On a serious note, why has this person been banned? I can't be arsed looking through everything, but on the face of it it seems like he/she has been banned for being a cocky theist. Please say that this aint so, some Joe? Surely, there's a better reason than that?

Do we actually have evidence of 'spam', here?

He cross posted the same shit across a multitude of forums. There is more evidence for his trollery than there is for any posited deity.

* Spamming his nonsense all over the intertubes.
* Repeatedly slamming his own website (it's okay to mention and link to it once or twice if relevant to a discussion, or include it in ones signature, which was suggested to him, but that's about it.)
* Preaching instead of arguing.

Basically he came on board in a preachy & spamming manner, we gave him an advisry for multiple offenses and one more chance to get in line, which he promptly abused.

We continue to welcome 'cocky theists, they just have to understand that this is a discussion forum, not another place for them to preach at people and spam their own websites. ;)

So, he's not a very famous person, he's just a very naughty boy

Well, you're just looking at the 'face of it'. You need to examine the essential true nature of the reality of the situation.

Didn't you read? He doesn't have enough time/arse to actually read the thread and examine how Dreher blatantly ignored the FUA and mod advice, but he does have enough time/arse to cast aspersions on the mods. Priorities, priorities! Ah well, I'm glad theists of all types, including spambots and preachers, have someone to advocate for them.

So, you just rely on your opinions based on ignorance and an unwillingness to look to see whether or not the facts support those opinions.

I guess that explains why you're a theist...
