This thread reminds me that Colten Montgomery looks like he should NOT be allowed near a school. Mo-les-tache.

It's an interesting question.

Doesn't really matter to me, unless it's personal or I happen to know some horrible detail that makes me unable to be around the person. For instance, if I had the choice between playing 18 with a petty thief, or with a person who I only know is a sex offender (but I don't know about their crime), I'd pick the sex offender because the petty thief will look for a chance to steal from me. But if I knew that the offender did X to a Y-year-old, I just wouldn't be able to stomach having fun with them.

There isn't really any social justice in shunning people from everyday activities, but there's also a knowledge component to it. Maybe not exactly "hear no evil" but similar.

When I refuse to associate with people, it's not a social justice issue. It's not about how it affects them.

It's about me. I play tournaments for pleasure. If there's enough displeasure being in someone's presence, I'll forego it.

That would be just fine, until he pisses you off and you tell him to "bite me, Jeffrey."

If I had to make a choice between Dahmer and a child molester, I'd play a round with Dahmer.

Child molesters are the lowest in my book and I don't care how anyone views that. I would yell at the top of my lungs if I find out someone is a molester and people around did not know.

That's part of what I was trying to get at, that if I have knowledge of the person's crime and it makes me ill, I can't enjoy my time around that person. It's not about banning the person from trying to have a life or making them pay or anything. Some might feel differently on that point.

The underlined part speaks for me. Maybe they've paid their debt to society, or whatever other rational case we can make. But ultimately, it comes down to how the experience affects me at at kind of visceral level.

The social justice aspect will definitely occur to me. Might even weigh on my mind... a bit. But I still gotta live with the guy in the mirror.
