You jest, my friend, but I would suggest that there is a deeply interesting epistemological question here about the nature of "good", viz. - whether banning Machinaforce can be judged as an objective universal good from the perspective of a Kantian moral imperative. Applying the semantic ascent principle of contextualism, we arrive at the inescapable conclusion that there is no a priori objective sense in which banning Machinaforce could be anything but "good", and moreover, we can also infer that allowing his continued infestation of the board would be -- in the contextualist sense of moral epistemology -- "bad", or at least, within the strict meaning of experiential foundationalism, "extremely annoying".

I think there is a lot here for future philosophers to ruminate about.
