The mods quickly punted it to JM and it spun off at least two threads into HE before the ban hammer fell on her.

She may be a nice person, but she's either shockingly naive about the day to day workings of teh interwebs, or cunningly aware of them and using this little ruckus (obligatory link to battle scooters) to drive up hit count (thus advertising revenue) on her own site. Possibly both, she was clueless about what really happened but has grabbed the tiger by it's tail.

The best thing that you can do at this point is simply forget about it and get back to what this thread is really about.

Um. What is this thread about again?

Nah, what he missed, was the edge of the pull off, and it's a BIG pulloff!
