Not quite sure what set you off so badly to apparently go and delete your account, but just know I always appreciated your posts here and hope you'll consider a return one day.

    I don't blame him for being pissed for his very questionable ban a couple of days back but account deletion is pretty drastic.

    Hope he comes back, he was a great asset to the community.

    I would guess that there was many e-mail or PM messages in the background that went into the whatever happened as well.

    Never know for sure, but so long Kano...have a good one and be happy, whatever that looks like for you, wish you well.

    That's unfortunate. If any of you keep in touch with him and would care to relay the message, please let him know my door is always open and he can e-mail me. I'd be glad to work with him on the situation.

    I always thought his posts were well thought out and appreciated his input. I noticed he got attacked at times and maybe he just finally snapped and had enough.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    When someone was part of this community as long as he was and contributed as much and as often as he did, I am surprised to see him leave. I of all people know that I rub a lot of people the wrong way and vice versa, but that is just life. Hope you find solace away from this site @DMKano and you will be missed.

    At least he just left without making a big dramatic post about how he's leaving like some have done in the past.

    Maybe someone hacked his account. I think that's more likely than him deleting. I don't always agree with him (especially when it comes to comments about various development teams), but it's hard for me to believe he deleted his account because of a ban.

    His wife probably saw an anime banner here and thought it was a porn site and deleted his account.....

    Possibly, though if so he could have easily created a 2nd one to let everyone know what happened.

    Also, he was extremely cautious about security, I'd be surprised if someone could hack him.

    Good points.

    I've had strange head issues in the past where I wasn't banned (I've been banned multiple times), but felt like I had humiliated myself. I remember almost deleting, but that would have just made me feel worse.

    For me, there are few things worse than backing down to the point of not being able to respond. I mean, you can just not post for a while if something is bothering you, right?

    My third theory, based on my own experiences is, maybe he got drunk?

    Perhaps, in the light of current events, he didn’t want to be part of a crowd with so many, formerly hidden, racist people anymore. And I can fully understand that him getting a ban while certain others can spew their garbage uninterrupted could be the straw that broke the camels back. Just an assumption.

    I almost wrote something else, but I thought about what you are really saying here.

    Are you saying there is a bias about banning that accepts bigotry offenses but doesn't accept trivial offenses?

    I think there is a fundamental thing that happened that we aren't privy to that we should be.

    What, exactly, got him banned?

    I don’t think there is bias. I do however think it can be really frustrating to see others get away with very offensive posts unhindered while you get reported for something as trivial as the ‘Marketing in 2020 Summed Up’ thread. Assuming that that is what got him banned in the first place of course. Combined with some members displaying dubious stances on certain matters could make one decide to pack their bags and leave.

    In the end we don’t know so this is all just me speculating, it does seem rather plausible to me though.

    Wait, those meme videos that he posted got him banned? The sarcastic/ironic "Brand" ones?

    And the Caffynated/random racist/Klash2def threads didn't get any of them banned?

    If that is the case, then maybe he is smarter than anyone thinks. The rules are clear. So why aren't the worst offenders being handled? Part of the charm of this site is not having to deal with that bullshit.
