    I'd like the mods to explain this one.

    It seems heavy handed and unwarranted to me.

    What was the transgression?

    Is it temporary or permanent?

    He was a respected member in my book even though he could be disagreeable and blunt. He backed up his opinions.

    Spare us the privacy concerns, please.

    Yeah, if it was just his obstreperousness, I can't feature it.
    Very clever man, and you had to admire the granitic groundedness of the old bison.
    Never gave an inch to anyone ... but he was never quite unfair, either.
    Did he have more than one account? Was he really 16 years old?
    Mods, admins ... give us a little more on this one, please.

    It's not your privacy to spare.

    But we know damn well that Big D, of all (former) members, wouldn't ask that you take a stand on privacy.

    Are you assuming that his is the only privacy that's involved here?

    I assume that his is the only privacy importantly involved.
    However, I don't know.

    How about the fact that he was a miserable bugger that never had a good word for anyone? Or there again that is not really grounds for banning is it?

    You had to read him. And that's always a good thing ... agree with him or not.
    But he should have been waving a musket in the French revolution or maybe a machete in Hue.
    On a big dick site, his ardour was a bit overdrawn.
    But ... takes all kinds.
    He was interesting.

    I rather found his comments to be 'spot on' most of the time. It's rather refreshing to have someone consistently call 'bullshit' on other people. However, as ascerbic as his comments may have been, it's no reason to be banned.

    Obviously there's some other reason for his banning...
