Bring back gorgor sign now

On 8/13/2010, Drew Curtis (owner and founder of fark.com as "Drew") posted on the fark.com site on the topic of some changes of heart about previously perma-banned members and formerly bannable but now permitted activities on the site. With this one of the more infamous banned members was welcomed back, and Drew said "if you've got a favorite permabanned Farker that has been gone for upwards of a year or longer, drop Mel a line via Farkback. Provided whatever they did didn't stretch into the realm of the illegal, odds are we can probably work something out."

This has prompted many in the fark community to rally to bring back the member "gorgor" who was only recently perma-banned, but has long been both censored and censured in a most unusual manner. gorgor has been unable to post any threads, hotlinks, or inline images, requiring that anyone viewing the submitted content make a deliberate effort to do so. In addition, for unknown reasons, he has been ineligible to subscribe to or be sponsored into the "TotalFark" area of the website.

Yes, gorgor delights in posting bizarre, grotesque, and shocking content, but understands that such things are not to be in-lined and should be flagged "NSFW" when linked. It is our understanding that technically gorgor has been operating within the rules, particularly with the restrictions placed on his account, yet somehow a properly-warned non-clickable URL to a poor-quality video showing something disturbing but not illegal or particularly gory has been the straw that broke the camel's back and earned him a permanent vacation. gorgor has recently appealed this decision and has been informed that a return under his current guise is not an option.

In the previously-mentioned posting by Drew it was also said that "We're no longer dropping timeouts, bans, or any other penalty for talking about obvious but sick memes that exist on the net (goatse, lemonparty, 2girls1cup, etc). Please don't inline link em, and if you link em out don't use em like rickrolls etc. The main goal was to not get people in trouble who might accidentally hit that stuff at work, and honestly I think the whole concept is a little outdated anyhow."
In light of the fact that such content is no longer forbidden, it is absurd that gorgor is not welcome on Fark.com. His postings have been on par with such things and would not earn him any sanctions under this new policy if he plays by the rules.

In signing this petition, we request that gorgor be allowed to return to the fark.com website with full privileges, including being allowed to join the TotalFark community. Many of us have come to know gorgor outside of the Fark website and would not be surprised if he became a vibrant participant in the TotalFark Discussion (вTFDв) area of the site if given the opportunity. He is not a one trick pony and is prone to posting just plain amusing things as readily as disturbing things. We expect that he will be held to the same standards as any other member and given the same opportunity to redeem himself while still being able to carry on with his unique style, no matter if we enjoy it or simply feel it should not be censored.
