    Like it or not; this forum needs Highlander. Just watch as BTT degrades into a huge circle-jerk where everyone says "Oh, don't worry. It's okay to go bald. Everyone will love you anyway. Live. Laugh. Love. <3"

    Every angel on our shoulder must be counteracted by a devil. Only when you hear both sides of an issue can you make an informed decision or act rationally. Highlander is that devil. He tells the truth (most of the time) that people don't want to hear. I only wish he wouldn't have allowed his racism to seep through so much. Any reply he makes now will have to be plain and characterless.

    Mark my words. This place will dry up unless someone fills his place. He brings the views whether you all want to accept that or not.

    It's been proven we are not the same people. I hate racism just as much as you do. That doesn't change the fact that he adds something to these forums.

    I guarantee you this will not happen. I have read this forum since 2010 and sure there are posters who post things like that, but for the most part people come here because they know hair loss is crap. And there is always at least one guy who will rant about just how f*cking horrible it is.
    Before Highlander we had Scorpion, before Scorpion there was Fixed by 35 (who still posts sometimes). Even I have gone over the top at times when my depression was severe, and many other posters have as well.

    To me Highlander was one of the worst to fill that roll. I identify with his BDD but his racism, religious zealot mindset, and just generally being a 20 year old virgin who thinks he knows it all overshadowed his other contributions most of the time

    However I could see him possibly getting his head on straight during the next few years and becoming a much better poster

    Hmm, I hope this isn't permenant, Highlanders basic philosophy on hairloss and looks in general is similar to mine.

    Its mot hard to look past his racism, personal attacks etc.. I don't understand how offence can be taken from anything written online from someone who doesn't even know you personally.

    Do not worry, there are plenty more of us on this forum with BDD.

    & eventually I did stop taking offense to his bigoted posts just because he was so obviously messed up in the head. Also he is very young. But when you use someone else's forum you follow their rules or get moderated....it works that way on any forum. He had about 50 chances and blew them all, most people can learn within 49

    I liked Highlander's posts because they were interesting. Personal attacks don't really bother me, but if they bother you, you need to change your attitude.

    Racism on BTT is bad, but it's not as if he was converting other people. My opinion is that racism and ad hominem arguments aren't a big deal in the anonymity of an online forum.

    I believe that Highlander wasn't bad enough to get moderated. Perhaps if he had posted graphic videos depicting sex acts or violence, then moderation would have been appropriate.

    Finally, I genuinely believe that Highlander contributed to BTT. His arguments tended to the extreme, but they were always interesting to read. I enjoyed logging in every day or so to see what he had written, especially if I disagreed with it.

    I'm adding TheLaughingCow to the Highlander, Scorpian, Aames, twisted freak show. Only one of Highlander's aliases would defend this ****ing freak.
    I am not associated with Highlander in any way. Just because my philosophy sometimes matches that of another person, doesn't mean that I am that other person.

    I have seen baldozer post racist things before as well and he has never been moderated. Nothing against him; I like him. Just pointing it out.

    Srsly, all of our pet peeves aside, every forum has rules. Highlander did not get moderated because people like me are bothered by racism, he got moderated because he broke the rules every week. (Another example....if I post porn videos every week I will be moderated, not because porn bothers you but because the forum rules forbid it)
    If he had a problem with the rules he could have just posted somewhere else, but he did not, so what happened was 100&#37; predictable/avoidable
    Highlander chose to get moderated. It was what he wanted.

    I might have missed those. I am a little more concerned that he is a 35 year old man who thinks people should be arrested for having sex, lol
