But, srsly, I am never happy to ban anyone or to see anyone banned. Every ban deprives a user (to some degree) of their ability to enjoy the site, something I can empathize with as being incredibly frustrating and perhaps even isolating. I also understand that every ban has the potential to cause a shitstorm, that bans may force otherwise good users to endure a certain degree of ignominy and/or inconvenience, and that they interfere with each users potential to contribute to the site. Plus, they make me feel mean. Rules, however, are rules, and I do my best to enforce them fairly and accurately, including when doing so calls for a ban. In this case, Castin decided on the course of action, but it doesn't change my overall feeling.
