DrDeth, two things.

1. Bringing Bricker into this is not best practices. This is a mod note to not do anything similar in the future.

2. We are NOT going to see you go around and around again about the definition of impeachment. Doing so in the future - in any thread not specifically about the definition of the word - may earn you warnings. Stop it.

What does " not do anything similar in the future" mean? Can I say, "this is the sort of legal question Bricker excels at"? Can I mention other poster's names? What exactly is the issue here? Does this mean other posters cant mention Brickers name? is it just Bricker or is it all posters? If they mention my name in a thread, do I report it? Whose name can be mentioned? Whose name can not? Bricker has indeed weighed in on this issue with a fairly well known public opinion. In fact he publicly made a bet about it. Did he complain about this? I count a good number of threads where Brickers name was brought up on this topic, and not a hint of Mod action.

Ok, this is thread #2, and in both cases, the threads were about impeachment. Why am I now told I cant ask about this? Two whole threads? It is a issue which comes up. It will keep coming up. Do we now have a new rule? bring up a issue twice and that's it?

This note makes no sense at all.
