Hey,

What's happened to Varon?

I searched his username and now it has a line in the middle of it. Banned?

He is no longer with us.

I have found some usernames which doesn't have lines in middle but they are not bold as our usernames are. What does that mean?

Unless they have N/A under their names, that means that they never completed registration.

I hope so, he wasn't banned, he left, but I am still in contact with him. He is such a wonderful person.

If anyone wants to contact jared, let me know.

But I thought members couldn't cancel their accounts and Mods wouldn't. In the past, people have been told that stopping their memberships consists simply of not making any more posts. I guess that's not the case now?

He requested to be banned, his account wasn't canceled.

Ah. If you talk to him again, let him know I was asking after him. :smile:

Please note old user can change his email address but later not follow the confirmation link - he then automatically becomes "unconfirmed" user. Sometimes it is accidental (mail problem), sometimes it is deliberate.

He was temp banned, and he decided not to come back and requested a permanent ban. :cry:

Let me know if you wish to contact him.

Insanity, Evo,

nismara is a friend of mine as well, I drop him e-mails when there is something I think he should see here on the forums. He was busy last time I sent him one about a week ago. He always gets back to me, I miss him too.

Rhody... :approve:

Thanks, other then the craft beer thread, I don't think we really shared any other interests, but he seemed greatly interested and we replied to each other often.

I had an interesting exchange with nismaratwork too about dreams, where he showed himself to be quite a reasonable chap.
When I saw he had been banned it definitely drew my attention.

Thanks for the explanation.
I still wonder though what the point is of being banned permanently over simply being an inactive member?

Most people are banned as crackpots, or refusing to follow the rules, or both. A very few request a ban to prevent them from posting. Jared and nismar fall into the latter.

Of course, that actually makes a lot of sense! :smile:
But wait! That means all our frequent posters are at risk! :surprised
Like tiny-tim or micromass, or, god forbid, Evo! :cry:

Not Applicable

Well I know that. But what does it mean when placed under someone's username?

And does that mean nismaratwork will never be able to post on PF again?

Sorry Evo :tongue:

I believe it means that they no longer show up on searches, even though you might still stumble on one of their posts

Nismar is not N/A, he requested a permanent ban, so technically, yes, he could come back. I doubt that he will.
