  • When Members Claim Their Actions Are Due To Alcohol

    A member of my board went on a small spam spree tonight, and claims he's drunk. We had to delete the spam and temporarily ban him. Er, this is what he's been saying (not actually that long considering each line contains like 2 words):

    By the way, does anyone know if my claims during the convo were true? That you wouldn't think of forums when you're drunk, and that you can't really type? (I wouldn't know, as I've never been drunk).

    Anyways, do you think I should hold him accountable for this? Do you think I should make it a not-so-temporary ban?

    Definitely hold him accountable. Alcohol is no excuse since presumably he drank it with his own free will.

    Only you can make the decision whether or not the ban is permanent.

      I say give him a warning, he could be drunk.. Ive had people do that before when tehy were drunk.. If he does it again perm ban him.

        At one of the forums I go to there's a person there who gets drunk now again and what the admins there do is just remove his posting rights (he can still read) until he gets sober again. Normally he's a good contributor to the forums except for those rare times that he's drunk and he usually just goes off and says random things but doesn't really flame/insult anyone or anything like that

          What Steve said. That's like asking your woman not to hold you responsible for getting her preggers because your hormones were controlling you when you were doing it.

          Although a ban seems harsh just because someone's having a drunk night. Give them a warning not to come around on the board while they're drunk, and keep them from posting while they're at it®®Çrseurl=1

            I'm going to poll the other mods and see how he should be punished then. This isn't the first time it happened (it happened before with another drunk user, not this one though).

            So I guess people really can type when they're drunk?

            You mean I can't ask that?

              Didn't anyone see the humor in it?
              That is just really funny. My mods seem to be more mellow when they're drunk.

                Ban him for a month.
                Tell him he can come back after a month.
                If he is found abusing his registered member status again after that, it will be a permanent ban.

                  Get with the times. People aren't accountable for their own actions anymore. It's always some one else's fault.

                    I have, compared to some of my friends, a pretty high tolerance to alcohol, but once I get to the "drunk" stage, I can barely type. Once you're that drunk, all you can really do is either sleep or have sex.

                      Yes, lets blame the vbulletin devs and support.

                        The sad part is that someone may actually try to do that at some point. The even worse part is that they'll probably win.

                          I really don't see how someone drunk would go on the internet, why?

                            I've surfed the net while drunk, stoned, tripping and having sex (not all at the same time of course).

                            I don't know why.
