    Has been forum Banned until August 2009.

    I think he has decided to finish up and leave because of this (play out his last games and concentrate on OTB).

    I would guess it's because he posted a user's real name in the forum.

    bring back fat lady!

    Did he? Is your source on this reliable?

    Fat Lady contributes very much to the "Only Chess" forum. He clearly did a grave misstake if he posted a players real name. But he won't do it again, he learnt his lesson. And the rest of us have also learnt something from this incident.

    I wouldn't say this if he is one of the people with low social skills that know nothing of how to behave in civilized manner - Fat Lady certainly does.

    There is a benefit for all of us to have Fat Lady among us.
    Unban him, let him explain his action, let him have a chance to clearly make a public excuse.
    Lift the ban.

    If this is a first offence then the length of the ban seems excessive. Some people who are repeatedly abusive/offensive in the forums only seem to get short term bans.

    The horses mouth, is that reliable enough ?


    edit. I agree with the other posters, the ban is too severe.

    The horses mouth? It is very severe. I have read Fat Lady's posts and admire his ability and friendliness.

    I sent Fat Lady a Pm last night, advising him to edit the post. or send feedback to change the post. I too think an extended fora ban is overkill. But , Russ did say (In a forrum thread a while ago), that, that was a bannable offence, meaning banned from the site. So in some respects, the mod/admin team did cut him a break, of sorts.

    I recall the post that got Fat Lady that ban.

    That's absurd, and extremely unfair. The post regarded a user who is known to be excessively abusive (MerchantParkPro) and who has made numerous abusive posts - so many that !~Tony~! mentioned deleting his posts for a half hour. Honestly - nearly three years?

    This ban should be lifted, I think 1 month would be more than sufficient.

    The post that was quoted here has been removed
    Exactly. The post listed his name, and said something to the extent of "google him, you'll see what kind of person he really is."

    I'm Spartacus... I think that is a good idea. Everyone state his name on 3...
