Good catch, haven't noticed this.

Still, it doesn't change anything in merit - Reggie banned him, because he is behind same provider's NAT than me (instead of same country - sic! - if it would be IP range).

What is funniest thing here, is that I have created ONE account, where I signed it as "/Estel", just to contact moderators, and to deny woody's false (on purpose) claims, that I have disappeared, to scam people's money on Black Alu body replacement.

Reggie know it, as I have contacted him (through mail to Texrat) explaining case. After that, I haven't created any accounts, to not break rules - I have even asked peterleinchen to post something in my name.

Now, let's be honest out here, guys, Reggie screwed it like hell, becoming a little maniacal, and banning someone "for me". I know, that TMO was always a sad joke - powered by propertiary, closed source engine, with content *not* licensed on Free-compliant license, owned by private person, one all-powerfull admin, not even obliged to give forum content to new Foundation. We all know, that this should *never* be a way for maintaining official forum board for maemo.org, and ITT should either remain different, private thing, or be bought completely.

But, what happened now, is out of line even for such badly managed, chaotic thing like TMO. Really, do we wan't to be a part of project, where people get banned, just because random forum admin lost his nervees for a while, and Board member (ivgalvez) doesn't like someone's name?

JCDenton is prime example of how badly maemo "Community" deteriorated and decomposed. It doesn't matter, at all what Reggie "though" about him. The problem is, that no matter if JC would be my brother, neighbor, lover, slave, or totally unknown guy, no one had right to ban him.

What happened here today, is effect of MONTHS of lowering standards in Community management. This was main reason why I have left Council - no one cared for low standards presented by Woody then, and this is resulting beer,, that we're drinking now.
