    You need to ask K. direct.

    You made the comment not Karthick.
    Therefore on what did you base it.

    I was not aware he had been banned again, if this is indeed the case. If so I am sure he brought it entirely on himself as usual so I would not bother with any attempts to make him sound like a martyr.

    The 'mechanical' reason that Matt cannot pursue this matter is that MS, FC, Y, Y2, Y3 (and perhaps Y4) have all been banned. I can't confirm this because when I look at the members list I get
    'Sorry! The administrator has disabled the list of members.'
    The causual reason that Matt cannot pursue this matter is something you should direct to K.
    K. is the admin. that is controlling accesses to the bb.

    The following accounts owned by Matt: > MS, FC, YAMAHA, Y2, Y3 (and perhaps Y4), have all been banned.
    This followed a 48 hour suspension for posting unseemly material.
    No further information is publicly available from the admins nor the mods. No obvious new infractions after the 48-hour ban have been sighted. One post had one sentence that Bill tried to beat-up desultory; but that was a tired and transparent response by Bill.
    Matt is not a martyr by any stretch of imagination. He is simply a casualty of a policy we can only guess at; (even the policy posts have been removed).
    Matt is but a demonstration of what Barry called yesterday "Newton's second law of bb's".

    I don't expect he will be able to post again.

    Not much sympathy here. Signing up hydra accounts to circumvent a ban would lead to a longer ban on any half-decent bulletin board.

    That will change when the board drops back to normal mode from dev mode.

    Unless you are on here 24 hrs a day it would be easy to miss a post of his that was subsequently deleted by the mods or admins.

    I assume you are referring to my post #48 in the NECG Australin Junior Chess Squad. His last sentence was uncalled for.

    Sounds like some sort of "marketing puff" on your belf here starter.
    Matt was nothing more than a casualty of his own behaviour.
    A behaviour that was often unacceptable.

    As I said Matt had no one to blame but himself.

    OOHH
    I would not have called the board by that name.


    K. ...please take your finger of the EJECT button...it was KB's post not mine.

    Don't bother replying to my posts on this topic.
    KB asked was referring rating issues to Matt. I helped KB by telling him not to expects a response.
    I am only guessing what happened. I told KB that.
    Please address your posts to Kevin (or K.) if you want to pursue.

    I am OK with the admins action being irreversible; he is the bb owner.


    regards

    Sorry I cannot comply, given what you say isnt entirely accurate.

    Your post #576 was far more than telling him not to expect a response (you did that in #570 ).

    Actually if I did I would do it via PM.

    I am not defending him. I don't even know the facts.

    The average punter probably is struggling to know why Matt Sweeney was banned. It is not helped by the parts of the story being in various places by senior posters. Those who can read the shoutbox can see some information. Those that can see the Coffee Lounge can see other information. Those that can see your feedback thread can see another version.
    This thread title deserves to at least see a summary of all other posts input on this topic.
    Unfortunately, I can't provide a 100% coverage because there are parts of the bb that I can't see... for starters...the moderators forum.
    What I can help the average punter with is a snapshot of the posts that I thought gave some insight. I include these below. But clearly the moderators know more.

    1st useful post

    2nd useful post

    3rd post, but probably just speculative
    Quote Originally Posted by Bill Gletsos

    On top of that there was no apology whatsoever by Matt for his behaviour and his unnecessary crude language whilst posting drunk.
    Note this post suggests three reasons for being banned:
    > MS posted crudely while drunk. Actually I thought Matt got a 48-hour suspension for this offence.
    >> no apology for posting crudely when drunk. Pure guesswork by Bill or does he know something. Who asked for the apology?
    >>> posted after the 48 hour ban was lifted (or as Bill calls it...didn't keep his mouth shut). Surely it was just not the act of posting, but some offensive single post(s) that got Matt banned; but which? Have they been deleted by mods?

    4th post
    Quote Originally Posted by Kevin Bonham

    This post looks like Kevin believes Bill's >> no apology.


    So, you be the judge. Do you know why Matt was banned in the period between the 48-hour suspension was lifted and he started using the hydras (YAMAHAx)?

    ps Bill My final lines in post #13 on this thread do not apply to this summary post.
