I didn't go into every thread, but from what I did see all he did was point out that there are many threads started that could easy be put elsewhere. He was just stating what others had said time and time again.

I remember one poster after the "great exodus" that revived a lot of threads from the same date in the previous year. He didn't get banned.

It's a warning shot.
Today was just the straw that broke the came's back.

Hopefully he does not learn from this, continues the idiocy, and gets the boot permanently.

The promised land awaits us brothers and sisters.

A land of milk and honey.

A land where I use admin powers to bestow sweet new custom avatars and user titles on you. Like mana falling from heaven.

Keep fighting brothers and sisters!!!

If only there had been a cat around, this whole unpleasantness might have been avoided.
