was another reason.
Yes, there apparently was, and no, the details are unlikely to become public.
I'm not speaking in an official capacity on this, just as an observer. If you're going along, reading a thread and then *bam* someone gets banned,
it is rarely just for that.
While it is possible to be insta-banned for doing something really bad, the majority of bannees are given all the rope they need to hang themselves in
U2U's, and invariably, that's what they do.
If a staff member sends you a U2U asking you to cool it or explain yourself, I strongly recommend not copping an attitude or trying to lay out some
B.S., because that's how you get banned.
And those members who try to drum up drama by posting those U2U's publicly are so screwed up that if I had a ban button I would use it on them
myself. You don't have to be a staff member to find that unacceptable.
As for the gypsyskyes
account being banned, my advice is to share your account password with no one
, unless you are willing to accept
responsibility for what happens -- which is usually a ban.
knew quite well what he was doing and chose a path that led away from ATS.
That's a choice any of us can make at any time, but I recommend being sure that's the direction a member wants to go before burning the bridge on
the way out.
