    There was a snafu when the new forum first went up where non-demis could access the private forum. I'm pretty sure arn just eliminated all access for the time being, until he sorts out some other upgrade issues.

    Not really. Only thing that happened was applemacdude posting in private discussion.

    It was this am, around 11:30 my time, I think.

    I was lucky enough to be around when it came back. ;)

    It's where they put all of the naughty eyelikeart photos. Very disturbing. 20/20 sent in an undercover investigator, it was like seeing 10mm.

    Was this guy banned because all of his posts are essentially, "I agree?" :confused:

    yeah, I noticed this earlier...Delayed response I guess, heh...I have been kind of wondering about it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay in the back of my mind, and while I was browsing this thread I figured I'd ask. Speaking of which, my question still stands.

    Yeah, look at the search results for all of his posts...kind of funny to look at, though I dunno if he meant to never have anything new to say, or if he just liked to add little comments here and there. I wouldn't say he deserved to be banned for that unless he was doing it intentionally.

    In reading his posts I don't see any reason for his banning. Maybe he was just keeping short? In my opinion there are far more annoying posters than he.

    As far as the Private forums goes, I wish I had the chance to sneak a peek, would be interesting to see what stays private. Especially in the mod forums.
