About a week or two went by and I thought I would check back in. Wouldn't you know it, but I was permanently banned. I guess the cadre of fanboys over at MFoL actually accomplished a goal for once. I laughed it off and went about my business.
The next thing I know I get an email from "Nathan Glover" spamming me about the improvements he made to said forum. He was quite proud of them it seems. Being that i was banned without a single contribution to the forum I wrote him back and in a gentlemanly manner asked him to stop spamming me.
This was his reply:
It really is nothing personal, and I did not enjoy banishing you. To be quite honest, I did not want to as it goes against my ethos. However, I had to do so in order to preserve harmony. I had received complaints, and I was outnumbered by the voices of the other staff. I wish you nothing but the best, and hope that you find the light that you seek! All else is tertiary! You can be assured that you won't receive anymore emails and I deeply apologize for any anguish caused!
All the best,
Translation: I'm a big pussy and we are all terrified of you.
Of course, this left me with a deep sense of satisfaction.
It's the simple pleasures.
