Line through name

    What does the line though somebody's username mean? I interpret it to be that they are no longer a member of PhysicsForums but I was hopping someone could clarify this.

    I think it means they are either banned/suspended or have requested that their account be deleted.

    Thanks for the clarification. I was wondering because I someone with over 1000 posts with a line through their name, and it didn't seem like a person who should be banned. I was under the impression that anyone with a line was banned, not that it was also voluntary.

    It may be a temorary cooling off period. In a few days the line might be gone.

    They could also be dead.

    Or perhaps in intensive care because MIH neglected to thaw the carp before administering the ritual discipline.

    Perhaps you are referring to courtrigrad, I think he mentioned something about leaving. (Too bad, he did a great job.)

    Doesn't sound good. Definitely doesn't. :biggrin:

    She is very busy and doesn't always take the time to thaw the carp. If you give her a jar of home-made habanero sauce, she will probably take the time to thaw the carp, and if you make some hickory-smoked pulled pork in the meantime, she may wear the stilettos and fishnets during the disciplinary ritual. Not that I would know. :uhh:

    I'm gentle as long as they don't forget the pickles on my BBQ sandwich. That's when I get violent.
