    know that kestrel9000 and I did not get along in the slightest, but it seems to me Pluto you're telling the story of something very ugly that happened here, something that I missed entirely.

    I've followed your links and looked through kestrel's comment history to try to figure it out, but the only thing I'm  seeing  in hiddens is this.

    I sure would like to know more about the diary that led to kestrel9000's banning.

      ...about Kestral's banning. Never saw it.

      I'm four chapters ahead of that.

        •  K9K was banned for being over the top (1+ / 0-)

          insulting and letting his temper rule him. I was afraid that would happen one day, it did.

          The diary that Pluto is defending is gone and I can't speak to what was in it, I didn't read it. But, that diarist is the only person I ever sent a message to the desk about and in no relation to K9K.

          She had gotten so personal with her insults to another very loved and respected Kossack that she called him an ape, his ancestors were called killers. It was over the top.

          This is a meta revenge diary and to me it's too much. Veterans and the issue of PTSD are not fodder for her game.

            kestrel9000 and I had our differences and one truly epic fight, but he was a longstanding member of this community and it's sad to see him banned.  I know that bannings nowadays are not always permanent, and I would hope that after cooling down he would petition kos for reinstatement.

            As for the other thing, I can't really offer an opinion.  I have no idea what happened, and from your description of it I don't really have much interest in learning too more.
