Me and Justin have reached an official agreement. I have restored his membership status under one condition:
That he post NOTHING, unless it is a valuable contribution to the forum (his famous lists, links to sites, info, etc.) and nothing more, not even comments. Violating the condition will resort to deletion of posts in violation, and actual permanant banning.
Plus the rule of listening to staff instead of arguing with them, even if that should've been obvious from the beginning.
He has agreed to the condition and is now back with full membership status.
Please don't mess it up, Justin. This is your lucky, one and only chance to make up for before. I will NOT be so forgiving next time.
Maybe after I see progress for a good period of time I'll let you back into normal conversations.
Thanks for understanding, and welcome back.
Stingray! Why in the hell would you do that!? After he plagued the site with crap and circumvented your ban with a second account? I think this is asking for nothing but more trouble. Big mistake!
Hey as long as he follows the rules Im fine with it. I liked that he was always trying to keep the site alive anyway. Modivation was good, but mistakes are always made the first time. :P

Alan, slow down. I knew you were going to say that.
Look, if he violates my condition he gets banned forever. Simple as that.
Besides, I've been in his situation before... look at my older posts at SPF. I've done so many childish things there at his age, it's a wonder I'm still registered there. I posted useless things and material without proper research, like Justin. I've upset staff members, like Justin. I've even created a second account to circumvent a ban as well, like Justin.
But look at me now. All I post there are info and pictures, and so far respect for my presence has slowly grown, to the point I am now friends with Overscan, the administrator.
Therefore I believe Justin should be given just the same chance to fix his mistakes... under a condition that I hope works.
Have some faith.
I have very little faith in anything with a bad history.
But it's your choice, not mine.
Then that means you have little faith in Stingy! Ouch.
Point taken, but I retain my opinion on his choice.

I second. I think most of his post would also be taken more seriously if he had better typing skills. His text-message grammar and spelling gets really annoying to read.
We have here the latest in primitive technology.
Internet + Opinions = OMG we are SCREWED!
I agree, I also find them very hard to read sometimes, so I see a need for improvement there. But no one's perfect. Let he who has not made ONE grammatical or spelling mistake in their life cast the first stone.

No probs. We all deserve a second chance, don't we? Hopefully you will post in a more sensible way this time around, perhaps less in quantity but better in quality, i.e. writing only when you think it can bring something to the discussion!
I took your advice and changed my avatar to the Australian flag.
