh start, carve out a new niche, develop a new image etc.

This strongly implies to me that this is TheSecondFoot account is the new image/niche OBT wishes to carve out, which isn’t great and further makes me think OBT is generally tolerated when being objectionable just because we accept that’s who they are.

Thanks
