Over the past few years, many users have approached me with complaints about @Joan, who constantly acts ungrateful, entitled and rude throughout the PHF community.

While there’s no forum rules against being a whiny brat, some users have expressed that Joan should be banned for making the forum an unpleasant place for everyone else.

Should I do what they ask and ban Joan from PHF?

Over time, with the block feature, I've been able to stop viewing the user's writing, but it does show up as quoted text. While I've largely been able to overlook what's written, I do see the impacts it has on the forum as a whole. Despite attempts to reach out, offer material the user has asked for, etc, I've been met with brash and hostile responses. At the end of the day, I do hope/believe all users want to do their best to adhere to generally accepted behaviour, which in my eyes, is offered as a range to accommodate many varying personality types. Are there users on here that get on my nerves? Yeah, absolutely, but I can recognize when it's a "me problem." There's different personalities and then there's flagrant disregard. We have some amazing members here who have been here for years and some really cool new members that are just lovely additions. I would hate for the actions of one to drive away the great and unique individuals who come through the forum. We're here because we love music, we love the artists, and we want to support each other's work (self-recordings, fan-made artwork, etc.). While I can see why, @Skinny Legend, you want to take time to consider this action, I do believe this isolated case of banning a user is the right decision.. I believe this would be a great example of how members in this community want a positive experience on the forum and not have to deal with one very vocal heckler attacking their favourite artists, or worse, attacking them personally. There are other music forums out there where this type of behaviour is probably more accepted/unregulated, but I think quite highly of the community at PHF, which is why I've chosen to stay here as long as I have. <3

I was very tempted at voting for option three, but I ultimately decided not to :cackle: 

Yeah it's been a nuisance to have this person here. I've tried to show myself nice to them, but there was a time about 2.5 years ago that they got myself out of my nerve and I began ranting and posting just in their style against them - and that was the last. I ignored them shortly after, and PHF went back to be a place at ease in my case.

But I know what it's like to be reading their disrespectful posts over and over, it gets tiring and it's really annoying that if they've been asked not to beg for leaks in the Latest Leaks section (more than once), they just continue to do so with very disrespectful phrasing.

I'm not the one to choose if they should be banned or not, but if you ask me, I'm in favour of that decision. If they end up not being banned, well, we always have the Ignore User function that works wonders: "one click, and the evil is gone!" :magic:
