Default Why was malfunction banned?

I am just curius. I notice the banned next to his name. He was been a long time member and yes he does get out of hand sometimes with his views but he was always harmless and I enjoyed reading his comments. Say its not so, first Sotos now Mal?

Sotos was a complete jerk and so was malfunction, he was warned he was on the verge of been banned by myself and he carried on, if he has indeed been banned he was warned and knew what would happen.

I think its good to have a few personalitys.. even if they are annoying at times, it livens the boards up.. now they are all banned or left

That guy was a hardcore fanboy. The funny part was that fanboys usually have top of the line stuff, while he had a GF FX 5200 Ultra.

mal had to be warned thru PM's like every 25 posts or so about his behavior... I know, that doesn't come close to Sotos' "10", but it was still too much bs for us mods to put up with. We were polite, then direct, then flibble-ous.

Thank you:

S.I.N, mrsabidji, jAkUp and anyone else I hadn't mentioned who mention something in favor of me. I appreciate your thoughts and ideas about veiwing tech from all angles as oppose to being narrow minded.

Found a great article that describes a lot of people who frequent forums. You might enjoy it, some may quitely see who they really are or what they are presenting to the public.
