    Questions such as this are generally better asked in the SFOG section of the Forum, alternatively, here is a link to the Ban List

    Wow. That is a long list. What were the complaints?

    Fellow Traveller repeatedly asked to be banned through PMs and Visitor Messages to a moderator. He just didn't want to be a member anymore.

    Just curious ....

    Out of all the people we've banned over time, why does this one member matter to you?

    Because he requested it.

    What's your connection to him?

    Sarcasm I assume?

    No connection. Just curious. He seems to post OK stuff here.

    No sarcasm. It's right there on the ban list. He sent messages and PMs to moderators requesting that he be banned.

    No. The truth. As I stated, he constantly asked to be banned. He didn't want to be a member anymore.

    He was an interesting person.

    Whatever lifts your luggage

    Telling. Then again, I suppose it depends on your definition of "OK". I mean, a semi-literate, belligerent misanthrope isn't on my list of people to hang out with, but, you know, whatever lifts your luggage.

    He was a sock puppet.

    That's your supposition about nearly everyone.
    No he wasn't.

    For one his posting style didn't match anyone else's.
    For another his overall attitude didn't match anyone else's.
    And for a third none of his IPs matched any other posters.

    What do you mean "perhaps"? Are you calling Dywyddyr a liar? Or what?

    All of these can be easily disguised. Just sayin...:)

    They can be, but posting style and attitude tend to revert over time.
    FT was particularly, um, belligerent (among other things) and acted like no other poster I've come across.

    I am just making conversation.

    I didnt think Dywyddyr was here when this FT was posting either.
