I’ve been following the recent thread discussing the reasons why peace was banned, and while I miss the guy a little (watching posters try and engage him in straightforward debate was like watching someone try to grab a greased eel, and about twice as entertaining), it got me thinking.
Most of the folks who get banned around here seem to be newbies that pop up, act like jackasses, and then quickly get the boot. But IIRC, peace had been here several months and amassed close to 1000 posts before being banned, and from what I understand JDT was a pretty abundant poster too before he finally shot his proverbial wad. (I don’t really read GD, so I didn’t see much of him.)
So, without dredging up old wounds or anything, is there any other prolific or veteran posters that have been banned from the boards? Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but I find it interesting to peruse the archives for the rantings of the kooks that have since been banned, and watch them self-destruct.
