ISD TYPE40 Fired?

I've noticed ISD TYPE40 hasn't posted in quite awhile now, almost a month to this day.

I'm not alone in thinking he was - by far - the worst ISD member.

And I don't mean this in an "attack the ISD just because he's ISD" way.

Before some random ISD incorrectly cites Forum Rule #29.

29. Personal attacks and abuse of CCP staff.

There has been a worrying trend of increased personal attacks on developers on our own forums as of late, this will not be tolerated. Our forums are an area for players to exchange ideas in a polite and friendly manner for the betterment of EVE Online. Players who abuse staff will receive a permanent forum ban across all of their accounts which will not be subject to review at any time.

Because this isn't a personal attack. I don't know the guy. Its an objective criticism of his body of work.

Numerous complaints about his highly unprofessional conduct litter the forum archives.
I have yet to see such outrage directed at ANY other volunteer.
And while some complaints about TYPE40 many have been unwarranted, you know what they say about smoke and fire.

His efforts certainly went the furthest towards degrading the EVE Forum community.
I can't imagine how many EVE players were completely turned off from using these forums entirely.

If he WAS fired (can a volunteer be fired?), I heartily commend CCP for their decision.

Agree? Chime in! Disagree? Feel free to say why and give kudos to your favorite community member.

Not even sure what made me look into this - I just had this 'vague' sense that the forums were somewhat more enjoyable than they were a couple months ago. Didn't take me long to put my fingeron the reason why.

This thread is going places.

EDIT: The irony would be if ISD TYPE40 were the one to lock it.

I like him. He makes people like the OP butthurt. This is never a bad sign.

Loss is meaningful. Therefore is the loss of meaning likewise meaningful. It is the source of all trolling.

You mean, he "locked" threads. Past tense.
Tenses are tricky for the sub-literate, I know.

It's touching to see how the OP cares so much. Lol

This thread is going nowhere, and no matter how you try to spin it, this is a direct attack on a member of ISD.

Don't do it, it's against the forum rules, and is looked upon in a very dim light.
