I don't usually discuss moderation action publicly, but in the case of high-profile members, it is sometimes important to let everyone know what happened.
Asuna has been perma-banned from the site. Most of you know that he has been temp-banned a number of times for various infractions and significant disruption to the site. He is generally friendly and seems to be a nice guy until someone contradicts him or questions the value of his innumerable two-word replies. He was previously banned for PMing threatening messages to many members. He seems to have cleaned up his act and attempted to reform his behavior here. There have been no more threatening PMs or open flame wars.
The final infractions was that we found that he had created a number of alternate accounts to help bolster his position. For example, MystereMaz is, in fact, Asuna and has posted numerous messages supporting Asuna and condemning Jon. This is explicitly forbidden in our rules and demonstrates his willingness to mislead people.
Combined with his previous infractions and the consensus of the value he brings to the site, the decision to permanently ban him from the site was made by the moderation team.
This decision is not open to debate or discussion. If you have questions or concerns about it, please feel free to PM me.
