    Ha ! Said the Pom. I guess we are into name calling now ?

    No worries. I am opinionated. And I may be pompous. Probably arrogant to boot.

    But I care. That's the only reason I'm part of this discussion, regardless of what anyone thinks of me personally.

    As for comparing the guy who has been a valuable part of the community, even with his gruff online persona, to a wife beater seems as bad as than anything Frank ever said.

    Following is the post by Frank that resulted in the decision to ban him. Warning, if you do not wish to see Frank's post or have any concerns that it may offend you, do not click the following link:

    Guess I missed the brouhaha. Until I saw this post today, that is.

    Not really all that surprised by Frank's comment. Had I seen it, I probably would've said something like, "No, but we'll be happy to incorporate a Sepia 911."

What is the ultimate goal here?
    ^ Among the more prescient posts in this thread, though I haven't read most of its 300+ posts. Yes, NPC politics can definitely have unintended consequences for people who have nothing to do with the political matter at hand, and don't wish to. (I got to learn the un-fun way.)

    I hope those involved can find a good way forward. The ESR is a pretty special thing, in my view (as a 914 guy who nevertheless has always felt welcome here).
