Well, I am no expert on the rules of this board, but I will add my own 2¢ by saying that I am confused by why the OP (using the previous username) was banned. I looked at all the posts by JeffreyAbrams and am scratching my head trying to find any nastiness or outrageousness.
Is it really because of the choice of the name?
Or was a mistake made in shutting down the account? (My own bank just had to correct an errror that they had made when they missed recording a deposit that I had made)
In any case, I think it would have been helpful and instructive (and courteous) to have given a reason for shutting down the account. I would have given the OP the benefit of doubt-- that they had unwittingly violated a rule.
