In response to Flapjack07's comment:
Bill can be irritating, but he can be ignored easily enough. The reason for his (apparently lengthy) suspension was pretty dumb, IMO.
Really? Even if you go back over his history?
When he started inserting his derogatory political zingers into nearly all of his posts and into EVERY thread he posts in a year ago he was asked not to do it. He kept doing it. Then he was counseled as to a better way to say what he wanted to say.. without the politics. And he ignored it.
Then he was again asked nicely to please not do it... and he again continued to do it.
Then he was told not so nicely to stop mixing the politics in with the Red Sox forum. It was about this time that he realized that even though what he was doing was against the posting rules he could bait people by doing it.. so the political baiting continued.
Then he was counseled by the Mods and told if that if he kept doing it he'd be banned.. so he agreed to stop doing it and he did - for about two days.
Then he got banned for a week and was told that if it continued he'd be banned again for a longer period of time. He assured everyone that it wouldn't happen any more, and it didn't... for about three days. Then it started again.
Now he's been banned again.
I don't understand why any thinking person would a) believe him when he says he won't violate the posting rules any more, and b) would think banning isn't an appropriate punishment.
