Chances are it will just get merged into another thread.

They're newbies. You and I are oldbies.
I shudder to have to admit it, but I agree. They're old questions/topics to us but new to them.

Well first off this will probably get locked because they get really touchy if you discuss banned people.

Second off I always enjoyed wgscott and I was surprised to see he'd been permabanned. He was definitely a lot better than some of the outright racist and misogynist trolls that seem to operate with impunity here. When they first banned him I figured it would be like 2 week thing, but clearly that's not the case.

He seemed to really get into it with the mods on this issue and apparently that was the straw that broke the camel's back. Maybe there was some behind the scenes messages or some posts that were deleted that were worse. Or maybe he requested the ban. Since they only update the banned user list arbitrarily now I guess we'll never know.
