On Thursday, December 27th, I wrote:
The final word: knock off all threats, suggestions, intimations, whatevers, that koolo or any other poster or commenter here should be reported to the police or to his employers, period. Eric thinks I should just ban you, permanently, and after twice suspending you (Wagonwheel) for 15 days for this type of behavior, you have not learned your lesson. This is the last warning! Once more, and I shall take Eric’s suggested action, and impose a permanent ban!
At 5:45 PM EST today, you posted yet another comment referencing a commenter’s position and employment. When Hube protested, John Hitchcock — who saw it before I did — sent the comment into moderation. Then, at 6:03 PM (in another comment Mr Hitchcock sent into moderation), you protested your innocence in the same manner you did so often with koolo (seemingly having finally driven him away), by saying that, now, Hube’s behavior would cause no problem for his employers, where before, it would.
I have no idea what part of This is the last warning! Once more, and I shall take Eric’s suggested action, and impose a permanent ban! is so difficult to understand. Yet you persist, always attempting to stretch the envelope, always trying to see just what you can get away with.
Well, if you were somehow unable to understand the meaning of that very unambiguous sentence, no one else is, including your Editor, the man who wrote it. You had a final warning, not even a month ago, but just couldn’t help yourself. And I am bound by the words I wrote, and have taken the action promised. I very much regret having to do that, but that is what you have pushed me into doing.
