Is this what we call a meta-discussion?

It's not this thread specifically that is the issue.  Eevee was saying that he thinks it reflects poorly on the f.ds that people are joking about Bomb (and the set and the guy behind it) all over the forum.  It's become a sort of f.ds inside joke a la Scout or Mint/Mine, but Eevee perceives it as mean-spirited rather than being just good fun. 

I understand his point.  On the other hand, the guy was kind of a jerk and it was pointed out that his behaviour has been just as ridiculous in other corners of the internet.  Even so, we could stand to tone down the jokes.

Honestly I disagree with Eevee's sentiment here, though I understand it.  I think it just shows that we're a generally I light-hearted community that can take anything and turn it into a joke, and that's part of the good thing about this forum. I don't think there is really any mean-spiritedness in here.

Yeah. Also, I really think that any newcomer who sees this should understand that ErrinF brought this upon himself by not being new, but by being a... funny person.

yes, i actually think this thread demonstrates the good sides of f.ds, everyone who criticized the cards was more or less direct but also polite.

I agree with Eevee's perception, and I agree with this post. In my opinion, F.DS members and Theory acted correctly while the discussion was going on, but it is quite unseemly to keep this going. What is the point of mocking the person that started this, what does anybody stand to gain from it? It's been nearly a month since the ban, and I see no reason why this thread is still linked to from all over the Forum. Nothing good came out of it, nor do I think it will.
It would reflect better on us if the thread was locked, and if we kept jokes about bomb down to a minimum outside of it. This atmosphere is pretty much the opposite of the reason why I spend so much time logged in this site.

There, now you have my completely unasked-for opinion on the subject.

I just discovered it too, about a month late.  I saw the topic all the time, but the cards in the OP just weren't interesting enough for me to read the ensuing discussion.

This was exactly my reaction until someone linked it from another thread.

How was this never locked? I guess because only one person was the problem, so banning was fine?

I mean, it was untouched for nearly 2 years. Will probably do the same after this short burst of activity. I remember being really confused by the whole thing.
