    I saw his post in Michael's Girls thread @ 11:30 & it said Banned. That post was @ 11:27 - so, unless he changed his header, I guess he is.

    I was wondering too... I clicked on his name and tried to suss out from recent posts what might have been the trigger, but nothing obvious.

    That's a shame, but his posts sometimes shave the boundaries.

    I didn't see so much commotion over who pushed the button when the righties were banned. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Did Trump appoint a new administrator? I heard something vague about a presidential order and some kind of woodenboat forum....

    Maybe Scot looked up 'gorram.'

    It may be, my memory's getting shaky as ... what are those shaky things called?

    It may be that whomever we're talking about made a remark concerning the worthiness of a traditional neck-stretching legal penalty for a particular treasonous orange usurper and his testudinal Red minion in our Senate—which was then mistaken for meaning someone else, a tro... posting member, instead. Which would constitute a threat of violence, in the mind of someone being sensitive to the good reputation of our WBF host, appropriately were that the case.

    This, based on past personal experience walking on the freshly mopped bilge floor after stepping in a pile of shirt.

    Also, Mister S is reputedly reportedly repeatably unthrilled with post-mortem band-camp recruiting threads. Jus' sayin.'

    Oz maybe got over zealous with his fury over the erastz president and the complicit Senate majority leader's anti-Constitutional agenda. The gorram bursteds.

    Better?

    My thoughts were similar to you, Jim, but I have no certainty so didn't want to imply anything. Ozna's anger in that direction is not exclusive, by any means. But I'm keenly aware of what can be expressed and what not, not just in terms of not wanting banishment (I greatly value this forum for social interaction, especially at a time like this), but also not wanting to be visited by an... um... official from the Treasury Department. EDIT: Excuse me, the Secrets are no longer under Treasury, but now Department of Homeland Security.
