Hoyt banned from the gungeon. So much for the impartiality of the group host. [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by krispos42 (a host of the Gun Control & RKBA group).

Oh, I'm sure there's some excuse, like he was being "disruptive". But there's a jury system for that, and Hoyt had very few if any posts hidden by jury. If this was really about being disruptive, then krispos might have banned some of our right-wing trolls, before they got so far out of hand that the admins had to step in and kick them off of DU. For example:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=profile&uid=280313
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=profile&uid=286446

But, alas, the illusion that a pro-gun host will hold pro-gun and pro-control posters to the same standard was just that. Hoyt is a long-time gungeon poster and a star member of DU. I'm sure he made some objectionable posts, but he's hardly the only one to do so. A lot of DUers are frustrated by the jury system, but that doesn't justify unilaterally deciding to ban people like Hoyt while ignoring equally objectionable behavior by posters whose political views coincide with those of the group host.
