Btw, Hero asked if they could give me their opinion on it so here it is:
What Nick said was completely and utterly unprofessional, hurtful, unprovoked, and terrible. He knew that I was at least a supporter of the community, seeing as I took the time and cordially explained why his friends were banned for extreme homophobia. He made a point several times to say in the conversation that he did not wish to start an argument when he argued against the facts I gave to him. When he made his first statement about not 'believing in homosexuality,' I honestly thought he was joking at first. He then went on to argue against homosexual people in a manner that was belittling and hateful, although not strong. He made it very clear where he stands and that he was twisting his beliefs to fit his discriminatory words. Not only was it hurtful, it made me extremely uncomfortable to be told that something my friends and I have struggled with was 'fake.'
After I reported him to an admin on the local community, he then went on to argue with me. He tried to emotionally manipulate me by saying I had 'broken the last bit of life' in him. A friend and poweruser on the community I am most active in was there for me, however he continued arguing and even when the admin on the local community pointed out his disgusting actions, he still refused to stop. It was at that point that he was banned for a year
He has shown to repeatedly emotionally manipulate the users he is friends with, has cursed repeatedly at them, and has hinted at his bigoted views since his ban. I do believe that FANDOM would be safer without him.
