Some of us actually care about other contributors, whether we know them in person, or not.
You're taking this a bit too literally like they are personal friends. I have a lot of respect for people here, much like many others, and don't need their personal contact information to justify that.
So which is it champ..? Talking out your ass does nothing for the conversation...

I notice there are a lot of people being banned from the forum .. for what reasons, I don't know. But I do think that if someone is going to be X'd out of the equation, we could at least have a report on these decisions.. It kind of sucks to see that someone you may have had contact with, or liked their views, or something, gets booted and is never heard from again.
So, my request, assuming that this does not exist, is that when a contributing user is banned, that the community can at least get some kind of public record of this (while signed in) - who, when, and why. And I say contributing members so we don't include spam accounts. Or everything can be included in this list, but I just think it'd be cleaner without the spam accounts.
I just happen to see a lot of these 'Why was so-and-so banned?' threads, and I think it would be nice to know why someone was sent packing, rather than to just suddenly see their status as banned, whereas they no longer have a voice in the forum, and the decision is left a mystery.
BTW I used to do this on another forum of my own, so I am just sharing the idea, as the user's do respect it.
Please let me know your opinions on this.
