With regard to Cal being perm banned:

Plagiarism, by definition, involves the claim of ownership or creation. Forgetting to give credit and acknowledging that the piece is not your own work is not plagiarism. An ommission of credit does not constitute plagiarism when it is acknowledged as someone else's work.

On top of that, it was used in an informal discussion in a random chat thread where the conversation changes every couple of minutes, and every single person was aware (as it was acknowledged) that it was not his. It's a bullshit ban.

Furthermore, if this particular ban had not been enforced, I'm quite sure the perm ban would not have come about. Cal had been posting within the rules for some time, and it would be pretty shitty if he had been perm banned out of nowhere after the 5th ban was randomly realised. It wouldn't have happened.

The plagiarism ban shouldn't have come about (and it shouldn't. It wasn't plagiarism.), and by that, the perm ban is pretty fucking harsh.

Obviously, nothing will change. He aint coming back. Doesn't mean it can't be said that he shouldn't be gone.
Plagarism was a rule that the staff, mainly WWE staff, wanted. It's no use in them complaining about this when it was a rule they wanted implimented.

It was part of the same point, albeit (along with the server issue) an issue that goes above your heads. Feel free to clarify such a point in the future before calling me a moron
Nah, I like calling you a moron.

Oh, I nearly forgot, a member of staff tried to remove Caligula's last warning. The thing is only Admins can completely remove warnings, not Mods or E-Fed staff. The Staff Member in question also tried to remove another users warning. As a result that staff member had a 2 day holiday.
