i was in a similar situation, but instead of staying around harping on it i left. OIM also had that option but he chose to stay you can not blame anyone except OIM for his banning. the real question is why OIM chose to stay, especially after a temp ban. the best course of action in a situation like this is to state your opinion, present your evidence, and let history be the judge. frankly i haven't read very many posts by OIM for the simple reason i am not a geologist. he can say something about geology to me that makes perfect sense but to a geologist is so full of holes it's amazing he ever stated it.
