On the 13th of January, 2016, in a thread discussing the death of a 12-year-old girl after being shot whilst hiding behind their parent, he made such a legendarily horrible post that its stupidity caused the imminent extinction of all intelligent life in the universe; thus, resulting in a permanent ban. It was so bad, the thread was renamed "wickedplayer494 kills the universe on post 4".
Miraculously, wickedplayer494 returned to the community following his ban-based hiatus, on Knockout.
