Poster Fuel receives one month suspension

While not a prolific poster, Fuel has managed to maintain an attitude of supercilious contempt in the pursuit of ignorance, resulting in the following admonishments:

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...&postcount=171

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...5&postcount=26

and three separate efforts in one thread, beginning here:
http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...9&postcount=13

to which he replied with no display that he understood the issue of his behavior.

He has, therefore, been given a 30 day suspension to reconsider his posting behavior.

Well. That was the second most spectacular flameout I've ever seen in GQ.

The really impressive thing was that it was actually in GD. It got moved and he apparently didn't notice.

I'm showing Fuel as BANNED, not suspended, has there been an error?

Doncha just love it when the notification is written by tomndebb? This was like having the morning anouncements in Elementary School read by Alexander Scourby.

No, it's just the way it works. A suspension is a temporary banning, and the software uses "banned" for it as well. An admin will have to change fuel's title when one gets around to it.

Well done, I think that a 3,000 day suspension is entirely appropiate even if a little lenient.
