A_Nony_Mouse has been banned
This is completely bogus. Where is the open forum, where is the free speech this forum is supposed to be about? I am outraged.

RE: A_Nony_Mouse has been banned
This is a discussion forum. He was not waiting for any replies before posting more information to bump his threads up in an attempt to spread a message, not spark a discussion. People are free to express their ideas here, but they are not free to simply bombard everyone with posts in some sort of attempt at informational attrition.

I just checked the moderator activity log. He was banned for spamming. I never checked out the urls in his signature. Not sure what he was spamming.

The reason I gave is considered spamming.

So... the only guy around here who had knowledge of middle-eastern history on par with minimalist has been banned, because he couldn't help himself from copy/pasting stuff from his website?
And this went on, in spite of a few friendly warnings?

I hate banning of an established member.... I'd be a terrible mod... Sad

Despite repeated warnings, yes, he continued to do as he pleased.

He wasn't banned for his speech, but for spamming. As an open forum as you say, this is a place for discussion, not to spam propaganda.

Here is an example, 3 posts in succession, in order to bump his thread

Boohoo, frz. I hate to be the bearer of reality here, but your outrage counts not a whit. Rules are rules.
