This is an open question to the moderators; Was RealityCheck actually permanently banned for expressing this opinion?: and farsight, with an established reputation for spewing factually unsupported ideas, was only given a 3 day suspension? Was RealityCheck really on such thin ice that by expressing his opinion on what he considered heavy handed moderation warranted his permanent removal from the forum? I may not have always agreed with RealityCheck, but I thought he was a reputable contributor. This seems unfair, especially when you consider the leniency this forum has given to others less worthy(like gustav and farsight). I hope this permanent ban is reconsidered.
