Well, we need to plead for CH -- see my tag.
I was banned once, also (for 2 days was all -- the LONGEST 2 days of my life).
I know, hard to believe. Is there a sweeter, less caustic human being on the planet than me? I doubt it.
But still, the Mods found disfavor with one little (set of) comment(s).
Yes, I think it's time to set up a CH ping list. Every time I've ever read a post by CH, it was always a voice of reason. I strongly suspect this was a case of either a misunderstood pun - or an unattended computer that was logged in.
