    When were you last active? Why not simply continue with this account?

    You'll notice I never use a different handle than "Neverfly."
    What is in a name? Identity.

    While some people may feel fine about sock puppets and such, others of us prefer to maintain the same identity and let our histories speak for themselves.
    To keep and maintain that identity.

    If continuing with that new account, why not change the name? But in the end, it makes a sock puppet out of him, with his account banned( which he cannot be a sock since he is a squirrel.)

    Troublesome.

    He appears to have joined Jan. 21st and made no posts... (Cough! Ban Log!)

    I will vouch for his unbanned-worthyness. He's a good man with lots to offer. He makes NF look like carebear. Please unban him.

    Why not use his current username?...because some of us are attached to our moniker.

    That's not a strong vouch- that applies to even the most bannable members.

    Even so, NMSquirrel is very easy going. That he was banned here was a bit of a shock- I speculated mistaken for Spam.

    Ok, I'll oblige. He doesn't have any posts though, which means the account was probably banned for spamming, which would remove all his posts as well (which couldn't have been more than 50). Any idea how he could have been mistaken for a spammer?

    Edit: Done.

    Well... he's a Christian...


    Although, if there was a ban log, all you would need to do was look up the history.

    No problem. My apologies if he was indeed mistakenly banned as a spammer.

    We have a sort of ban log up in the mod section at the moment and in the modCP and adminCP. . I was having trouble finding info. Banning spammers usually removes a lot of information. I can see he was active and was banned, but couldn't find out for what.

    We wouldn't just ban someone for being Christian and certainly not remove all his posts.

    Well, I have a ban log, and couldn't find him on it. I think he was just suspended. For some reason, temporarily suspended members do not show up there. I don't know who did the suspension.

    I think no one has yet asked the key questions:

    1) What does NM stand for? Why does he not sit?

    2) Is that a server in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?
