Since this is about a poster rather than the board, let's move it to MPSIMS

I thought he had been banned. Did I dream that?

(apologies to stranger if I am wrong)


mmm


ETA: I now see he was merely suspended for 30 days back in October.

Isn't he some kind of professor type? He sure writes like one.
I would have figured he's just preoccupied by end-of-school-year exams/events/et cetera and will return in a week or two.
At least that's what I'm hoping....



Paging Dr. Stranger....

Hes one of the most intelligent people here. I think his work was in aerospace engineering though.

Yeah, think he does consulting/contract work. He's a smart guy who has a complete inability to disguise the contempt he has for anyone who disagrees with him, hence his warnings.

I don't think he has contempt if you disagree in an intelligent manner. He does not tolerate fools.
