I would hope that, should he wish in the future, he might be allowed back. Many others have been allowed back just for the asking who were more egregious in their actions. That said, he did not seem to want to be a member anymore, whatever his reasons, and did all but ask to be removed, so I don't fault Lucky for his action.

I really wish KnivesOut wasn't banned. He was already hobbled (rightly so). So he didn't pose any further "threat" to the sift. It's not the first time someone has attempted "Sifticide" by going on a kill spree on their way out the door, and I'm really glad Eric caught it and put the breaks on it. Maybe the guy was just having a really shit day and fucked up. In the end though, he wasn't trying to fuck with other people or other member's sifts. Just a bit of rage quit. Might have felt different about it the next day and apologized. Then gotten unhobbled and moved on. Now he can't do that.

And I realize how this might seem like hyperbole overload, but I can't help seeing this as a VS version of shooting someone while they are in handcuffs.

If you don't care that much, then just leave. No need to damage the site on your way out.

Here, I'll help make it easier for you...

I seriously don't care that much. I just don't want to be a part of this community any more.

I'll just change my password to some garbage.

Sorry man it's not really my call. I'm just trying to save lucky some work. I'm sure @lucky760 will just unkill the ones you have already killed. It's what has been done in the past when other sifters have killed their videos upon exit and one of the main reasons there is a hobble option.

-edit-
i see lucky jumped in before i sent this comment

Why not? Let someone else post them, if they're worth a shit.

Explicitly one of the cases for which hobbling was specifically created.

Your videos are no longer just yours, but for the entire community to enjoy. Your "cleaning house" hurts the sift by removing lots of content that was good enough to get published.

Let's holler for @dag and get his input.

Its not a problem to discard your q but you started killing your sifted videos which is against VideoSift rules. @lucky760

Happy belated anniversary! Due to a glitch in the Matrix, we forgot to mark year number 8 since you first became a Sifter. The community wouldn\'t be the same without you. Thanks for your contributions!
