Not a criticism. Just an idle question. I understand that (as a rule) the Mod staff here at USMB declines to discuss the basis for any decision to "ban" any guest. As a result, when we notice a regular has gotten a heave-ho, many of us are left kind of in a limbo -- reduced to guessing and plain old wondering -- 'what the fuck got that poor bastard banned?" Is there a reason for the silence? I mean, does it serve any particular purpose? Not a very important question. I really was just curious having seen (today) that a regular (i.e., a regular troll) ate a ban.
