You spent how many years here from the outset and you really thought that you'd be cut loose with no recourse? C'mon, pull the other one. All bans are subject to review. Jays, how many times did SB make a comeback? Or Krusty? Whoreable? Hell, if you read anything, you read that I redeemed Altron, and was working on getting LL back. LL, fer Christ's sake. I had the votes to get him back, if I could find him. Might have cost me a few concessions, but I could have swung it. You've been outed so many times it's beyond joke status. Your reinstatement was passed long since, as evidenced that RJ wasn't banned from the outset. As you said, you didn't change anything about your posting style.
As for fusing the users ... As I recall, username changes were $5 by paypal. As this would involve technically 2 username changes, I expect a Private Message to Fluffy with the pertinent financial information would put that to bed in short order.
Either way, it's good to finally have you back.
