That would be incorrect, the thread slow was banned for was deleted right after he was banned. As for the thread you mentioned he was only warned for his conduct in that one and another one.So, I take a look at the whalebox, and I see the nice long thread where tekkit and ftb are being discussed with slowpoke... He comments that things are remarkably polite and ... then he gets banned.

It still fits with what I expect from a forum that warns people by setting the icon and title to something insulting.
Course, this does indeed lead to an atmosphere where you get very intense factions and infighting, and thus glorification of "victories" like the whalebox. It also gives you the kind of place that fills a whalebox.
Except for the thread where PM's where being posted for others to laugh at, I've seen worse, that was a little over the line and well into creepy.
Not sure what you are referring to. With that said, pretty much everyone and their mother has been bashed in this thread.Since when did this thread turn into a technic bashing thread? What ever you opinions regarding technic are, this is hardly the place for expressing them.
Not at all. That is a statement of opinion. Weather you choose to be there/agree with them is irrelevant. There is really no reason to bash them here. I am fine if you disagree with them, just don't confuse your opinion with fact.Ah, well, then I should say something.
I have no intent to "Bash" them, but pointing out that the forum is one of the top 5 most toxic places I've seen is just a statement of fact. Some people like places like that, and I've got nothing against them, I just don't choose to be there.
This ^Um, no, it's not an easily observable metric, simply because people have different opinions on how socially toxic something is. For example, in my opinion, the technic forums are the least toxic place on the internet that I've been. If you can come up with a widely agreed upon metric for measuring social toxicity, come back and try again.
What outside metric are you comparing it too? You are simply stating your opinion that Technic is toxic, I fail to see a comparison to an outside metric.If you judge it by your own standards, it's an opinion. If you compare it vs an outside metric, it's a measurement. It really is that simple.
