A while back we hung the title "retarded spambot" on chitoryu12 as incentive for him to improve his behavior. As far as I can tell, he's been pretty good for the last couple of months. Is it time to recommend to the administration that the negative title be removed or should he hang on to it?

Sounds like a very good idea. I can't recall the last time he was trouble; the title no longer applies to his behaviour. I think he's earned its removal.

Was there a term set to how long should keep the title in the first place?

No set term that I can remember, but as the person who asked for him to be titled (or one of the main movers behind that), I concur that it should be removed. He's been good.

I remember when he and EP/SC seemed to be one of a kind. I'd say he's dramatically improved since then.

I don't run across him that much but in many ways I think its an indication that before even I couldn't avoid the crazy and I haven't seen it. So yeah I would have no objection to a removal. Based on the past precedent I don't think we really need a vote on this unless there is some objection that develops in the next several days.

I support removing his title.

I was just reading some posts from him a couple days ago and found myself thinking, "Is this... chitterling? Holy crap, why's he still got a title?"

Yeah, time to lift it.
Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."

In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!

I'll +1 onto the dog pile for removal of the title from Chitty-Chitty-bang-bang.

why do I come up with nicknames for all the posters, and why am I so merciful compared to the rest of you?

Removing the title is, I think, an wholly justifiable change. It would also act as an incentive to others who bear such titles to clean up their act and get likewise rehabilitated.

He's grown up quite a bit. Let's let him off the hook.
A Government founded upon justice, and recognizing the equal rights of all men; claiming higher authority for existence, or sanction for its laws, that nature, reason, and the regularly ascertained will of the people; steadily refusing to put its sword and purse in the service of any religious creed or family is a standing offense to most of the Governments of the world, and to some narrow and bigoted people among ourselves.
