This weekend I came across information that a person convicted of possession and distribution of child pornography and who is also still currently on an active state sex offender registry regularly participates in tournaments on the east coast from star city games sanctioned events to unsanctioned vintage and legacy events.
Under no circumstances will I publicly provide this persons information, because the goal here is not to get out the tar and feathers, but to honestly gauge the opinions of the vintage community. Everything I have discovered has already been submitted to wizards of the coast as well as a reliable judge who will handle it on their end.
People may be aware that a player was banned from the DCI for life for a rape conviction he was convicted of years before he was publicly outed on twitter in the middle of a grand prix.
There were players who somehow found a justification to put support behind this player, and I'm wondering if that same exact situation would occur in our community which is far more personal as nearly everyone knows each other.
This is actually the most surprising thing that has happened to me in 20+ years in magic.
